On draft at whole foods in falls church. Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Bubble gum aroma. Flavor is a nice balance - neither pumpkin or spice are overwhelming. A bit sweet but very drinkable.

ReggieDunlap (3009) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Pours a fairly clear amber color with a medium light tan head...lively. aroma has soft spices, some caramel...slightly doughy. Flavor has nice earthiness, significant spice, caramely malt , and crisp, spicy hops to balance it out. Mouthfeel is lively and the finish is earthy and spiced. Very autumnal!

bytemesis (2931) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle from the latest local swap - thanks! Pours a really nead looking ruby-hazel-orange, crystal clear with a small beige head that dissipates to a ring that laces well. Aroma is pumpkin spices, clove, allspice, cinnamon, caramel. Flavor is much the same, very spice forward, quite sweet on a caramel malt backbone. Not really any bitterness although there is a zestiness to the finish. Too sweet for me, but not bad for what it is.

12 oz. bottle via trade with ksurkin - Pours a slightly hazy light brown color with a small off white head. Very little lacing. Aroma is sweet spices. Flavor is the same. Medium body. Not bad for a Pumpkin beer. Thanks Ken.

Bottle courtesy of Drake. Pumpkin malt, nutmeg, and brown sugar aroma. Orange amber with a small ivory head. Slightly sweet roasted pumpkin malt, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg flavor. Medium body. Against the Grainís Flesh Gourdin still remains my absolute favorite pumpkin beer.

Long time want, courtesy of trade with Ernesto987. Iím still looking for any pumpkin beer to compete with Pumking. This isnít it. The nose is strong with pumpkin, spices, cinnamon in particular. The appearance is a translucent if slightly cloudy amber, white head. The flavor is just like the aroma. Medium in body, creamy mouthfeel. The finish is spicy, pine. Solid performer, but it just doesnít ascend above most other pumpkin beers. Thanks Ernesto.

alobar (2715) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Pours a clear copper color with no head. Aroma of pumpkin, allspice, and nutmeg. Lots of pumpkin flavor with hint of graham with nutmeg and allspice. This is a really good pumpkin ale!

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Growler shared by Mike at Dmacís house. Pours out a nice orange/copper color with a small fading head. Aroma is of pumpkin spice, sweet pumpkin pie and some sugary sweetness. Taste is pumpkin spice, ah hell enough with that, its a solid pumpkin, good pie filling-like taste, some spice. Solid.

Bottle gifted by Chaney. Thanks Brandon. The beer appears orange to brown hued. A fine color for an autumn beer. The aroma brings pumpkin right up front, followed by cinnamon, nutmeg, pie, vanilla, malt. The flavor is great, with flavors of pumpkin pie, vanilla, and Fall spices. A bit sweet, but not too. Certainly one of the better pumpkin ales I have had. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-06-2012
