Pours a fairly clear amber color with a medium light tan head...lively. aroma has soft spices, some caramel...slightly doughy. Flavor has nice earthiness, significant spice, caramely malt , and crisp, spicy hops to balance it out. Mouthfeel is lively and the finish is earthy and spiced. Very autumnal!

Growler shared by msiano, thanks Mike. Poured a good looking clear rusty orange with a tiny touch of off white head. Aroma is like a spicey pumpkin pie, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutnmeg, grahamn cracker. Medium bodied with very subtle carbonation, hey itís a grolwer, and a lingering dry finish. Flavor of cinnamon, nutmeg, touch of vanilla extract, dry grains and alcohol. Solid stuff.

Long time want, courtesy of trade with Ernesto987. Iím still looking for any pumpkin beer to compete with Pumking. This isnít it. The nose is strong with pumpkin, spices, cinnamon in particular. The appearance is a translucent if slightly cloudy amber, white head. The flavor is just like the aroma. Medium in body, creamy mouthfeel. The finish is spicy, pine. Solid performer, but it just doesnít ascend above most other pumpkin beers. Thanks Ernesto.

16oz glass on tap at Beer Run. Labeled as 8%. Clear orange color. Thin white head. Nice lighter carbonation, good smooth texture, dry finish. Great pumpkin, light spice aroma. Drinks easier than the ABV would suggest. Spice taste, light sweet. Some maple. Friends LOVED this, got several pints of it.

12oz bottle compliments of zizzybalubba. Orange hue hazy clarity with mostly diminishing off-white head. Virtually no lacing. Nutmeg, spice & citrus on the nose. Medium spice on the initial taste with an average moderate tspice finish. Watery on the palate. Would try again!

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.
