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.

A nice not too strong nutmeg aroma. Flavor isn’t too heavy. The spices are present but very little heft. Might prefer a less spicier, heftier beer (at the moment). Overall, though, I’m not a bit pumpkin guy.

Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of allspice, clove, ginger, carmel and light pumpkin. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, cinnamon, allspice, clove and light pumpkin with a smooth lingering spiced finish.

AmEricanbrew (6608) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 9, 2009
Clear amber color with a white head. Malty sweet pumpkin pie spice aromas. Medium body. Lots of pumpkin pie spices in the flavor along with a malty sweet pie crust base.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Spicy chewy fresh pumpkin pie with caramel sauce nose. Brownish fiery orange color, thick creamy tan head. Nutty spicy sweetness, solid bitterness, good balance. Big carbonation, lighter medium body, has a spicy clove crisp finish—could this be a perfect “leaf raking” beer? Big spices, yet crisp, great beer, and an excellent pumpkin beer.

highibus (774) - Vail, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Pours a beautiful orange amber. Odd aroma but some nice spice and some pumpkin. Flavor is really nice light pumpkin flavor with good spicing. Not overdone. Very drinkable.

Tap @ Rattle n’ Hum. Pours a deep orange-amber with a small and quickly-dissipating white head. Aroma is heavy on the pumpkin and the traditional pumpkin pie spices (clove, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg). Taste is subtle pumpkin on the front into an EXPLOSION of pumpkin pie spices at the end that is almost too intense and crossing the line into medicinal. As the beer warmed up, the pumpkin became more prominent, and I noticed some sweet biscuit notes as well. Good - but not my favorite of the pumpkins.

Bottle [22oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a clear golden-orange with lots of tiny floaties and an average size diminishing white head. Nice pumpkiny aroma along with spices, caramel malt and sweet cream. Nice flavour too, an easy-drinkin’ pumpkin beer, almost like pumpkin pie. Medium bodied. Very nice and well done.
