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.

Blairgus (4103) - California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
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.

Bottle. Pretty standard pumpkin ale, some nice pumpkin spice, medium-full body. It's no Pumking, but a pretty good pumpkin beer.

shadey (2076) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Large flip-top bottle. Pours a bright orange red with a pillowy head of tight white bubbles that quickly diminishes to a thin layer. Aroma is creamy and well spiced. The complex scents don’t compete with one another, they are cohesive. Gentle carbonation brings the flavors onto the tongue. Lots of complex spice and lightly roasted pumpkin. Some toast and bready notes as well. Very drinkable considering the high alcohol level. Well done.

75 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via coop. Hazy apricot colour. Butterscotch sweet aroma, some clove and fennel. Sweet, though balanced, alcohol helping to flatten the seasonal flavours. Long spice hop finish.

Jow (3380) - New York, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Tap at the Jeffrey. Pours orange with no head. Nose is rich pumpkin pie filling and spice. Tastes of plenty of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, touch of earth, and malt. Almost some fruity koolaid on finish. Semi-sweet and a fulfilling pumpkin ale.

Pint purchased at the brewery. Dark orangey brown with minimal white head. Hint of pumpkin and cinnamon I think. Nice and chill on the first sip the bitterness followed by flavors of cinnamon and something I can’t put my finger on, although it is interesting. It doesn’t have too much of a palate, but I do feel the cinnamon when it goes down the throat.
