Vigorous pour needed to create head; head creamy but short lived; wonderful pumpkin pie aroma; oily texture; nice upfront but drops off and no finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Copper pour with a white head. Aroma is straight up pumpkin pie and the flavor doesnít disappoint either. Sweet but not too sweet, nice balance of spices and pumpkin. Very drinkable.

Mora2000 (5781) - 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.

alobar (2805) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2014
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 Iíve had in this style.

drpimento (2267) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Poured this at a perfect temperature with a small fizzy head that promptly disappeared, no lace and a clear brown color. Aroma is spicy pumpkin pie and more bold than the flavor. This is one of the better pumpkin beers where the flavors are not so overpowering. There is some balance; malts can be tasted; still not one of my favorite kinds of beers but this isn't bad. Good body. Decent finish with a very slight hint of alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerCoff4025 (25) - Iowa, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Poured from bottle into a tulip glass. Deep dark orange color with a small off white head. Very well done pumpkin beer, one of the better ones Iíve had. A lot of pumpkin pie flavors (i.e. cinnamon, nutmeg, cream) and packs a nice punch with a 7.5% ABV. Pairs well with the pumpkin cookie Iím munching on, would highly recommend for anyone chasing down a good pumpkin beer.

HonusWagner (1428) - Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2014
A really solid pumpkin beer with a caramel maltiness that reminds me of SA Octoberfest. The pumpkin is present but not overpowering. Good beer in a style I donít care for.

Appearance is deep amber and large white head. Aroma is sweet. Taste is heavy on the pumpkin. Overall a good pumpkin beer.

Bottle from trevor. Pours orange/brown with off white head. Spice rack in a bottle...smells exactly like pumpkin pie. Sweet pumkin pie flavor, cinnamon and clove. Tastes natural...no artifical aftertaste. Nice

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2014
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 canít imagine drinking more than one of these in a sitting, but if I want a pumpkin beer, this is probably it.

Pailhead (4900) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of huge pumpkin pie. The might be the most pumpkin pie smelling beer Iíve had...moderate spice with ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice mixed with light whip cream, graham cracker, and roasted pumpkin. There isnít any lacing. It pours a hazy reddish-orange with a one finger beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of brown sugar that is followed up in the middle by light roasted pumpkin. The finish has moderate-heavy cinnamon, light-moderate nutmeg, ginger, allspice, graham cracker, and a touch of whip cream. Itís medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, the aroma is out of this world. For my preferences, the flavor is too heavy on the cinnamon in the finish. Tone the cinnamon down and this is probably one of the best pumpkin beers Iíve had. Even with the strong cinnamon, itís still very tasty. If you like pumpkin pie, youíll be hard pressed to not like this beer.
