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.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2014
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.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle shared by Buddy. Aroma of juicy pumpkin, molasses, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pours reddish with a nice orange cream head. Taste is pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Nice clean and juicy mouthfeel throughout really set this apart. Wasn’t too sweet and it wasn’t bitter. Very easy drinking. Nice job.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Label info includes a nice description and its ABV which is 7.5%. No freshness date is noticeable. Appearance: From the aggressive pour I got a two finger tall soapy head which is light tan in color. It quickly fades leaving just a thin film covering with slightly thicker ring at the edge. Under this is a deep amber body with good clarity and nice visible carbonation. Smell: There is pie spice and sweet malt in the nose here with just a hint of herbal hops coming through as well. Taste/Palate: As the aroma foreshadows there is a sweet bready and almost pie crust like maltiness with a heavy hit of pumpkin pie spice. Cinnamon and nutmeg are the standouts. The pumpkin/squashy character is light but noticeable. The finish has plenty of lingering pie spice and a little herbal flavor with mild hop bitterness. I also notice a little of the 7.5% ABV here too. Notes: Overall I liked it and think it is a solid all-around Pumpkin Ale. With its ABV and heavy spicing you may not want too many in a row however.

Gription79 (2425) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Just cracked this open and the aroma is all ginger snaps. Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Big thanks to ughsmash. Lots of holiday spicing, warming, chocolate, toffee. There is any interesting creamy texture to the mouthful, pumpkin maybe? Very nice.
