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.

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.

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.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Poured a deep chestnut amberish body with a wispy off-white head. Nose of pumpkin spice and malts with a zesty hops character. Tingly nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon hints. Crisp, creamy, robust, toasty, and superbly balanced. Yum!

JoeMcPhee (8466) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2008
Tap at Ginger Man. Nice orange-amber colour with a creamy white head. Lightly spicy pumpkin pie character. Light clove and allspice over a lightly toasty malt base. Flavour is unfortunately very watery. A bit of light toast and limpid pie spice. I know these guys can do better than this. As it warms, it gets a bit better, but it’s still not good.

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 (7876) - 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 (3497) - 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.
