COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a brilliant, deep copper hue and creamy beige-colored head, our Fall Hornin’ 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

marcus (6441) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 31, 2014
12oz can from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours orange brown with a huge beige head that gushes from the can and a pumpkin and spice aroma. There is a strange dark malt flavor with too much nutmeg and a pumpkin finish. Not very tasty.

BLADT (603) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Can pour. Rich copper color with soapy head. Nose is straight autumnal spice cabinet. Not nauseating (comes across natural), but not enticing. Nothing about this nose make me want to take a sip. This is a perfume better suited to a pie. Taste is more palatable. More vegetal than all-spice. Like almost all beers in this sub genre, I do not understand the appeal.

jsmerig (1238) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours a deep clear ruby red with a light tan head. Aroma of cola, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin spice. Taste is sweet with a dark spicy note. Bitter in the finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bubblehouse (361) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours nearly black with a big head out of the can. Nice aroma but a little lackimg in taste. Still pretty darn good.

chiiidog (30) - Lubbock, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours a dark golden brown. Aroma is full of spice, not much pumpkin. The taste introduces the pumpkin and follows with more spice. This isn’t anything remarkable but it’s very drinkable and has a nice "autumn" feel to it. I liked it.

swanmann (599) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Pours deep amber brown with some red tones and creamy tan, quickly dissipating head. It smells like pumpkin, molasses, some spice. Nice roasty notes caramel and pumpkin sweetness, a light vegetal note and a medium bittersweet finish. Medium bodied with some fairly lively carbonation. I like it. I don’t think the spice is overpowering and the darker malt bill lends well to pumpkin flavor.

arondee (561) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a dark black/brown color with a huge off-white head. The aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, spices, and sweet malts. The taste is light and full of spices and pumpkin. Pretty good but a little to light for my taste.

crossovert (7336) - Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Nto a huge fan of the style but it seems well-made and par for the style, lots of spice and pumpkin still.
