j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazed amber brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Soft pie spices and a touch of pumpkin, with a bit of yeast and a little sweet malt and toast. Medium bodied, a touch of warm booze, slightly overcooked pie crust, a bit of pie and spices. Finishes with a bit of spice, a touch of tart sweetness. Decent and easy drinking, but not all that great.

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.

kevhig (5) - reading, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2012 does not count
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
