Smells more pumpkin-y than it tastes. Not bad, but not what I expected. Also darker than I thought it would be. I guess if they’re going to go out of their way to mention how much great pumpkin flavor this has, it should probably have some pretty bold pumpkin flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2011 Rerate on 10/15/2011. The appearance is true to its style; it’s an orange color with a off-white head, which persists in the glass. Aroma of grains, pumpkin, spices such as nutmeg, a little bit of bread. Surprisingly weak flavor, notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. The finish is mainly pie spices, light resiny hoppiness. Not bad. Definitely not the best pumpkin ale out there.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear deep copper with 1-finger off-white head that dissipates quickly. Nose is pumpkin spice, malt. Medium palate that isn;t very complex, with nutmeggy, pumpkin spicy, and malt flavors. Not one of my favorite pumpkin ales, but not bad for the season.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of pumpkin, gentle spices. Flavor again with pumpkin, even gentler spices, mildly sweet, but quite dry at the finish too. Never overbearing, but always super tasty.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle, best by 12/26/2008. Pours a deep orange/brown with a thick. huge white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of baked pumpkin, light spices. Flavor is sweet, light pumpkin and spices. Pretty tasty, but relatively light in the pumpkin. Decent pumpkin, not my favorite.

ebowman (11) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Pours a beautiful translucent copper color, with a medium head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has notes of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg; smells very sweet. Taste is pumpkin (of course) with very nice balancing of the spice. Overall, this is a very good pumpkin ale.

very nice brew, it apper to have aged well but I have not had it fresh. Well spiced and smooth with a whiped cream and pumpkin profile.

carruthm (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2009 really solid pumpkin ale. A bit milder and more subtle than the Great Pumpkin but still captures pumpkin spices well.

clear orange with a lite head
strong pumpkin spice aroma
milder taste

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle. Cloudy amber with a white head. The nose is rather subtle, some pumpkin and nutmeg. Flavor has notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, caramel and earthy hops. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Not bad.

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Poured a redish orange color with small head and almost no lacing. Aroma was lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices. Flavor was very much like a punkin pie. Not a bad one nothing amazing.
