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.

Pint on tap. Nice pie spice aroma with light baked pumpkin. Taste is the same, with a nice balance between the spices and pumpkin and some leafy hop. Light-medium body has average carbonation and is well balanced. Well served pumpkin that you could easily have more than one of since its not over-spiced like so many are.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small head on it. Nose has your typical pumpkin spice palate, though I find the aroma to be particularly intense. Taste is pretty well balanced, though the spices dominate any flavor. OK, but nothing special.

jsquire (3423) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2013
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.

From a 12 bottle served in Buxton NC. Pumpkin pie spice aroma. Pours orange gold with an off white head. Flavors of cinnamon, cloves and allspice with a hint of ginger. Malty with a crisp dry finish.

rumproasts (2847) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Tap. Amber with small head. Light, thin body, but spicing is well done with a lot of clove.

Shag (2598) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Amber color with a white head. Aroma contains caramel, cinnamon, allspices. Think pumpkin flavored stuff. Very similar to an amber ale without the spice. Easy drinking and not overdone on spice.

ross (2078) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2013
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.

chinchill (1776) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2013
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.

weihenweizen (1686) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2013
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.
