I usually don't like pumpkin ales but this one is an exception. It isn't overwhelmingly pumpkin flavor although the pumpkin is present. Clean drinking with natural taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted from a 12oz bottle into a nonic pint glass, thanks Trefoyl! It poured a slightly hazy orange amber colour with peristent white foam and lace, leaving substantial pumpkin and spice trub behind in the bottle. Aromas of malt, nutmeg, allspice, some alcohol but not in a bad fusel way. Nice flavours of a solid amber ale base plus pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices again. Medium body and carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. Despite was some other reviewers have said, my bottle had very well-concealed alcohol. Obviously an 8.1% abv beer is gonna be more warming than a standard 4-5% abv beer, but it was not unpleasant. I don’t always enjoy spiced pumpkin brews, but this is a very well-crafted and tasty one for sure. Recommended.

Little pumpkin flavor, mostly in aftertaste but there is a fall spice present throughout. Malty, carbonation without much head. Creamy mouth feel, finishes dry. Amber ale with a slight fall spice sums this beer nicely; nothing special and would not buy again.

Bottle. Burnt dark orange/tan. Aroma is pumpkin spice and cinnamon. The taste follows adding sweet brown sugar and caramel. Boozy notes show up a little. Medium carb and body. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drinking this with my wife on the 25th anniversary of the day we met! In bottle at the Dilworthtown Inn in Chester County, PA. This beer is the perfect early Fall. One of the better pumpkin beers I have had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Glass: Weyerbacher tulip.
Appearance: Hazy brown leaning amber body with a dense light tan head on top.
Aroma: The aroma hints of sweet malts, hints of pumpkin and mild spices. Clove and ginger come to mind with a dash of cinnamon.
Taste: Hints of slightly tart pumpkin up front into a clean mid-taste that leads to cinnamon and nutmeg followed by sweet malts giving caramel flavor. Finish is mildly spicy and lingers a moment.
Palate: Creamy body, mild to moderately carbonated.
Overall: This tastes a little congested, murky. It’s not bad, but it doesn’t stand out in the (large) sea of pumpkin beer.

Bottled. Pours an orange copper. Aroma is cinnamon, pumpkin spice. Flavor is a lot of cinnamon, nutmeg, less pumpkin spice compared to other pumpkin beers. Decent.

Voodoo (448) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours an ice tea color with a thin white head which disappears quickly leaving a naked brew with no head. Aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg. Taste is very dry with a quick hit of pumpkin, little spice then booz......a bit of metallic in the back end.
