COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a brilliant, deep copper hue and creamy beige-colored head, our Fall Horniní Pumpkin Ale has inviting aromas of caramelized malt and baking bread with highlights of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and seasonal spices. The pleasantly creamy mouthfeel and silky body embrace the sweet caramel flavors and tang of spices (with just a hint of hops) that ends in a smooth, round finish. Malts: Pale Two-Row, Maris Otter, Munich, Crystal 120L, Dark Chocolate, Pumpkin Puree Hops: Bravo

Draft at Universal Joint. Pours murky brown with a thick, creamy beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes like dry, bitter spice, pumpkin, roasted malt, and a hint of sweet pumpkin pie. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet pumpkin pie, cinnamon, some vegetable, and some alcohol.

Tap. Pours hazy brown with thick, creamy off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin notes (not overdone), cookie and bready malts, some vanilla, light spice, and faint woodiness. Flavor is dry and malty with big spice presence, well balanced pumpkin and vanilla sweetness, with a good touch of hop bitterness; dry throughout. Medium body and carbonation.

Can at home courtesy of bmoosey, cheers Bruce!
Attractive dark ruby with beige head collapsing to lacing. Cinnamon buns and nutmeg on nose. Spicey and bready up front, a lil thin with a touch of acridity in finish that builds up. Reminds me of cinnamon grahams. Not quite my type but well done.

One of the best Pumpkin beers I have ever had. I wish I could enjoy more than just one sip.

adamnowek (139) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2014
A deep copper colour. Tasty, tasty, tasty. This beer isnít super pumpkin-y, but I think itís a big strength. Itís more of a pumpkin pie taste with nutmeg, cinnamon, and a hint of pumpkin.

12oz can picked up at The Grapevine
Pours clear dark brown with a medium sized beige head, good lacing. Aroma of caramel, nutmeg and spices. Taste of toasted malts, caramel, cinnamon, mild chocolate with bitterness in the finish
A decent Pumpkin beer, not overpowering.

ScipioA (314) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours out like a super bubbly cola, dark brown body and large but quick fading tan head. Flat aroma of generic beer with a little bit of spice. Flavor is more interesting. I donít really get any pumpkin, but lots of sweet and roasted malt with cinnamon. Light body with smooth carbonation is a pleasure to swish around. Itís fine.

Countbeer (4544) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle: Served in a taster: Thanks Oirschot crew: Clear red with a small head. Aromas of cinnamon, cinnamon candy stick, some other spices, some malts, brown sugars and pumkin tint. Flavours of cinnamon, malts, ginger, hay and oat with some bread, yeast, more spices... Meh.. Aftertaste is cinnamon, ginger malts and bitters. Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light creamy texture. Not my thing at all, those freakin pumpkin beers...

"spekulatius" beer. thatís almost ínuff said. smells like gingerbread in a dark old cellar. fine carbon and malty sweetness on first taste. then all the spices slowly make their entrance. you have to really look for the pumpkin, but thatís a good thing!

Pours a dark clear ruby amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is of mild pumpkin, nutmeg, some cinnamon spices, notes of caramel malt become more prevalent as it warms up. Taste similar to aroma with some mild bitterness. A medium body with moderate carbonation on the palate. Caramel malt, pumpkin, nutmeg and mild cinnamon spices and mild bitterness on the end. Not as cloying and overly sweet as some other pumpkin brews, but nothing really stellar either. Overall an ok drinking brew for a pumpkin brew.
