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 Mom’s pumpkin pie some serious competition. A fall favorite skillfully brewed by Foothills.

Maybe a bad pour/batch. But not a superstrong pumpkin ale. The elements were there, but just was not balanced well. Too much cinnamon too, and flat taste. I’ll pass over for better pumpkin options.

Just what you expect from a pumpkin ale. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. Pumpkin. Might be served in a glass with sugar on the rim.

smells of chai tea. tastes of chai tea / pumpkin latte. good spicing going on here. but watered down mouthfeel. this isn’t the greatest pumpkin beer, but it’s better than pumking lol.

12 oz. bottle. Pours ruby brown, with a thin head. The aroma is pumpkin and yams, brown sugar, cloves, and some light cinnamon. Very sweet, some mellow vegetal and spice notes. Medium body, sticky, and a little warming. This is a nice, understated pumpkin beer. Mellow spice and an easy flavor.

Fairly light for a pumpkin beer but this is good enough for the style. Some weird aftertastes

Overwhelming spice and underwhelming pumpkin. Might have been more tolerable a bit warmer on a cool fall evening- just doesn’t taste like spring. Pours a decent copper color with a small head (actually looked great). Nose is all spice. Too much nutmeg and a bit sharp with the ginger. A bit of an unpleasant sweetness as well. I prefer to have beer with a slice of pumpkin pie- rather than the two -in-one package as offered here.

Ugly BMC-esque gold pour w/zero heard or lace. Smells ok, some spices, pumpkins in the background. Tastes off. A kiss of tartness (wtf?!) then turns watery. Julie nailed it: tastes like a pumpkin Kolsch.

Wtf Foothills, I expect better from you guys.

Bottle. Nice fall color, orange-amber, with a thin head. The pumpkin aroma gets to the olfactory glands as soon as the cap’s off the bottle. The beer drinks with a nice balanced delivery of some gourd, cinnamon and spice. Decent. (#5322, 11/10/2013)

Tap. Amber with small head. Light, thin body, but spicing is well done with a lot of clove.
