Sampled from a 750 ml bottle @ FFF 15th Anniversary. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma is moderately sweet with pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg and a slight earth quality. The flavor is malty, pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg with light herbal notes and mild bitterness at the finish. Pretty smooth and creamy mouth feel. I thought this was an easy drinking pumpkin beer, but nothing really stood out here.

750ml Bottle: Aroma of pumpkin, spice, nutmeg, and slight cinnamon. Poured orange in color with a small, creamy, loose, tan head that greatly diminished, except for around the edges. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, pumpkin, spice, and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Pumpkin, malt, spice, and nutmeg finish is lightly dry. 8.5%ABV is noticeable in the flavor, but not overbearing.

dmac (5598) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2011
750 ml bottle from Capones. Poured an orange/brown with a smaller fizzy off white head. Aroma is far more spice dominated then pumpkin. Notes of cinnamon, all-spice, nutmeg,dry caramel, brown toast. Medium bodied that has a creamy feel and soft to average carbonation. Flavor has some slight toasted pumpkin seeds along with caramel, toast, nutmeg and clove. Not bad but this is not a 3.7 beer.

Bottle shared with Steve and co, courtesy of markwise. Thanks Mark! Burnt orange/brown appearance with an off white head. Aroma is fairly spicy with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, mild vanilla, allspice, and moderate pumpkin. Easy drinking flavor with a good pumpkin presence and moderate to high spiciness- again nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and allspice.

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]

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 didn’t 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.
