Picked it up at our local Co-Op. Just put out last week. Enjoyed in a Hill Farmstead Glass.

A - Burnt Golden Brown. Almost no head.

S - Heavy very dominant pumpkin scent up front. Not very sweet scent though. Some spices.

T - More glorious pumpkin. Very tasty. American bitter hops. some piney notes, lots of creamy sort of spicy vanilla pumpkin puree sort of taste. Some nutmeg

M - 40% carbonation. Medium body.

O - Surprisingly good for pumpkin beers. Enjoyable and solid.

Pours a deep amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma is very spice forward...somewhat muddled. Flavor follows suit...excessive bitterness for my taste in the style. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is bitter and spicy...dry lingering spice. Just another spicy mess with no depth or pumpkin flavor at all.

From a bottle. Pours hazy medium reddish brown with a thin fizzy head. Tastes like pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg, slightly sour. Not too spiced and not very sweet. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like squash vegetables, spices, and alcohol.

Cloudy reddish caramel pour with no head. Aroma of pumpkin spices and bread. Very spicy flavor with cinnamon, ginger, and clove dominant. Some bread and slight pumpkin at the end. Very big beer. Great lacing.

The aroma is pumpkin pie spices, brown sugar, light booze, pumpkin. The appearance is relatively clear deep amber, off-white head. The flavor is like the aroma, pie spices, caramel, pumpkin. Boozy. The finish is light booze, pine, spices. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. The booze comes through too much, especially considering itís only 8%. Still, pretty enjoyable overall.

LinusStick (2990) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Decent pumpkin beer. Aroma was all pumpkin pie spice (heavy on the cinnamon and ginger). Pour was beautiful. Thick deep dark gold (light brown) in the middle then lightens as it goes outward with (surprise!) some sediment floating in there! One finger off white head. Taste was thick and chewy. There was a lot of roasted malt in this beer. The spices are not as heavy in the flavor but play nicely with that roastiness. Medium to light carbonation. Sweet pumpkin pie finish.

Ron (2948) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Pours a dark amber with fluffy beige head and good lacing. Aroma is pumpkin spice, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and some pumpkin. Taste is pumpkin, cloves, nutmeg, with a sweet banana finish and a little bitterness. the alcohol is a little noticeable in this one.

This is not a pumpkin pie type of beer thank goodness. Itís only September first. Nice malt aroma from an amber pour with a very thin head. A bit of the pumpkin comes through in the taste and the spices come out in the after taste. Not bad.

Pretty good pumpkin beer. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, toasty malts. Taste is medium sweet with good spice flavor and a bit of pumpkin flesh. Not too bad.
