jcos (1670) - Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle on November 16th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a medium to dark orange.
Aroma: Aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg.
Taste: Pumpkin but not too sweet, faint bitterness.
Palate:Medium light body, quick finish.

Summary: 39 more to go to 1000. Figured I’d get on my way tonight. What is nice about this beer is that it has the pumpkin tastes but is not too sweet or overly spiced, which can be a problem with traditional pumpkin ales.

Bottle from Deguchiya. Rich spiciness, cinnamon, ginger bread, dark malt, pumpkin cake. Nice one, maybe more xmas-style but quite flavorful and enjoyable.

IPagan5 (106) - San Marcos, California, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Fruity gourde smell, wierd cloudy head, but not much carbonation. Flavor was pretty good on pumpkin side. It’s ok but do not buy a bunch.

WABeerFiend (320) - - JAN 17, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip on 08.17.14. A: Pumpkin pie. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Sweet smelling. A: Somewhat opaque caramel colored body. 1 finger head that recedes quickly. T: Pumpkin, spice and brown sugar. P: Smooth and watery. O: There wasn’t as much pumpkin flavor in this as there should have been. It tasted and felt very watered down. This wasn’t that great, but it was drinkable.

Soirée Pumpkin ale au Rattle ’n’ Hum NYC. En fût. Un liquide beige. Un nez simple d’épices et de vrai citrouille. Une bouche simple avec des épices et un fond de citrouille. Elle m’a semblé manqué une dimension.

kramer (5357) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear dark orange body with a small frothy off-white head. The nose is sweet malt and light spice of nutmeg and vanilla, rather subtle and pleasant. The flavor isn’t overly sweet or spiced, it’s very drinkable compared to many pumpkin beers. I think there’s a little vanilla in here that really mellows out things and works with the sweetness of the malt. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty good beer.

siennaemerson (11) - New York, USA - NOV 22, 2014
This beer lacks the intense spicing of some pumpkin ales and has a natrual pumpkin flavor (possibly a hint of allspice). It tastes like the pumpkin juice was squeezed out of the pumpkin for the purpose of this ale.

Very attractive deep red orange, fizzy one-finger head that vanishes completely. Fruity bouquet, but not exactly pumpkin, more orange-lemon. That should be a warning, because after an initial taste of fruit and spice, hops keep trying to push their pine-citrus profile over the pumpkin. This is like a novice’s idea of what a pumpkin ale should be after drinking only US IPAs. Gets better as it warms, and some actual pumpkin arrives. The finish is thankfully less bitter than the typical IPA, but the sour citrus notes remain. Not the worst, but with so many good pumpkin beers on the market _ including better ones from Elysian _ don’t waste your time.

31/10/14 Cask, a moderately dark reddish ale with a slim off-white head. Aroma, they is pumpkin, malts. Taste, pumpkin, sweetness, fruity, pear, minimal bitter finish. Different and it has an appeal.

snoworsummer (3131) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Draft at Red Star. Pours opaque murky copper with a creamy beige head. Tastes like sweet roasted pumpkin, cinnamon, sugar, cloves, squash, light alcohol. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like pumpkin cookies.

mighty_meadow (303) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 2, 2014
Pint in the Salt Cot (jdw) Lovely spicy fruit aroma and taste. Spiced orange finishing off with a pithy bitterness. Quite a thick almost oily feel. Very impressive.
