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.

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.

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.

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.

Overwhelming spice and underwhelming pumpkin. Might have been more tolerable a bit warmer on a cool fall evening- just doesnít 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.

smells of chai tea. tastes of chai tea / pumpkin latte. good spicing going on here. but watered down mouthfeel. this isnít the greatest pumpkin beer, but itís better than pumking lol.

On tap at Pangea in avon nc it is a cloudy golden color with a slight head. The aroma is pumpkin with cinnamon and clove The taste is light and spicy with flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg and pumpkin. Nicely done!

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

At the brewpub for $3 pints, and started out with this one. My first (and probably only) Pumpkin Ale of the season. Came out a deep dark orange, with a nice frothy cap. The nose is sweet with pumkin spice, nutmeg, cinnamon - not surprising. Slick feel. Sweet pumpkin, that isnít as artificial-tasting as I remember. The pumpkin is also a little more subtle, but in its place there is an overwhelming spice profile, that isnít all that refreshing. All-in-all though, itís not a bad autumn drink, but I couldnít see myself having any more than 1 of these at a time, or even more than 1 in a season for that matter.

A: Pumpkin. spice. cinnamon. A: looks ok. Brownish amber color. Little head. T: Tastes alright. A little weak. Pumpkin is hardly noticable. Lots of spice. Finish is dull. P: A little dull. Thin. Not bad... too spicy. Overall this is an ok beer. Pumpkin beers are always a little hit and miss... mostly miss. This is an alright easy drinking beer but nothing special.
