12 oz. bottle from Dilly Cafe. Pours a clear orange-amber with a finger of off-white head that lasts for a surprisingly long time. Aroma of pumpkin, apples, brown sugar, nutmeg, and allspice. Flavor is pretty much the same. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts smooth and even fruity and finishes more spicy. A little uneven but not a bad pumpkin ale.

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.

Poured an amber orange color with aromas of light pumpkin pulp malt, and some all spice. Flavors are malt forward with light pumpkin pulp and some spices on the back end. Not overly spiced just enough light pumpkin, wish there was some more.

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

Poured a dark red amber with a thin head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice was noticeable, but not as fragrant as others. Taste mostly pumpkin with hints of the syrup and cinnamon. Spices begin to overpower with each sip. Very light and leaves a dry after taste in your mouth.

Big flavor in first sip fades real fast. By third sip the thin palate show this brew doesn’t have the staying power if a good pumpkin or fall ale

jcartamdg (2003) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours a deep brown with a paper thin white head. Aroma of brown sugar and caramel malt, pumpkin pie spices. Taste is very sweet, caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg etc. a bit too sweet for me. Very thin in body.

I can’t get these punkin beers; they’r rather dull and usually have more spices than punk, if any. Spices abound in this one too. Yep, these beers need more co2, tartness, sugar and less dullness. Nit impressed.

12oz bottle from Kroger in upper arlington. Amber pour with a thin light tan head. Aroma is malt, pumpkin spice. Tastes are cinnamon, nutmeg, clove with sweet grain. Little metallic.
