From bottle. Dark copper color. Aroma is grassy hops and a hint of the spices. Taste is of lightly bitter grass hops with the cinnamon and spicing. Finish is more bitter than spiced. Would be better with the addition of some pumpkin.

Poured from a bottle at ~45-50 degrees Fahrenheit. For some reason, this bee strikes me as being a good choice to sip in a cozy atmosphere while autumn leaves swirl or rain falls outside. It’s a comfort beer, if there is such a thing. Pint pours clear red-amber with 3/4-inch of hops, medium carbonation. Spicy, pleasant aroma with notes of nutmeg and hints of pumpkin. Tastes toasty and spicy. This beer doesn’t blow me away, but it’s one I’d buy again. Very subtle and warming presence.

Good sessionable beer. I am surprised the low rating. I think this in one of my favorite season beers. Well balance with the use of hops. Repeat drink on this one.

Some malt and nutmeg in the aroma, pours a orange/red with an off white head. Good mouthfeel with balanced bitterness and malt character with noticeable spiced character. Tasty and smooth

Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a nice spice. Nutmeg is here in a big way. Flavor is cinnamon to start with a little gingerbread. Lots of nutmeg and cinnamon almost a bit too much. Finish has pumpkin pie spice without the pumpkin b/c it was not used. Definitely a spice beer. If nutmeg and cinnamon in beer is not your thing then pass this one by.

Pours dark orangish brown. Smell is light. Very, very faint pumpkin pie spice smell but just enough to be noticeable and also some caramel and bready malt. Taste is toffee, toasty, and a quite hoppy with a lingering bitterness more so than any pumpkin beer i can recall. Not much spice flavor if at all detectable. One of the least spiced pumpkin beers, yet it is still good. Body feels rich and full and creamy with a nice soft, yet prickly carbonation. Overall pretty good and drinkable, but doesn’t smack you over the head with spice if thats what you’re looking for. A good session pumpkin, perhaps on a rainy fall day.

Lightly spiced but still somehow a little bland. Maybe too much nutmeg and not enough cinnamon? Just didn’t do much for me.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Poured half a finger of head on a clear, copper colored body. The aroma is lemon with some light Autumn spice. Not bad. The taste is initially okay; nutty and malty. Then it quickly turns to the "harvest spice" which sent the rest of the structure head over heels down the hill into the lake. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Not enjoyable. Disjointed and lost.

nealblind (682) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - SEP 8, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2013 Dark clear amber pour big frothy head. Aroma of planty hops & nutmeg. Very strong nutmeg flavor and significant bitter as well. Sorta like a savory eggnog beer. A bit too acidic as well on the palate. Maybe some pumpkin would’ve helped balance this one out; as it is it doesn’t work. NOTE: this does not have pumpkin in it!

Bif (1386) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 1, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 Pours a dark amber color, clear with a modest head but has some decent lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel, spices and bit of fruit. Taste is malty with caramel sweetness, spices and bit of fruit in the background. Mild bitterness and a slightly sticky finish. Fairly light body, smooth but doesn’t have that bit of pop I like in a seasonal Harvest Ale. Nice beer but I expecting a bit more.
