Oh Punkin Ale, how I love thee! Color of clear amber with a off-white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, vanilla and other spices. As far as taste, the first thing that hits you is the carbonation, followed by the flavors of a pumpkin pie with a nice malt finish at the back end. Easy, refreshing drink for the fall. I recommend enjoying this beer while watching your favorite football team.

12 oz bottle from Whole Foods in Hillsboro, OR. There is a lot going on in this beer. Looks heavily carbonated. Initial nose has fall spices, dirt, and cardboard, with a hint of caramel later on. Mouthfeel is crisp, with a bit of a spicy bite. Sweetness is subdued, as most of the malt sugars went to alcohol. Nice spice profile, with some hop bitterness in the finish. I would have preferred a stronger malt backbone, but that is not uncommon for me. Not bad. Would drink again tomorrow.

Bottle while visiting Seattle. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is light cinnamon, cloves. Light body, medium carbonation. Cinnamon, cloves, pear, apple, lemon, light caramel... Its fine, but not my thing.

This one surprised me. The most important thing for me here is that it tasted like a beer first, and not pumpkin with cream or spice or whatever. This is a solid ale, with substantial hop and pleasant pumpkin. Would drink again.

Simply delicious! It wasn’t what I originally expected. It starts out subtle and the flavor builds as you drink it. It has subtle notes of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and brown sugar. I suggest sipping slowly at almost room temp for best flavor.

4pk of the new logo bottles poured into a snifter. Pours a light see-through orange with a foamy disappearing off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin, nutmeg, clove, slight vanilla. Flavors follow through finished by a malty caramel. One of the better beers in this style as it is not over spiced like they tend to be. Good beer if you’re in the mood for a pumpkin seasonal.

12oz bottle that poured a deep copper to orange color with white head. a mild lacing on the glass with soft carbonation. the aroma leads the nose to cinnamon, yams, sugars and pumpkin. medium body with nice malt flavor with cinnamon, brown sugar, pumpkin, yams. the alcohol is well hidden but you do get a slight burn on the end. overall pretty good pumpkin beer. flavors are evenly balanced throughout.

This is the beer that started my pumpkin beer craze some ten years ago, still as good as that first time. Four packs of pumpkin beers are the way to go, 99% off the time you get what you pay for!

Not much of a head, darker golden color. Nose of malt and pumpkin pie spice. Taste is pretty much the same. Not bad for a pumpkin beer. But it's a pumpkin beer, which always sounds like a great beer to have on a cooler early fall day but never fails to disappoint.
