Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber color, medium white head. Aroma of ginger, cinnamon, light gourd. Spice is not overwhelming in the taste, but not too exciting either. Decent enough.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottles from Wegmans and Capone’s. Pours chill hazy caramel colored with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is pumpkin spice, cardamom, vienna malt., Tastes semi-sweet, with a medium palate heft and complexity, and a flavor that has pumpkin and pumpkin spice up front, then some malt kicks in, but the punpkin is the star here.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Sample at Hal & Al’s during the Pumpkin Beer Tasting on 10/15/2013: Clear orange-amber pour with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing. Malt, pumpkin and caramel in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of toasted malt, nutmeg and cinnamon. The finish is sweet with a ginger and pumpkin aftertaste. Decent overall.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium orange with a short toasted marshmallow head. The aroma picked up sweet pumpkin and vanilla paired with nutmeg and a touch of cinnamon.. quite nice. The flavor found watery pumpkin meat and bready notes at the core with more nutmeg and cinnamon around.. prickly carbonation and some prickly carbonation on the weak finish. Light-bodied with mostly spicage on the palate.. this just needed more substance.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear ruby tinged amber with a medium sized white head. Lots of spices on the nose, a light hint of pumpkin. Medium bodied, a bit sweet, bitter spices. Burnt toast, a good amount of bitter spices. Meh.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle:   Reddish side of amber, faint haze, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Spicy nose, cinnamon, nutmeg, lots of allspice.   Similar tongue, just the right amount of spiciness IMO.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, lingering spices.   This is a nice straight forward example of the style!

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Draft served in a pint glass at The Nines in Ithaca. Pours a deep orange color, just a little cloudy, with a tiny off-white head that doesn’t last at all. The aroma needs a little warming to emerge and when it does it brings nutmeg, brown sugar, graham crackers, and cinnamon. The flavor hits the same not with only a slight hint of anything vegetal. Light-bodied, with a sweet, malty mouthfeel with mellow spice and moderate carbonation. Solid pumpkin ale. Nice to try it fresh and local.

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
[Bottle (355ml).] Pours a hazy, very bubbly orange-copper with a small diminishing fizzy white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices and malt along with a hint of pumpkin and that’s pretty much it. Slightly watery flavour of spices, pumpkin, caramel malt and a moderate spicy finish. Light to average bodied. A decent Pumpkin Ale.

blipp (5646) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Draft. Pours amber orange with a thin off white head. Light nutmeg, sweet malts, and pumpkin sweetness. Relatively restrained in the spice department, with low bitterness throughout. Pretty good.
