12 oz bottle local convenience store Pours clear gold with a average sized white head. Nutmeg and clove aroma The flavor is pumpkin pie spice. Decent, but Iíve had better and many that were much worse.

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.

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

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.

Tasted on 12/1/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours hazy, fiery dark orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to an average collar of lace. The nose is really more cinnamon and traditional pumpkin pie spices than anything else, with some caramel malt. The flavor is the same with the cinnamon really dominating. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice finish. They did a pretty solid job of recreating a pumpkin pie with this beer.

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 (1052) - 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
