Poured an orange with a white bubbly head that clinged to the glass. Spicy cinnamon aroma. Nice malty pumpkin spice taste. Good stuff.

Pours an amber hue with a small slight/off-white head. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, roses???? Very similar aroma to anchors christmas brews. Flavors of pumkins, malt, spice.....As it warms it gets a little better, but nothing fantastic. This is the best spiced ale I have had yet.

Clear, reddish color body with a smooth, frothy head. Full bodied with a nice, spicy flavor and more of a pumpkiny finish. Exact opposite of the last Pumpkin Ale I drank. A little alcohol warming. The spices in the flavor remind me of that in a pumpkin pie (where it’s usually hard to taste the pumpkin in anyway). Very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange in color with a thin whiteish head. Spices(nutmeg and cinamon)and some pumpkin in the aroma. More emphasis on the nutmeg and cinamon in the taste than the pumpkin, but the pumpkin is present. There is a mild burnt taste in there though. A clean finish but just a bit of lingering though.

12 oz. bottle. Sweet, spicy aroma, with a decent touch of pumpkin. Nice, deep orange color with minimal white head. Spicy, slightly pumpkiny flavor. Not very drinkable. Not really a big fan, in general.

Poured light gold amber, aroma was very minimal, just a little bit of spice and vanilla,pumpkin taste is distinguishable but not bold, cinimmon and nutmeg certainly evident, anice enough ale, but I wish someone would make one that fuller and bolder

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle: Short lived white head on a clear medium amber body. Allspice & nutmeg take center stage at first. Perfumey, hairspray alcohol aroma comes next. Very light caramel malt, pumkin, & only hints of cinnamon. Well balanced, very low spice flavors, but cinnamons is there. Some honey notes, allspice, & low fruitiness. Finish is on the dry side, has some alcohol, cidery alcohols notes, w/ a nutmeg & allspice aftertaste. Lighter body, not full, medium carbonation, well hidden alcohol given the nose; smooth. Not a bad pumpkin ale, but I’m still not a big fan of them.

Reminded me of pumpkin pie minus the sugar. Not bad, but I would have this one as an after dinner brew. A little syrupy and bitter with a nice spice note. Not to be had in large quantities, due to the flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong smell of pumpkins and nutmeg on the pour, come out medium orange with a light white head. Pumpkin taste is readily apparent, with a strong finish from the nutmeg and cinnamon. I thought it was a little bit bitter on the very end. A solid pumpkin, but I still think Bethlehem Brew Works is better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the very few Pumpkin beers I’ve enjoyed. Pumpkin/amber color with healthy tan head. The aroma is of pumpkin pie: pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, brown sugar. Medium body, a tad watery, just the right carbonation. Flavor was of pumpkin pie. More the chiffon style with the heavier notes of spices. Enjoyable.
