COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ah fall – the time for temperatures’ to drop, leaves to start to turn, the start of family get-togethers – AND – Pumpkin Pie. Or, in this case Pumpkin Falls. This fall seasonal tastes just like your mothers pumpkin pie, only in a glass and without whipped cream. Spicy cinnamon and nutmeg with the slightest hint of allspice will make you hooked and you’ll find yourself reaching for a glass rather than a fork.

Bottle, from the Nugget Market, Woodland. Pours a deep copper color with a moderate beige head. Heavy nose of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Ties together very well. Taste is moderate in the overall spiciness, smooth in fact. Good pumpkin flavor. Gingerbread comes to mind, an sweet element that I can’t put my finger on, and a really creamy feeling that leads to the sensation of whipped cream. Really solid effort. One of the best pumpkin beers I can recall to date.

marcus (6337) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle from Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours orange brown with a nice beige head and a pumpkin and spice aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with lots of pumpkin and allspice.

22 ounce bottle. The aroma on this is very similar to just about every other pumpkin beer I have ever had. Cinnamon spice, some nutmeg, light vanilla. Nothing else. Perhaps some brown sugar and some metallic hints. Transparent amber body with a quickly dissipating, medium off-white head. Starts with some metallic flavors, before this becomes a little spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg in the middle. Moderate caramel malt sweetness is also present. Finishes fizzy and lightly bitter. Even for a pumpkin beer, this is kind of watery and rather flavorless.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a dark amber colored body. The aroma is all pumpkin and a little spice. Pumpkin pie. The taste is a little watery, mild pumpkin, mild lemon bitter. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. An okay beer. It didn’t have a lot of flavor; pumpkin or otherwise.

bhensonb (10731) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bomber from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours dark copper with a creamy tan head. Aroma has many of the usual suspects, so let’s go for all: Cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice and nutmeg. Really sure about "gingerbread". Med body. Flavor is spicy, ale thins, and spice does too, but it’s really strong, and I’m getting clove/ginger/cinnamon burn. Maybe there should be a bit more malt to hold down the clove, but this has got to be one of the best spice pumpkins out there. Someone is going to be tempted to use this to make a pumpkin float!
