On tap at Memphis Taproom - if you like pumpkin ale, you’ll like this. Nice color and flavor - sweet, but not too sweet with just a touch of hops.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2009
This brown pour is very carbonated in appearance. It smells like metal and allspice. It is surprisingly flat and a little watery but has some pumpkin flavor. Smooth enough but just doesn’t cut it for me as far as pumpkins go.

blipp (6028) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Draft. Pours deep amber with almost no head. Very light aroma of roasted pumpkin seeds. The flavor focuses more on real pumpkin than spices. A touch of brown sugar accompanies. Nice.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Amber color with a mildly grainy aroma that features some pumpkin and sugar. Flavor is of some real pumpkin, spices, and sugar. Not bad - real pumpkin is the key here, but its not all that great. Decent pumpkin ale.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Pours a translucent orange amber with a minimal head. Aroma of pumpkin pie...flavor of the same. More brown sugar than most pumpkin ales. I liked it.

cheap (4014) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2007
On tap at the philly brewpub. Slight pumpkin spice aroma. Reddish in color but pretty clear. Pumpkin spice flavors. Starts of rather mild then morphs into a veggie medium bitter personality. Barely any carbonation. Typical veggie spice pumpkin beer.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Rich amber body with a creamy, whitish head. Aroma is worty with a nice impression of pumpkin meat. Tangible, soft starchy pumpkin character in the flavor and palate. Lightly warming suggestion of spices. Warm and pleasant aftertaste. Not overblown or cloying. Subtle, but solid and interesting.
