12oz bottle: This one pours a crystal clear amber color. There was a bit of an off-white head that didn’t linger too long or leave much lacing. Nose is OK: just a bit of pumpkin pie spices, malts in the background. Taste is a little thin. Some malts, some spices, but not too much of either. Pretty nondescript. OK, but not one of their better offerings. There are much better pumpkin beers out there.

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, orange-brown in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, and clove

Taste: pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, toasted malt, slight bittering earth, and clove

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness in the background, high carbonation, light bodied

Overall: This is what I think of when I think of average pumpkin beer. It meets all of the basic requirements of a pumpkin beer. I could throw back several and it is pleasant to drink. That said, it really does not stand out in any way. I may pick this one up again or could just choose a more local favorite.

Struggling to pick up pumpkin... seems overpowered by hops.

Average to good, but not great any more.

12 oz. bottle.

Clear dark copper body. Small, gauzy, light beige head. Not much retention. Modest malt aroma with notes of caramel and maybe some faint pie filling. Not much spice action here, or pumpkin for that matter.

Astringent graininess up front. Notes of ginger and mineral water bitterness come in. Toasted grains and butterscotch fill in. Tangy, tannic edge to it all. Light spices (nutmeg, clove) in the finish. More pumpkin and pie like in the end, but it sure doesn't start out that way. Moderate body with a slightly overcarbonated feel.
