look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look: Darker brown almost like an apple cider.

Smell: Sweet aroma with cinnamon sugar and pumpkin spice.

Taste: Smooth crisp pumpkin pie taste. A balanced blend of flavors that are just right.

Mouthfeel: This is brew is best served ice cold. The colder this brew is, the better it tastes. I would defiantly say that one wouldn’t be enough but it depends on your preference.

Overall: the only way to describe is having a big piece of pumpkin pie with whip cream on top. This brew is 5.7% alc. by vol. but goes down so smooth. You can’t have just one. By the end of the night we were all drinking this seasonal collection brew

Crystal clear. Dark amber to light copper color. The fizzy, white head disappears almost instantly. No lacing.

Heavy spice in the aroma. Some sweet malt in the background, with a little bit of a funky metallic aroma.

Heavy spice also in the flavor. Probably too much. I would prefer more sweetness to provide a balance. The spice blend is great, though. One of the better pumpkin spice profiles I've had.

A light to medium bodied beer. Prickly, but nice carbonation. Not overly fizzy. A moderate length finish.

I really thought this beer was going to fall flat. It definitely blew my expectations out of the water.

I poured this beer into a fluted glass. On the pour I got about three fingers of foam that went away really quickly. The coloring is a vibrant orange.

The smell was surprisingly good. I like the plentiful pumpkin, nutmeg, and clove smells.

The flavor is really overwhelming. The nutmeg and clove come through really strong. Unfortunately the back end is a punch in the jaw.

This is an average pumpkin beer. I would recommend many other over this one, but this one works for tailgates and hanging around the campfire.

a way overly spiced pumpkin beer in my opinion. on tap at dave and busters, this one pours a nice amber shade with a faint orange glow and a fleeting off white head. the nose is nutmeg and clove, a little vanilla, and red and caramel malts. no squash to speak of. the same is true of the flavor, where the heavy spice dose totally crowds out any real pumpkin thats in this beer. its very desserty, like a pumpkin pie, seasonally okay, but to me id like to see more of the actual pumpkin. all the spice makes it a tough beer to session, even though the body is just medium and the carbonation is good. its not a bad beer, dont get me wrong, and definitely better than some of the other blue moon seasonals, but ive come to like my pumpkin beers to showcase the vegetable, not the spice, and this one is just too spice based for me. others may disagree.
