Hazy dark gold to amber pour with a thin white head. Aroma is loaded with lactose and pie spice, some biscuit and caramel and just a hint of sweet pumpkin. Flavor is pumpkin pie spice, heavy on ginger, clove and especially cinnamon, some earthy and sweet pumpkin, biscuit, pale caramel and some interesting savory buttery toffee. Creamy to chewy feel, medium body, medium carbonation. Pretty good, spice heavy, pumpkin beer.

Wrex? Just pumpkinataur on my bomber. The aroma is just like pumking. Sweet graham pumkin spices and a bigger note of vanilla. Kind of orangey fruit and oaky. More nutmeg than cinnamon or ginger. Really nice. Best pumpkin aroma ever so far.Taste is same but a little milder, definatly more on vanilla side with orange and almost coriander like spice. Hint of ginger and cinnamon. Nice body, right amount of sweetness for a pumkin. Very enjoyable but man this is like a pumking clone almost, could even be better. Palate was really good but as it warms it got a bit thin.

Glowing orange pour. This one is kind of intense. Lots of cinnamon, some vanilla. Not bad, but I prefer a little more of a subtile pumpkin beer.

Bottle:   Overall a nice spiced Autumn seasonal that has a bit of tartness to it, which balances with the sweetness.   Clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon, with a bit more clove and nutmeg.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tangy and spicy on the finish, with a touch of tartness.   Seems to have a little lemon twist to it too.   Pretty tasty!

Aroma is pumpkins, cinnamon and spices/heat. The flavor is pumpkins, yams, spices, malts and a big tangy/sweetness in the finish.

10/23/13 trade from Jamil. A tasty, spiced pumpkin. Buttery pumpkin pie scent with a pretty bronze pour, but a slightly thin feel. Big spicy nutmeg and cinnamon flavor to fruity apple an pumpkin notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Poured medium orange with a short, sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla, nutmeg, and pumpkin meat with some odd tangy character around (not sure what it was.. not quite medicinal, but not great). The flavor found tart apple skins and light oak-like character upfront.. grainy throughout.. nutmeg, ginger, and related pie spice throughout (in a good way).. meatier pumpkin meat and the aforementioned spices on the long finish. Medium-bodied with full-ish carbonation on the palate.. a bit grainier than I’d like.. overall this got better as it progressed.

A really good seasonal from the Capital Brewery and a relatively new addition!

On tap at Ervs Mug. Clear copper with a creamy tan head. Aroma is heavily spiced with allspice, nutmeg and a caramel backer. Taste of pumpkin pie with allspice, cinnamon, ginger, caramel and toffee. Finishes up spicy and not bad. Kirby’s exit means we’ll finally get some much needed new styles from the brewery that brought me into the craft beer world many years ago.

Pours clear dark amber with a thin white ring of head. Nose is pumpkin pie crust, spice, and cool whip. Sweet bready malt with a touch of pumpkin. Taste is the same...smooth but bold pumpkin pie flavor, heavy on the allspice with a little heat. Medium body and carbonation. Love the new style from the new brewer.
