3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Copper with a white head. Medium, fairly smooth body. Aroma has light pumpkin and a decent helping of pie spice, with light toasty malts. Flavor is toasted pumpkin, malts, spices, nutmeg. Well rounded, well crafted pumpkin beer. A bit lighter than ST Pumking, which makes this a bit more drinkable. Quite good.

Bottle at craft ale house. Pours reddish brown with a small white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is full of pumpkin.. Much more than others. There is also plenty of nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste is mostly pumpkin pie and reminds me of a spicier version of pumking. Really solid.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Dan. Thanks. Pours a translucent copper color with a very small white head that immediately dissipates. The aroma is big and bold with pumpkin, cloves, and allspice. The flavor is similar to the nose, lots of spicy pumpkin set in a biscuit malt base. The palate was just a bit thinner than I would prefer and the carbonation was soft. Finished long with lingering cloves. Overall: One of the best pumpkin ales, this is a real treat. Thanks again.

12oz bottle courtesy of dkachur. Pours clear dark amber with a 2 finger thick beige head. The nose is pumpkin, spice and malt. The taste is nutmeg, cinnamon, candied fruit and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is great – thick and creamy. Nice Pumpkin Beer. Not as good as Southern Tier Pumking, but it’s up there and the mouthfeel is better. Thanks for sending this my way Dan!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the best pumpkin ales I’ve tasted so far! This offering pours a light amber color with a small off-white head. The head doesn’t leave much lacing around the glass, though. I got a ton of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg in the nose. The body was extremely smooth and drinkable. The flavors were really delicious, with notes of pumpkin pie, pie crust, toasted bread, nutmug, cinnamon and a good amount of sweet maltiness. This really was like eating a slice of pumpkin pie. I’ve tasted a lot of other pumpkin ales, but this one wasn’t so heavy on the pumpkin or the spices. The balance of the flavors was just right. Williamsburg’s was more balanced and more well-rounded than a lot of others I’ve sampled. If you get the chance, try this pumpkin beer this fall. You won’t be disappointed.

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.
