look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: 1 inch head, orange-brown in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: pumpkin spice, cinnamon, clove, toasted malt

Taste: nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, doughy wheat, and pumpkin spice

Mouthfeel: sweet that looses its sweetness at the end, high carbonation, medium bodied

Overall: An average to slightly above average pumpkin ale. The doughiness adds a different dimension to this one, yet it is nothing to go out of my way for. I would get this again or just as well pass.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.

A- deep orange, two finger head that stays around a bit. Little to no lacing.

S- pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon

T- sweet pumpkin pie. Heavy malt with a malty aftertaste

M- not enough carbonation, medium body.

Overall an average pumpkin brew. Good for drinking at thanksgiving dinner.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.

A - Clear copper color with a nice two-finger off-white head. Some patchy/clumpy lacing.

S - Medium strength aroma of nutmeg, some pumpkin, hint of cinnamon, allspice. Smells decent enough.

T- Taste follows the nose almost exactly, with pumpkin taking a backseat and spices forward. Spice blend a little heavy on the nutmeg, but overall pretty good. Then again, I'm a total sucker for autumn spices. Lacking "oomph".

M - Light bodied bordering on watery, with medium carbonation. Very drinkable, but could use more body.

O - Decent enough "autumn" beer, but not complex or rich enough to be considered anything special. A dumb-downed version of a craft fall seasonal. About what I expected from BM.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Poured about a 1 finger white head that dissipated very quickly. Clear amber in color

S - meh. Kind of smells like pumpkin-scented Coors with a slight spice.

T - Nothing spectacular. Not as spicy or tastes of pumpkin as much as I'd like. The taste is okay, and reminds me of red ale.

M - Not too thick or too thin. Right amount of carbonation.

Overall - I'd rate this as a decent fall beer. I'd prefer a bit more spiciness and pumpkin flavor though

The Bros review says it all. This is a pumpkin for people who only drink beer at parties. Very easy drinking but not a lot of character. That being said, I would choose this over the usual lagers you see at social gatherings. Strangely, I wish this was marketed as aggressively as the "Rocky Mountain Cold" beer is, maybe more of my neighbors would buy it for their parties.
