Draft: Pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, and orange aroma in good proportions. Amber orange color, clear, headless. It tastes sweet for the style, but only a bit cloying. Orange, clove, and cherries are present. Subdued mushroom and pumpkin finish. When warmed to near room temperature, the sweetness comes into better balance, while the pumpkin flavor really comes to life, escorted by vanilla. Itís a much better beer warm. One of the best pumpkin ales Iíve had. Of course, that isnít saying a whole lot.

My parents stopped at Williamsburg Brewpub in Virginia and picked up a bottle of the Pumpkin Ale. From 12-oz bottle pours a semi-clear dark orange amber colored brew with a thin off-white head slowly dissipates to a thin off-white ring. Aroma of caramel and spiced pumpkin along with a hint of nutmeg and clove. Taste is medium bodied, a touch spicy with flavors of caramel malt, clove and some nutmeg. Finish has a slight alcohol bite with some clove and nutmeg spice aftertaste. A touch more spice and alcohol compared to most other pumpkin ales.

Bottle thanks to dkachur. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of sweet pumpkin, pumpkin pie, crust, and spices. Flavor is pure pumpkin pie -- the pumpkin, crust, and even whipped cream on top. Pumpkin spices in the finish. On the sweet side and a little syrupy. It becomes a little cloying by the end of the glass but itís certainly a decent pumpkin ale. 7/4/7/3/14 [3.5/5]

Lightly sweet, malt, pumpkin, cinnamon, and light caramel finish.

Cloudy deep orange pour with brown tint ... very light off white head very sweet and pumpkin spice with light pie crust in the aroma ... taste is very sweet and spicy lots of sugar and pumpkin spice in this one mostly cinnamon and some clove that lingers into the finish ... not a bad pumpkin brew if you like the sweeter side

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear brown with a touch of orange with a small white head. Aroma was cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Flavor was a nice, sweet pumpkin pie beer with graham crackers and a hint of clove. Alcohol is higher than I expected.
