From the bottle, pours a clear, deep ruby red without a lot of head. Smells like pumpkin pie. Vanilla, alspice, and even the cool wip. Tastes like pumpkin pie, but not fresh baked pumpkin pie. Definitely been in the fridge for a day or two. Sweet, some cinnamon and sweet malts in there, as well as the vanilla, alspice, and cool wip. Not bad, not my favorite pumpkin ale.

12 ounce bottle from Thaichile. Pours crystal clear copper with a pertty thin white head. The aroma features cinnamon, all spice, sugars, even some cracker/crush type aroma. Spice flavor. Sweet flavor with a bitter finish. Medium body. Not bad for pumpkin.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Bottle thanks to OldGrowth: Pours a transparent copper bronze with a thin, but frothy and spotty-lacing white head. Has a sugary sweet caramel pumpkin nose and some pleasant cinnamon spice. Body starts with a mild malty sweetness, some toasted grains, and an earthy spice presence before a slightly more bitter dry finish. A pretty decent pumpkin brew.

I thought this was tasty, Smells spicy and sweet. Pours orange and a little head but didn’t last too long. Tastes sweet and spicy full of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg. All of these are great autumn flavors. Tastes turns slightly bitter at the end to remind you that your drinking beer and not eating pumpking pie. Good but I think the thing was a bit too thin.

Bottle, from Raleigh WholeFoods. Good nose, Sweet. Like pumpkin pie. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, caramel, allspice. Clean orange copper color. Small head that faded quickly to nothing. No lace. Sweet spice flavor, like aroma with nutmeg being most prevelant to me. Got a little sour yeasty taste as it warmed. Medium body, lite creamy mouthfeel, sweet finish. Nice Pumpkin brew, Don’t know if I could drink this all the time, but I found it enjoyable. Thought the aroma & flavors were best when it was cold.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Sampled at the 10th annual Brewgrass festival in Ashville. Light chestnut color, clear. Light white head. Pumpkin pie allspice is dominant but there are notes of cinnamon in the aroma. There is also a cloying sweetness that is not all that enjoyable. Light pumpkin pie flavors that is marked mostly by allspice (as in the aroma) but with some cinnamon notes hiding in there. Light spicy bitterness at the end and some faintly noticeable grain. Light body, too thin actually. A lightly dry finish. Not my favorite.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Draught. Clear orange color with off white head that laced the glass. Smells of pumpkin bread, cinnamon, and caramel. Tart up front like unripened fruit. The tartness mellows leaving a pleasant grainy aftertaste accented by pumpkin and cinnamon.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Pours hazy dark orangish copper with off-white head. The aroma is pumpkin puree and spices with some caramel malt. The flavor is malty, on the dry side for this style, with a good dose of pumpkin puree and spice flavors. The palate is medium and smooth, but not terribly complex.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2006 Pours a murky copper color with a decent head. Aroma is mostly allspice with a little bit of sweet malt. Flavor is dominated by spices with a hint of pumpkin. This 2006 version is slightly better than the previous version.
