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

At Total Wine’s Autumn tasting class; one of the better ones of the night, in my opinion. Mild, pleasant pumpkin aroma, Flavor is pumpkin, spices, clove, cinnamon? Rich, tasty. A little nutmeg. Pumpkin flavor is subtle, not overwhelming.

Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of spice with some sweet grains and a touch of pumpkin. Flavor starts with grain and bread with a bit of pumpkin and a growing spice note.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 22, 2014
On tap @ Tustin Brewing. Dark amber pour with khaki foam. Nose is the typical nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, all spice, etc. Toasted bread and caramel. Sort of grassy, though. Maybe some thyme? Flavor has a weird spice and herbal bitterness. Chalky. Sweet caramel malts and toasted cereal grains. Lots of ginger and nutmeg.

Solid pumpkin, but I am partial to this style. Nothing detracts here. Nothing overly exceptional, either, but that’s OK. Good spice notes. Recommended.

Nice caramel pumpkin aroma. Aperance is ugly looks like flat coke. Taste is pretty good. Spice and caramel very seasonal. Palate is sticky and flat. Not bad for winter. Great aroma

Dark amber color with thick head. Moderate spicy aroma, stronger spicy flavor; caramel flavor too, mostly dry, lightly fruity.
Not appreciated.

AirForceHops (3508) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 21, 2014
12 oz. bottle purchased at Julio’s Liquors. Very dark amber with full lasting white head. Aroma is the standard nuance of nutmeg, caramel, nutmeg and earthy malts. Maybe a tone of English malts.

I would call this more a fall brew rather then a pumpkin brew, not much in the flavor of real pumpkin. All along the spice and dirty/ earthy malt tones. Most of the flavor is nutmeg and cinnamon. Nothing makes me want to purchase this again. I don’t see anything that makes it sand above any other in the style.
