Very sweet/spicy aroma with some malt and caramel. Orange/amber appearance with hazy liquid and a minimal tan head. A sweet taste with some maltiness with nutmeg and other seasonal spices. Medium body.
Overall, Iíve been looking for a good pumpkin/season beer for a while, so Iím picking up the local beers. This one tastes more like a normal malty ale with a sprinkle of nutmeg and other spices. Without the spices, it would taste like a normal ale and I was looking for something a bit more pumpkiny.

Clear and orange in color with minimal head. Pumpkin, cinnamon, alcohol fumes. Lots of spice and obvious alcohol flavor. Good but not the best pumpkin Iíve had.

poured from 22oz bottle into standard pint glass. dark amber with moderate off white head that fades quickly. the never ending stream of swiftly rising bubbles indicate a lively carbonation. smells of nutmeg, cinnamon, and faint pumpkin. tastes sweet, slightly cloying, you can catch the pumpkin and spice, nice kind of dry mouthfeel that leaves you thirsty for more. very decent pumpkin ale that does not overdo the spice

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured this beer from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a rusty copper/dark-amber color with a good bit of sediment at the bottom, and an average-sized, tan head that had good lacing, but average retention and cling. The aroma featured a big blend of spices, including brown sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon, along with notes of pumpkin, caramel, and cloves to go with a light pine hops effect. It had a good, sweet taste with a somewhat bitter spice, paired with tones of pumpkin, nutmeg, and candy, and also had a slight sour effect. It had a thick mouthfeel, but gave way to a thinner finish which was a bit harsh; the beer had good life and carbonation and was quite dry.

Long Trail Imperial Pumpkin is a murky copper ale thatís topped with a generous and long lasting, creamy yellow foam of a head. There are lots of spices in the nose: coriander, nutmeg, etc. Itís smooth and full bodied. The finish is chewy and a bit dry. Itís quite sweet. It tastes boozy-- boozier than it is. I taste possible fusel and lots of spices. Thereís a long, lingering juniper bitterness. Iím known to enjoy crazy pumpkin ales with great delight. This one is just kind of... rude.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin head of varying sized bubbles with minimal carbonation. Spicy aroma with lots of ginger and nutmeg along with some vegetal aromas. Color is a very impressive bright copper red. Body is a bit thin and watery. More spices dominate the flavor with some pumpkin, toasted malts and earthy flavors. Bit of a dry and chalky palate. Minimal alcohol presence for an 8% brew. Expected a bit more body for this brew. Decent but nothing special.
