12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy reddish orange with a decent biege head. Aroma of pumpkin, malt, and spices. Taste is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, malt, and brown sugar. Good for a pumpkin beer.

Gription79 (2285) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The pumpkin spices dominate, there is a woody character, dry, thin bodied, slight alcohol. Not bad, but it could use more balance.

emacgee (4057) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Pours a soft hazy red orange with one finger of off white head. Nose is soft and spicy, round and bready with notes of pumpkin flesh and squash. A little dry on the spice side in the flavor and pumpkin flesh definitely shows. Medium to light bodied.

mcberko (6737) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2012
12 oz. bottle, bonus’d to me by tstockstrom (thanks a lot, Chuck). Pours a hazy orange amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of dark, slightly caramelized brown sugar, pumpkin spices (nutmeg and cinnamon), and a bit of pumpkin puree. Flavour is fairly light and restrained, dominated by the aforementioned spices, some dark brown sugars and a bit of pumpkin puree. Light, slightly sweet and spicy. Solid pumpkin ale.

4 oz draft sampler pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of malts and pumpkin. Taste is the malts, spice and pumpkin.

Dogbrick (8343) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2012
This beer pours a brownish-amber color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of nutmeg and pumpkin. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, spice and faint pumpkin. The finish is sweet with a malt and cinnamon aftertaste. Not very pumpkiny but a decent beer.

12oz bottle, I admittedly had this a bit too cold, as it was only 42* outside during trick or treat, its your standard pumpkin beer though, not overly sweet like pumking, not spice dominate in anyway, just a good solid balanced pumpkin beer.

daknole (9260) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Copper pour at GABF. Lots of roasted squash up front with some very nice pumpkin pie spices, and even a hitn of sugary crust! Flavor is lightly sweet, spice, pumpkin. Pretty good example of the style!

12oz bottle poured in imperial pint glass. Pours a hazy copper color with a decent off white head that fades to a thin ring of bubbles all too quickly. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, molasses, vanilla, and spice. Very pumpkin pie like. The pumpkin, cinnamon and molasses, as well as caramel really come through in the taste. However it is very sweet and sugary, not unlike actual pumpkin pie. Body is slighty thick for an ale, but creamy and smooth. Very well balanced! Perfect amount of carbonation, active but without stinging the tongue. Great cinnamon and pumpkin aftertaste. Overall a very well done pumpkin ale! One of the better ones I’ve had!

Tried this beer on tap at the GABF un Denver, CO. I like pumpkin beers, but this is not a good one. Overly sweet, barely any pumpkin flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
