Bottle. Aroma of standard but nice pumpkin spices, sweet malt more than sweet pumpkin. Flavor continues to have a nice spice profile, but the sweet malt character becomes increasingly cloying. Not a big fan.

pours clear orange with light white head. Aroma of a typical pumpkin ale. Flavor has the standard cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, etc. Very pleasing pumpkin ale perfect for the autumn season.

22oz bottle from Blacklick Wine & Spirits. Clear amber pour with a thin beige head. Fantastic aroma of cinnamon, allspice, ginger, nutmeg and malt. Flavor echoes that, but is a bit thinner than expected. Don’t get me wrong it tastes amazing, but a bit of a letdown after the aroma. Still another awesome beer from this brewery.

bright orange with quickly dissapating white head. nice spicy cinnamon and clove nose. some cinnamon spice to the bitterness with some herbal spice that may be ginger derived or hop. the finish has a tinge of alcohol that adds depth. overall, the flavor is unique, kind of convoluted and a bit soda-like, but worthwhile

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2010 22oz bomber 10/4/09 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a clear orangish golden with a small ring for a head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Taste of the same with a bit of alcohol coming through. This medium bodied brew is not bad. Wish the pumpkin aroma matched the taste and it could hide the ABV a little better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells of pumkin pie and notes of clove and nutmeg, aroma is predominantly one dimensional though. I really want to like this beer, but the first sip tasted strange. Flavor obviously consists of pumpkin and there are notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and almost an apple juice flavor. I gave the appearance a 2 which is rare for me, most beers that I rate get an automatic 3 atleast. However this beer lacked any sort of head, no matter how vigarous the pour. It also appears almost still in the glass.

22oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear amber color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of cinnamon, pumpkin, and nutty. Tastes of cinnamon, pumpkin, vanilla, and caramel. Aclohol content overall well hidden.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06.
Poured clear dark orange color with an average white frothy head that was mostly diminished with fair lacing. Solid spicy pumpkin pie aroma. Moderate body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium pumpkin spicy sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
Average seasonal beer.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a very small ring of white head. Aroma of pumpkin spices (mostly lots of ginger, pepper, clove, nutmeg). Flavor is equally spicy with only a touch of pumpkin pie crust. On the sweet side. Overall, it just isn’t very tasty nor very pumpkin-y. Bleh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pumpkin beer is one of my favorite things about fall, and this is a really good one. Southern Tier Pumking is my favorite, but this beer was also quite good. It poured an orange color with a huge white head. Aroma is very spicy and pumpkin-pie like. Flavor was even sweeter and very full-bodied; spicy (cinammon, nutmeg, etc) with some smokey pumpkin flavor also. Mouthfeel was rich and full.
This was really good.
I bought this at Blacklick Liquor in on Broad St near Reynoldsburg, OH.
