Beer has a great full taste. Just enough to bring you back for more. Good after taste.

Sweet pumpkin, cinnamon and molasses. Full body. Best pumpkin beer on the market in my opinion.

Ok...just would like more spice and pumpkin....especially from such a brewery that really puts out some over the top stuff....may be it is why I only gave it a 3.6. May be I expected more...good despite my comments

Dogfish Head's Punkin Ale is another fall seasonal ale that delivers a delicious aroma of spice and roasted pumpkin but falls short on real pumpkin taste. The dark amber color and foamy head are far more tempting than the taste.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle I got in a trade, thanks Devin. Aroma is pumpkin and cinnamon. Flavors are pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel. Decent pumpkin beer, the pumpkin flavor is a little light. Still a great drinkable beer from DFH.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
DATE TASTED: December 23, 2013... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint...OCCASION: it’s me (Vernon Davis) and an 18-point lead against Steven Jackson and Tony Gonzalez for the fantasy championship... APPEARANCE: solid, warm amber body; steady effervescence; nice two-finger head; cloudy white and consistent, attractive lacing... AROMA: cinnamon, allspice and hazel nut front and center; a veritable pumpkin pie in a glass, at least by its smell... PALATE: medium-bodied but feisty--not the usual walk-in-the-ho-hum-fall-forest body of a brown; aftertaste is nuanced and bold...TASTE: robust cinnamon overpowers the pumpkin; secondary nutmeg and allspice develop; the cornucopia builds with hazelnut and sugary ginger... OVERALL: I needed a beer big enough to celebrate a win and strong enough to kick in my teeth if I lose--and lose I did with barely a minute to go in the game. This beer delivers what football so often does, a comfortable yet visceral drinking experience.

12/23/13. Pours translucent amber with a resilient off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin, clean, brown sugar, all spice, nutmeg, caramel; nice. Taste is pumpkin, brown sugar, roast malt, cinnamon, all spice, earthy, leather; finish is pumpkin and roast malt. Light lacing. Medium carbonation. Chewy mouth feel. Really nice. Tasty. Flavorful.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: pours an orange ale with no head production and a thin, broken sheet of white foam culminates around the edges forming a rim. No lace. Excellent clarity.
S: It’s actually tough for me to smell much here. Some faint hints of clove and nutmeg, and some sweet malts.
T: Sweet, nutmeg, and I can’t help but taste a hint of lemongrass on the finish.
M: Medium on light bodied with high carb and semi dry finish.
O: A little more subtle than some of the other pumpkin’s I’ve had, but again, nothing special.
Serving type: bottle
