Damico (2790) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Pours dark amber a bit clear with a small beige head. The aroma is light sweet pumpkin with the fall spices subtle but pleasant and present. The flavor is similar bringing light spice of nutmeg mostly and then big awesome cinnamon settling on the palate. The body is lighter but right on for the style. It got much better as the temperature went up.

LinusStick (2955) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Very great smelling beer. Strong on the spices with nutmeg and cinnamon filling the nose. Pour was a medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was good. A little thin but good. Strong on the pumpkin pie spices that, coupled with the aroma, made a great pairing in the beginning. The problem is the thin and watery finish. Had this been a slightly higher ABV it may have scored a little higher. Needs more substance and backbone, but not a bad run of the mill pumpkin beer.

ryanscourt (870) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Nice average pumpkin beer. Right amount of spices, malt body a little thin. Would drink again.

radagast83 (5387) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle at Crios. Poured a dark amber color, small white head. Aroma was nice baked pumpkin pie notes. Fresh pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. Flavor was light pumpkin pie. A bit heavy on the malt - it’s very sweet for what it is. If it was a bit more balanced in that realm, I think it’d have been better.

solidfunk (4912) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Not a whole lot going on here. Pours maroon with OK head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Some hibiscus and gourd. Not great. Bottle at crios thanks to radagast.

This poured an orange with a white head. Aroma was of lots of spice, light Vienna character. Flavor was similar, bland lager with mild off spices.
