12 oz bottle thanks Sam! Pour is clear to slightly hazy orange with white head that dissipates fairly quickly, pretty effervescent with tiny bubbles coming up. Aroma brings notes of nice pumpkin, toffee and biscuit, hints of clove and cinnamon in there as well. Taste is really nice and balanced, with hints of sweet pumpkin and biscuit notes mixing well with some nice clove, cinnamon, hints of earth and grass, finishing fairly bitter from the spice and dry. Nicely done!

Draft. Cloudy orange brown color. Aroma of spice. Taste is watery spice. Not enough gourd or body.

Bottle. Nice looking rusted penny body with a paper-thin white head. Nose is pleasant, though minimal, with some cinnamon and pumpkin. Taste floats nicely between spiced and vegetative. The big flaw for me comes in the too short, too flat finish. Iíd have guessed it was a bad bottle, but the whole six pack had this flaw.

Bottle. Pours amber with thin white head. Aroma of cinnamon, ginger, molasses, pumpkin. Strong pumpkin and spice flavor, although less aggressive than Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin. If you like autumn seasonal pumpkin ales than this is a pretty good one. Overall it doesnít even taste much like a beer, although Iím slightly reminded in the spice finish.

DiarmaidBHK (3527) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Draft at Brixx. Pours orange with a thin white head. Big pumpkin on the nose. Nice spice rack on the tongue although the pumpkin tastes a bit prefab. Clean finisher. Solid but a bit one note.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Deep hazelnut with a light head of white. Great aroma of clove, cinnamon, and all those pumpkin pie spices. Medium body, flavors are a mess of spices with a cloying, medicinal bitterness that distracts from everything else. Almost tastes like vodka in the finish. Like a lot of pumpkin brews Iíve had, this is way over spiced and not very balanced.

A: The beer pours a cloudy brown color with just a small off-white head. S: Itís slightly acidic on the nose before the spices come into play. Plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg, perhaps a hint of vanilla. There are some definite green apple and apple cider notes along with a light bread aroma. T: Starts off with sweet malt and bread notes. Some good spiciness of nutmeg and cinnamon. There is a mild toasted malt flavor as well as some hints of fruits and a light tartness. M: Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. O: Reminiscent of my failed/infected pumpkin homebrew a couple years ago.

Tasted at twin city taps. Ok beer. This tasted of spice more than pumpkin slightly dry.

Received this from my Secret Santa KarrHeel03, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a two finger tightly bubbled off white head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Smells of nutmeg and pumpkin pie spices mostly. I really canít get through the spices to find any beer in the nose. Taste is more of the same spices with an almost vegetal taste deep in the background. Medium body that finishes on the dry side. Lightly carbonated. Nothing objectionable here, but nothing spectacular either.

refreshing pumpkin, lemon juice, i like it because of the freshness of the flavor.
