Cinnamon comes alive as soon as you pop the top! Has a nice pumpkin pie color to it. Thatís a fall spice warmer in the glass. Iím getting actual pumpkin pie on the aftertaste. Nutmeg comes through nice. If youíre a fan of nutmeg, this is for you. Of pumpkin ales, this one is a nice one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pumpkin spice, nutmeg on the nose, not quite sweet. Typical orange color, a little fizzy, white head. Wierd earthy, spicy flavor, nutmeg, allspice. The finish is mainly spices, not much cinnamon or sugar. Medium mouthfeel. Not bad, far from the best.

Pours out a clear orange with a small white head that quickly settles around the edge of the glass. Spices maintain a presence in the aroma but arenít overwhelming. The nutmeg really comes out in the flavor and the spices finish it off. One of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on tap at Arcadia Brewing Company. Appearance is a rich amber hue. Flavors and aromas are heavy with pumking spice, nutmeg and cinnamon predominantly. This is a nice fall beer that doesnít taste muddle like some. The spices come through clearly and are not over done and they ride on a nice crisp mouth.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky amber, thin beige head settling towards a ring, minimal lace. Aroma captures the best elements of pumpkin pie, not just the spices, but the caramelized sugars and earthiness of the pumpkin, too. Great smelling beer. Flavor doesnít quite live up, abundant cinnamon, cidery amber malts, citrus, the flavors are all there, but not working together. Thereís some of that orange juice and toothpaste disharmony going on. Medium body, lively in terms of spices but slightly flat in term of carbonation.

Danís Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #26 of 90. Tap at Arcadia, shared taster (hands down best taster offering Iíve ever had...a total of 9-3oz pours for $7.99). Pours clear orange. Pumkin, spices and giner nose with flavors that follow. I little bite on the throat, but pretty good overall.

Bottle. One of the better tasting Halloween seasonal beers Iíve come across. All of the usual spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove) are definitely noticeable, but not overpowering.

Bottle . A clear deep copper color body with a two finger off white foamy head . Aroma is of sweet roasted barley and pumpkin pie , nice amount of cinnamon and other spices with just a hint of baked apple . Flavor is lightly sweet with some nice cinnamon , and nutmeg notes , a little brown bread . A light bitterness and citrus finish from the hops . Medium body , smooth mouthfeel . A good drinker for a style that is not my favorite .

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 A nice seasonal effort, a little on the sweet side, spice are sufficiently prevelant but not as big as in Sreamin Pumpkin, but well balance. Light copper color with no head
Sept 2013 Bottle, not the same with a distinct iron taste underneath.

Pours a cloudy dark orange color with small amount of foamy white head. Aroma is sweet and spicey, with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Has a medium mouthfeel with some roasted grains, spice, and a subtle earthiness. Overall, ok, but not really my thing.
