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.

Clear amber pour with a slightly garnet cast. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.

Light nose of pumpkin and spice. Lighter than typical in intensity.

Light body slightly smoother than water. Below normal carbonation level with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a somewhat stronger finish.

The flavor profile is rather good. It is flavorful, not very complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of spices that never really separate. The middle shows a bit of pumpkin and no hop flavor. As the finish fades, pumpkin makes its strongest showing and a bit of hop bitterness surfaces.

Orange-gold beer with a thin foam that recedes quickly. Smells faintly of nutmeg and allspice, gourd and citrus. Taste is bready and malty with some nutmeg presence, lightly citrus, faint sweetness. Body is medium. Finish is clean. This reminds me of a marzen with a washing of pumpkin pie spices. Decent enough and not overly spiced which is a good thing.

I enjoyed this pumpkin spiced beer. Nothing overpowered me, I found it to be beer with a warm friendly aftertaste of pumpkin/spices. I would buy again!

Was a hit at Pumpkinfest this year. Right up in the top 2. Full spice and pumpkin flavor. Nice look to it and a great finish.

This reminded me in a very subtle way of New Belgium's "Pumpkick," given the introduction of a countering citrus - sour note in the middle-finish. Cisco does a nice job of providing deviation from the standard pumpkin-spiced seasonal, although I believe New Belgium's offering is more successful at it.

Pours a beautiful amber orange to red and smells like a boozy fall. This is a solid pumpkin ale and I would do again. Would have to try Pumking by Southern Tier first though.
