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

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark orange with minimal off-white head. Aroma of straight up pumpkin pie. Cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. Taste follows aroma exactly. Probably one of the better beers in this style.

12oz bottle from my man Neal. Pours a dark brown with an off white head. Big pumpkin cinnamon nutmeg and brown sugar taste. Great beer

jsmerig (1291) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Pours a rich brown with a fine off white head. Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg (essentially pumpkin pie). Taste has a balanced malt background offset with spices and some mild bitterness. There is a little bit of a flat light sourness that isnít quite pleasant. The mouthfeel is good ending dry, but with enough fllavor. The high ABV comes through a little.

nimbleprop (5204) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 4, 2014
12oz goblet at The Long Room. Pours a hazy amber with some creamy, off white head. Nose is huge with pie spices, all spice, clove, ginger, lots of brown sugar, some toasted marshmellow, some vanilla. Flavor is the same, lots of spice, some artificial flavoring, some roasted root veg too. A little one note for me. A touch boozy too.

Jesterdeal (1984) - 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. Wasnít too sweet and it wasnít bitter. Very easy drinking. Nice job.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 25, 2014
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 (5856) - 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 (2873) - 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 (2294) - 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 (28) - 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.
