I like this beer! It is a lighter more sessionable pumpking. Pours a dark amber orange with a descent white fluffy bubbly head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg ,and pumpkin. Flavor is the same but stronger with a touch of whipped cream. Body is a bit light and has some descent lacing, but overall its a good pumpkin beer with actual pumpkin used in the beer. Gets a bit better when it warms.

ben4321 (3812) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/3/13

Aroma: The nose is full of autumn spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.), with malts and hops
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark-orange color, with an off-white head, and some spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is loaded with the spices described in the nose, there’s beer and hops here too
Palate: The body is medium, it has a nice mouthfeel, spice, and a lengthy finish
Overall Impression: This is actually a really nice autumn beer. It’s really more of a cinnamon/nutmeg beer than a pumpkin beer, but it is tasty none-the-less. I really enjoyed it quite a bit. Great fall beer.

Nice copper color, just a bit hazy, this as plenty of spices and tastes just like pumpkin pir. te ale underneath is a bit weak and carbonation just a tad high.

On tap at Cave's. Brown orange pour with a very small white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Really nice out first, but then just too much. Taste is the same. Great at first and now just too damn much.

Bottle. Pours with a hazy orange body with an off-white head. Aromas are nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins and graham cracker. Flavors are a bit bland and a bit nutty and malty. Graham cracker, nutmeg, cinnamon. Medium bodied, and dry. Probably better than I was expecting.

Poured copper-gold with decent head. Aromatics of sweet pumpkin pie spices. Great flavor! A nice surprise with Thanksgiving this year. An interesting discovery - 2012 GABF winner.

12 oz. bottle. Shared with others. Pours a thin, short duration off white head, over a hazy amber (SRM 10) body.....nose is heavy spices, with cinnamon, nutmeg dominating......taste is heavy cinnamon, nutmeg,allspice, pumpkin light caramel/toffee sweetness throughout with minimal hop....mouth feel medium, thick, alcohol hidden, carbonation medium. This is a very heavily spiced pumpkin ale, with the spice dominating all else. I do not care for this much spice ina beer. BJCP 6/3/10/4/5

Just cracked this open and the aroma is all ginger snaps. Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Big thanks to ughsmash. Lots of holiday spicing, warming, chocolate, toffee. There is any interesting creamy texture to the mouthful, pumpkin maybe? Very nice.

Draught at Andys Corner bar. Very comparable to Southern Tier Pumking but better. Dark copper orange in color, with a little off white head. Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Pumpkin pie spice aroma, tastes so close to pumpkin pie. Light malty hoppy notes. Light pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon flavor with light bitterness notes. Full bodied. Finish is malty and dry and enjoyable. Very drinkable.

12oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy brownish-orange with a thin head that quickly fades into a ring around the edge of the glass. Nothing in the way of lacing. Aroma is one of the best I’ve experienced in a pumpkin beer. Spices like clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon are there but there is an added sweetness. Almost like whipped cream. The taste carries the same characteristics as the aroma and again that whipped cream touch the makes it perfect. There is also a little bit of caramel and never does the beer become too sweet and cloying. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky and finishes pretty clean. Overall, a really amazing pumpkin beer that more people need to try. I wish more could be made like this.
