(draft @ D’s Six Pax & Dogz - Pittsburgh, PA) Clear orange pour with a thin white head. Very nice and apparent pumpkin and spice notes in the aroma. Very minimal hops. Pumpkin pie and lots of spice all throughout with a rather malty and bready middle. Very little bitterness with a nice and sweet spice and pumpkin flavor at the finish.

12 oz bottle (low fill - probably 8 oz in there) from Dansting. Pour is brown, red, golden with a very thin white head. Aroma is BIG pumpkin spice, cinnamon and ginger. Smelled very much like a slice of pumpkin pie - more so than any Pumpkin beer I have had in the past. Taste is also a bunch of pumpkin pie, really interesting taste. I even thought I picked up some whipped cream in there. Finish is clean, though a touch metallic. Somewhat watery palate, though palate picked up as it warmed. Overall an interesting beer, and one of the better Pumpkin beers I have had.

12oz bottle, courtesy of pjweaver (my bro). Thanks, Phil! Pours a clear, bold orange-amber color; fluffy white head with good retention and lacing. Very generous, soft spicing in the aroma; mostly nutmeg with some cinnamon and toasty vanilla. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: pleasant amber ale underneath everything (clear; light carbonation), surrounded by warming nutmeg and cinnamon; none of the typical spice harshness, just toasty and warm spicing. Medium, candy sugar and nutmeg in the finish; a bit dry.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 25, 2003
This is the "Screamin' Pumpkin Spiced Ale," which I assume is the same beer. This clear orange beer poured with an off-white creamy head and spicy nutmeg aroma. Rather full-flavored, with nutmeg and cinnamon joining forces. A wee bit of bready malts peek through the spicy morass. Decent example of a style that is otherwise wearing thin on me at this point.

On tap at Cole’s. Spicy nose, cinnamon, allspice, amber/orange, small custard head. Taste has a spicy start, again, allspice, nutmeg, malt is there too. Medium bodied, sweet, spicy and tasty. Very good.

(12 oz bottles: Obtained 21-Feb-06 in trades with Pailhead and Silphium, thanks Kevin and Brad!) If you love pumpkin pie with lots and lots of spices, and want your beer to taste like that same pumpkin pie in liquid form, this is a great pumpkin beer for you. The nose is just brimming with sweet pumpkin pie spice -- cinnamon, nutmeg and clove in particular, but also plenty of sweet honey. A delightful aroma that is equaled by a flavor that exhibits the same characteristics. The underlying malt base may or may not be interesting because it’s hard to tell with how much sweet honey and spice there is masking the other flavors. A gentle wave of hops emerges in the finish just as the sweet spices start to fade a little, and I think the beer finishes on a down note because of it. While the medium body is satisfying, the beer seems to thin out fairly quickly, finishing a bit watery. Golden amber in color with only a slight haze, covered by half an inch of off-white head that settles to a filmy layer. Only a few small patches of lace remain on the glass. This beer is so spicy, it doesn’t seem like beer any more, but it sure is tasty.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a medium orange amber with a thin white ring. Big nose of pumpkin spice, nutmeg and clove. Flavor was of toasted malt and spice, one of the better pumpkin brews I’ve had.

queenholly (2919) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Bottle. Pretty copper color with a small white head. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, vanilla, and sweet caramel. Flavor was right in keeping with the aroma: spicy pumpkin pie, sweet caramel malt, and vanilla. This is my first pumpkin ale and it was everything I expected a spiced pumpkin ale would taste like. Very nice.

bottle. november 2011. orange with small head. really nice fall spice. not overdone, perfect amount. if all the MBC beers were this good, they’d still be in business. sadly, only this and the IPA were any good.

The aroma of this beer is the best of any of the pumpkins hands down. Strong alcohol and spices that would be the equivelant of snorting a line of pumpkin pie mix. Pour was a clear medium brown with a 1 finger white head. Taste was not too strong. Heavy carbonation drowned out any taste, but the heavy pumpkin aroma floats up through the nostrils. Nice.
