Bottle. Very pumpkiny and spicy, finishes with a very straightforward light beery flavor. Sweet flavors, initially sweet taste, finishes drier. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves. I really liked this beer. One of the best versions out there.

Onslow (1135) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Pour form a 12oz bottle. Deep orange/brown slightly cloudy brew with small tan head. Great aroma of earth, pumpkin and mild spices. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, an ineffable pumpkin quality and mild spices. Ends with a beautifully balanced bitterness that slakes the sweet pumpkin pie flavor and leaves the palate clean, save for a bit of ethanol. A remarkably good pumpkin brew!

I’m very impressed with the Whole Hog lineup, I hope they keep it going with other beer. Poured a semi cloudy amber colour with a huge frothy top. Instant nutmeg, pumpkin and cinnamon notes right away. Taste was nice and spicey, creamy and delicioso! No Pumking for sure, but it was damn good anyway!

Draft at Jerry’s. Amber with light beige head / Sweet nose of pumpkin, caramel, and spice / Medium body, soft carbonation, somewhat chewy, sweet, and sticky, with good balance and finish / Well balanced flavors of pumpkin, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove / Pretty much as advertised, and a nice job by Point.

Damico (2503) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
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.

HighlanderOne (989) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Poured from bottle. I smell pumpkin, apple and spice. Mahogany with a bit of a tan head. Well balanced flavors of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, banana, burnt caramel and a dash of pepper. Slight alcohol in the back. Mellow finish. Well done.

Delicious Pumpkin Ale. It has the unmistakable aroma of pumpkin and spice which is also apparent in the flavor, though not at all overdone. Slightly sweet, but only slightly. Very well balanced with a little bit of bitterness and a slight clove numbing sensation.

ben4321 (3807) - 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.

Bottle. Nice surprise here. Big pumpkin aroma, but exceptionally well integrated into the beer. Drinks very easily, not too sweet, but also sweet enough to fit the pumpkin pie moniker. (from notes)

Poured a deep orange color from the growler with aromas of pumpkin, spice, caramel and some light sugar. Flavors were mellowed sweet pumpkin and light spice. This was a pleasant surprise thanks Geiger for sharing.
