COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When Fall rolls around, so does Jack. Provided he stays away from marauding trick-or-treaters, this bright orange gourd-like squash from the genus curcubita (Thanks Wikipedia!) finds his way into the mash of this Flat12 seasonal pale ale. A special blend of Indian(a) spices and pumpkin shine through just enough to complement this slightly sweet and malty tribute to the season of hayrides and bonfires. Flat out fantastic.

Pour on tap at the brewery, on nitro, slightly hazy yellow with white head, aroma brought notes of pumpkin, biscuit, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Taste is huge spice, lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, clove, some slight hints of yeast, pumpkin, but dominated by spice.

ContemplateBeer (1581) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 27, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2014 Aroma: A can of nutmeg being shoved into your nose by the zombie looking fellow on the front of the label. Nutmeg. More nutmeg. Appearance: Cloudy copper body, hugely over carbonated leading to a mess of sticky lacing all over the glass. Flavor: See "Aroma." Palate: Full body, sticky texture, fizzy carbonation, long finish to prolong the pain. Overall: Amateurish trash.

hotstuff (4274) - Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Rated on 10-28-2014 (Bottle) This beer pours a huge foamy head that mostly diminishes, hazy golden body, fast rising, very little carbonation, and a good amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is pumpkin, sweet and malt. The flavor is lightly bitter, sweet, pumpkin, and spice. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a good dose of pumpkin. A bit too much for my liking and I like pumpkin. It also has a light lingering pumpkin aftertaste.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 28, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of almost all foam bright white colored bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty and pumpkin. The mild citrus mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish herbal aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of pumpkin mild hops fruity and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Pours a gold amber, loads of carbonation and a thin cream head. Spiced pumpkin aroma. Strong clove flavor with a little pumpkin, into cinnamon /nutmeg. Sticky mouthfeel.

nearbeer (3845) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Couple of pints on tap. Clear orange with a film of bubbles. Aroma of squash, caramel and some earthy spices. Tastes of the same with some resin, light pepper and wheat toast. Light-medium body is balanced and has smooth, medium carbonation. Like the subtlety of the spices that lets the pumpkin come through.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Floback (528) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2014
12-ounce bottle from Crown Liquors. Pours a surprisingly light-colored dark lager body with a thumbnail of frothy head that has good retention. Nice aroma of spices, especially nutmeg. Plenty more of the spice rack in the flavor: clove, subtle cinnamon, a bitter finish. Medium body and soft/medium carbonation. Certainly not my favorite representative of the style, but a decent brew.

rondphoto (2288) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - SEP 13, 2014
taster @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber, rim head and tiny dots of lace. Taste is light malt peppered with pumpkin spices. No real bittering at the end; the spices just drift away. Somewhat interesting, but lacks complexity and balance.

wlajwl (4058) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Aroma is pumpkin, spices and cinnamon. The flavor is spices, cinnamon, pumpkins, citrus, very mild vegetables and a tart/tangy/bitter finish.

light in color. Thin head. Light bodies with pretty noticeable pumpkin with subtle spice. Compared to other pumpkin beers this falls in the middle for me.
