On tap from memory. My favorite Pumpkin beer. Pours amber. Smells of cinnamon and pumpkin pie. Taste is spicy, slightly sweet and roasted malt. Well balanced. Fun beer.

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.

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.

A very nice pumpki brew. The nose is of cinnamin, nutmeg, and pumpkin. A very smooth mouthfeel. An excellent fall beer.

Draft at the brew pub. Pours a apple cider color. Little bit of lacing. Nice spicy aroma as it warmed up. Tastes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Very nice beer. Highly drinkable. Both my wife and I agree that the 2008 version is better then 2007.

Good initial pumpkin smell, which then turns barnyard later.
Low carbination, possibly due to the growler.

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.

On draft at Olde Peninsula brewpub. A good pumpkin beer with lots of "all spice" that give it a pumpkin pie aroma and flavor. Pretty good.

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.
