LOOK: Pours a mahagony brown with some amber hues and a decent off white head with solid retention.
AROMA: Smells like pumpkin pie with cinnamon.
TASTE: If you like pumpkin pie you will love this beer. Solid malt backbone and hints of caramel.

FEEL: A bit sweet, but very true to its style for an Octoberfest event.

The best pumpkin beer I’ve ever had. Even compared to blue moon pumpkin. I hope this sticks around for every fall season.

12oz bottle poured into a goblet

A- pours an amber color with a one-finger foamy white head that has great retention

S- initial aroma smells like a cinnamon-forward mulled cider, with a stewed apple aroma. Undertone of wet dog

T- heavy cinnamon up front dominates, mid-palate gives an herbal cinnamon tea note. The finish gives slightly sweet malty notes of caramel with more cinnamon on the linger

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into the finish

O- an enjoyable pumpkin beer, but fairly one dimensional with the heavy cinnamon

Doesn't taste entirely like pumpkin. Smells a little rotten but does taste and smell roughly like pumpkin. Overall I would buy again.

Brownish orange and hazy with a thin off-white dissipating head. Doesn’t look too appealing really. Cinnamon and sweet pumpkin nose is really nice on this beer. Wow that’s a sweet pumpkin flavor, Really pumpkin pie like. Ok carbonation but could use more. A bit too sweet to have a lot but hey pretty good.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a glowing burnt golden with some haze to it; creamy off-white head that falls leaving nice retention and lacing. The aromas have your typical pumpkin spices along with some caramel. Some apple notes. Sweet malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose. Cinnamon and allspice come through. Some ginger and nutmeg. Some apple cider. More caramel. Some sweet potatoes. Subtle hints of graham crackers in the mix. Nice malt backbone. It's on the sweeter side and is borderline cloyingly sweet. Some sticky and syrupy qualities. Alcohol goes unnoticed for the most part, but there's a mild warmth in the finish. Mouthfeel is on the fuller side of medium-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's sharp.

This is a solid pumpkin ale. It's bold and has a bit more going on compared to your average pumpkin ale, but the sweetness hurts this one just a little bit. This one is fitting for the fall weather.

Wow this pumpkin beer has blown me away. Cant believe the price of this 6pk for what I am tasting. Has a very forward cinnamon and cream taste with the typical pumpkin pie spices on the way down. It is sweet for a beer but if pumpkin pie were a liquid then this is it!!

Poured an orange body with great head and lace patches. The aroma is overtly sugary/fake although the pumpkin spice and cinnamon do stand out. Pretty much a dessert beer but I didn't find it cloying, and maybe it was just me but it seemed to have enough pumpkin/cinnamon to take away from vanilla/sugary sweetness to avoid being saccharine as well. Not even pumpkin pie as more like pumpkin sugar cookie but it was worth having (only one).
