Dark copper pour with creamy white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie-spices, pumpkin, and hint of caramel. Pumpkin pie flavor with caramel backbone. One of the better I’ve had in this style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours murky rosy amber with a thin filmy off-white head. Nose is PUMPKIN PIE! Holy balls...this might be more pumpkin pie than Pumpking...lots of whipped creaminess, pumpkin puree, pie crust, clove, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg--lots of spicing that balances out the pumpkin sweetness. Taste is the same, though much heavier on the spices. A little warmth on the finish shows the 7.5% a bit. Medium-bodied, a little slick and oily, and well-carbonated. Wow. Only $6.99 a 4-pack and found this one in the mix-six area. I can’t imagine drinking more than one of these in a sitting, but if I want a pumpkin beer, this is probably it.

WOW! I was expecting the usual mild flavored boring pumpkin beer when I popped this open, but was I surprised! Aroma was very weak and I figured I was right. Pour was a nice light brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was stunning. Heavy pumpkin pie spices fill the mouth with cinnamon and nutmeg taking center stage. These spices have a nice sharp bite that plays well with the malty sweetness. Deliciously sweet and pumpkinny finish. Next year, once Pumking is sold out I will definitely seek this out!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark orange with minimal off-white head. Aroma of straight up pumpkin pie. Cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. Taste follows aroma exactly. Probably one of the better beers in this style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours autumn amber with a nice tan head on top. The aroma is light earthy pumpkin and spices as expected, pleasant. The flavor is similar on a light to medium body. The cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and the usual autumn spices with the light pumpkin flavor make up for it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!!!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle] Ruddy orange pour with a large amount of dense white head on top. Strong aroma of nutmeg, ginger and pumpkin pie spices. Taste is similar, with rich dark breads, pumpkin, dark brown sugar and allspice. Thicker palate than expected. Good balance. Hands down the best thing I have had from Point. Tasting notes from 12/2011.
