I am a huge fan of pumpkin beers and this one was no letdown. Big pumpkin flavor tempered with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg.

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!

One of my favorite pumpkin beers, Harvest Time shows a strong malt backbone buoyed by delectable earthy fall spices. Full bodied, but easily drinkable, everything is well in balance here.

Draught. Fluffy off-white head, anmber colored. Nice pumpkin spice aroma. Wow, spicy! I can taste a lot of ginger, and there is a slight bitter finish with a decent bit of maltiness. Actually near the top as pumpkins go.

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber brown with virtually no head. Aroma of spiced pumpkin; allspice, cinnamon, cloves. Flavor of...spiced pumpkin, as above. Finishes with...spiced pumpkin. Both is not too bad at all, decent thickness (2% milk). This is probably the pumpkinest pumpkin ale I’ve ever had. If you like pumpkin pie, you are set.

Butters (3766) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with faint traces ow wispy khaki head. Nose is a good delicate blend of nutmeg, allspice, coriander, and other pumpkin pie spices. The flavor follows suit very closely and adds hints of lavender and brown sugar. Medium body with a clean, not cloying finish. Very enjoyable pumpkin beer. And kick ass label to boot!

Deep gold pour with off white head and lace. Huge pumpkin pie spice aroma. Tastes alot like it smells and almost as good. Good medium bodied mouthfeel and nice carbonation.

Suttree (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Nice looking Orange copper colored. In fact, it actually says "delightful" in my notes, and I don’t think I’ve used the word "delightful" in reference to beer in my life. Smells exactly like pumpkin pie. Big allspice and cinnamon flavors, plus - and this was interesting - I could taste pie crust, as well. Toned down and restrained, but very good. Sampled at 2004 Asheville Brewgrass Festival.

Brown with a hint of orange in color, clear with a thin head. Lots of pumpkin, spices (Cinnamon and nutmeg) in the nose. Great dark malt and pumpkin flavor tons of spice. This beer ranks as a high end Pumpkin beer.
