This fall seasonal ale is brewed with real pumpkin and a hint of allspice. It pours slightly orange in color with a light sweetness and spicy finish. This beer is no trick and all treat.

Draft. Clear orange pour, thin white head, Pumpkin, light sweetness, pie spices, allspice, light cinnamon, and caramel malt. Fairly dry for the pumpkin style, and also pretty light in the body. Ok.

Bottle:   Orangish straw, slight ruby hue, moderate white frothy head, spotty lacing.   More of a citrusy nose than anything.   Spices are subtle, at least secondary to the citrus peel.   Faint cinnamon on the tongue, moreso citrusy.   Seems to be about half and half as this thing finishes, half spiciness and half citrusy.   Very clean on the exit.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Decent little beer, but not as spicy as I would have liked.   The citrus adds an interesting touch.   Big thanks to Richard for getting me a couple of these.

22oz bottle from a recent trade... Pours a medium orange brown, somewhat hazy, and topped with a medium frothy white head... Aroma of a light pumpkin pulp base alongside a small degree of pale malt... Flavors are light with more of a pale malt essence with the pumpkin taking a secondary roleto the aforementioned. Body is lighter than expected with a lively mouthfeel attributed to by the active carbonation. Not the best pumpkin beer.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Appearance: Pours a bright amber orange with a retaining white head.

Aroma: Bready malt, pumpkin meat and potpourri.

Taste: Pumpkin pie spice, bready malt, very dry.

Mouthfeel: Prickly fizz. Medium bodied.

Overall: A dry, simple, session-able pumpkin ale, if there is such a thing.

fresh bottle courtesy of nicks6217, thanks man! drinks well, only moderate pumpkin flavor, seems like a belgian style ipa with pumpkin added. has a good amount of hops, and then has a slight amount of esters and rebounding malt sweetness in the finish. good stuff, not the best pumpkin brew, but stand alone i think its a good beer with a friendly addition of pumpkin.

Pours a light orange. Aroma is a mix of sweet and spice. Promising start that fades because the flavor is primarily salt with a quick hit of wheat. Allspice lingers at the end but only faintly.

Bottle, pours a hazy orange not much head to speak of. Decent aroma of some spices, vanilla, whip cream, pumpkin... Taste is a little watery... Thin. Little vanilla, pumpkin some spices... not bad. Texture could use some more body but overall decent pumpkin brew. Thanks joe!

A: The beer pours a hazy, light orange color with a finger of white head. S: There is a bit of pumpkin to this, but thatís just about it. A fair amount of all spice notes, and a definite grassy note. Itís lacking in any real sweetness or malt, however. T: A definite squash/vegetable character to it. So, the pumpkin character is good. Itís sort of lacking in terms of the spices and also the bread/malt notes. Strangely, itís also a bit too bitter for a pumpkin beer. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: Really disappointing. Iíve heard this beer praised highly, but it didnít live up to its billing.

bottle... medium gold, hazy, nice light tan head... light nose with a bit of pumpkin and a little spice... the taste is really controlled, more like an ipa with a bit of pumpkin, very dry... pleasant enough

Aroma is pumpkin and the usual spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves. Appearance is orange with nice head. Taste is really sweet. Certainly sweeter than I wanted it to be. Pumpkin then sugary sweet spices. Palate is nice especially for a fall seasonal, a bit heavier than most pumpkins which I liked. Overall this is a bit heavy handed and which the palate is spot on the taste is heavy.
