(bottle) Pours a semi-hazy orange color with a thin white head and a little bit of lacing. Aroma smells exactly like my Mom’s homemade pumpkin bread, so I’ve gotta give this a 10 for the sentimentality alone. Big spice aroma with a ton of cinnamon showing up over the rest of the spices. Good presence of pumpkin here too. Could be a little toastiness as well which is a nice addition. Flavor is full of sweet pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Again,the cinnamon really shows here, and it’s a very welcome flavor. Have to ding the finish just a bit, as the beer kind of thins out and doesn’t linger nearly as long as I’d expect it to. Overall this is unmistakably a pumpkin and spice forward beer, which is something I definitely look for within this often highly-variable style. Never thought I’d type this but, well done, Point.

Tons of off-white lace all over my glass. Whoa, massive nutmeg/cinnamon bomb in the nose. Jesus, that smells great.

Taste delivers so much nutmeg & cinnamon! Pumpkin pie in my mouth. Good, yet falls short of the awesomeness shown in the aroma. Solid.

I’ve tried nearly a dozen pumpkin ales and this by far is my favorite. If you’re looking with a pumpkin ale that really captures the flavor of pumpkin pie then this is the beer for you. It has a creamy vanilla note to it that almost all other pumpkin ales I’ve tried are missing. This is heavy on the spice and pumpkin flavor, while still letting the taste of the beer through.

Bottle. Very pumpkiny and spicy, finishes with a very straightforward light beery flavor. Sweet flavors, initially sweet taste, finishes drier. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves. I really liked this beer. One of the best versions out there.

Thin-bodied, but overall it is hard to really fault this beer as a pumkin beer. It hits all the marks.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Pours clear, deep red-copper with a modest and weak tan head. More spicy in the flavor and feel than in the nose, particular the cinnamon component. Perhaps due to a richer malt base, even with rather bold spicing this pumpkin is not over-spiced. Those not liking cinnamon much will disagree; this has enough cinnamon to, I think, add a slight burn to the feel. O: tasty!

Amber pour with a beige head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice hits you during the pour. Taste is nutmeg and pumpkin. Nutmeg and cinnamon top the pumpkin flavor. An ok beer. Don’t even notice the 7.5 % Alc. Dry spicy aftertaste.

nearbeer (3677) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2013
12 oz. Clear orange-amber with a lasting disc of cream on top. Aroma is lots of cinnamon, caramel and hints of cherry cola. Taste is nearly all cinnamon up front, with cherry cola and then some occasional nice flashes of earthy caramelized pumpkin flesh. Some leafy hop almost makes an appearance as well. Nice little touch of roast on the finish. Medium body has low-average carbonation and is pretty well balanced. Another over-spiced pumpkin, but not as much as some.

Bottle. Again, Love pumpkin ales, but they seem to taste very similar. This one does too. Deep orange color, decent head. Aroma is spicy. Taste is spicy
