Bottle from Randall - thanks! Pours a hazy and soft orange/red with an impressive off-white head. Aroma is dominated by pumpkin and a combination of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ?). Smells good. Taste is clean, light pumpkin up front giving way to a pleasant blend of spices and a slight hint of bitterness into, but not through, the finish. Feels a bit thin in the mouth but itís a really well made and enjoyable beer. Another winner from Cigar City.

bottle poured a brown amber color with an off white head. aroma has pumpkin pie spices, pumpkin, brown sugar, and caramel. mouth feel has a nice coating and a hefty body on a pumpkin with enough carbonation to keep it lively. flavor has nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, and brown sugar. this has a nice rich texture and the spicing is at a nice level that lets the thick pumpkin side get through.

Murky amber pour with good white head. Good lacing. Nice aroma of pumpkin pie that isnít overpowering. Very well rounded flavor. They found a nice balance of pumpkin pie spice and beer. One of the few pumpkin beers Iíve tried that didnít over do it. Good body but slight off-flavor on finish. Overall, one of the best pumpkin beers Iíve tried.

Draught into a snifter. Awesome pumpkin.... Beautiful deep gold color with a full finger head which held for a minute. Aroma of pumpkin, light spice and sweetness. Flavor is similar with light spice and mostly pumpkin. Light alcohol is noticeable. Body is light to medium with a nice lingering flavor. Definitely one of my favorites for the season
