look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Orange amber pour with a white head that disappeared quickly to zilch. No lace.

Smells of nutmeg, caramel malt and spices.

Taste is initially interesting with nice nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin favors but it fades quickly into a sweet malty base and a thin, watery mouthfeel.

There are better pumpkin brews.

This poured out as a Clear looking amber color. The head was a little on the soapy looking side. The lacing was minimal and the retention wasn't overly impressive. The smell of the beer has some lager yeast aromas as well as the traditional pumpkin spice notes. The taste of the beer has an earthy spiced flavor through that mixed with the sweetness of the malts. The mouthfeel is on the thinner side with I feel it should be heavier. Overall this isn't a bad brew, just not one of my favorites.

Reviewed from tasting notes.

A. Orange-tinted amber with a 30 second head of foam that resolves to a thready collar, minimal lacing left behind.

S. Aroma seems to be more about the pie spicing than the pumpkin aroma itself, faint levels of caramel malt aroma exist underneath all the spices.

T. Again, mostly about the pie spice. Cinnamon and nutmeg, mostly, with just a brief flash of pumpkin sweetness that dries out quite nicely.

M. Lighter side of medium body, heavier side of medium carbonation. Crisp feel overall.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #58 (November 2011):

LOOK: Clear pale amber

SMELL: Pie spice, cinnamon, pumpkin meat, cookie dough, clean

TASTE: Moderate body, crisp, pale malt, bready, pie spice, vague tartness, pumpkin, dried hay, flour, alcohol, more spice

A very well-spiced Pumpkin Lager. Oh yeah … it's a lager. Easy to drink for what it is. When it comes to spiced beer, it's pretty subjective on whether you want more than one—but we could see having more than one. There is depth, but lightness as well, two worlds that should have met a long time ago perhaps.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a slightly orange, dark yellow straw colored. Very slight haze as well. Started with a 2 finger off white head that faded to none after a few minutes. Aroma was a sweet pumpkin with small hints of spice, mostly like a pie puree. Taste was slightly sweet, but fairly bland, akin to a bland bread. Felt a bit over tingly in the mouth, but coated well. Overall a middle of the road pumpkin beer. Nothing outstanding in any direction.
