Bad idea to can this beer, should be bottled, canning imparts a negative flavor to this beer, and muddies the water so to speak. Don't waste your time here move along. I've tried just about every pumpkin brew on the market and this may be the worst. Southern tier pumking, cigar city good gourd, and samuel adams 20lbs of pumpkin being the three best.

L: Dark, toasted almond brown with no head.
S: Spice - cloves, pumpkin flesh, some cinnamon. Not getting any nutmeg. Not complex, but not the most one-note smelling pumpkin beer either.
T: Holy cinnamon and cloves, Batman! Cinnamon is MUCH stronger than I anticipated from the smell. It's all I can taste, actually. Maybe this beer needs time to mellow out a bit? Canned 9/25/15, drank 10/13/15.
F: Not grainy at all, but I feel like I just licked a cinnamon stick. Dry tingliness on the tongue and in the throat.
O: I feel bad, this could probably be a tasty beer with some time, it's just pretty overwhelming as it is now.

I was all around disappointed with this beer considering the quality of beers Due South usually puts out. I will say there was good lacing and head retention, but the flavor was all around bland for a pumpkin beer. Most if not all of the pumpkin/ spice flavor comes in the first second of the beer hitting your pallet. There are definitely light hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, but the taste lingering on the pallet was less reminiscent of a pumpkin beer and more in the realm of an oktoberfest with toast or bread notes. There was little desire to go back for another sip with a slight bitterness in the finish.(this is also coming from a guy who really enjoys IPA's so bitterness in its place is something I really enjoy)

I recently tried three pumpkin beers. This one, Magic Hat Wilhelm Scream, and Southern Tier Pumking. I would rate this one in the middle with Magic Hat the lowest, and Pumking the best. Isle of MaGourdo is a decent pumpkin beer, but nothing spectacular.

Even though I'm a thousand miles from home, the legacy of woodychandler lives on in the trunk of my car. This beer is another from him. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bronze/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild pumpkin. Taste is pumpkin, malts, subtle spices, smooth and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall not the most flavorful pumpkin beer out there, but not bad either.

Brown in color with a murky complexion. There's a quarter inch of tan resting on top. I smell pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg. The taste is very subdued in comparison to the nose. I'm getting some pumpkin pie spice, but it is faint. The mouth is very dry and moderately carbonated.
