Pours murky brown with a large tan head. Smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, hints of nutmeg and allspice. Taste is pumpkin, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, hints of chocolate. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Anderson Valley Fall Hornin’ Pumpkin Ale has a spicy finish.

Are you kidding me. I wish they all could be California pumpin beeeeers...This one rocked. The first taste was OK but after that each drink was a pumpkin orgasim in my mouth. Tastes good smells good feels good...Its just freaking good. I will have to get a piece of pumpkin bubble yum after this. This is a good drink at work, at home, at church. Any place you want a drink. PUmpkin this bad boy out. I will wait in the field with Linus for the Great PUmpkin if he is handing out this beer. Remember drink safely and if drinking at work make sure you have Big Red just in case your boss comes calling.

Tap @ TacoMac, Cumming. Deep copper color. Khaki foam, huge lace. Spells of pumpkin & pumpkin spice. Huge cinnamon. Creamy texture. Rich caramelized sugars notes, healthy squash, and seasonal spices complete this brew. Cinnamon, clove, & nutmeg linger on. Very delish. I’m so glad autumn is here! (3829).

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

Beer #2. 12 oz can. Aroma is as typical as the Uinta, with spices prominent. Has a nice roastiness. Pours a dark mahogany with a medium beige head with good retention and leaves some lacework. Sweet with more savoriness and roastiness than the Uinta. Hops are noticeable in the finish. A little thin. A little more character than beer #1.

Bottle via Beer World Kingston, NY. Deep ruby in the mug. Glowing thin oily tan head. Solid dense lacing/foam clings to sides of mug. Strong nose of pumpkin spice. This is the put the basement back together beer today. One of many from the looks of it. Body follows nose thru to mirror finish.

All right! Good pumpkin beer. Dark ruby red hue.The pumpkin is lighter than the spices and is tasted throughout the beer. Spices are dominated by cinnamon which also dries out the beer. Other pie spies finish out the flavor. Tastes and smells great. Sometimes it reminds me of root beer. If your craving a pumpkin beer this will satisfy you.

Crystal clear dark amber with a slight deep red tinge topped with a foamy light tan head. Strong cinnamon aroma along with some earthy vegetal components. The strength of the cinnamon in the aroma had me worried, but it’s delicious and not overdone at all in the taste. There’s some other nice fall spice flavor in there (definitely nutmeg) and a really good pumpkin/gourd flavor that gives this beer real depth. The spices really dominate but I’m sure there’s some hops mixed in there somewhere. There’s a nice bittersweet dark chocolate flavor in there too which is separate from the pumpkin pie flavor but totally compliments it. Lasting cinnamon spice and bite, but again not too much. Excellent pumpkin beer and it appears to be the first release of this from Anderson Valley (why would I expect anything less?).
