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.

Bottle, thanks to ksurkin. Pours copper, with an off white head. Aroma is like pumpkin pie...pumpkin and spices. Also has some caramel. Flavor is like a liquid pumpkin pie. Rich and tasty, but not too heavy as to be overwhelming. The best pumpkin brew Iíve tasted. Beautiful stuff. Need more....

12 oz. bottle - dark orange, basically flat; pumpkin pie, squash, spice and nutmeg; soft, full pumpkin pie flavors; pie crust, some spice, lemon; texture is on the thin side with crackers; lovely flavor profile with fruit, sweetness, pumpkin spice; has all the vegi qualities, but is plenty sweet and spicy; very nice

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Aroma of allspice and mint mostly for me with sweet malt behind. Flavor vaguely vegetal along with the very prominent spices, not much cinnamon, so a bit different than most pumpkins. Pretty rich, quite sweet even over all the spices. Could be a great mood beer I suppose, but I guess not my mood.

12 oz bottle acquired in trade with RABinVA. Pours a dark clear orange with the tiniest of off white heads. No head at all really. Nice pumpkin scent with cinnamon and brown sugar. Taste is sweet with with a light spice. Contrary to their commercial description, this is not "pumpkin pie in a bottle" which is a good thing because it isnít full of artificial pumpkin flavor and loaded with spice. Just a more natural pumpkin flavor with a nice sweetness. Full bodied and smooth. Very good. Wish this were available around here.
