Nicely pumpkiny and spicy, finishes with a very straightforward light beery flavor. Sweet flavors, initially sweet taste, finishes drier. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves. Pleasant mouthfeel - thick. I donít really know pumpkin ales, and they wouldnít be my go to beer, but this one is very pleasant.

Pours an orange copper with an off white head. Strong pumpkin spice aroma with some caramel. Taste is sweet spicy pumpkin pie. Slick texture. Pretty nice pumpkin beer.

Copper colored liquid with a tallish beige head. No doubt this is a pumpkin pie spice brew from the first sniff. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger all seem to prevail in the nose. Iím looking for either a little crust or malt, but Iím not finding much. Still a nice spicy aroma. This is a bit rough when cooler, and slightly mellows as it warms. Initial cinnamon bite, followed by a little bit of toasted malt. Reminds me of the slightly burnt edge of crust. Quite thick and nearly mouthcoating. This is more a sipper than one to quaff. The finish and linger have a burnt edge that continues from the prior thoughts. Slightly warming. I like it, in a small dose dessert kind of way.

bookman10 (641) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Pours a nice orangish-brown with small head. Intense aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg. Flavors are pumpkin spice with roasted grain and bitter hop finish. Just a bit too sweet to be entirely successful and a bit thin in the palate. Worth a try.

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.

CanIHave4Beers (3264) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Pours a reddish orange with a small tight head. The aroma is spicy with some pumpkin pie and fruit, fairly nice all around. The flavor is more pumpkin pie spice with a fair bit of booze but a rich maltiness that never really seems terribly sweet. Itís pretty tasty beer, but I think it would be a lot better at a lower gravity.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle. Poured a slight hazed brown with an off-white head that settled to a ring. Sweet aroma of brown sugar and light spice and pumpkin. The flavor found pumpkin and caramel. Light to medium body, sweet throughout, and a caramel aftertaste.

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Bottle from Caponeís. Copper pour with half a finger of head. Nose is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, with the same in the flavor, some caramel malt, and a medium palate. Not as bold, complex, or unique as some other pumpkin offerings, but not bad at all.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2011
On tap at Caponeís. Poured an amberish color with a smaller sized head. Yep, a pumpkin beer - pumpkin with spices. This one tilted more towards pumpkins vs. spices which is what I like.
