12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark copper with a very tiny fizzy head. It almost seems like the cap wasn’t seated properly or maybe it is just under carbonated. Either way not very impressive. The aroma is quite nice and tends to be somewhat heavy on the molasses and cinnamon. There is almost a little roast with it. Reallly good spice to this one and it doesn’t overwhelm in the smell. Good balance. The flavor is quite nice as well. Brown sugar and caramel up front with a touch of cinnamon. There is a really nice malt character but sweetness is kept in check. No hops really at all but there is a mild bitterness in the finish. Nice, full mouthfeel ending with a touch of sweetness. Overall, a really nice pumpkin ale. The spices are not too overwhelming and you can really taste the malt. Well done.

Pours a dark orange body with a thin white head. I get the cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg usually associated with pumpkin ales, but this is not overly sweet. Well done.

Thanks to my beer buddy, Big D, I love trying these beers this time of the year. Although, I am not a big fan of the pumpkin beers, this one had good flavors, up there with Dogfish Head Pumpkin. Hints of pumpkin flavors in the beer, the pumpkin flavor doesn’t overtake the flavor (I like that). Love the label on this one---Thank again D!!

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.

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.

Bottle. Orange-brown in color. Light amber head. Aroma, spicy, pumpkin pie. Taste like a nice pumpkin pie, a tad funky after taste.
