Generous rating here. Kind of spicy cinnamon reminds me of fall and winter. Not much color or lacing but ok brew.

Pours slightly cloudy dark orange with very small particles floating about, slight of white thin head, some thin lacing. Aroma pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, toasted malt. Taste toasted malt and pumpkin up front, cinnamon and nutmeg kick in mid mouth and stay throughout, sweet pumpkin pie finish. Mouthfeel medium body and carbonation, sweet finish. Overall tasty beer, classic pumpkin ale, balanced and drinkable.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Strong spice aroma with a lot of nutmeg and some cinnamon and perhaps a bit of pumpkin. Pours orange amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly and no lacing. Starts with subtle pumpkin flavor with spice. Finishes quite spicy with the same strong spices from the aroma on the palate. Not bad, but fairly mundane pumpkin.

PorterPounder (5540) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - Abercorn - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper with a light bubbly off-white head that fades after a while. Aroma has some nutmeg accents, some ripening vegetables. Flavor has a similar profile with the nutmeg being quite prominent with some horehound candy making its way in the back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Pretty decent pumpkin ale.

Tap at republic. Light copper with small head. Resin and cooked spice aroma. Sweet syrup taste and mouthfeel. Can taste clove but other spices are watered down. Spicy finish but without the waxy mouthfeel I wanted. Average pumpkin.

ROBC3366 (649) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Hazy amber orange color. Small creamy beige head. Light grainy malt aroma. Notes of ripe fruit and cinnamon. Toasted malt flavor has a spicy backdrop. Hints of cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg. Overall, pretty mainstream as pumpkin ales go. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Disagree with the lower scores here. There’s all the requisite spices, for better or worse, but this stands slightly apart from the crowd because of the beautiful dark amber color and a vegetal note (think squash) in the aroma and flavor that is not present in the majority of pumpkin beers, giving this another layer of complexity and yumminess."

Bottle. Pours an orange/brown with a white head. Some spiciness, light nutmeg and cinnamon, in the aroma and taste. Not a lot of pumpkin in this one. A nice beer, but not as pumpkin pie forward as it could be.

ScoWRee (381) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours a light brown,iced tea color. Nice tan foamy head. Aroma is spicy, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste has the bite of crisp hops. Lots of spice, a hint of pumpkin.

Not bad! Good smooth medium-thick body. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice hints of pumpkin, cinnamon, and perhaps some clove. Not bitter at all. Lightly sweet.

tectactoe (1851) - Michigan, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle: Dingy copper color with a slightly beige head on top that wisps away before long to a thin collar. Aroma is very weak. Grainy, light pumpkin spice, nutmeg, maybe some cinnamon. Not as clove or ginger heavy as other autumn spiced beers, but the spice here is almost *too* light. Some bready malt. Taste is a little metallic, grainy, & full of toasted biscuit. Light nutmeg & cinnamon, but kind of watery on the palate & a little astringent in the finish. Pretty mediocre pumpkin beer. Just way, way too light.
