Bottle. Body is an autumnal mix of orange and brown and supports a medium sized tan head. Aromas are pie spices and pumpkin (maybe a bit of dishsoap, too). Flavor starts off a little malty and then heads into a very spicy finish. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg mingle with the pumpkin flavoring and create a fairly nice aftertaste. Every now and then it seems a little watery and every now and then there is a little bit of a soapy aftertaste... apart from these two minor snags it is an interesting and well done pumpkin beer.

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!

Pint glass Great aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie. Just all around a great smelling beer. Pours a dark nutmeg color, with a slightly offwhite thick head. Flavors predominantly of cinnamon, nutmeg, little pumpkin, lots of spice. Great autumn flavors. Lingering spice on the palate, gets kind of a tangy aftertaste though. Great beer at a great price for the fall, I suggest picking it up if you haven’t for next year.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Amber in color with small off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie all the way, with nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. Taste is sweet malt, spices, and pumpkin. Medium mouthfeel, quite smooth. Pretty good!

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 if youíre looking for a pumpkin beer, this is the one. the best thing is about this beer is the pumpkin pie aroma. iíve tried a few pumpkin beers and this is the only one iíll buy. UPDATE 1 YEAR LATER: pumpkin smell is nice. lots of spice. the beer itself is pretty boring. to me, it gets novelty points for just smelling so pumpkin-y

Poured a golden color. Aroma is exploding with flavor, especially cinnamon and nutmeg; If you like those spices you will like this beer. Taste is easy drinking, light body. Little fizzy. Sweet. Like eating pumpkin pie. I just had the Dogfish punkin right before this one and they compare pretty close. This one has a better aroma, but the DF has a slight better taste.

(draft @ Dís 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.

Not much in the way of head, but I really liked the color and the subtle spice undertones to the malt.
