On tap at Stapleton Tap House last November. Pours copper with small head and lace. Light pumpkin & malt aroma. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of amber malts, pumpkin pie including the nutmeg and other spices. Overall tasty with significant but not overwhelming pumpkin pie flavors

Pint can. Good pumpkin pie aroma with pumpkin and nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and allspice. Pours orange colored with a nearly nonexistent white head with no retention or lacing. Starts with sweet pumpkin upfront as well as a bit honey sweetness as well. Finishes smooth with the aforementioned spices coming through and overtaking the other flavors, but not in a bad way. Excellent pumpkin that balances the pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavors nicely.

Tall Can. Pours orange with white frothy head. Smells very clovey, exactly like pumpkin pie. Tastes very very spicy- cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, sweet, really good! A really well done pumpkin beer!

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 This is exactly what a pumpkin ale should taste like. I practically inhaled it. Fresh and tasty pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg spice. There's a nice marriage between the spices and some underlying hops in this brew. Earthy too. I like to imagine that this is how George Washington brewed the stuff. Very nice.

nuts, bread, citrus, floral, clove, amber, orange, hazy, frothy, light sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, lively. Overall very pleasant and satisfying. Not overly spice driven style. It conforms to their model of lighter styles and great drinkability

The pour from the can is clean, burnt orange in color with a white head that quickly dissipates. The Aroma is clove, cinnamon and nutmeg with a sweet pumpkin note in the back. For a Pumpkin the aroma and appearance are great. The taste is sweet at the start, then clearly pumpkin and spice. The finish still communicates pumpkin but has a slight bitter finish to complete the ale. Overall it is a good ’harvest’ showing, bringing the pumpkin to the forefront of the ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a lite orange with a little head and no lacing. Very aromatic pumpkin pie spices. Doubt there’s any pumpkin in there. Tastes like freshly baked pumpkin pie. Nice C-hop finnish. Only drawbacks are: served way too cold, and not enough body.

Draft in Leadville. Pours opaque orange copper with a fizzy bubbly beige head. Tastes like roasted pumpkin, dry cinnamon, light vanilla, toasted malt, light vegetable. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like faint cinnamon, sweet roasted pumpkin, light vegetable, and caramel malt.
