COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with pureed pumpkins added directly to the mash, and pumpkin pie spices added at the end of the boil, this beer packs a ton of flavor into a malty and smooth amber colored ale. Perfect for when the weather starts to change and ugly sweaters come out of storage.

A golden amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a nice pumpkin spice with sweet caramel malt. In mouth, a nice crisp malt with smooth pumpkin spices notes, not cloying, a bit oily, quaffable. Cask at Syracuse Real Ale Festival, Oct. 23 2009.

Syracuse Real Ale Festival. Medium orange colour, average mouthfeel. Interesting carbonation with nice, understated spices.

Growler filled at the brewery and consumed the next day. Pours a clear orange amber with a moderate linen white head that faded by the second sip and left scant lace. Pleasant aroma of malt, pumpkin, cinnamon and allspice. The flavor is malt, pumpkin, cinnamon and allspice and noticeably absent of any brown sugar. This is not a sweet beer, and is fact, more on the dry side. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Very easy to drink. Well crafted.

mjs (4746) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2009
(Draught) Amber and hazy. Medium sized white head. Spices and cranberry in aroma. Medium bodied and dryish palate with medium carbonation. Malts, molasses, spices, bitterness and lightly sea water in taste. Malty and bitter aftertaste. Again a decent pumpkin spice beer.

Draft. Poured coppery bronze. Smells like another pumpkin ale. Not a particularly good one, had all the elements but it didnt’ mesh.

@Freaktoberfest, pours bronze with a nice head, aroma of pumpkin, marmalade, caramel a vegetable water, flavors of tomato, vegetable water, grain and some bitterness towards the end, watery and almost undrinkable.

malrubius (1821) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Half (thank goodness) growler from Decicco. Copper with lasting head and lace. Strong clove nutmeg pumpkin spice aroma. Pumpkin sweet caramel brown sugar with bitter gritty spicy nutmeg finish. Undrinkable. Why did I throw away seven bucks? Mouthwash please.

Pwn3d (1961) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2011 On tap at rattle n hum. Semi sweet pumpkin with nutmeg and cinnamon. Nice and above average. Pumking still owns.

blipp (6278) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Draft. Pours amber orange with a thin head. Toasty, nutty malt aroma, with pumpkin and a hint of spice. The flavor definitely lets the flavor of actual pumpkin take precedent over typical spices that usually get thrown in these beers. Decent.

growler that I was so glad to get after missing this one last year. color is a dark orange amber with a thin white head. aroma has fresh pumpkin, light spices, dark sugar, and a bit of nuts. mouth feel is medium and the carbonation on the low side. flavor has a nice authentic pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, sweetness, and some back ground hops. I like the fact the pumpkin takes a front over the spiced side and the vanilla bean version took this to a whole new level.
