Bottle:   Deep amber, moderate foamy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Nutmeg and allspice on the nose, slight cinnamon and general pumpkin pie filling.   Soft pumpkin pie on the tongue, smidgen of crust and whipped cream.   Seems to be better than most in thats it has a good amount of flavor.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Spicy finish, good malt background, very enjoyable.   Simple, good flavor profile, and very refreshing.   Wishing it were Autumn right now.   Thanks Bob for the bottle!

Dark orange-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some nice cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin notes. The flavor is a mix of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice pumpkin ale.

(12oz bottle) fairly cloudy deep copper, fine tan edge bubbles. Nose of real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, almost like a pumpkin cookie. Taste of pumpkin mash, fruity yeast esters, cinnamon, nutmeg, touch of clove. An excellent pumpkin beer.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Picked up a four pack at Discount Liquors in Waukesha, WI. Pours a dark copper colored brew with a thin beige head that has some nice lacing. Aroma of mostly nutmeg and clove with a hint of caramel. Taste is medium bodied, a touch spicy with flavors or caramel, nutmeg and white pepper. Finish is semi-sweet, spiced, with a lingering nutmeg and white pepper aftertaste. Very drinkable.

Geez, where to start? This is everything I love and hate about pumpkin beers. It smells awesome - cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin - everything is good so far. Flavor is the same, but so heavy and cloying that it’s almost undrinkable.

nimbleprop (5205) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 4, 2014
12oz goblet at The Long Room. Pours a hazy amber with some creamy, off white head. Nose is huge with pie spices, all spice, clove, ginger, lots of brown sugar, some toasted marshmellow, some vanilla. Flavor is the same, lots of spice, some artificial flavoring, some roasted root veg too. A little one note for me. A touch boozy too.

The body was dark copper with a yellowish head. The nose has nutmeg and pumpkin. There is a little caramel. The taste is pumpkin rind and nutmeg. The finish is a little woody. This is a little too much vegetable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright caramel-amber color with a huge creamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was semi sweet with strong nutmeg and moderate cinnamon and toasted caramel. The flavor was sweet caramel, apple, strong cinnamon and nutmeg and a fairly strong pumpkin element. The finish was medium length tangy caramel and spice. Fairly full bodied. Really tasted quite a bit like a pumpkin pie. Excellent.
