Served in a Harviestoun Old Engine Oil tulip/snifter at Local Option.

Got some swordfish tacos, so why not go for a new "pumpkin" beer, eh? it pours a hazy copper-straw topped by a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises powdered sugar, perfume, sweet flowers, toasted biscuit, very light cocoa, and a kiss of cinnamon. The taste holds notes of toasted gourd, light toffee, brown sugar, clove, cinnamon, and black pepper. Things are like a bland, overly-spicy pumpkin pie that was left in the oven too long. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda slick feel. Overall, an underwhelming beer, one that seems to aspire to be a better pumpkin-style beer, but one that only succeeds at mediocrity.

This is the October 2013 batch, so it's almost a year old. This is just really dry. I do not get any sweet sensation at all. Just a ghost of something fruity and the dry spicy edge.

Pours with a lovely, thick mashed potatoes head, off white in color. The brew is a coppery red-brown in the De Proef narrow tulip. A little something woody but I don't know what they mean on the label by "maple roasted." Some spice, like cinnamon and a touch of cloves, but mostly generic toasted bitterish spice. Huge suds that never give up. Your mustache will be covered with the stuff.

An interesting peculiar concoction. I think the Missouri squash farmers got the best deal out of this. From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Liquors in Denver.

Pours a clear caramel color with a small white head. Smells pretty good, quite a bit of squashy goodness here along with a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Caramel malt lends some support, though it doesn't smell too heavy. Doesn't taste as good as it smells, however. Spices contribute some astringency, and overwhelm the malt a bit. I don't get much maple; squash is dialed down compared to the nose. Body is medium-light, a touch thin. Finishes with spices, faint maple sweetness, butterscotch. A decent, easy to drink autumn beer, but the recipe could use some tweaking.
