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.

Appearance: Golden brown with ok carbonation. A thin layer of foam on the rim of the glass.

Smell: Nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon. Vinegar-like sourness as well.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Sour orange and lemon with some spices. Nice flavors, but a bit too sour in the finish. Active carbonation that fizzles a bit.

Overall Drinkability: Another pumpkin ale that is just average.

A- Gorgeous. Very deep amber color with a little bit of bubbling and a short head that was gone in just a couple minutes.
S- Just like Pumpkin Pie- sweet, spicy, and very full/defined.
T-As everyone as said, the taste is very similar to the smell. The addition being the sweetness in the finish, with little alcohol taste.
M- Mouthfeel is thin at first with a bodied finish, almost similar texture to a pepsi believe it or not.
O- This is a very good beer. Not something I would be able to drink every week or with a meal come to think about it. It is a tasty beer that is meant to be drank alone and enjoyed in the fall of the year.

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with wispy lacing on the surface and a thin collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices in the nose.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and also has a little bit of sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This isn’t a bad pumpkin beer because it has a good amount of aromas and flavors (that don’t taste artificial) and is easy to drink.

Served on tap at Teak on the Hudson in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a crystal clear dark orange to dark amber in color with very minimal amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall off-white head that quickly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of pumpkin and yam with some lighter amounts of pumpkin pie spices with nutmeg, clove, and allspice all present. The dominant flavor is the pumpkin while the spices are more subtle and in the background.

T: Very similar to the smell, that taste of this beer is dominated by pumpkin and some lighter spices (nutmeg, allspice, and clove) but seems to be lacking in malts. There is a light amount of underlying sweetness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Not the worst pumpkin beer that I have had but nothing special either. Easy to drink and I enjoy the fact that the spices are not too dominant and it is not overly sweet.
