Bottled Pumpkin Pie Soul - Very impressive drink. Silky smooth, creamy caramel malt base with a lot of subtle autumn spices, definetly heavy with the nutmeg and cinnamon. The malt is so smooth and serves as a great vehicle for the spices and creamy, pumpkin base. A little too much vegetablely essence in the finish but its light and easily forgettable with everything else going on in it. I have to emphasize that this ale does this style correct by not over spicing and undermalting. Definetly on-par with the Dogfish Head version, which is getting hard to come by this year.

SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2007
Bottle: Pours a orange bronze color. Semi clear but with some slight haze. 2 finger white head. Aroma of pumpkin veg and light pumpkin spice and malt. Flavor is malty and pumpkiny, lite cinnamon and nutmeg flavors, malty and medium bodied but with a deceivingly light and crisp finish. One of the more real pumpkiny beers that doesnt rely on the spices. Very easy drinking.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Pours amber with a thin white head. Smells of intense pumpkin pie spices and caramel. Tastes spicey with some dough and hints of pumpkin. Not as over the top as Great Pumpkin but still good.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Pours darker amber/orange with a soft cream head. Spicy and rich pumpkin pie flavor. A great beer for a cool fall afternoon or to pair with some afterdinner treat. The beer is balanced out well, not overly sweet, and stays lighter on the palate. The spices blend well to let the pumpkin pie flavor linger in the aftertaste.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2007
On tap at Capital Hill Brewery. Nice amber color. Spiced aroma. Malty with the subtle spices in the background. This would be great with pumpkin soup. Not bad at all.

CapFlu (4762) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival 2007 in Victoria on September 7th, 2007. Good nutmeg nose. Flavour of nicely mixed pumpkin and nutmeg. Smells fantastic but tasted pretty average.

The Dan Journal #42. Sampled 10/22/06. Concluding the Pumpkin beer aspect of the tasting. Hazy with a deep copper hue. Toasty bready nose with little spice. Nuances of vanilla cinnamon and ginger. Similar flavors. Medium bodied. Lively and nice. Short lived finish. Nice melding of the spices. This took the bronze.

[22oz Bomber - Rocky Top Homebrew Shop] A great overall color deep amber orange with a light head. The aroma was sweet smelling with the spices of pumpkin pie. This was a good subtle spiced beer wthat was easy and great to drink. This was a great beer.

Copper with a large creamy head. Lots of nutmeg and ginger in the nose and in the flavour. Lots of malts are backing this one up throughout and there is a lot of spice carrying this one right though the finish. I still have not had a pumpkin ale that tastes like creamy pumpkin pie but this one surely has the spices right.
