Pours a somewhat hazy reddish orange with no head. Aroma is pumpkin pie, spices, brown sugar. Flavor is pumpkin, spice, herbal, a little bitter. Medium body. What I really enjoyed about this beer was that it tasted like pumpkin, not like pumpkin pie spice; this is a problem I have with some other pumpkin ales but not here. This is a nice pumpkin ale for the fall.

Pours clear copper with almost no head. Nose of thanksgiving pumpkin pie. Taste is of spice, pumpkin, and bitter hop. Not bad! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RRistow12 (634) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Tasted from bottle. Color is cloudy brown with tan head. Aroma is definite cinnamon, moderate amount of pumpkin spice with some caramel malty notes. Taste is sweet up front with pumpkin, cinnamon, brown sugar. The cinnamon taste is very strong and continues throughout through the finish. Definitely a spicier pumpkin beer. Good but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Caramel color with a small light tan head that dissipates quickly. Caramel, brown sugar, with a little bit of cinnamon and vegetable aromas, not distinctly pumpkin though. Sweet malty dark sugar flavor with a bit of a spiced kick on the finish, again there is a little bit of a veggie taste but not exclusively pumpkin. Medium body, it is a good beer (and not sour like some of the others in the mix pack an obvious plus) but not very pumpkiny (a good thing maybe?)

Aroma: Pumpkin quite clear, along with clove and nutmeg aromas. Smells very much like pumpkin pie. Appearance: Light amber with no head. Taste: Medium sweetness with light bitterness in the beginning. Palate: Medium body, crisp texture, average carbonation, long sweet finish. Overall: Meh...too much spice here, which overpowers the pumpkin flavors, and the beer flavors.

Light orange pour. Interesting for a pumpkin. Lots of nutmeg, lots of spice, not a lot of pumpkin. More like a spiced ale, and would get a higher rating if the label matched the product.

Light brown foam. Mild pumpkin and spice flavor. More spice than pumpkin. One of the better pumpkin beers I have tasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bottle from Seth. Nose is nutmeg and pumpkin and taste is the same. Very similar to pumpkin pie with a little malt thrown in at the end. Great for the style but not something I'd drink more than one of since its so flavorful. ---Rated via my mouth

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!

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2012
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.
