COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp, dry ale uses cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger brewed with real pumpkin and a blend of North American and British malts to give Momís pumpkin pie some serious competition. A fall favorite skillfully brewed by Foothills.

Pours a clear, muted orange with hardly any head. The aroma is bright and sweet. Lots of nutmeg and pumpkin. Itís all vaguely synthetic smelling, but it doesnít smell bad at all. Kiinda like a pumpkin scented candle. The flavor is rich and slightly sweet. More of that pumpkin flavor that seems artificial but not unpleasant. I wonít have another one, but I didnít mind this.

Pumpkin and spice are the primary aromas. Pours a clear amber with a thin lasting white head and no lacing. The tastes is spice dominate. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice with hints of pumpkin. Medium-light body with crisp carbonation. Overall, ok but I have had more balanced pumpkin ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: Pumpkin is a little obscured by nutmeg, ginger and clove, but the spices are very pleasant. Appearance: Still copper body with a ring of bone coloured head. Flavor: Really quite gingery and sharp; flavors seem at war instead of in harmony. The ginger wins. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: An uneven showing. Thanks to my friend Robert for bring a bottle back from his travels.

HighlanderOne (1016) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Poured from bottle. Aroma of overripe pumpkin and spice. Cider colored, flat. Decent pumpkin flavor with nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. Quite under carbonated. Good flavor but may have been old

zizzybalubba (1448) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2013
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Pours yellowish-orange with a quick white head. Roasted pumpkin with light pumpkin pie spices on the nose. Good pumpkin flavor with muted cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and allspice. Finishes clean with only traces of the spices clinging to the palate. One of the better pumpkin beers I have tried.

HopHead3075 (1) - - OCT 13, 2013 does not count
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma took me by surprise because it came off a little more floral than pumpkin. Appearance, poured a nice copper color with minimal head. Taste is slightly pumpkin. Even the spice is pretty insignificant. I like the lighter mouthfeel, but the flavor is a little lacking. I like that is not overly sweet life a lot of pumpkin beers, but it leaves a little too be desired in full pumpkin flavor. Overall, I would drink it again, but itís not my go-to fall seasonal.

Frigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours light amber with small beige head. Nice pumpkin aroma, medium/light body, low carbonation, and thin small bubble lacing. Taste earthy, pumpkin, nutmeg, ginger, and a hint of cinnamon. Good pumpkin beer.
