Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, crystal clear, golden coloring, with an uneven, bubbly, foamy, off-white head. Steady flow of carbonation throughout the body. Aromas of pumpkin spice forward, with highlights of vanilla and a breaded backbone. The pumpkin spice is prominent, and the other aromas come off a bit muted. Flavors are tangy cream and pumpkin spice forward, with notes of caramel and an almost sugary sweetness. Comes off like a piece of candy, or really sugary pumpkin bread. Light, effervesced, crisp body, with a subtle pumpkin sweet aftertaste. The finish is light, crisp, and effervesced. Meh.

Nothing special about the color, looks like your typical pilsner or whatever. Aroma hits hard at first whiff of pumpkin, kind of artificial like extract. Taste is a good amount of pumpkin up front(once again sort of artificial), and then...............the beer dies, flavor leaves, aroma gone and just goes down hill....Mouthfeel is kind of like dirty dishwater...

Kennebunkport Pumpkin Ale has an initially very thick, off white head, but that fades, quickly, and leaves no lacing behind. The appearance is clear, bubbly, and orange-gold. Aroma is of pumpkin pie, pie crust, pumpkin pulp, and pumpkin spice candles. Taste is of those same elements, with some acidity and low bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and fairly watery. KBC Pumpkin Ale finishes crisp and easy drinking.

Meh. Mediocre light beer with no real flavor of its own, with lots of pumpkin spice flavoring added. Kind of slick mouthfeel with some moderate carbonation. Won't bother with this one again.

Very light beer. Pleasant pumpkin pie flavor. This is a beer to enjoy one at a time for something different. Much lighter than most pumpkin beers.

Clear deep gold with one finger of short lived head. Spots of lace.
Smell is cinnamon spice and some malt.
Taste is similar to the nose with a slight hop bitterness at the end. Mostly sweet spicey pumpkin pie flavors.
Mouthfeel is fairly light with good carbonation. Finish is light sweetness.
Overall a decent pumpkin beer but like most of these kind of beers one is enough.

Not my cup of tea. It was ok,but it tasted too artificial for me. There wasn't much body that shold be expected with this stle and really just tasted like a Bud Light with nutmeg sprinkled on top.
