I usually not the biggest fan of spice/herb/vegetable beers. This is the best one, and my new favorite Oktoberfest. The aroma is a warm fresh pumpkin pie. It pours a rich reddish brown hue. It has a really nice thick palate. It starts off with a sweet, caramel, cinnamon, rich pumpkin pie flavor. Then you are hit by a ton of malt. Finally you get a nice spicy nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, and pumpkin flavor.

Pours a light golden amber color. Aromas of pumpkin, clove, ginger, nutmeg. Smelled like pumpkin pie in a bottle, and I hate pumpkin pie. Tastes just like it smells, way to fruity and holiday spicey for me.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured hazy orange with a minimal off white head, no real lacing. Aroma of spices, pumpkin and malts. Taste is mostly spices, pumpkin is there but not the primary flavor there are also some malts. Decent not really the greatest.

Bottle--I wasnít expecting to rate this very high, but I was surprised, still itís just run of the mill. Gold to orange color with a large head with a lot of carbonation. The aroma was dominated by nutmeg and not much else. Spicy taste with pumpkin on the end with malt, too. A pleasant finish to keep you smiling. Appalachian Vinter.

HornyCopia Pumpkin Ale has a very thick, foamy, crackling off-white head, a yellow-gold-orange appearance, with bubble streams and powdery sediment evident throughout. Lacing is light and splotchy. The aroma is strong on spices (white pepper & cinammon), with underlying pumpkin pulp and malt. Taste is similar, with a noted peppery aspect. Mouthfeel is medium, and HornyCopia finishes crisp and refreshing, with the alcohol not present. RJT

Draft at Old Mill. Pours hazy amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like dry spices, dry roasted pumpkin, vegetable, and light pie sweetness. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells like sweet pumpkin pie, dry spices, and roasted vegetable.

sonnycheeba (5077) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Tap. Pours mostly clear gold with thin, fizzy head. Aroma is pumpkin, toasted malts, nutmeg, light floral notes, and light nuttiness. Flavor is dry malts, heavy spice that further dries things out, light squash/pumpkin notes, and faint woody bitterness. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

LetsGoState (818) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Aroma isnít strong with some spices. Taste is a blend of pumpkin and spice. Overall not the greatest pumpkin ale, but not the worst.

This is a bland beer w/ a bunch of spices or spice flavorings dumped in. Spice fans might like it but beer fans will probably not. It is a cloudy orange color and has a head of white, fine bubbles. It smells entirely of spice w/ nothing in particular popping out, just a mix of you standard cinnamon and pie spice. This is a medium bodied but a lack of flavor makes this come across as a bit watery. The carbonation is fine bubbled and prickly. There is a bit of malt flavor in the form of simple sweetness and it finishes a touch on the bitter side but this is very much a spice dominated brew w/ little more to offer. I guess if you are just dying for a spice beer, this will do. Otherwise, no matter where you are, there are certainly better options for beer fans.

Nice subtle pumpkin spice. I like that it was smooth and drinkable and not heavily or overpowering ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I read reviews here standing at the store and decided to try. I love pumpkin beers, not necessarily the sweet pumpkin pie varieties though. This one has the perfect amount of bitterness as described in so many reviews. Very good if you like that. Not too spicy, not too sweet. Iíll have it again if they still have it.
