I was a bit nervous about this ale. It was though very good. Just like pumpkin pie. Cloves, allspice, nutmeg. Somehow this beer works nicely.

Hazy orange-amber in color, small head. Looks nice. Smells like fresh pumpkin pie- and I happen to love pumpkin pie. Lots of spices in there. A nice, but a bit plain flavor. The taste is much weaker than the scent.

Brown-orange beer that pours with a nice lasting beige head. Smells like a pumpkin pie. Good carbonation. Tastes very sweet fading to a medium-long finish that tastes of clove and cinnamon. This is like drinking a pumpkin pie, and I have to say that as strange as that sounds I like it.

The pumpkin aroma is unmistakable, the flavor falls just short of how good this smells.

First off, I only wish that I had tried tihs back in Oct/November instead of late February. Fate is fate though so you just go with it. Anyways, I thought this beer was rather intriguing and canít WAIT to try it again in said months. The aroma wasnít too bad with some soapy aroma and a little pumpkin thrown in. I didnít get nutmeg as some reviewers did. As it warmed up a bit I also got a slight metallic nose too. Appearance was just beautiful with a dark maple appearance and a huge head, although the carbonation was fairly lacking. Mouthfeel was nice and soft, although a bit flat. Flavor was pumpkin, but in a way that was pleasing not distracting. There was some maltiness to it that was also nice, although unlike other reviewers I didnít get (again) any nutmeg or allspice. Perhaps wishful thinking or just that time of year. Overall this was a nice brew that would go wonderfully during Oct/November. Canít wait!

Initial impression when pouring - looked like pumpkin. Very pleasant taste, hints of pumpkin and cinnamon.

Pours a clear copper-orange with a small foam ring. Lots of nutmeg in the nose, with a bit of cinnamon as well. Nutmeg dominates the flavour, and blends with hops for a great bitterness. Slight pulpy pumpkin flavour as well. Thin body with decent carb. I really like the spices in this beer - quite bold!

starts off with a foamy white head that mostly dissapates. Nice pumpkiny color, strong but pleasant pumpkin pie spice aroma. The flavor isnít bad, but itís over carbonated and seems a bit thin.

A good alternative to Harpoonís Winter Warmer since Harpoon is not yet distributed on the West Coast.
