fuck yea, pumpkin beer! bottled october 2009 taken down 12/5/2009 provided by ucusty. dirty bronzed amber pour with a small soft whitish head. it smells like pumpkin pie... clove, ginger, caramel, vanilla, nutmeg and mild cinnamon with just a noticeable touch of grain. the flavor is the same... marked lactose note, vanilla, earthy pumpkin sweetness and caramel malt with a nice light bitterness on the finish. it lingers like a piece of pumpkin pie. medium bodied with prickly carbonation... crisp yet smooth and creamy. 7/3/7/3/14/3.4

Bonus- thanks goryshkewych. Clear amber pour with no head to speak of. The aroma is massively spicy- cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, clove, coriander, and sweet caramel malt. The flavor is also on the sweet side- creamy pumpkin pie, caramel, toffee, and the whole gamut of spices previously mentioned. The palate is super smooth and caressing- perhaps even suede-like. The finish is semi-dry, crisp, and clean. I quite enjoyed this little number- thanks George.

Orange copper pour with very minimal head. Aroma is impressively spicy, with loads of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and a touch of caramel malt. Flavor holds much of the same spice, but in a creamer form, much like a pumpkin puree. This would clearly go beautifully with a nice homemade pumpkin pie. Palate is medium bodied, and the spice adds a nice crisp touch to the finish. Solid brew for the style.

Trade bonus. Lightly hazy orange/copper in color with a small head. Aroma is spicy, lots of pumpkin spice- the usual nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger. clean aroma. Taste is spicy and lightly sweet, a nice toasted malt/caramel backbone with nice, fresh pumpkin flavor. Overall medium bodied, a touch of bitterness in the finish. The texture/palate is good- a good holiday ale.

A nice seasonal ale bonused to me in a trade with Ucusty. Thanks David! It pours amber with a disappearing off white head. The aroma instantly makes me crave pumpkin pie like right now. Nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, (I know, redundant) The flavor is spicy and sweet. Nice balance. This is a good seasonal, much better than an Octoberfest. Obviously, this would pair well with a certain fall dessert.

Very nice on tap. Subtle spiced and I would say different from the crowd. The ale quality comes through, refreshing, golden color, modest head, faint pleasant fragrance
