Golden amber color with light-med head. Smooth sweet & spicy pumpkin aroma. Taste is malty, pretty nice body for a pumpkin. Sweet, sessionable, and about the best that can be expected from a pumpkin beer.

Poured with an amber color, decent head, good retention, good lacing. The aroma was spicey, pumpkins. The flavor was pretty well balanced for a pumpkin ale, nice touch of pumpkins as well as cinnamon and nutmeg, not overboard on either. Mouthfeel moderate but fairly well carbonated, keeping this a little on the dry side (nothing cloying or spicey annoying!).

Draft at the North Wales brewery. Good aroma and decent appearance with thin head. Flavor is decent but not as well balanced as it should be. Too malty, not enough hops.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2006
Cask at North Wales. Clear, golden-amber body with a soft, creamy head. Great blend of warm mulling spices with suggestions of all spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Unexpected, prominent bubble gum note. Comes across like pumpkin spiced bubble gum. Medium sweet and well-spiced with some moderate bitterness. Lightly starchy and smooth texture. Enjoyable as a dessert beer in small doses, but the flavor quickly becomes rather cloying.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Sampled in Newark. Pours a very pretty reddish orange color with a small beige head. Aroma is subtle pumpkin, really no spices present at all. Flavor mimiced nose. Kind of a subtle pumpkin taste with a little sugar but thats it. Eh.

desurfer (1209) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Growler from Wilmington. Pours a nice hued fiery orange with no head. Aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon, very sweet. Flavor is smooth with little carbonaton (damn you screw-cap growlers). There’s a nice pumpkin pie sugary character as well as lots of fall spices. Not much in the way of hops. Nice autumn beer.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - NOV 9, 2005
On tap at the Media location. Pours a translucent orange amber with a small off white lacing head. Aroma was on the lighter side. Picked up some pumpkin as well as various pumpkin pie spices. Taste was of the same. Pretty standard Pumpkin Ale, luckily nothing artificial going on like some of these have. Was also picking up more "standard" beer characteristics compared to others I’ve had. Might have been due to some of the hops I was picking up.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2004
On tap at the Iron HIll in Media. Poured a clear, medium amber color with an off white head. Mainly spices in the nose. Very light pumpkin comes through in the taste. Dry finish. Fizzy body.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2004
MEDIA, PA: Nice dark orange color with a light tan head. There was pumpkin flavor but it wasn’t as heavy as it has been in the past. A little more hoppy than in the past as well. I took homw a growler for Halloween.

Nice pumpkin flavor. More spice than sweetness, which I liked. Great amber/orange color.
