Tap. Clear orange-amber with a foamy caramel white head. Aroma is candied fruit and light spice. Flavor is sweet candied cherries and some light spicing. A warm finish. Medium to heavy body with a somewhat syrup like consistency.

ajnepple (3430) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Amber and clear appearance with a beige head. Mild pumpkin aroma and flavor with toasted grains, biscuits, bready malts, a touch of booze and a light noble/spicy hop bitterness. Full body with a light fruity, mild sweet finish. None of those typical pumpkin spices here, which is a relief to me.

Draft @ the brewery. Pours an amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty spicy pumpkin aroma. Fruity malty spicy pumpkin and caramel flavor. Has a fruity malty spicy sweetish pumpkin finish.

arminjewell (8617) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big caramel, toffee, slight earth, veggie notes, into a trashy, slightly vinegary end. Taste is a mix of vinegar, some sickly pickled veggie notes, hints of earth, grass, slight caramel, toffee, hints of grain. Hmm.

Clear bronze with a pretty strong boozy aroma with big notes of earthy pumpkin spice and a bit of rummy bubblegum. Flavor is big and a little boozy with notes of earthy pumpkin spice along with a lot of earthy toffee/pumpkin and booze estery sweetness.

On tap at De Steeg. Pours an orange color with white head. Pumpkin, caramel, malty flavors. Probably my least favorite here.

adnielsen (10070) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Tap @ De Steeg. Pours a dark orange appearance with an off white head. A bit corny, squash, lightly spicy, mild caramel aroma. Somewhat tangy, raspberry, black cherry, light caramel, goopy flavor. Smooth for the abv but not very good.

brokensail (13227) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
On tap @ De Steeg. Pours clear copper in color with a white head. Funky, cheesy aroma. Sweet sugar, caramel, and toffee. A bit of booze, some fruit, kind of meh. Flavor is really sweet. Caramel, toffee, and sugar. Boozy, lightly fruit, and kind of a funkiness. Apple cider in there as well.

theothermatt (278) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2013
On tap at De Steeg. 2oz taster. Golden pour. No lacing. I can’t get over how much this smells like apple juice. Very sweet, a little bit of cinnamon and vanilla with a faint pumpkin kick on the back end. Very hot and not at all enjoyable.

Steve_0 (3346) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear amber with a big white head; great lacing. Big spice, potpourri, raisins, fruity, nutmeg, cinnamon, sweet potatoes, pie crust, and molasses in the aroma. Taste is pumpkiny, nutmeg, big spice, caramel, biscuit, licorice, and bread. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not a bad pumpkin ale at all the alcohol is hidden beautifully.
