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.

Bomber. Pours slightly hazy orange color with smallish white head. Aroma is mostly spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, with some biscuity malt background. Tastes mostly spicy, sweet caramel also with just a hint of pumpkin/squash/earthy notes. Not very pumpkin, but the spice profile is there. Good, but not great.

Aroma is very sweet. Appearance is burnt orange with little to no head. Taste starts sweet with a bitter finish. It’s almost as if a sweet pumpkin - ie Pumpking meets a more traditional & bitter pumpkin. Overall, a tasty brew and a nice effort from Heavy Seas.

Cybercat (5115) - Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Malty aroma has a firm overtone of pumpkin and cinnamon - very October indeed. It pours a slightly hazy coppery amber with a thin pale pumpkin-orange head, but the condition of the head may be an artifact of the pour. Lip-smacking malty flavor has firm tones of pumpkin and cinnamon with hints of cloves and fruit and a bit of an alcohol nip. Texture has above average body and is smooth with a subtle fizz, leaving an edgy, malty, pumpkin finish. Perfect for this time of year!

Poured a slightly red amber color with a thin off-white head that faded quickly. Aroma has lots of pumpkin and spices. Nutmeg and almonds. Taste is very creamy with lots of pumpkin and more nutmeg. Finish is a bit hoppy with more spices and some warming alcohol. Overall it’s slightly sweet, but the balance is still good. The finish is a little syrupy however. Overall a decent pumpkin beer.

750ml bottle split with some friends. A lot of pumpkin spice in the aroma, reminded me a lot of pumpkin cream pie, if such a thing exists. Compared to the BA version of this beer I’d probably say they’re just about equal.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Pours a clear orange/amber with a medium light tan head. Aroma has nice doughy notes, notable pumpkin, and just the right amount of spice. Flavor follows suit but adds caramel, a bit more spice, and a hint of booziness. Mouthfeel is oily with a boozy spiced finish that warms.

A decent pumpkin ale falls short of the pumking by Southern Tier IMO. A good pumkin palate will leave you satisfied.
