callmemickey (2691) - 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 (1000) - 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 (7829) - 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 (426) - 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 (2504) - 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.

dmac (3999) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a good looking deep reddish orange with a smaller foamy light beige head. Solid aroma with notes of cinnamon, brown sugar, all spice, clove and some pumpkin meat. Fuller bodied with strong carbonation and even a touch of heat with a lingering tingle from the carbonation. Flavor isnt quite as good as the aroma as lots of toast and grains sneak in along with the spices, nutmeg, wet brown sugar, older cinnamon and all spice. Really decent.

EithCubes (4836) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 Bottle. Nose earthy with meaty pumpkin, very understated spice - nice! Pours a deep amber with short beige head. Taste lightly sweet with more spice than expected, but still not too much, flitting flights of citrus and a breezy bready finish. A little warmth in the chest from the extra etoh but that’s been tamed. Appreciate the tumbling malt complexity here, lends a great mouthfeel to a lightly crisp medium body. Spice and subtly earthy hops. Nice all around; knows balance and restraint, and despite the slightly raised potency, more drinkable than most seasonal pumpkin/spice soup beers.

12 oz bottle. Clear amber with a scant head. Nose is funky pumpkin, nutmeg and toffee. Medium light with dull carb. Taste is buttery pumpkin, cinnamon stick and club soda.

Pumpkin, spice, vanilla. Strongly flavored just like a pumpkin pie, not much beer.
