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

aroma is fantastic for a pumpkin beer. reminds me of a local ice cream place which offers pumpkin shakes, just like sticking your nose in a can of pumpkin oie filling. as good as the aroma starts out, the flavor is a bit over the top. ginger is quite strong with cinnamon, nutmeg and all-spice not far behind. pretty good for the style, but by the end it got a little old. its like you can eat one or two pieces of pumpkin pie, but not the whole pie at one sitting. thanks to Styles for the bottle.

tap at hopcat. tastes like moms pumpkin pie, fermented and poured in a glass. lots of spices come through in the aroma and flavor, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg. pumpkin flavor in the background. not my favorite style, but pretty good.

Thanks Floyd. A clear caramel beer with a smallish tan head. A nice aroma with pumpkin that is just some Cool Whip away from pumpkin pie including the spices. Feel is quite zesty and gives a nice zing to the tip of the tongue. Flavor is exactly the same as the aroma. One of the best beers in this genre that I have had.

Pours a clear dark yellow orange color with slight foamy white head. Aroma is lots of spice and pumpkin. Flavor is a bit doughy with nice sweet base and good amount of spice without being overpowering. Out of the many pumpkin beers I’ve had this one reminds me more of a pie than most. Good beer.

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.

(Draught at GABF) clear golden, fine ring of white bubbles. Nose of pumpkin, huge cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet brown sugar, juniper and herbal. Taste of spruce tips, christmas *HUGE* spices, cloves, little bit of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Well carbonated, huge spice linger and allspice on the palate.

27/III/2012 - 355ml bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2012-292) Thanks to Cory and kelly for the bottle!

Little cloudy deep orange beer, big irregular creamy head, adhesive, pretty stable. Aroma: lots of cloves, cinnamon, some ginger, more cloves, bit sugary, although that last could be my mind playing tricks on me with all of these pastry aromas. MF: soft carbon, light to medium body. Taste: lots of spices, mainly cinnamon and cloves, orange peel, gingerbread. Aftertaste: bitter, lots of spices, more cloves and cinnamon, bitter, little metallic, green banana.

Great pumpkin ale, though a bit thin. Aroma is great pumpkin, allspice, cinamon. Good spicey hop finish too. I expected more of a smooth palate and more of a winter warmer. Good beer for the style, but not my cup of stout.

Bottle. Hugely spicy aroma. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Pours copper with some amber highlights. Flavor is spicy initially, loses a bit in the middle, then kicks you in the ass with some massive spice on the finish. Medium bodied. Damn... this one’s gonna give me heartburn.
