Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium brown with a slight orange hue and a large (2-3 finger) off white rocky head that had decent retention and fair lacing that stuck to the glass throughout.
The aroma was mild of toasted barley malt, a mild herbal hop and a doughy yeast with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin.
The taste was very lightly sweet with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon at first and moderately bitter with a strong taste of pumpkin rind and clove at the finish. The flavor lasted an average time with the bitter flavor lingering well beyond any of the other flavors.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body, watery and a little dry in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall this brew has so much bitter spice flavor that it just overwhelms all the other flavors in this beer.

Clear copper pour, ok head, head retention, light lace. Ok, I hated this beer at first but after cellaring the soy sauce tastes seemed to mellow. Aroma is ok but still a bit soy saucey, maybe even like smoked bacon a bit but more like smoked soy sauce. Its in taste even as well, and I remember now I compared it to beef jerky,it still tastes like this in a not so good way. Has some caramel sweetness otherwise,light spices. Not great.

Wow this was unexpectedly bad. Dark orange pour with a white head. Funky spice aromas. Flavor is faint pumpkin with a strange artificial flavor-perfume-cologne sharp finish. Very unpleasant. What a sad waste of pumpkins!

9/2/2010. From bottle. Dark orange with a white head. Aromas of spice, malt and light fruit. Malty flavors with spices showing. I’m not picking up much of the pumpkin though.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a off white head. Taste pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.

12 ounce bottle. 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.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy orange amber pour with a clutching foamy head. Light pumpkin flavors. Unexpected notes of bile and nail polish remover. Not appealing but at least not the standard Pumpkin Ale.
