Poured a clear orange color with a thin white head that faded quickly. Aroma is very sweet with lots of pumpkin and cream. Some nutmeg and other spices as well. Taste is very smooth and creamy with lots of pumpkin. A good amount of spices help to balance out the sweetness somewhat. This definitely tastes more like pumpkin pie than most pumpkin beers. Overall pretty tasty!

Bottled August 2, 2014.
Glass: Carton teku.
Appearance: Clear dark amber to copper body with a short and dense off-white creamy head.
Aroma: Cinnamon and graham cracker come to mind with a dash of cooked pumpkin. The aroma leans mildly sweet and pleasant.
Taste: Mild to moderately malty throughout with hints of caramel, graham cracker crust, and mild cinnamon. Pumpkin is lightly roasted and mild throughout with a rather big vanilla coke finish. Not bad, definitely a standout in the pumpkin crowd, not forgoing a good malt base for spices.
Palate: Near full-bodied with mild to moderate carbonation.
Overall: The ABV is deceiving and this is one of the few pumpkins that gets flavor from the malts in conjunction to the spices rather than the spices alone. This is solid, though the vanilla heavy finish might be off-putting to some. Definitely worth a try though.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle:   Baked Pumpkin is right!   This one actually reminds me a bit of a Cinnamon Roll.   Bready, cinnamon, nutmeg, with that sweet sugary glaze.   Less of a Pumpkin Ale than a Cinnamon Roll.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.  It could be close to a Baked Pumpkin Ale, but I prefer to think of this as a nice Cinnamon Roll.

callmemickey (2778) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Amber colored body with thin off-white head and sparse lacing. Moderate pumpkin presence with softer (for the style) cinnamon and nutmeg. Nice vanilla-bread finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a smooth, semi-sweet finish.

HighlanderOne (1002) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Poured from bottle. Burnt pie crust, brown sugar, spice and pumpkin in aroma. Bright amber, hardly any head. Flavors of nutmeg, brown sugar pumpkin, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon. A good deal of carbonation, which works well. Nicely done.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle from Wegman’s. Pours copper-colored wih off-white head. Nose is pumpki puree, pumpkin spices, mild bready notes. Tastes semi-sweet, not too spicy, with a decent balance of pumpkin flavor, spice flavor, and some crusty vanilla late. This one is pretty good.

Advocate_Ames (428) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Pours amber in color with a short foam head that dissipates. The aroma is of soft spices including cloves, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. There is also a sweet carmel malt undertone behind those spices. In the flavor the spices blend nicely with the sweet malt taste. The finish is of malts with a pleasant and drinkable spice flavor. Overall a good spiced ale and this is worth trying to get your pumpkin fix.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle from Spirits Lacey. Pours out a nice dark camber color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet/spicy pumpkin spices, leaning more towards the sweetness, with a nice amount of vanilla and brown sugar. Taste is a nice balance of traditional pumpkin pie flavors. Sweet cinnamon sugar, vanilla, some nutmeg and mild clove notes in there.
