Pours a cloudy almost cider like appearance. The aroma is full of spices. Mild hints of pumpkin throughout. Not one of the sweeter pumpkin beers out there but quite tasty and goes down easy at 8%. Definitely worth a taste if you’re a big pumpkin fan like me!

7/10/2011 on cask @ Blind Tiger, NYC (2011-545)
Clear deep orange to amber or copper red beer, small to no head. Aroma: ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet sugary, some caramel. MF: no carbon, full body, pretty thick texture. Taste: bit of citrus, sweet malts, spices (ginger, cinnamon), pumpkin (?), banana, oranges. Aftertaste: banana peel, little bitter. Not bad, but no wow effect.

Bottle. Different label than that in the picture. Mine says 8.1% ABV. Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a smallish beige head. Cinnamon, caramel, nutmeg, cloves, and pumpkin in the pleasant aroma. Medium-bodied and creamy here and there on the way down. Caramel, sweet pumpkin pie, and cinnamon dominate the flavor. Some vanilla creaminess in the middle. A little cereal wheatiness at the end. Plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves from start to finish. Hints of warming alcohol are present throughout and only add to the depth of this brew.

Bottle from a trade with dmac. Pours cloudy dark copper color with tan head. Aromas of cinnamon and some nutmeg. Sweet caramel flavor with cinnamon and nutmeg. The pumpkin spice flavors are more subdued than most pumpkin beers. Medium body with moderate carbonating. Thanks Dave.

Moderate malt and spice aroma. Hazy dark orange color with a small off white head. Moderate hop bitterness in the beginning that fades for a spicy bitter finish.

Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out a moderate orange/brown color with an off white head. Aroma is of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin. Taste is much the same, nice balance of traditional pumpkin flavors, slightly spicy finish. This was a pretty tasty pumpkin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Impressive. Pours a deep amber orange color with a white foam head. Aroma of caramel, cinnamon, pumpkin, and earthiness. Has a sweet caramel taste with a nice gentle hop layer, nice booze level, and some cinnamon spice on the end. The pumpkin and spice is more muted in this brew - but it works for me.
