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!

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Draft at Green Leafe. Dark, rusty orange with just a whisper of a whipped cream head. This drinks with a mellow pumpkin tinge, appearing mostly in the finish. Quite drinkable, and a nice easy-going introduction to the concept of gourds in beer to someone who hasnít tried it before. (#4366, 11/27/2011)

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.

AdamJackson (2599) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2012
acquired this in a trade. Shared with friends in a Hill Farmstead glass.

A - 1/4 Finger head. The beer is a dark leather with pumpkin appearance sort of an off orange appearance.

S - Pumpkin pie, spices, whip cream and milk.

T - Pumpkin spices, canned pumpkin puree and milk. Very weak taste compared to the amazing smell.

M - 80% carbonation, light bodied

O - Itís a good beer. Maybe better fresh but overall, tasty and worth the trade.

12 ounce bottle pours an amber color, aromas of cinnamon, light pumpkin, some ginger, spices, and light crust. Flavors are the same, light nutmeg in the aftertaste, nice offerring of a pumpkin beer.

nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 1, 2012
12oz bottle pours a clear, burnt orange with some thin, off white head. Smells like carrot cake, cream cheese icing, parsnips, cloves, candied ginger, pumpkin pie candle. Flavor is very sweet, like cake icing, carrots, cloves, candied ginger, parsnip, candied yams, marshmellow. Slightly sticky, sweet, spicy finish. Pumpkin pie in a glass. One of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had.

Iphonephan (3252) - McLean, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2012
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.

hopbag (89) - - SEP 8, 2014
Really nice pumpkin pie flavor. Ginger, clove, nutmeg. Canned pumpkin in the finish at the back of the palate. Sweet but not overly so. Red amber color with almost no head. Really nice beer for the category. Executes the concept well at the cost of head retention. Could drink two of these in a sitting before it becomes cloying, which is pretty good for a gimmick beer.

Pours a clear dark amber with fair light tan head. Nose is caramel and light cinnamen. Flavor is better than most. Cinnamen, pumpkin, and gingerbread. Lots of gingerbread. Great spiced brew.
