Watery amber color. No lasting head. Spicy pumpkin aroma with a sweet spicy taste. Finishes like some cleaning solution.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Tap @ The Ram. Hazy orange-brown pour with a short beige head leaving minimal lace. Nose is lightly spicy and nicely malty. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Oodles of pumpkin pie flavors here: pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, mace and a bit of biscuit and maybe even a dollop of whipped cream near the end. Finish is sweet, but there is some woody umami and a touch of hoppy bittering which is resinous and quite pleasant. Mightily impressed with this one, one of the better pumpkin ales of the 2011 season and compares well to the ST Pumking.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - NOV 27, 2011
aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon. amber color, malty taste, very low hops, not very good and doesn’t taste like beer. very cloying and not balanced at all. needs some hops, overall, easy drinker though and okay seasonal. Not good compared to post road and sam adams pumpkin ale.

after4ever (7608) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft at GPBF. Poured through a pumpkin (tapped, not pinned). Pours a cloudy and almost nitro-looking grainy dark caramel amber. Big creamy thick disc of mousse on top. Big pumpkin cookie nose. Creamy medium body--like a nitro but only about 5% of the effect; it gains a creaminess rather than being left flat and chalky (but it’s not really on nitro, so that’s just for reference). Caramel and pumpkin cookie mid-palate. Nice sweet finish. A little too desserty for some, but it works if you like it sweet.

On tap Ram U Village. On nitro, nice spice aroma. Nice opaque reddish brown. Great nitro head. Good flavor of malt and spice. A nice pumpkin offering. Love the fact it is on nitro.

I had this on draft at C.B. & Potts at Broomfield, CO. This was a very nicely done pumpkin ale. The aroma is a beautiful rendition of pumpkin and spices. The flavor pumpkin pie, and it’s not over done.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2005
On tap at Ram Brew pub. Light yellow hued ale having frizzy white diminishing head with spare lacing. Overwhelming nutmeg aroma due to added freshly ground nutmeg on beer head. Light-to-medium bodied that starts and finishes with very watery, sugar malt flavor and strong nutmeg flavor due to added nutmeg powder. Not a very memorable but drinkable beer.
