My favorite pumpkin ale, possibly because the pumpkin is mellow and theres some good hops and spices comming through it.

Bottled. I actually thought I rated this one already. They should rename the Punkin Pie Ale. That's what I got from this one. Liquid pumpkin pie. Had a good spicy flavor to it.

Darkover (1517) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2004
Light amber with a small beige head. Cinnamon aroma. Flavor of spices and some pumpkin. Not bad. The spices and pumpkin are not overpowering like some pumpkin ales. But its still not as good as Crooked River Pumpkin Harvest Ale

Smells like Pumpkin and cinnimon. Hey, this is always what I expected a pumkin lager should taste like. Fancy that.

Nice orange color with a thin but long lasting white head. Wonderful pumpkin/cinamon scent. Nice thick beer, with a good layer of spices making this very interesting and enjoyable to drink. Darn good stuff.

Bottle. Poured amber-brown with a minimal head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is like pumpkin pie - spicey with clove, nutmeg, cinnamon and all spice - earthy and sweet. Flavor is surprisingly good, rich, spicey with lots of pumpkin and a mild hoppy bite in the finish. Medium body and minimal carbonation.

The_Beer_God it the rater to thank for sending this seasonal my way, A quality guy for sure!
Pours a slightly hazy Amber / Orange body topped with a fluffy tan head. The aroma is all spice, malt, and vague notes of pumpkin. The pumpkin shows its presence in the crisp organic flavor. Probably the best pumpkin brew I’ve had; the spice is not overpowering though; cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, large suggestions of toffee and caramel malt, but it is the creamy and buttery palate that I think I enjoy most. This brew leaves dripping sheets of lacing around the glass as it shows off its wonderful texture.
Thanks again Mike!
