This is a subtly spiced Fall ale Brewed with Real Pumpkin that will evoke memories of holidays and family. It is brewed with our own proprietary blend of spices that will make this one of the best recieved pumpkin ales available.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy orange, with a small, bubbly, beige head. The aroma is caramel, pumpkin, strong cloves, juniper, and some herbal notes. The flavor is sweet up front, with a strong, acrid bitterness and metallic twang. Medium to heavy body, acidic, harsh, and flat. Overall, this is an abusive pumpkin ale. The pumpkin is present, especially in the initial nose, but the flavor is surprisingly unpleasant. Thanks for mentioning it, Lutz2jm. It does improve as it warms, into something considerably more mellow and approachable.

One of my favorite pumpkin beers! Out of a bottle pours a cloudy light brown with a small white head. Not much lace. Flavor is cinnamon and nutmeg and no clove. Gets better as the beer hits room temp. Great beer for the fall!

Bottle, thanks to one of my friends. Poured a orange, copper color with a small white head. Aroma was notes of nutmeg, cinnamon. Nice caramel and pumpkin notes in this. Flavor had plenty of pumpkin pie filling, nice spice balance in this one. Really enjoyed it.

Clear amber with short lived white head. Smells of corriander and nutmeg. Mikd pumpkin with spices. Unusual, but I like it.

12 ounce single bottle from Food Lion in Huntersville, NC. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is pumpkin pie aroma with cinnamon, nutmeg. The flavor has a nice dose of pumpkin that is balanced by the spices. This is somewhat thin and watery. Flavor fades into the finish.
