COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours orange copper with an attractive off-white head and a strong pumpkin aroma. There is a spicy caramel malt flavor with a lot of natural pumpkin. Not my favorite style, but a good example of pumpkin beer.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange-apricot color with a thick foamy white head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pumpkin spices and malt. Medium body with flavors of pumpkin pie spices and bready malt. The finish is sweet with clove and malt notes in the aftertaste. Decent overall.

thegreenrooster (3300) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Pour is a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a decent pumpkin with a spice and a burning. Flavor is a very slight spice and not much after that. The finish is watery and almost flavorless. As far as pumpkin beers go this was way below par. No real spice or pumpkin stand out.

"a nice well-rounded pumkin ale. spices definitely there, but don’t overpower or take away from the natural pumpkin, which you can both smell and taste. smooth and creamy, yet a little on the watery side, but a well made beer for sure. courtesy of jlozier."

Bottle. Pours clear butterscotch with a small white head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, caramel. Flavor is the same, medium spiced, light sweet, minimal bitterness. Medium body. Not bad, but not really my thing.

Thisis12ptfont (863) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Aroma of pumpkin spice and bread. Appears a pale gold with no foam. Very crisp and distinct pumpkin spice flavor overtones. Some caramel, bread, oats and fresh hops are noticeable on the palate. Overall, this is a pleasantly refreshing pumpkin ale. Complexity is fair and body is at a medium. I’d give this a B rating.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a decent layer of foamed head while the liquid was a glowing golden yellow. Aroma is heavily laced with cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie like scents which are all signs that this is a good sign that this is a worthy pumpkin ale. The flavor is heavy and rich with authentic pumpkin pie like flavors and is quite possibly the best pumpkin beer I have ever tasted. Seriously, this pumpkin ale makes all the rest look like amateurs compared to this. This nails it right on the head and taste like a liquid pumpkin pie. This is one of the few beers I will be offering my parents to taste since they might enjoy this just like I did.
