Very nice pumpkin ale. Orange/amber in color with a nice white head. Aroma of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Tastes like a liquored up pumpkin pie.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was strong nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor was bitter nutmeg and cinnamon and had a light dry malty undertone and a hint of hut. The finish was long and spicy. Nicely done.

Finally, someone gets a pumpkin beer right! I have tasted sooooooooo many mediocre Halloween beers this season, I was almost ready to cry. Nice auburn color with a wickedly sweet pumpkin aroma that reminder me of a bakery that had just pulled pies from the oven. The taste is nice in the mouth and the throat, not overpowering but the flavor of pumpkin does show through clearly. Not an awesome beer, but one that is true to the design. I wouldn’t expect more from a pumpkin beer Boo, cheers!

Bottle from Uncle Sudsy’s. Nice pumpkin pie spices, sweet with cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and brown sugar. Very little hops. Medium dark amber-brown clear, with thin head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with brown sugar and caramel, followed with tons of pumpkin pie spices. Light alcohol and estery flavors, with mild nutty bitter finish and calm spice-bitter after. Nice flavor to this one.

On tap at Old Chicago. Really underrated pumpkin beer from one of Michigan’s most mediocre brewers. Pours a murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is a spice bomb with allspice and nutmeg dominant. Taste is similarly spicy with vanilla undertones all built on a moderately sweet, understated pumpkin base. Finish is much more pleasant than that of other pumpkin seasonals. Nice surprise all around!

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2009 Bottle from Three Sons. This is the biggest for spices of this years crop so far. Nutmeg, vanilla and Orange fragrances, big spiced taste and surprisingly little bitter after taste. Amber color and modest head but really nice for the type. Oct 2008 had this beer on tap at nagoo’s. Great spice aroma and flavor, grapes , bubblegum. Great beer for type in bottle or gdraft 2009 Version Bottle still Big, a little less sweet than prior year

Mmmmmmmm . . . pumpkin pie! This beer really surpised me, and I can’t wait until Fall to get some more. It literally tastes like pumpkin pie, but you can still tell it’s beer. No one I know likes it, but I can’t get enough.

Pours a mostly translucent orange/amber with a medium frothy/bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of...you got it...Pumpkin Pie spices. A little heavy on the nutmeg and vanilla. Getting some cinnamon in there, but the nutmeg is really winning out. Maybe also some brown sugar, caramel and nuts. The flavor, pretty much a match of the aroma. A decent Pumpkin Ale with a solid label.

Bottle: Amber, a bit on the darker side, moderate foamy off-white head, decent lacing.   Big cinnamon and nutmeg nose.   For some reason it reminds me of egg-nog a bit.   Perhaps its heavy on the nutmeg?   I do believe it is.   Flavor is like nut-meg beer for me.   Weird, most beers I think of as Pumpkin beers, but this just reminds me of Egg-Nog beer.   I love Egg-Nog, so its no surprise I do find this tasty.   Not as sweet as others, but remains fairly spicy from start to finish.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, nearly full.   Finish does have a slight astringent bite to it, very very subtle tho.   Nutmeg lingers for quite a while.   Decent, even if it reminds me almost more of Christmas than the Autumn season.   Thanks Chris for yet another good brew!
