Pours a clear copper, with a soapy, well-sustained head - the aroma is a nice mixture of nutmeg, biscuity, pie-crust-like malt, cinnamon, and fairly pronounced pumpkin character - the flavor is like a thinner version of the aroma - mostly doughy, with some light coppery, metallic character, a little pumpkin and some vegetal qualities, and very faint nutmeg - the flavor is a little bit of a letdown after the aroma, but this is fairly refreshing, albeit forgettable.

blipp (5857) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber orange with an off white head. The aroma has pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. The flavor is similar to the aroma, but a little less spicy and with the pumpkin a little more pronounced. Pretty good.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a creamy off-white head. Nose is pumpkin pie - pumpkin, heavy on the nutmeg and cinnamon, sweet caramel malt. Taste a nice sweet malt body up front, followed by a dry, spicy, pumpkin-filled finish, packed with nutmeg and cinnamon. Slight floral hop not on the finish to balance. Light body and moderate to light carbonation. Really nice go for the style.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Draft at Blind Tiger, with Reuben & Jen, as part of their pumpkin Promo. 15 lines i believe. All sampled as 5oz pours. Amber body pumpkin, cinnamon, spices. One of the best of the night.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2008
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and pumpkin pie. Poured amber in color with a small, rocky, off-white head that disappeared. Clear. Sparkling. Some tiny particles throughout. Small lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of pumpkin, resin, hops, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and toasted malts. Medium body. Chalky texture. Pumpkin, cardboard, spice finish.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Bottle: Pours copper with good clarity and a fading light tan head. The aroma is fairly promising. Has some sweet pumpkin presence and isn’t overly spiced. Some allspice, mild cinnamon, evident clove, and creamy pumpkin pie innards. Fairly light body. The flavor has way less character than the aroma. Upfront it has succinct and mild spice notes of clove, some butter, and very mild suggestions of pumpkin. The finish is very vacant and watery with only a note of lightly toasted malt and a cinnamon touch. Flavor is a big let down.

500ml bottle. Burnt, stained-glass orange color, filtered. Big nutmeg and cinnamon Heavily spiced, full of pumpkin pie flavor. Medium-bodied, not overly thick. Mellow, enjoyable stuff.

boFNjackson (4099) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Tap @ Belmont Station... Poured a burnt orange with a frothy, white head. Aroma was spicy with cinnamon, nutmeg and a little pumpkin. Really smooth on the palate with sweet pumpkin pie flavors that weren’t overwhelming. The rest of the flavors matched the aroma pretty well. Some bread-like malt notes towards the finish.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Pours light amber-orange. Smells like a subdued pumpkin pie. Lots of pumpkin flavor with a nice bit of spice to balance. Medium/full bodied with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Pretty solid pumpkin ale overall.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Dense dark amber hue, no head present. Big sweet spices in the nose: pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, brown sugar, a slight tinge of dark fruits and malts. Taste is wonderful, pumpkin pie with graham cracker crust, sweet fall spices, brown sugar and molasses, toast malts, finishes sweet. Palate is medium-full, light and smooth texture, high carbonation. A super spiced beer full of flavor, sweetness can be a bit overpowering and this one is enjoyed in smaller quantities.
