Very pungent aroma of cloves and allspice. Hints of cinnamon. Slight sour pumpkin taste. Easy to drink. Not the best pumpkin beer but close.

Pours with little foam, but very carbonated. Aroma of nutmeg and perhaps allspice. Tastes delicious; very strong pumpkin pie but not pumpkin; flavors are all pie crust, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves. Quite good indeed!

22 oz bottle from Finger Lakes Beverage Center in Ithaca. Pours out a light orange color. Little to no head, but decent carbonation. Aroma of sweet spices and some alcohol. Body is on the lighter side also. Lots of cinnamon, clove and maybe nutmeg spices. Not too sweet though. Easy to drink.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2011
Deep golden pour. The nose is a little bit spicy. A touch of cardamom and a little bit of almost creamy aroma. Lightly honeyish with a nice soft sweetness. A great balance of soft sweet malt and nice spiciness. Lightly cinnamon and nutmeg. Lingering sweet and spicy finish. Has a nice creamy palate.

Ron (2772) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Poured a nice translucent orange with a small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma had plenty of pumpkin spices. Flavor had plenty of cinnimon spices upfront just like a pumpkin pie. Good stuff.

Heavy dose of cinnamon fills the aroma of pumpkin spices and this one is very flavorful. Finish has a bit of a waxy flavor which Iím not sure is from the alcohol or a generous dose of pumpkin seeds and malts.

j12601 (7248) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Bottle that I brought to Andyís place. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Big pumpkin pie, vanilla and pie crust, very soft cinnamon. Lots of pumpkin - this actually tastes like pumpkin pie filling. Not just spices like most pumpkin beers taste like, but pumpkin flesh and spices. Lightly spicy bitterness on the end. Best pumpkin beer Iíve had in ages, possibly ever.

McGarnigle (570) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bomber from BotW. Clear amber our with really nice soft head. Nice creamy body as well. As with all pumpkin ales, this tastes more of the associated spices than pumpkin itself. But itís quite good. Not too sweet; less booze than ST Pumpking, but Iíd guess this is 6% or more. One of the few good ones of the style. Nice job, Horseheads.
