Its spicy aroma and slightly cloudy light amber color is very attractive for a pumpkin ale. There is subtlety in both the body and hops that carries the pumpkin spices well. Very quaffable and makes a good half of a black-and-tan.

Poured amber. Smells like a windmill cookie. The hotter spice notes are what made it good for me. NIce medium body and nice hops. Not a big pumpkin ale fan, but I regulary enjoyed having one of these in the rotation when I visited OP.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Clear rusty orange. Nose of potpourri pumpkin spice and pie with a little bit of black pepper. Flavor is sharp and peppery, almost meaty like jerky or pepperoni mixed in with the pumpkin spice. Vibrant and effervescent, peppery on the tongue, but still moderately thick and frothy for the style. Very good.

Despite the smokers next to me at the bar, the aroma was classic for the style with cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor and palate were also par for the course. A decent pumpkin brew.

very interesting pumpkin and spice aroma. i expected it to be a tad sweeter than it was, it wasn’t quite like pumpkin pie but more like canned spiced pumpkin. a very intriguing fall beer!

This was a really good beer. The aroma was of perfect pumpkin pie and the aftertaste also had that same flavor. It is a smooth beer and worth trying. Doesn't leave your mouth tasting like spices.
