ReggieDunlap (2931) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2010
pours a deep caramel/brown color...slightly opaque...with a medium tan head...lively looking. aroma has hints of allspice and nutmeg...also an earthy, wheaty aroma...definitely reminds me of the fall (autumnal aroma?) flavor hints at pumpkin up front but is dominated by spices...not muddled or overly aggressive though. finish is much like a wiezenbock with some clove and an earthy dryness...hint of alcohol. lively mouthfeel is not as heavy as expected. pretty good...reminds me of riverhorse hipp-o-lantern.

Medium body with hints of all seasonal Flavors but not overpowering. Dryish finish that ends nicely.

HopBackDoc (473) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Poured a copper color with small off-white head. Some nice aromas of spice and pumpkin. Flavor was malty rich with pumpkin, but not overpowering. Spices were evident and complimentary to the pumpkin while leaving a bit of a dry finish to a mildly sweet brew. Very enjoyable!

jmm635 (831) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Amber in color, white head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin. Flavor was actually maltier than expected but still leans toward the pumpkin flavors. Late hop bitterness.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle Cork topped bomber Pours a cloudy amber with a thin off white head. The head deminishes quickly, and laces sparcely. Aroma is of spice, pumpkin, cloves, and nutmeg. Has a good carbonation. the flavor starts off strong and then the spices settle in. Kind of has 2 phases. Has a medium body. The texture is thick. Has a decent finish and a spicy aftertaste. Had some good pumpkinsd but this one misses for me. Has potential but not just right.

bhensonb (10361) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 2, 2010
750 c&c from Oak Tree. Aroma is malty with a lot of pie spice things - nutmeg might stand out. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is very pie spice. Nutmeg lingers as the liquid leaves. There are other spice aspects, but I’m not good at diferentiation. More enjoyable than many pumpkin ales.

Standard pumpkin aroma with standard nutmeg. Taste is the same with earthy vegetal pumpkin sourness. $6/12oz

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep autumn amber color with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of nutmeg, pumpkin spice and nuts. Taste of pumpkin, nutmeg and light cinnamon. Nice brew.

ben4321 (3575) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Location: 750 ml bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 9/29/10

Aroma: The nose has a good amount of spice: nutmeg, pumpkin, ginger, and some clove
Appearance: It pours a hazy brownish-orange color with a creamy tan head atop it
Flavor: The flavor is pretty spicy as well, yeasty, a nice, fairly typical pumpkin flavor
Palate: This medium bodied beer has a pretty smooth feel to go along with the long spicy duration
Overall Impression: I would say that this one is a pretty good pumpkin beer. It isn’t the best one I’ve ever had, but I did enjoy drinking it. I’m a big fan of this style, so I tend to score them higher then others do, but I score them based on my taste, and I like them a lot. The flavor was pretty good, the booze was decently well-hidden, and the quality is there. Enjoyable stuff.

ScoWRee (366) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Pours a deep amber color, like an Iced Tea, with a thick off white foamy head. Aroma hits you when you open the bottle, Spicy clove and pumpkin. Tastes like liquid pumpkin pie. Not a Pumpkin Ale fan but, this isn’t bad.
