12 oz bottle into Sam Adams glass. No date.
Semi-clear pumpkin color. nose is spice, mostly clove and cinnamon. Taste follows nose. Feel is light. Overall very nice for what it is but more spice here than pumpkin.

Smells and looks like pumpkin. Very cute can. Taste is like Whale's Tale Pale Ale with some spices that don't super taste like pumpkin. Overall a solid seasonal, but nothing super special.

Served out of a can.

A bright pumpkin orange color beer with a one finger head of tiny, finely compacted off-white bubbles. Minimal retention and lacing.

The aroma is delicious, with a slight yeast profile and big notes of fresh baked pumpkin pie and gingerbread. Aroma is predominantly caramel malt dominated. Big notes of sticky toffee and butterscotch alongside ginger and cinnamon spice in the background.

Upfront you get sweet flavors of savory toffee and light butterscotch candy. Gradually, a restrained but noticeably pungent pumpkin, cinnamon and gingerbread flavor sets in midpalate, finishing with more malty notes of creme brulee and caramel syrup, drizzled over french toast. There is also a moderate yeast profile lingering somewhere amongst the palate with flavors of vanilla, clove, parsley and mild bubblegum. Lightly hopped with notes of mildly bitter pine resin throughout so as to counteract the sweetness. It's important to note everything is in perfect balance here. At no time does this become overtly sugary or cloying

Creamy in body with medium weight and moderate carbonation. Smooth and crisp. Highly drinkable. Abv non-existant.

Overall Comments: An extremely delicious, creamy, mid strength, pumpkin ale that offers sessionability and doesn't compromise on flavor. This is definitely up there on the list of my top 10 pumpkin ales.

Not sure if it's this batch or not, but it tastes a little too bitter to me. Perhaps it is one of the pumpkin pie spices, like cardamom or clove. The bitterness lingers way past each sip, making it difficult for me to enjoy. Nice color, though: beautiful orange glow with two-finger head. Legions of tiny bubbles rise to join said head.

After bitterness fades, the tongue is left with a thick coating. Nice aroma of pumpkin pie.

Overall, this beer was not as enjoyable as the other pumpkin ales I've tried, like Shipyard's Pumkin Ale or Harpoon's Pumkin UFO. If I have time within the season, I may try it again.

This baby is way past it's prime, but I scored a sixer real cheap here in FLA. I needed some beers I didn't need to think about.

This baby is pretty in the glass. Slightly red, a little hazy and a medium head. The aroma is fresh and slightly malty. There might be a hint of pumpkin.

The taste is of a very mild brown ale with a hint of pumpkin. The aftertaste is clean with just the tiniest bit of bitter and pumpkin coming through.

I got spoiled by Jackie O's pumkpin beer this year - one of the best ever. This is an OK mild one and the sixer of cans was a buck less than one little bottle of Jackie O's.
