Draft at Union Kitchen and Tap - Encinitas, CA. Pours orange-amber with a foamy, off-white head. Pretty hefty stuff, lots of syrupy sugars, booze, moderate spices. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Hot finish with ripe pumpkin, alcohol, cloying sugary sweetness. So so.

Draft at The Local Eatery & Water Hole, San Diego. Fuck load of pumpkin and cinnamon spice in the nose. Taste is more over powered by the cinnamon spice. Pumpkin flavours slightly muddled. Average stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"2013 - Witch’s Hair Pumpkin Ale. Not sure that they were going for this, as there was no mention of it on the label description, but damn this thing tasted and smelled of PICKLED ginger. Very. Obviously. Pickled. Not sure how you’d get that by mistake, but it was at the foresfront. Most of us kinda dug it, as it stood out from the crowd. Decent use of spices and pumpkin/squash as well, but pickle dominated :) I’d like to have again just to compare."

Bottle from bhensonb. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a pumpkin pie aroma. There is a hearty vegetable and caramel malt flavor with way too much spice.

Strong pumpkin pie spice aroma coming off an orange/amber body with a thin tan head. That spice hits right away with a strong and somewhat overpowering cinnamon flavor along with (I think) nutmeg and a slight vegetal component. It’s hard to get past all the cinnamon and this would be a fairly tasty pumpkin beer if not for that. I’ll be looking for this next year and hoping they back off the cinnamon.

This beer is excellent. I am usually not a fan of too many pumpkin beers but whatever this Santee brewery did really created something special. I bought a bottle on a whim and have ben back to the liquor store 4 times since and cleaned them out of this one. Grab a bottle and enjoy!

The beer pours a an amber color in the glass. I can pickup a some nutmeg and cloves with a small hint of pumpkin. There is some caramel with some sweet spices and pumpkin.
