COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The secret is in the 2.5 pounds of spice per barrel for this fall brew. We add the pumpkin during the mash at precisely the right time to create just the perfect balance of malt, hops, pumpkin and spice.

Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Pours a nice orange with adequate head. Some nutmeg and spice on the nose. Taste is bitter, roasted, almost burnt tasting and a little pumpkin and spice. Tastes like a brown ale with some spices, less evocative of the season than most fall seasonals and not as pumpkin sweet as some people like their pumpkin beers.

Pours orange with medium head. All I can smell here is nutmeg. Flavor follows with unbearable nutmeg that takes my breath away. This was a drain pour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crazyvin (1991) - New York, USA - OCT 13, 2012
A nice orange amber body with a white head that had great retention and some lace. Aroma had a good caramel malt base upfront. Notes from pumpkin and spices followed with nutmeg really sticking out the most a slight sweetness and some alcohol. Flavor had a little more sweetness the I expected. It wasn’t overly sweet in any way. A nice spice note with the nutmeg being dominate pumpkin was a nice bitter sweet accompaniment to the spice.

Meh. Nothing special. Basic ale with a light touch of pumpkin. Not impressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to tulip. Looks good; a transparent burnt-orange with off-white head. Smells solid; pumpkin and appropriate spices. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid.

Tap. Amber with one finger head. Sweet with lots of pumpkin and spice. Slight alcohol warmth.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Tap at Barcade: Pours a copper amber with a off white head. Sweet aroma. Lots of vanilla and clove notes. Medium carbonation with a firm spiciness in the flavor. Some clove, nutmeg and vanilla. Relatively quick finish. Not bad, one dimensional.

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. Bleh. Pours a slightly darker amber color with a moderate head. Too spicy and "pumpkiny" for my tastes. I like these a bit more muted.

Really liked this one, my as malty as most pumpkin brews. The aroma isn't too impressive but the pumpkin flavor is present from start to finish. A little lighter in color and taste which works well. Nice and balanced ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
