Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of pumpkins and spice. The flavor is sweet, pumpkins, and spice. Good beer.

This is a great autumn beer to help you get ready for the long winter.
The amber color screams Halloween and the taste is even better.
Rich taste yet very smooth finish with a solid head,
Itís hard to wait for this beer to be brewed, year after year.
Pumpkin spices are pungent in this fine amber ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent brown sugar, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, and clove aroma. Could smell all of these, but all were weak. Smelled watery. Good long finish with a taste that rests on the tongue. Seemed a bit thin. I wouldíve like more malt and spiceness in this one. Probably could drink a lot of these at a tailgate party. Wouldnít get drunk as fast.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
served at NYC Great World Beer Festival (a Brewtopian Event). pours a translucent orange-gold hue with a small, white carbonated head, that lasts but leaves little lacing. the aroma is lightly spiced. some cinnamon, some nutmeg. Iím big on the nutmet. The mouthfeel is relatively creamy and the flavors are considerably sweet. a hint of pumpkin, bready yeast, cinnamon, nutmeg, wheat. the flavors are not semi-well-balanced and finish dry.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Deep golden/amber beer. Creamy white head. Aroma of nutmeg and allspice. Also a light sugary sweetness and a nice caramel maltiness. Some zesty/spicy hop aroma as well that differentiates this from other pumpkin beers Iíve had recently. Flavour is a bit thin and hot though. Spices seem a bit stale and woody rather than bright. Decent malt profile but it tastes quite alcoholic for something that only rings in at 5% ABV. Herbal hop bitterness an the back. Meh, I could take it or leave it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Blue Dog Tavern. Pours an amber color, not much head. Faint aroma of spices and malts. Flavor was dominated by the pumpkin pie spices, although I could detect some pumpkin in there. An average pumpkin ale at best.
