Copper with a thin white head thatís gone much too soon. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon along with sweet and spicy malt. Taste of pumpkin pie with pumpkin, cinnamon and strong nutmeg and some noticeable alcohol to boot. Finishes up dry and very spicy. Decent.

Sampled at the 2009 Great Nebraska Beer Festival. Pours dark amber with a huge spiced aroma of pumpkin pie spices. The flavor has big pumpkin pie spices as well but the beer is slightly chemical at the finish. It seems schizophrenic. Not something I would ever drink again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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, thereís beer and hops here too
Palate: The body is medium, it has a nice mouthfeel, spice, and a lengthy finish
This is actually a really nice autumn beer. Itís 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Plum color with a pink head, and a thick head at that. Great aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and allspice. Tastes like pumpkin, cream, and spice with a healthy bite. One of the best pumpkin ales Iíve had. Good, bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours deep amber/Orange with off-white head. Aroma has everything a pumpkin pie has...pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and even doughy crust. Flavor is much the same but add some malty sweetness and it is perfected!! You can even taste the crust in this beauty! Mouthfeel is medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall, I love everything about this brew, the maltiness, the flavors, the balance....EXCELLENT brew!!!
