12oz bottle. Clear orange color, thin beige head, fading to minimal. Solid ring of lace. Crisp, light carbonation. Easy to drink. Great pumpkin pie aroma, very nice spice... Interesting enough yet not overwhelming, makes me want to drink this with big gulps. Light sweet taste. Some oily mouthfeel. A good, drinkable, quasi-refreshing pumpkin ale. Hits the mark.

It says "Late October - November Release". It’s mid-August. Just FYI. Anyway, not as cloying or sweet as some pumpkin beers, and has a bit of hop bite. Most of the usual players - cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, etc - are present.

Bottle from a sixer purchased at Blacklick Wine & Spirits. Clear copper pour with a thick beige head. Malty nose with cinnamon, ginger and allspice notes. Malty flavor with cinnnamon, vanilla and ginger before a dry, crisp finish.

12 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a nice amber color, slightly syrupy, with a small off white head. The aroma was sweet, pumpkin pie with the standard spice blend. The flavor was initially sweeter with some spices. The pumpkin seemed to be from extract rather than fresh pumpkins. Midway some pie crust works its way in to the flavor sprinkled with a little molasses. This is never big like some of the imperialized pumpkin beers out there, just a decent drinking pumpkin beer.

Draft to taster at Rivertown. Looks decent; brownish-orange with good carbonation and creme lacing. Smells mild, but of pumpkin and spices. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

Aurelius (3906) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Squat longneck with a good label and cap. Dried apricot colored beer, foggy, without much head. Sweet, spicy, jammy apple butter aroma. Lightly sweet, a little vinegary - gives me the impression of pickled peaches. Allspice, nutmeg notes, dry, the bitterness is spice rather than hops. Medium to slightly light body. ABC, Bull Run.

emacgee (3873) - 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.

Pint on tap. Nose is cinnamon and a hint of caramel and pumpkin. Tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg and too much other pied spices with some tea leaf caramel and maybe some pumpkin. Near-medium body has average carbonation and is to the sweet side.

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.
