Draft at the brewpub. This is yet another pumpkin ale that is extra heavy on the cinnamon and nutmeg flavor and not so heavy on actual pumpkin or beer flavor. I think other people really enjoy this kind of thing as it reminds them of a sweet, spiced pumpkin dessert, though July is an unconventional time to serve such things. The spices completely take over this beer, though it never really gets too sticky or too sweet like others in the style. Itís just not for me.

A: Orangish/Mild Amber Hue, Passes Lots of Light, White Head Ring, Mild Lacing S: Yams, Pumpkin, Mild Allspice T: Pumpkins, Mild Sweet Potatoes, Mild Allspice M: Mediocre Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet Overall, though the carbonation is low (although 6+ months old), the taste is very smooth and balanced, not like some pumpkin ales that are spice bombs to cover up a lack of pumpkin, this one is very nice and easy drinking.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a tan head. Aroma of spices and malt. Taste was heavy spice, pumpkin and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a bronze amber with a thin layer of white. Aroma is a very nice pumpkin with just a touch of spice. Delicious pumpkin flavor without the overwhelming spice. I think I needed to try this on a few occasions to really appreciate this.

On cask at Craft Brewed, Nashville TN with PVW chips added this gives the beer a completely different profile, adding the PVW chips adds some coconut some heat and takes the edge off the spice.. really a nice beer, though iím rating it lower to not artificially bias the beer as I cannot confirm if the base beer uses PVW chips.

Bottle. Orange in color. Has a quickly disappearing, soda-like head. Has some floaties. Aroma is spicy, but light. Flavor has a "pie-crust", nutty finish that most pumpkin ales donít have making this one better than most.

MmmcKay (1051) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - OCT 25, 2012
12 ounce bottle. A lighter bodied pumpkin ale that does a good job of showcasing the pumpkin flavor as opposed to other spices. It wonít win any awards for being rich, big, or complex. But it is drinkable. Notes of pumpkin, graham cracker, cinnamon, and spice. Very decent.

Light, spicy, and crisp. Not a huge pumpkin flavor presence, but a ton of pumpkin pie spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabic (409) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Ar: A hint of toasted malt and some nutmeg. Ap: Clear amber-orange - small off-white head with poor retention and just a wisp of foam. T: Deep caramel and brown sugar up front, reminiscent of baked yams - cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg - medium-sweet - some vanilla - caramel and brown sugar on the finish with a very light bitterness. P: Medium-full body with medium-low carbonation - finish is medium. O: Very rich and satisfying pumpkin ale - really captures a lot of the "secondary" flavors of pumpkin pie (brown sugar, caramel, vanilla), along with the normal spicing, and a very satisfying mouthfeel.

An incredible autumn beer, full of flavor without any bitterness left behind. The perfect beer for the best of seasons.
