Your basic pumpkin beer, but a bit more assertive and alcoholic. The assertiveness comes though in the spicyness, accentuated by added hops.

Soirée Pumpkin ale au Rattle ’n’ Hum NYC. En fût. Une autre bière impériale ! Un liquide ambre. Un nez plus près du chocolat que de la citrouille. Une bouche qui joue du même instrument, une touche épicée parmi ce chocolat. Correct sans plus.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear medium amber with two fingers of fluffy off-white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate lacing. (3/5) Nose is pureed peaches and squash, caramel malt, pumpkin pie spices. (5/10) Taste is sweet tending to cloying, mild bitter. (5/10) Medium body, low carbonation, mild bitter finish. (3/5)
Hey, it’s Halloween! If I can’t have a pumpkin beer now, when can I? Well... Never, maybe? A bit disappointing, to be honest. I read the reviews before buying this, and thought it might be one of the (very) few pumpkin ales that bucked the trend. But this isn’t even close to being the best pumpkin beer I’ve had, and pumpkin beers aren’t even close to the best beers in general, so... Yeah. (10/20)

Pours clear orange, thin off-white head, doesn’t last, lacing is spotty. Nose is pumpkin pie spices, crystal malt, light non-specific fruitiness, standard clean yeast, some pumpkin here, but if there wasn’t a giant Jack-o-Lantern on the label, I’d be hard pressed to pick it out.

I didn’t even want to like this thing so much. In the past I have had some fairly awful at worst and lackluster at best Pumpkin Ale experiences. As I am a sucker for all things pumpkin though, I keep going back in hope of finding a decent festive brew. From the smooth notes of clove, cinnamon, anise, nutmeg, brown sugar, caramel and of course pumpkin to the beautiful red-orange glow with the lofty cream head, this liquid pie does it right. The taste is sweet but not saccharine and is thoroughly pumpkininny. A smooth and low carbonated body with a small hint of oiliness, this gourd guzzle hides it’s booze bomb well but warms this fella on a crisp autumn day. Huzzah!

Quite a tasty pumpkin brew for how strong it is. Pours an unfiltered amber colour with a big head. Aroma is of pumpkin pie, and all the spices that go into it and even some ginger. Tastes about the same which is fine by me. Had low carbonation and is smooth, I was kind of hoping for a heavier body though.

32 oz bottle, consumed at Right Proper Brewing. Poured a relatively clear amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma was pumpkin, actual pumpkin, with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg. Flavor was nice light pumpkin pie, with nutmeg taking the forefront on this, with light cinnamon and gourd following up. Actually not bad.

19 sept 2014, bottle. Orange, clear, steady bubbles nose is big pumpkin our spice but not too sweet. Med body and mildly fizzy. A tad spicy, pumpkin pie spices, maybe clove is most noticeable but not too much. Decent.
