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.

Draft. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aroma and taste are spices with some malt and pumpkin.

tectactoe (2299) - Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Tap @ Olde Peninsula: Hazy copper-amber & sunburst gradient with a bubbly, beige film & collar that leaves some nice lacing behind. Aroma of spicy cinnamon, creamy nutmeg, mild potpourri, & a toasty malt background. Lighter hints of ginger & vanilla towards the back-end. Taste is heavily cinnamon *& ginger, very well spiced with lighter inclusions of nutmeg, toasted bread, & crispy, crackery malts. Some slight earthy potpourri spice brings on a touch of bitterness in the finish. Thin bodied. Not bad.

Pailhead (5062) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate ginger, lighter nutmeg, faint pumpkin, and cinnamon. It’s a slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with mild caramel and brown sugar. The Irish has moderate-heavy ginger, light nutmeg, allspice, and a touch of cinnamon. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Draft to taster at Olde Peninsula. Looks solid; a hazy golden orange with foamy creme head. Smells of pumpkin and related spices, much like pumpkin pie. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

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.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2010
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.

tsetlock (66) - Hartland Twp, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Good initial pumpkin smell, which then turns barnyard later. Low carbination, possibly due to the growler.

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.
