3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to a pint glass,I’d like to start off by saying that I haven’t had many pumpkin ales nor do I like brown ales but this was recommended to me by a friend so I decided to try it out,pours a rich honey brown with a decent 2 finger off white head that doesn’t stick around long with very low lacing,a lot of bubbles from the carbonation, I get a very spicy nose its all there the cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar mixed with a decent amour of malt and faint hints of pumpkin, the taste follows suit with a nice spice notes up front rounding off with a sweet malt backbone this beer doesn’t put the focus on the pumpkin but its there ,has a very nice balance and high carbonation but surprisingly smooth almost creamy on the palate ...this is a perfect session beer for a fall day I didn’t think I would enjoy this but it surprised me all in all a solid fall seasonal ...cheers

I get the well blended aromas of punkin, nutmeg, and cinamon in this crystal clear bronze orangie colored brew with a small white head around the rim of the glass. Pretty much straight forward with the punkin taste. Nice and crisp with a rather lightish body for what i was expecting. A solid brew worth a buy.

This is a pumpkin beer. I don't like pumpkin beers. This pumpkin beer is okay because it isn't overpowered by cinnamon & sugar like a pumpkin pie. There are some hops and a cool malt profile in this pumpkin beer. In the realm of pumpkin beers, this is solid.

Pours a darker orange, lacy head with lots of carbonation. Aroma is malt with slight pumpkin. Pumpkin spice flavor with a malt and pumpkin back. Noticeable alcohol aftertaste and relatively clean mouthfeel.

One of my favorite pumpkin beers. Heavy in spices and pumpkin tastes. It is perfect for fall when the weather gets colder and you need Dogfish Head to bring the flavor.

On tap at The Hopping Pig in San Diego. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma is slight pumpkin and slight malt. Nutmeg also. No pumpkin pie sweetness. Fairly dry. Ok but not my favorite in the style.

On draft poured in pint glass. Aroma was a little lacking, no head. Tastes light a "light" pumpkin beer. Overall, for a seasonal, I’d recommend.

Well-balanced spice aroma, amber color, pleasing bitterness along with a complex but, again, balanced spice palette. Definitely NOT pumpkin pie filling in a bottle, this is a good representative for this seasonal staple.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours copper with a off white head. Taste pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.
