22 oz bottle. King of the Pumpkin Beers? I think so. After Blue Moonís, Jackís (Michelob), and Dogfish Head, this oneís the best. It has all the best attributes of pumpkin beer (which Iíve already mentioned in the previous reviews), but itís better; more like tasting an actual pumpkin pie than a beer with pumpkin pie flavoring, more robust, more flavorful. Itís GREAT............................................. charlie brown (lame joke).

Good not great, not enough pumpkin or pumpkin spices. Main flavor was licorice , not a fan. In any case a unique beer and good holiday beer, but not so much for a true pumpkin beer.

This reddish amber ale poured with a large fluffy beige head and a pumpkin pie aroma. There is a somewhat harsh vegetable flavor heavily laced with various spices atop a pretty good caramel malt base. A nice theme beer for Halloween and Thanksgiving, but not especially tasty.

Iím not the biggest pumpkin beer fan, but this one is pretty damn good. It has quite a bit of pumpkin and spice, but the hop bitterness somehow balances things out. Toasty malts allow the aromas and spices to take the stage. Nice and wafty aromas of pumpkin pie, allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Ginger is well placed, in the background. Definitely one of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had.

On tap at City Beer in SF. Cloudy dark amber-brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is decent with good pumpkin spices, pumpkin, and sweet malt. Flavor is not bad but a little harsh. Lots of spices - cinnamon and nutmeg stand out. Also some pumpkin and caramel and roasted malt. Could use a little better malt balance, but itís still better than most pumpkin ales. A little astringent on the palate with medium body and some spicy zing. Above average overall.

Very solid pumpkin ale. Had a pint last night at the Manchester Pub in NYC. Pours a slightly cloudy, dark orange with a light and creamy head. Aroma of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and pumpkin. Flavor is strong on the clove and nutmeg with less of a pumpkin presence until the finish. Very spicy. Nice, clean finish with a rich, mildly sweet pumpkin aftertaste.

Pours slightly cloudy deep caramel with a finger thick cream colored head.Nice clove, slice and pumpkin nose. Also decent cinnamon present. Flavor is right on with the nose with a really good malty and pumpkin finish. A bit creamy as well.
