Cloudy orange with white wispy foam. Aroma is vegetal with some malt, caramel and pumpkin spice. Seems like I can actually taste pumpkin along with some malt and pumpkin spice. Well balanced. The spices are mild and work well. Very nice pumpkin ale.

Pumpkin pie aroma. It pours a rich amber color. It has a nice blend of sweet pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Those flavors are blended with a rich malt flavor. Love drinking this when it comes out!

Aroma is spices, mild/medium sweetness and pumpkin bread. The flavor is spices mixed with sweetness, pumpkin, fruit and a tart finish. The spices mixed with sweetness was unique, pretty good pumpkin ale.

ben4321 (3560) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/17/13

Aroma: The nose is bread and "off" malts with some spice, not that pumpkiny or nutmegy though
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange-gold color with a small head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is sweet and malty, some spice, vanilla, and a mild earthiness as well
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has an alright mouthfeel, and a tingly, lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This beer being not really all that impressive to go along with being not really all that pumpkiny makes for a mediocre score from me.

SamP01 (515) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Pours a dark hazy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma is of mild pumpkin spices and nutmeg, and some caramel malt. Taste same as aroma with some mild hops bitterness. Sweet and mildly bitter on the end. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. This brew is not overly sweet but I would have liked a bit more pumpkin spices in the flavor. Overall still a descent showing for a pumpkin ale, good overall.
