Tap - mellow mushroom - Charlottesville - end of the keg, pours a cloudy amber with 2 fingers of head. Aroma is faintly of dough, pumpkin pie, spices, clover and cinnamon. Taste is a touch sweet with the spices on the finish, finishes slightly dry. Surprisingly good!

Really nice pumpkin beer here. The flavor is very nicely balanced with a good sweetness to compliment the spice profile which isnt overdone. Really one of the best of the style.

12 oz bottle, great base beer for the style, it’s like a brown ale or amber ale. Great spicy pumpkin flavors.

Courtesy of rayl101. Hazy amber, mahogany, no head. Aroma has nice combo of pumpkin, spice, back-end sweetness. Flavor much the same, spice tends to take over, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Mouthfeel is a little slick, could use more carbonation.

Draft at Green Leafe. Dark, rusty orange with just a whisper of a whipped cream head. This drinks with a mellow pumpkin tinge, appearing mostly in the finish. Quite drinkable, and a nice easy-going introduction to the concept of gourds in beer to someone who hasn’t tried it before. (#4366, 11/27/2011)

Bottle. Pours an amber orange color with an off white foam head. Aroma of caramel and pumpkin spices. Sweet caramel taste with notes of cider and brown sugar. Nice nutmeg and cinnamon spice flavors mixed in. Excellent.

On tap. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel malts, some spices and light floral hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A good pumpkin ale.
