Fatehunter (1219) - 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 (764) - 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 wouldíve helped balance this one out; as it is it doesnít work. NOTE: this does not have pumpkin in it!

Bif (1451) - 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 doesnít have that bit of pop I like in a seasonal Harvest Ale. Nice beer but I expecting a bit more.

Bottle, 12oz. Itís an almost clear one, amber in color and topped by a dense, finger-thick light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is sure spiced, nutmeg and clove notes, as well some caramel maltyness in the back. Thereís some sweetness and bitterness going on in the flavor, but the spices win. Dried fruits, caramel and a touch of pine cones as well. Full to medium body, soft carbonation. Feels quite sweet, but dries up towards the end, which is also mostly spiced. Not sure... I think itís a fine brew, but if the spices were toned down a bit, it would be quite drinkable as well. 130829

Snrphnx (24) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Pleasantly (dry) hopped for a harvest ale, this seasonal pours a rich substantial head over a dark orange body that presents a hop forward balance with roasted malt caramels and mild spices present more in aroma than taste. This brew finishes crisp with lingering bitters of pine and grass. A welcome variation in a season of malt forward beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brilliant copper kettle color with lasting ivory head. Boiled yam, allspice, caramel aromas. medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Decent allspice, clove, sweet bread, caramel flavors; nicely bitter finish----not bad.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Decent amount of pumpkin flavor and finish. I was hoping for more spice and better pumpkin flavor.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 20, 2013
A - Pours a dark amber with a fleeting head. Average lacing. S - Sweet caramel malt, yeasty spice bead, some ginger, mushy apples, very bready. T - Spicy hops upfront with underlying caramel malt backbone, some apple, getting a good amount of nutmeg but the cinnamon is faint. The middle is dry and spicy. Bitter pecans come out on the finish making it pretty dry. M - Medium wet body that does a 180 in the middle turning very dry. Lower carbonation. Itís pretty spicy but itís a spiced beer. Itís not a watered down afterthought like most of itís kind. The nose tells a sweeter story than the flavor for sure. This would be a great beer around the holidays. Serving type: bottle 10-25-2012

pictoman (513) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013
Poured from 12 fl oz bottle. Clear light orange-ish brown with very minimal off-white head. Cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, brown sugar, sweet potato, pumpkin aroma. Nice sweet pumpkin taste at the beginning that quickly dissipates leaving very lacking, watery finish. Perhaps it had been kept for too long.

Pours a rich amber with a bit of frothy white head. Lots of caramel on both the nose and in the flavor. Subtle hints of spice and almost pumpkiny. Overall decent and a I would drink a few more
