Bottle courtesy of dkachur (I think) in the Mystery Swap. Pours a clear orange hued brown with a thin beige head. Huge caramel and gingerbread with some roasted pumpkin and squash aromas. Medium bodied, lightly sweet with vanilla, caramel, and spice. Finishes with some nice spices and almost a pie crust flavor. Smooth and tasty.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2010
12oz bottle from ken i believe.... pours a cloudy, mostly opaque, darker caramel brown with a lacy thin soapy white head.... aroma of pumpkin, almost a strong ginger essence, and some accompanying spices, perhaps cardammon.... flavors are sweeter than expected with cinammon, cardammon spice to accentuate the pumpkin essence. medium carbonation with adequate body. a bit too lively at the backend but still one of the better pumpkin brews that i have had actually.

Iím not big on fruit beers and this has a big fruit taste. Lotsa cinnamon, like drinking a pumpkin pie. Bet Iím the first person to say that. Very thick mouthfeel, which I like. Gives a good happy buzz.

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 (6177) - Yorktown, 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.

AdamChandler (4189) - 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.
