Draft. Nutmeg, light cinnamon and pumpkin malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin malt flavor with a strong ginger finish. Very smooth. A hit even with my wife who has hated almost every beer (except for the ultra-sweet lambics) she has ever tried.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2012 Draft sample (twice) at Jungle Jims. They had sold out or I would have gotten more than a sample. This pumpkin beer is on par with Pumking (my fave). Great depth of flavor with a rich, silky mouthfeel. Well done. I liked it enough to buy a growler too.

Bottle: pours a nice brown color with a tan head. Aroma of wonderful cinnamon and nutmeg. The pumpkin hits you when you taste it. Well done, great example of a fall seasonal. I love the stuff this brewery is doing.

Out of the 12oz bottle. Acquired in a trade and enjoyed at fridge temp in a snifter. Half a finger off-white head that fades fast. Deep amber color. Nice and hazy. Scent is full of tons of nutmeg and cinnamon. Hint of sweet molasses. Taste is loaded with pumpkins but it’s sort of muted / cheap tasting. It’s not all that powerful of a taste profile..sort of cutting corners pumpkin taste. Almost no spices and an overly sweet finish with this rotten apple fast. Medium body.

Ar: Cinnamon, a hint of toasted malt. Ap: Orange, clear - small white head with poor retention and a thin ring of foam. T: Deep caramel and brown sugar, some squash flavor - medium-sweet, cinnamon and nutmeg, a bit of allspice - finish has some anise - low bitterness. P: Medium body, medium carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: Good session pumpkin ale - has good malt flavor, spicing, and a pleasant amount of sweetness.

Got this in a pint for the brewery tour. Wished I had picked any other (did tasting after tour). No head, not much aroma, very little flavor profile. Seemed like I was drinking the uncarbed/unseasoned wort. Slight pumpkin in the background, otherwise tasted of malt and water.

12 oz bottle - pours copper with no head. Flavor is cinamon, caramel and pumpkin. Festivily autumnal. Sweet and spicy. Watery with a lingering spiciness. Glad I tried it but will not repeat.

This beer does not disappoint. Enough flavor but does not over do it. Really impressed with this brewery.

Amber beer out of the bottle with a thick, foamy beige head. Nice spicey pumpkin beer nose with lots of nutmeg, cinnimon and pie spice. Very smooth mouthfeel. Very flavorful beer with lots of pumpkin, cinnimon, nutmeg, pie crust and the flavor that reminds me of the pumpkin raisen cookies that my mom makes in the fall. This is a very nice pumpkin seasonal.
