Bottle. Dark hazy copper with a thin white head. Aroma is pumpkin with lots of cinnamon and a hint of ginger. Taste follows and adds a touch of clove. Medium creamy mouthfeel and light carb. Pretty good.

"this one, though i have lots of respect for Elysian, was a huge surprise. started with this and by the end of the night, it was still my clear favorite, and probably the best pumpkin beer i’ve ever had (at the time). aroma was simply magnificent. if you like pumpkin, this is it! get it fresh. THE most natural pumpkin aroma that kept my nose returning to it all night. lighter abv but full flavored, smooth, medium bodied. spices were not overdone and there was an additional toasted character that fit the beer well. biggest surprise in a while. for my money - kicked pumking’s butt!! 11/10-just as nice on tap. best beer there! 10/11-almost as nice. almost.

Pours a cloudy orangish gold, with white head. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, and cloves. Taste is the same. Fairly drinkable. The overall pumpkin and spice flavor is a little strong for me. Still, I enjoyed it overall. Thumbs up.

Decent seasonal. I was expecting something more. The few beers I’ve had from this brewer were very good. But this fell a little short for me. Worth a try.

Hazy brown with tan head. Aroma I cinnamon and cloves. Taste of pumpkin, caramel malt and spices (cinnamon allspice cloves ). Heavy on the spices but not bad (one is enough though). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not my favorite pumpkin ale. FAR too much pumpkin in it for my taste, almost made it a bit too sweet for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Snallygaster 2014. Poured a clear brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma was nice cinnamon, pumpkin pie, nutmeg, etc. Flavor was nice cinnamon, graham cracker, pumpkin. Delicious.

More like gingerbread than a pumpkin beer. Kind of sweet. I’m finally dragged into the pumpkin beers here. Tap at Snallygaster.

Bottle. Really nice pumpkin spice aroma, not quite delivered in the flavour. Lighter body with a decent pumpkin and spice flavour. Not incredible.
