This ale is one of the better demonstrations of "in the mouth of the beholder". I agree with DonkeyRunner below that this is tasteless & watery. I was surprised to see it rated higher than a 2, so I guess people are more generous than I, even when they don't like it. Almost makes you wonder whether someone was trying to cash in on the coconut water craze by marching out pumpkin water for the season......

Dark orange with a thin white head. Smells like pumpkin pie with some vegetal pumpkin pulp. The pie spice is thankfully muted but so is any actual flavor. Thin and vapid taste like someone added 1/4 water to a 3/4 glass of regular pumpkin beer.

this really is pretty good. a rusty colored brew with nice clarity and huge bubbles looking like a soda pop in the glass. the nose is great, honey sweetness and a bready malt backbone, it honestly smells like graham crackers, which i find majorly appealing. there is some more spice int he flavor, cinnamon and nutmeg, maybe vanilla too, and not a ton of pumpkin itself. its okay that its not there though, because the spices are only subtle, its a great fall beer, with a perfectly appropriate seasonal bouquet, and just enough hops to balance the sweetness before it finishes (rather dry for the style). carbonation is really high, which i think gives life to it and makes it seem real fresh. i could hammer a sixer of these no problem, its flavorful enough but not heavy in the least. one of the better base beers from wasatch i have had. much be better on draft than in a bottle based on these ratings...
