Draft at Newark location. Poured a nice amber color with nice head. Aroma is overall weak with spice, pumpkin and mild alcohol. Taste is light spice, pumpkin, and some alcohol. Not as good as other pumpkin ales I tried.

On tap at the newark location. Orange in color. Weak aroma of pumpkin. Taste is perfume like pumpkin ale....Not that good. Lightly spiced just not as good as other pumkin ales. Off balances like other people said.

Poured an amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of light cinnamon and caramel malts. Taste followed suit, non-descript, lightly spiced, maybe some metal, bitter hops, and thin. Especially after that Vanilla Pumpkin, this one really fell short.

Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a clear, slightly orangish color. There is a bit of a head on it, and it leaves some lacing. The nose is definitely pumpkin pie spice. Potent, but not overdone. The taste is along the same lines. A decent malt backbone with pumpkin pie spices. Lots of them, but not overdone. A good pumpkin beer!

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Poured a dark dark golden color with small head and good lacing. Aroma was spices and pumpkin. Flavor was a good blend of the 2 a little sweet for me but still good.

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2006
Medium copper pour, with aroma of strong pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice. The flavor was pumpkiny, authentic, not too sweet, with a medium palate that got a bit tart at the finish. Smooth drinking, but not terribly complex or having those intangible qualities that made me want to order another.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2006
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.

eaglefan538 (2904) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 13, 2006
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.
