COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There are three things we have learned to never discuss with people here: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin. But that doesn’t mean we can’t welcome our own Great PumpCan and sing pumpkin carols and enjoy MadTree’s way of delivering some delicious pumpkin ale flavor right to your gullet.

Deep reddish amber color out of the can with a quickly dissipating beige head. Nose of soft spice and alcohol. This beer was pretty purfumey with some of the traditional cinnamon and nutmeg and pie spices but with lots of alcohol over it and a long bitter almost vegetable finish with some dusty spice. Really not my favorite of the seasonal offerings.

One thing I can say about these infernal pumpkin beers, they sure do have a nice appearance. Look, this thing weighs in heavy, and it feels all of its 7.9%. For me, it is just a heavy marzen: Heavy malt, zesty, and thick. Serving sizes: as many as I want, 12oz cans.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy brown with a bubbly rim head, strips of lace. Taste is more about pumpkin spice than about pumpkin. Malt is the opener, but mild nutmeg, ginger, etc. take over in the palate. A unique brew, quite drinkable, but one at a session is enough.

Draft: this is very nice... But in a sea of pumpkin beers, it gets a little lost. It’s not too sweet, or spicy, but both are still there to accent the pumpkin flavors. Very nice and will be drinking this one again, for sure.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium sized creamy off white head. The aroma and flavor have nice pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel malt, fleshy pumpkin, light toast, the spices cut the sweetness a bit making this very drinkable. The finish has a mild + bitterness. A nice local seasonal brew.

A very easy drinking pumpkin beer. Not overly spiced. Cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice are present with an underlying flavor of squash and caramel

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Draft at Incline Public House on November 4, 2013. Dark brown hue, big pumpkin and spice nose, moderate to strong mostly spicy flavor with the pumpkin not nearly as prominent as in the aroma. Very drinkable beer that is sweet without putting one into a sugar coma. Good fall/winter brew.

phaleslu (6430) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Draft at The Brass Tap - U Square. Pours a clear, deep red-orange color with a small off-white head. Notes of pumpkin, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, caramel, toast- all the elements seem to be here, and working well. Seems really fresh, and pops on the palate. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a spicy mouthfeel. Hides the almost 8% well. A nice seasonal addition to the local offerings.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Draft. Poured hazy orange brown color with an average to large off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid allspice aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced spice flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good spice with no pumpkin beer.

On tap at Dutch’s. Clear orange-red color. Good thin khaki head, leaves some ropes and somewhat loose dots of lace. Really nice big pumpkin aroma, nice and hearty, with a balanced amount of spice. Spice does not overwhelm the pumpkin, it’s still allowed to shine here. Medium to bigger body, light carbonation, very impressively drinkable. It’s not too sweet, moderately spicy, light bitter - the sweetness being in check makes this a very drinkable 8% pumpkin beer, very quaffable. Smooth, easy drinking. Lightly dry finish. Very enjoyable pumpkin beer. I had a sample, then got a pint, then finished the pint easily and still wanted more. Has the body and potency of other ~8% pumpkin beers, without being oversweet or overspiced. Impressively balanced. I really dig it, very satisfying.
