Bottle. Clear orange beer with very thin head. Lots of perfumy aroma, heavy cloves and nutmeg -- a little too much. More released in the taste. Overall okay, but too much of the spice to be great.

Clear amber color with a frothy off white head. Big spicy nose with nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Soft mouth feel. Lots of dusty spice, with nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon with some coarse bread underneath. If you like spiced seasonals then this is the beer for you.

Undated 12 oz bottle from Foothills Brewing. Very good reason to believe this is a 2013 vintage. ABV listed as 5.3% with IBU = 5.2. Lower ABV and flavor strength than the Terrapin Pumpkinfest that proceeded it, but it has very similar spicing; both featuring nutmeg, clove, ginger and cinnamon.

draft poured medium to dark orange with white head. the aroma of spices, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice dominate. the flavor is the same plus you get some pumpkin flavor on the back end. not a bad pumpkin beer but just overloaded with spices which mute the pumpkin flavor.

Purchased on vacation at Atlantic Beach, NC 2013. Pumpkin spice clove scent, lacking appearance due to little head, lighter body crisp feel, with a pumpkin nutmeg fronted taste some ginger sneaking in on the back end. Overall, a decent pumpkin.

On tap at Foothills. Orange colored pour with a white head. Spicy smell, full of nutmeg and cinnamon. Smooth and pretty easy to drink - big amount of spice comes through but its not overwhelming. Lively and good - much better than the previous batch from the old Carolina brewery.

Bottle:   Amberish, a bit dirty, fine sediment floats about, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Nose of cinnamon and apple, some clove as well.   Spicy on the tongue, cinnamon, nutmeg, the aformentioned clove (a bit stronger here), with a touch of ginger (just a touch).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate... could stand to be a touch chewier tho.   Finishes very spicy, they linger long past the finish.   Mild to moderate sweetness, provides the right balance.   Nice example of a pumpkin ale, and what I look forward to during the Autumn months.

Nope. Regular pumpkin, coriander and nutmeg. Just not a great balance and kind of watery

A solid, balanced spiced ale. This is more about the spices (dominant) then the pumpkin (secondary) flavors. Smooth, easy drinking, Glad to see this being brewed back in NC by people who really love making beer.
