Not my favorite pumpkin ale, but a nice, easy drink nonetheless. Slight pumpkin and even fainter cinnamon.

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!

12oz sampled with a few friends. Pours amber with a small ring of off white lace. Aromas strong of pie spices. Think cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel. The flavor follows the aromas.... Very spicy overall but finishes somewhat sweet with caramel and a touch of pumpkin flavor. Nice pumpkin beer, but not my thing.

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

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

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

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pours hazy deep orange with no head to speak of. Standard pumpkin ale aromas with requisite spice notes. Flavor follows suit with a bit of breadiness in the finish. A decent, but unremarkable pumpkin.

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

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.

On tap. Hazy copper color with a thin head that dissipates completely. Aromas of sweet malt and pumpkin spice. Flavors are flimsy--muted pumpkin, cinnamon, a slight herbal tone and muted hops. Thin, fizzy mouthfeel. Not really very impressive.
