Hazy light brown color. Pumpkin flavor abound.

Least spicy of all the pumpkin ales i have had so far. Which makes it bland and to me tasteless.

I should not be slamming a beer. But this one is not something i would recommend to people with my kind of taste buds.

A few of the other folks though liked it may be because they found the beers with spices too strong for them.

More like a blunt lager with a bit of pumpkin. I don't know whether that is good or bad.

Very less carbonation. Easy to drink.

Note - Pumpkin Ales are not for me. And definitely not those that lack spices. So it is a bit negatively biased review.

Bottle kept in fridge. Poured into a tulip.

A- Pours a nice and clear deep orange almost copper color with 2 fingers of white head that didn't linger ver long and does not leave much of any lacing on the glass.

S- Pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spices of nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice etc. Some earthy/ herbal hops are in the mix, but as it warms the pumpkin and spices really come out.

T- Follows nose well. Nice mix of pumpkin and spices that reminds you of the holidays. The herbal, grassy flavors are on the finish, but the pumpkin spice flavors are the ones that linger. Could have more pumpkin flavor, but not bad.

M- Medium bodied. Medium amount of carbonation. Would like this one to feel more creamy.

O- Not too bad. This one is on the lighter side as far as Pumpkin Ales go, but it's still worth trying. Got to support Missouri Brewers!

A: deep orange/copper hues; 2 finger head with aggressive pour, but dissipates quickly; lots of visible activity

S: pleasant aroma of pumpkin spice and cloves that becomes more apparent as the beer warms

T: taste of pumpkin spice and cinnamon becomes very noticeable as the beer warms; like pumpkin pie in a glass

M: full-bodies, thick texture; moderate carbonation; dry, sticky finish

O: overall a great pumpkin ale; one of the best tasting I have had thus far

12 oz bottle, 2012 vintage, into a Hoffman House chalice. Bottle dated August 24.

A - Medium orange red, slightly hazy. Initial large white head falls into a mere trace of foam. Carbonation appears brisk.

S - Very mild pumpkin spice aroma. Not as aggressive as many examples.

T - Mild caramel sweetness with a very light pumkin spice note. Finish is mildly sweet.

M - Medium to light body with medium to high carbonation.

O - On the lighter side of the style, but without major flaws. An easy drinking fall spice beer.

Edit: 13-AUG-13: Bottle dated 30-JUL-13. 2013 vintage is superior to 2012 vintage. Cloudier, slightly heavier body, significantly more spice. Still on the lighter side of the style, but a lot less spritzy. An excellent choice.
