09/28/2013. Sampled at a local tasting. Amber color with a white head. Aromas of malt, spice, pumpkin. Nutmeg and cinnamon flavors. Good if you’re into this style of beer, but not my kind.

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.

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.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2009
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!

hershiser2 (2049) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours a clear brown-amber with an inch of head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, caramel, cinnamon, ginger, and crust. Flavor of gingerbread, pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon, and pie crust. A bit on the sweet side - a tad too sweet for me.

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.
