Glass Used: Pint (tumbler)

Appearance: Orange-brown with a slight haze to it. The acorn thick head was ivory and lingered around for a bit before melting away.

Smell: Rich smell of roasted, lightly smoked pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and alcohol. The spice is definitely familiar as is the sweetness but the kiss of smoke tweaks it up a notch.

Taste: Pumpkin, spice and a faint smokiness. Not over-powering nor too sweet, with a wee bit of acidity (not in a bad way). The alcohol is there with a slight bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Buttery, moderate carbonation. Lingering bitterness more so than in other pumpkin ales.

Overall: This is a solid pumpkin ale from Texas. It's made by a nano-brewery in San Antonio that specializes in seasonal limited releases. I will definitely grab more of this when I get a chance, perhaps sending one to Iowa for a buddy to try.

From a bottle, pours a murky dark orange, whispy light brown head.

Nose is toasty, pumpkin, sunflower seeds, brown sugar a little bit of smoke. Flavor is nutty and pumpkin, a little bit of spice, a bit acidic. The finish is a sweet smoke (like sweet & tangy bbq aftertaste). This is ok, but nothing to write home about.

Truncated notes below:

Pours a white creamy head of nice full even consistency. Thick enough, with a coating appearance. Sustains well, lasting about 5-6 minutes without leaving any lacing on the sides of the glass.

Body is a murky hazy copper with brown hues. Floating yeast is visible.

Overall, it looks subpar for a pumpkin ale.

Sm: Faint pumpkin gourd, pumpkin pie spices (nutmeg, allspice, clove), and copper malts.

T: Pumpkin gourd, pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, copper malts, and minimal hopping. The cinnamon and malts coupled together lend it too much sweetness, and there isn't enough pumpkin - or any authentic pumpkin. I suspect something like puree was used instead of actual pumpkin gourd.

Mf: Smooth, wet, medium-bodied. Too thick for the style and flavour. A biteen syrupy. Overcarbonated. Unrefreshing.

O: Lacks a harmony of texture to taste. I don't get any smokiness in terms of the pumpkin, or any authenticity. It's overcaramelized and too sweet, lending it an imbalanced unpleasant taste. Not a beer I look forward to finishing the bottle of. A swing and a miss from 5 Stones.

A pumpkin beer that doesn't rely on heavy amounts of clove or cinnamon to add flavor. Dark amber color with wispy head and lace. The aroma has faint amounts of caramel and pumpkin. Medium body, possibly leaning toward the heavy side. The flavor accentuate the pumpkin. While there is a bit of caramel, the pumpkin is the biggest contributor. A subtle amount of smoke to go along. Rich, creamy mouthfeel with carbonation on the low side. A must try for someone who wants a pumpkin (and not a pumpkin pie) beer.
