Pours a transparent orange amber with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, some toasty nutty notes and good cinnamon and nutmeg spice with a healthy dose of pumpkin. Starts with good fullness and nice malty sweetness and spice balance to accompany the pumpkin flavor. Finishes drier and bittersweet with some lingering allspice. A pretty good pumpkin ale.

Bottle. Poured clear dark orange color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Solid spicy pumpkin pie aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy pumpkin spicy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid seasonal beer.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Big pumpkin spice, cinnamon and nutmeg aroma with some honey sweetness. The flavor isn’t quite as good. Pumpkin, nutmeg, and a light sweetness. Not bad.

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; Pour is fairly murky dark golden / amber with a modest, fine bubbled white head in this glass; it retains poorly, frankly - the nose is subtle, but pleasant here. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and graham cracker come through , with a touch of caramel present. The flavor profile is initial modest bitter from the hop profile, moving to a more robust malty bready cinnamon , spicey, light pumpkin notes and finishing with more graham cracker and modest spicing here. For a subtle brew, it has a nice balance, feel, and hides alcohol well for me.

SamP01 (547) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Pours a cloudy dark orange with a quickly fading white head. Aroma of sweet pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, some cinnamon notes. Taste is sweet pumpkin spices, nutmeg with some malt and mild hops bitterness. A medium body with good carbonation. Has sweet pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg flavor, with some moderate hops bitterness on the end for balance. Overall has some back bone and flavor for a pumpkin ale, a good brew.

Best pumpkin. Taste is just like Thanksgiving dessert. Sad it is over but time for all Spring seasonals.

Pours a dirty orange with a thin white head. Aroma of nutmeg and sweet pumpkin pie. Typical pumpkin flavor with a spicy drying touch on the back end. Pretty light bodied and thin.
