Hazy brown orange. Minimal head. Nose of tons of pumpkin and spice. Very nice. Full bodied with pumkin and spice at the front, the middle and the back. Very good and heavy on the spice like I like it.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Draft at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Poured a murky iced tea color with a large tan head that quickly diminished. The aroma was of spices and nutmeg, maybe some slight roastedness. The flavor was unbelievable spices and malts. Medium body. I could easily see this one with a slice of pie after a Thanksgiving dinner!

BeerandBlues2 (9400) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Draught at 11th Southern Brewers Festival in Chattanooga. Pours cloudy nutty ruby burnt orange, well like roasted pumpkin flesh, with a quickly disappearing tan head. Pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg) and malt (grain, meal) and yeast (dough) aromas, slightly roased pumpkin notes. Spiced pumpkin malt flavor with a sour acidic hop yeasty finish. Medium bodied and fizzy palate. This is easily my favorite pumpkin ale.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 2, 2005
On tap at Asheville Pizza & Brewing Co. This ale should be served with cool whip. Strong pumpkin pie aroma. Orange amber in color. Good cinnamon flavor with a surprising smoothness. I haven’t had a pumpkin ale this good since Adler-brau in Appleton.

Best Pumpkin Ale ever. Most pumpkin ales just taste like their IPA brother with pumpkin extract but this had a flavor and complexity all its own. More than pumpkin pie in a glass.

UNCCTF (477) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 21, 2004
On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. This is by far the best pumpkin beer I’ve had. Lots of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg in both the aroma and the flavor. Finish isn’t too sweet, either. GREAT beer! I sure with CVBC bottled their great brews.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2003
SMA Holiday beer fest. Draught. Small head, brownish slightly hazy appearance. Strong pumpkin with typical pumpkin pie type spices (ginger, clove, cinnamon, etc...). Full palate with good soft-sweet finish. Like pumpkin pie, a good dessert beer with a creamy body.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Copper Orange, thin tan head. cinnamon, nutmeg and clove aroma, Pumpkin is there, of course, but this more subtle than some other pumpkin beer. More to accompany dessert, not to replace it.
