Thanks to Darkelf for sharing this one. Pours with an orange amber body topped by a thin to medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It smells and tastes like pumpkin pie...nuff said. Medium bodied and smooth with a touch of dryness.

12oz bottle consumed around Halloween 2007 in a side by side tasting with Arcadia Jaw Jacker. Deep clear amber pour with a head of thin white wispy lace. Aroma is pleasant even from feet away. Up close the aroma is quite strong - but nice. Rich pumpkin pie flavor that reminds me of thanksgiving dessert. I wasn’t expecting much but this turned out to be really nice. 8/4/7/3/16

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

[1879-20081205] Cask. Sweet pumpkin whipped cream pie aroma. Clear, orange red body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Sweet whipped cream and spicy pumpkin pie slice flavour has some evergreen spearmint hints. Medium body. Fresh and spicy.

I like pumpkin, pumpkin pie, pumpkin roll, carving pumpkins, pumpkin cookies, so my rating is biased. I do not work for the brewer.

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!

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!

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.

Bottle. Pours red with an off white head. The aroma is pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor has pie crust, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Very impressive.

<i>Draught at Coles, Buffalo, NY.</i> Pours a clear deep orange with a spare diminishing white head. Lovely aroma of pumpkin, spices and even some eggnog. Flavour: Wow, I love it! Pumpkin and spices and with a light bitter finish. Good body for the style. Quite possibly the best beer I’ve had from Michigan Brewing, this is damn good stuff.
