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.

Draft. pours clear orange/brown with thin head. Smells of very light spice, cinnamon. nutmeg but with a bleach-y characteristic. The body is pretty thin, the beer came off as being watery. Almost no pumpkin flavor or aroma, this isn’t a great spiced beer.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2009
On tap at Captain Lawrence during the release of Smoke from the Oak Apple Brandy Barrel. Pours a clear orange amber with a thin white head. Smells of warmed pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Medium bodied and spicy, some biscuit notes. Light spicy finish with a dry bitterness. Blended this one for one with the smoked porter… excellent and highly recommended.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Growler from brewery. Light brown wiht hints of dark orange glow. Not too heavy or rich. Has some spice and some nuttyness but not much pumpkin or vegetable character. Malt sweetness and spice and hops make it pretty balanced.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Growler at Hophead75 I think. Pours an ok pale copper with a thin lasting white head. Aroma is a bit subdued- light pumpkin and pumpkin spice, cinnamon , nutmeg, with a yeasty clove and phenolic thing going on. Flavor is a bit toasty, slightly watered down a bit though- light sweetness, hints of vanilla, and brown sugar with more pumpkin pie spice and clove. A bit on the weak side for what I would like, but still easy drinking and well made.

dchmela (2614) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Growler courtesy Fred and his foresight to grab an extra growler. Nice pumpkin orange pour with little head. Very straight pumpkin aroma, not much spice but still hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Nice smooth malt taste with a slightly dry pumpkin flavor. Lack of so much spice lets the pumpkin stand out, a very tasty beer.

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Tap at Barcade - a very straightforward pumpkin ale, albeit a little boring - aroma of sticky caramel, vegetal/squash-like character, and faint spices - a little dry - kind of thin on the palate - light pumpkin flavor, with nutmeg and cinnamon on top, taking most of the palate’s attention - lingering spiciness - meh - there are many better pumpkin ales out there.

Growler from Whole Foods Bowery. Dark amber decent head. Nice pumpkin and spice aroma. Solid toasty sweet malt foundation with mild hops. taste lacks some of the spice and pumpkin found in the aroma. Medium body. I wanted more pumkimn spice and creaminess in body.

crazyvin (1910) - New York, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Copper body with a bone color head that had no lace. Aroma was slightly spicy with a pleasant hop note. A good balance between mild pumpkin notes and some bitter hops, had a mild pumpkin pie spice note to it. Smooth and easy to drink.
