Hand-bottle from cgarvieuk, Benjii and pals. Thanks guys! Been sitting in my coat pocket for hours, definitely not in best condition... But here goes. Murky brown/copper. Nose is big pumpkin, big cinnamon, really warm and seasonal. Sweet up front, surprisingly fizzy too, some sharp spices and pumpkin fruit, big cinnamon. Fades into a much more rounded body, with a warming finish. Nice stuff, would love to try it in better condition.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2011
750mL bottle, labeled SEPT 2011 ONETWO, from a trade with tricyclist. Pours hazy bright red and orange with a 1.5-finger fluffy beige head. Aromas of sweet marshmallow and cocoa, vanilla, orange creme, and some pumpkin and brown sugar. The flavor is circus peanuts, vanilla, sugared gourd, and buttered crust with light cinnamon and spices. The aftertaste is light vanilla and alcohol. Low carbonation, medium body, and very slightly warming; the alcohol is well-hidden here. Nice stuff; sweet, gourd-y, and spicy but not overwhelming. Thanks man! [872]

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from TheCheeseMan. Thanks Daniel! It pours a clear brownish gold with a small head. The nose is perfumed with notes of pumpkin spice, vanilla, and cinnamon. The flavor has an aggressive bitterness. Lots of floral and spice notes, lower sweetness than you typically find in the style. It reminds me of a cross between Old Spice and pumpkin pie spice. I didnít really get any pumpkin out of this one. Medium to full body with fairly aggressive carbonation and a lingering bitterness. Good, but I will still take my Williamsburg.

ExpendableHero (841) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2011
I keep on soldiering through these pumpkin beers, and surprise: this one is not half bad. Amber/orange brew with a white head. Aromas of cinnamon, and nutmeg. Tastes of fresh nutmeg/cinnamon, mixed spices, and some caramel. There is a strange minty taste present as well. Sweet nutmeg finish lingers for too long. A bit nutty too. Not bad.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle:   Deep amber, thick, moderate frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Strong clove and allspice aroma.   Same on the tongue.   Spices arenít too bright, but the clove is pretty hefty.   The body is also pretty hefty, feels a bit thick.   Backside has some soft cinnamon and nutmeg.   Aside from the spices, this beer feels and tastes thick.   Strong yet dull spices on the finish.   Tiz clean, nice flavor, good body, but not very bright.   Thanks to Diego and Jason for sending me a bottle!

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Pours an orange amber color with a white foam head. Aroma of caramel, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sweet caramel cinnamon taste with some nutmeg. Nice bitter layer for balance. A nuttiness, perhaps some toffee. Very enjoyable.

DocLock (9709) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2011
750 from Craft Ale House. Pours pumpkin orangy with 1-finger white head. Nose is pumpkin, some pumpkin spice, and earthy malty notes. Tastes sweet, pumpkiny, with a syrupy smooth mid-palate, and a very spicy finish. Perhaps the spiciest pumpkin ale Iíve had, and it worked well for me.

Macegan75 (812) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Pours a medium to light brown with a lot of orange as well. Nose is bready with hints of home made hard candy & spices. First sip is very smooth with right balance of brown malt and spices, not overpowering. Finish is nice with pumpkin pie flavors. I am not a fan of pumpkin beers, but this good.
