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.

if i've learned one thing about beers, it's that if the location isn't prominently displayed, it's usually not worth it. it is very light for my taste, and it's as if the pumpkin spice is added in during the bottling phase, much like the lemon flavor of a summer shandy. the six pack was bought for me, so i'm not complaining too much.

It taste like rubber. The first sip had a crazy cinnamon spice sort of thing but after that I thought I was drinking rubber flavored beer. This is the first beer I ever dumped down the drain.

This is a crime against beer. To use an analogy, this reminds me of those coffees that are infused with some artificial flavor and aroma to enhance the taste. The pumpkin taste feels like a perfume that was added. If you want a pumpkin ale, do it right. There is no substitute for Dogfish Head's version.

Golden colored with a fingernail of off white head covering half of the top. Aroma is strongly of pumpkin pie spice,cinnamon, and nutmeg. The flavor is overly spiced pumpkin pie spice,cinnamon and nutmeg and is quite artificial. The mouth is heavily over carbonated and has excessive spices.

very heavy on the clove and cinnamon. would have preferred more 'beer' characteristics and less pumpkin pie/soda pop taste. how you experience this brew will depend what you're after. I was expecting a beer and was disappointed.
