Copper with a thin white head that’s 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.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 5, 2010
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.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2015 Intrigued by this at the 2015 Lakeshore Beverage Trade Show in Chicago, so I was generously offered a 12 oz. bottle to enjoy once more at home. Poured to a mini Czech-pils glass, showing a clear, coppery amber color, with a frothy, persistent layer of tan head foam, and lacing of clingy ribbons & spots. The nose presented some caramel apple sweetness to start, then a perfumey, expressive, and balanced blend of pie spices, with an additional scent of pumpkin puree. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste added a bit of estery tanginess, moderate, earthy bitterness, and a touch of alcohol warmth to the finish. Sometimes I’ve missed with Point offerings, but this was a successfully balanced & tasty seasonal. Next time on tap at Miller’s Ale House in Lombard, IL.. Same clear, coppery amber and presentable head & lacing, with an aroma of expressive pie spices highlighting cinnamon & clove, with mellower nutmeg toward the back. Pumpkin was more evident in the taste, along with a medium, earthy bitterness. Same successful outcome.

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.

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

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!

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.
