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

Not sure why it is shitbagged. It tastes exactly like pumpkin pie. Isn’t that the sole reason for this style even existing?

Jabic (406) - 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.

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.

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.

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 i’m rating it lower to not artificially bias the beer as I cannot confirm if the base beer uses PVW chips.

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

SpringsLicker (3120) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 4, 2012
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 I’ve had better and many that were much worse.

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 don’t have making this one better than most.

fonefan (34282) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2013

Bottle 12fl.oz.

Clear medium orange amber colour with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spices. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, pumpkin - pumpkin spices, cinnamon. Quit balanced - special think of that it is a spiced beer. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20121128]
