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.

Light orange with a tan-ish head. Nutmeg, cinnamon, some light pumpkin, light biscuit and caramel malts. A decent amount of, but not cloyingly sweet, candied malt. Probably the same ingredients as many other pumpkin beers but this one has a complexity, depth, and overall quality feel to it that many lack. Great beer.

Thanks James (Mr. Tampa Pourhouse). Bomber pours clear copper with off white head. The aroma has nice fresh and organic smelling pumpkin pie and graham cracker to go along with a modest amount of cinnamon and faint nutmeg spices. The taste is pretty smooth with notes of sweet pumpkin, a nice layer of graham cracker and growing sharp spicy notes. To midway it picks up a sense of brown sugar and malty sweetness. Well done pumpkin.

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.

Nimrod979 (206) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice translucent orange with an average bubbly white head. Spicy pumpkin aromas. Sweet nutmeg aromas. Big malty flavors at first. Spicy cinnamon, clove and pumpkin flavors. And a bit of nutty sweetness before washing down with a slight bit of bitter hoppiness to it. Also a slight tinge of alcohol gives it a little heat to add to the spice. Medium bodied. with a creamy and soft texture. A little watery diminishes the finish but a pretty solid pumpkin ale. A little unique with a more hoppy finish than you would really expect in a pumpkin beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2011
One of the better pumpkin beers I have had in quite a while. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a medium sized orange-white head that left good lacing. The aroma was moderately strong sweet caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The flavor was strong sweet caramel, cinnamon sugar, nutmeg and clove. There was a lightly boozy undertone. The finish was long with cinnamon sugar, caramel and nutmeg lingering. Fairly full bodied. Well done.

Poured a clear copper with a two finger white head. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Taste is a slightly boozey version of the smell (not a bad thing) with a bittersweet finish. Feels medium bodied with a creamy texture. I dig it.

22oz bomber poured in snifter. Hazy burnt orange color with thin, creamy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is full of cream, toasty/bready notes, and caramel. Taste is great with pumpkin, nutmeg, and other spices before giving way to a creamy dry finish. Boozey all the way through and nice on the palate too. Good beer.
