Notes: Like pumpkin pie in a bottle...we add 136 pounds of real pumpkin to the three-barley mash and then season the finished beer with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

16 oz can.
Appearance. Clear amber with a good near white head.
Aroma. Pie slices with an unwanted hint of vinegar.
Flavor. A bit over spiced but better than the aroma suggests. Cooked pumpkin and vanilla join with the spices. Evokes resemblance to an overspending pumpkin pie, which may be the target.

About medium carbonation with a close to medium body.
Aroma is. Canned pumpkin, brown sugar, spice, malt.
Taste is mildly sweet,spice,canned pumpkin, malt and cream with vanilla. Does tastes a bit like pumpkin pie in a can
Overall its a very decent pumpkin beer that is above average and would look for again.

The pour is orange. The taste is some pumpkin & mild spices. It's a decent pumpkin ale but I 've had better. Cheers! B-

Nearly clear copper with a light tan head, the pumpkin and cinnamon are front and center on the nose.

The taste is accentuated by the addition of the clove to the cinnamon and the pumpkin. The description says this is pumpkin pie in a bottle, and that’s accurate. A really nice fall beer.

i really like pumpkin things. those stereotypes about 22 yr old white girls and starbucks is my life for about two months a year. so i was pretty excited when i dropped this into my glass. deep burnt orange body with a nice head that has left quite a bit of lacing all patched together and a nice ring still hangs out. pumpkin pie on the nose and tastebuds, pure and simple. great balance of pumpkin to spices and nothing is overpowering, just really tasty. unfortunately it's quite thin, a bit of body would be fantastic but still delicious.

Like how this looks and smells-brown/orange with a lot of particulates, strong pumpkin scents. Pretty good flavor, plenty of pumpkin with a mild spice presence. Only complaint is it's a little thin.

Smooth delicious pumpkin beer. I really enjoy this on crisp autumn evenings. The smell reminds me of pumpkin pie on thanksgiving. It pours a reddish coppery tone with thin, quickly dissipating head.

Pours a beautiful color from the bottle. Wonderful smell. The scent reminds me of Fall right away. The taste is almost sweet at first, very original compared to the other pumpkin styles. A little sweet for me after 2-3. Still very good.

Poured into a snifter.

3.5 A: Well hazed orange brown color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head with average retentions and a short ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: The nose is mainly pumpkin and spice. The base appears to be fairly bland and is just a vehicle for pumpkin goodness. That said there's a touch of caramel amidst neutral malt. The pumpkin, however, is done well and offers strength. Spices include cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg.

3.5 T: Taste is simply more of the nose. Pleasantly pumpkin with spices mentioned above. Not a whole lot else going on. The base is bready but neutral overall with just a hint of caramel.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A combination of spritzy and creamy. Good here.

3.25 D: Not super impressive, but at least the pumpkin is done the right way. I wish the base beer would be a bit more interesting and would contribute more, but in any case, I'm not unhappy putting this one back.

Wholesale case for $10. Not the best pumpkin beer but better than anything at that price.

Mostly clear orange/tan body, off-white head that fades entirely. Nose hits first with baking spices, in a restrained amount, followed closely by a sweet malt, caramel and biscuit-like, reminiscent of a marzenbier. Flavor subdues the spice in favor of the sweet malt, and a kind of pumpkin-essence element. Spices are mild, cinnamon and nutmeg, a bit of unwanted clove/bubblegum. Body is highly drinkable; appropriate carbonation, medium weight, maybe a bit slick.
I know pumpkin beers are allowed to be sweet, but that odd malt sweetness is not for me. I still appreciated the likeness to traditional autumn beers (Octoberfests), and also the restrained spices (too little is better than too much), so this ended up being a decent cooling-weather beer.

Lots of cinnamon and clove on the nose of this one. Pumpkin is present but balanced. Smooth easy drinker. One of the better pumpkin ales out there - spices are nicely crafted bad pumpkin is balanced.
