Nice lighter pumpkin beer. Smooth taste, not overdone. Was in the top 5 at Pumpkinfest this year.

Pumpkinfest in cans!? Best before on the topic of the cardboard packaging. Poured into a snifter. Deep amber with white inch head that leaves mild lacing. Blanket of foam slides down the glass as I sip. Smell is cinnamon, nut meg and pumpkin pie. Taste is Oktoberfest style with nut mug and spices. Not a heavy beer, very refreshing. Cheers!

Deep orange in color with an attractive light tan head. Everything else about the beer is light too from mouthfeel to flavor profile. Modest dry spices on nose, cloves and ginger. Light yam flavor. Trends to crusty bready end of spectrum with gentle honey sweetness. Floral and light lemon.

Too many pumpkin beers last year, but had to try this one. Nice flavors of pumpkin and squash in this one, not too heavy on the dry spice which makes this one a decent beer to drink. Flavors blend well and at a lighter abv, drinks pretty good with a dry spice finish.

A- Pours a deep ruby with a 1 finger head that leaves a bunch of great lacing.

T- A little thin on the taste, and not as prevalent as on the nose.

M- Good mouthfeel. Taste doesn't linger.

D- An above average pumpkin beer.

Poured into a 16 oz beer glass.

Look: Beautiful deep copper color. Slight bubbles. 2 finger cream-colored head.
Smell: Lightly spicy, just a hint of the pumpkin
Taste: Like the smell...light pumpkin spice. Toasty. Very slight hop. Little after taste
Feel: Clean, crisp, drinkable.

My second pumpkin beer. This seems like the time and effort has been put into it. I like it. If on tap again, I would get it.

Look - copper color, two finger fluffy off white head, clear in appearance
Smell - pumpkin, candied yams, spice, cinnamon....smells delicious
Taste - This is where this beer falls off. You definitely get some pumpkin/spice notes but you also get like this soapy/sour type taste along with it.

Overall - There are better pumpkin beers out there to try.

From the can this beer was amber in color with a small tan head.

Nice aroma of pumpkin and spice.

Taste was a little less impressive. Pumpkin and nutmeg, but underwhelming.

Light to medium bodied.
