Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a light-medium head. Very spice-heavy aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, and ginger. The flavor is similar - the spices (I get ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg, roughly in that order) come through more strongly than the pumpkin. Nice finish and aftertaste. One of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had.

12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy, burnt orange with a ring of sticky, slightly off white head. Nose is what you’d expect, cinnamon, nutmeg, some brown sugar, some white pepper, some roasted squash, a little candy. Flavor follows right along, canned pumpkin puree, cinnamon, brown sugar, ginger, all spice. Spicy finish. What you’d expect.

NikkTwist (1624) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Clear dark orange pour. Head disappeared quickly. Nicely juicy. Pumpkin Pie spice is there but thankfully not the focus here. Soft carbonation. Pleasant balanced malts. Beats other Pumpkin Beers by determinedly not going over the top.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Tap sample. Poured clear hazy orange amber color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid pumpkin and spice. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced pumpkin and spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid seasonal beer.

Spicy aroma but wasn’t overwhelming. Appearance looked the same as other pumpkin ales. This was my fourth different seasonal/pumpkin beer of the year already and i would rank this third behind Pumking and jacko(must like shandys to enjoy jacko). This had the best overall mix of pumpkin/spice/cinnamon taste behind Pumking. Well done

TheCaptMatey (32) - Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Poured a dark cloudy amber with a thin head. Strong aroma of pumpkin with a bit of cinnamon. Taste very much the same. Pumpkin is definitely not hidden or masked by spices or malt flavors. Very smooth and light with a sweet finish.

On tap at Dutch’s... First pour from the keg. Completely cloudy kind of light brown color (which I’m sure will clear out in subsequent pours). Thin off-white head, leaving great thicker lace. Up front in the nose, great pumpkin, pumpkin spice, and a bit of citrusy hop aroma. In the flavor, a pretty impressive malt balance... Good chocolate, mild caramel, and a bit of that honey malt in there. Medium plus body.. Very smooth and easy-drinking. Crisp lighter carbonation, light chewiness to the body, more dry finish. Kind of a spicier taste towards the finish, mild to moderate bitterness, moderate sweet taste. Pretty solid, enjoyable pumpkin ale. Up front, I was loving this. It was my first pumpkin beer of the year, so my palate was ready. Maybe I needed a beer too, at the moment. Halfway through the spice started to show up a lot more and grind on the overall package a bit, and I slowed down. Still a very a solid, enjoyable pumpkin beer.

zach8270 (3470) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2014
(bottle - 12 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Aroma is a very lightly spiced almost pumpkin bread smell. Good amount of pumpkin and not overpowered by the cinnamon. Bitter spice and pumpkin at the start. More like a pumpkin pie with a good amount of ginger and clover. Bitter and lightly sweet pumpkin finish.

Transfer from BA reveiw on 11-26-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a burnt orange color with a tiny white head that fades almost instantly leaving no lacing. Smell – The smell is a mix of roasted malt, pumpkin and some sweet brown sugar and caramel. There are some very light nutmeg and clove aromas as well. Overall sweet and roasty. Taste – The taste starts out of sweet caramel and a bready taste. Quickly a sweet brown sugar laden pumpkin flavor mixed with a lighter spice of nutmeg and allspice come to the tongue. These flavors linger throughout the taste till the end where the roasted pumpkin and malt flavors increase. In the end a sweet-lightly roasted pumpkin flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is a little above average in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather low. While a bit more carbonation would have been good for the sweeter nature of the beer, the creamy body (accentuated by the lower carbonation) was very good for the pumpkin flavors. Overall – Not a bad pumpkin brew. It is on the sweeter side without too much spice. Worth a try if you have a chance.

kramer (4943) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear orangish gold body with a small fizzy white head. Big spice and pumpkin nose with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, some decent pumpkin meat. The flavor is pretty well balanced, not over spiced, not overly sweet. Nice meaty flavor up front, finishes a bit heavy on the cinnamon though perhaps. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and almost creamy with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice Pumpkin Ale, they didn’t overdo it on the spice.
