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.

neepsntatties (1749) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Colour... dark amber with a thick frothy head. Nose... no pumpkin that I can detect but plenty o’ pie spice! Palate...spices galore, up front, with ginger allspice and clove really coming through! No pumpkin. Once it got past mid palate, most of the spice had disappeared and it had a quick finish. A bit watery as far as mouth feel, but still a nicely spiced autumnal quaffer!

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Pours a dark golden amber/copper color with some hazy golden orange hues when held to a light source and a one finger off-white frothy head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Nice spicy pumpkin pie aroma with hints of clove, brown sugar, cinnamon, pureed pumpkin, nutmeg and a nice caramel malt. Kind of smells like liquid pumpkin pie with very subtle hops. Very spicy up front with a lot of cloves, cinnamon and brown sugar with a medium creamy malt backbone and some nice pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, subtle hops and ginger in the dry finish. Alcohol is well-hidden and pretty much undetectable. This beer is slightly watered down with a lot of the pumpkin pie notes coming through in the aftertaste.

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2009
Pours deep, burnt amber-orange with a slender tan head. Aroma is all pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cloves, earthy, nutted and bready, late cinnamon and ginger. Flavor is a lovely blend blend of the smells along with roasted malt and an ascetic quality, with pumpkin appearing in the finish. In the mouth, this is velvety and chewy. Subdued, not boastful, but still complex. Very nice.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Pours an orange amber with a thin beige head. Aromas common to a pumpkin pie--cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. The clove in particular stands out. The ginger comes through in the taste and the pumpkin lingers.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Pours a mahogany brown. Aroma is mildly spicy, . The flavor reminds me a lot of a pumpkin bread or muffin. It’s medium bodied, malty with a lot of pumpkin and nutmeg. Has a very definite fall holiday feel to it and is the best pumpkin beer I’ve tried thus far.

keepersj12 (3058) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2009
This one is different than most of the style in that the aroma is mostly malt and bread. It pours amber with a small head. The flavor is very nice with the pumpkin being dominate. The pumpkin pie spices remain in the background. Nice finish. Very good.

hopheadfett (50) - Oak Ridge, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy amber, small head, good lace. Nose is intense pumpkin, yeast, spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice). Taste is big pumpkin, slight sour acidic finish, with a noticeable spice that coats the mouth. Light body, normal carbonation. Overall a delicious pumpkin ale, not as spicy as I’d like, but overall, fun.
