COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with real pumpkin, this seasonal favorite is the one true indication that fall has arrived. The aroma of nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and clove jump out of the glass creating an experience much like eating a slice of pumpkin pie on a brisk autumn afternoon. A perfect companion for any of our desserts. Formerly at 6.8%.

Can at the brewery in Manayunk. Not very good. Hazy cloudy pumpkin color. Metallic taste to the beer. Also a little bit of sour, lactic acid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A hazy orange color, small white layer of head. Smell is nutty with pumpkin, cinnamon/spice, malt and bread. A good brew that tastes quite a bit like pumpkin pie. It’s all natural flavors bring out the yeast creating a bit of a dry beer. Nutmeg, spice and earth top it off. Light and airy.

NikkTwist (1745) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Draft at Milkboy in Phila. Hazy orange amber pour that quickly resulted in no head. Ghostly pumpkin spice. Juicy body, but missing any strong flavors. Anomaly or not?

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle:   Very light example, spicy but muted.   Seems a touch musty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Spices are there, its just not very bright.   Tiz okay, but too light.

DiarmaidBHK (3558) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Can from Weis market in Lewsiburg. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Faint pumpkin on the nose and tongue. At least it didn’t come off as artificial as a lot of pumpkin beers do.

kramer (5095) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Can. Pours a clear copper body with a one inch foamy off-white head. Smells pretty typical, more spice than pumpkin, but not horribly so. Slightly sweet smelling with more nutmeg and cinnamon than anything, some caramel malt. The flavor is pretty well balanced as well, lightly spicy with nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon over a sweet caramel malt base. There is some pumpkin in here, but it’s clearly second fiddle to the spice bill. Lighter bodied and very drinkable due to the restrained sweetness, soft fizzy carbonation. This was pretty decent, better than many Pumpkin Ales.

I'm simply not impressed with this brewery. While significantly better than the Raspberry Sludge, Yucky Pumpkin has a dry finish, but not as sour as the Raspberry. ---Rated via Rumors Bar Pottsville, PA 570.622.8687

Travlr (13304) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Can courtesy of Dave and Michelle, thanks! Golden amber color, white head. Aroma of light spice. Taste is not as heavily spiced as some of the other gourd beers out there.

closey22 (980) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Cloudy orange/brownish with little rimming white head; aroma is distinctly just like fresh pumpkin pie; Flava is lightish with def notes of pumpkin spice; feels lightish to medium with some foamy fizz; finishes dry with notes of sharp grain and hints of spice
