A spicy finish balances the sweet start of this seasonal favorite. Orange in color with the delicious taste and aroma of pumpkin pie!

Smells great. Taste is not as interesting. Good beer, but finishing is harder then the first few sips.

desurfer (1246) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Deep amber body with little head. Aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg with some sweetness. Flavor is chock full of pumpkin goodness, little hoppiness and a well-rounded sweetness. Definitely good if pumpkin ales appeal to you.

Barreras (1229) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Pours a orange almost copper color. Aroma of pumpkin spice with nutmeg. Taste of simple pumpkin pie with mild sweetness and minimal spice throughout. A decent venture in a pumpkin seasonal beer.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Draught at the Boulder brewery.<P> Beer is medium-amber colored with a thick, large, creamy, beige, mostly diminishing head.<P> Not really enough pumpkin character to satisfy mu pumpkin-beer craving. The aroma was malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, caramel; Hoppy with moderate note of resin/pine, light note of lemon zest; Yeasty with a light note of dough; Miscellaneous notes included a light-to-moderate cinnamon and a light note of pumpkin pie filling.<P> The flavor was moderately sweet, lightly bitter, moderately acidic/sour with a long, lightly acidic, lightly bittersweet finish. Slightly dull and vegetal in the finish.<P> The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

Good because the pumpkin and spices were not totally overdone as with most of these types of beers.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Tasted on tap at DTM’s Bday. I was surprised by this one. Nice and smooth, this brew had notes of brown sugar, cloves and nutmeg. Not overpowering and very balanced beer.

radio_nowhere (1112) - Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Draft at their Frederick, MD location served in a pils glass, clear dark copper color with off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, faint clove) and some caramel. Taste adds a little graham cracker sweetness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, soft with spicy/sweet finish. Pretty good balance between pumpkin and spice, nice.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Had on tap at the restaurant. Pours deep amber with a real nice creamy head on top. Aroma has lots of cinnamon and spice but I really donít taste much pumkin. These beers usually do a pretty good job of resembling a pumkin pie, this one is all spice. Not bad.

AndyReynolds (1048) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Draft. Aroma is strong with pumpkin pie spices and sweet malts. On the palate it is a little over carbonated for the style. Flavor is a little watered down and maybe too strong with the spices.
