COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The classic style pumpkin beer that is perfect for fall and winter days. Cinnamon and Nutmeg are added at the finish of this brew and create the dominating flavors. Pumpkin is also added to the boil adding body and character to the beer. Medium maltiness with a low hop flavoring and the warming spices makes this beer a popular favorite.

Smells like pumpkin. Dark brown. Thin head. Gibbs of pumpkin but not much. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Not very good.

Pour out of growler bottle, thanks! Dark hazy orange-red pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of lots of vanilla, some slight sour fruit, caramel, toffee, hints of cinnamon, lots of ginger, lemon peel, some graham cracker as well. Taste is a mix of sweet pumpkin, nutmeg, slight cinnamon, earth, grass, finishing fairly sweet, slight sour with some fruit, pretty tasty but a bit odd.

seymour (1435) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Tasted on tap at the brewpub. It poured a clear, orangish-amber color with weak off-white head. Not very pumpkiny, actually, think more like strong pumpkin pie spices: nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, clove. Odd, sticky candy residual sweetness. Light-medium body, average carbonation, long-lasting spiced aftertaste. I don’t like heavily spiced beers to begin with, but this one was worse than most.

Sample at beerfest. Poured a amber, brown color with a smaller off white head. Aroma was brown sugar, molasses and cinnamon. Flavor was spices, pumpkin, bread, nutmeg and sugar. Very spicy finish. Just above average beer.

vyvvy (3992) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Sampled at Schlafly Fresh Hop fest (but far from a fresh hop beer) - Pours amber / copper with a beige head. The aroma has cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, amber ale malt and graham crackers. Medium body with light carbonation. The flavor is watery and subdued compared to the aroma, but basically has the same traits. The finish is spicy and has veggie aspects. Decent pumpkin ale.

On tap at the Ferguson Brewhouse. Served a hazy Copper color with a nice head that fades to good lacing. Aroma of nutmeg, spice, malt sweetness and a trace of pumpkin. Taste of nutmeg, spices, some pumpkin and a bit of malt sweetness. Has a slightly spicy finish. Fairly Medium body, smooth with good balance. Nice pumpkin ale, enjoyable for one or maybe two at the most. May I have another slice?

It poured an amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of light pumpkin, strong nutmeg and a hint of cinnamon. The flavor was lightly sweet with caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin spice with a crisp finish. A very good pumpkin ale.

Draft sample in a sampler tray at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma is big on brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, along with apples, vanilla, and a light vegetal note. Flavor follows suit mostly, big with brown sugar, cinnamon, apples, and nutmeg, with underlying caramel malts, vanilla, earth, and pumpkin. Started to remind me of a bowl of Apple Cinnamon Cheerios after warming for a while. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, chewy mouthfeel. Just a little too much of the sweetness and spice for me, but otherwise this is a fun, in-your-face pumpkin ale.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Pint at the brewpub. Medium brown in color with a smallish tan head of large bubbles. A delightful aroma of sweet cinnamon and nutmeg. Pumpkin was there but was not as prominent as the spice. Flavor was almost as sweet with more pumpkin. Nutmeg followed by that cinnamon. Some very soft hops in the finish. Liked it so much I bought a growler for an upcoming Halloween party. It will be a hit there.

Tasted 10/3/10. Pint from the Brewpub. Filtered with an amber hue. Finger width of bone white head. Aromas of vanilla and cinnamon with a mild clove note. Medium to full bodied with a great flavor. The pumpkin is prevalent and dominant with a great spiced palate to back it up. Flavors of cinnamon, ginger, clove and all spice. It’s all there and it’s melded wonderfully. Good medium malt roast. Finishes smooth with lingering spices. Decent effervescence that lingers with the spices into the finish. Solidly produced and a great palate. Well hidden abv. Fresh and tasty!
