Pours a nice dark orange/copper color with a small off-white head. Aromas and flavors of pumpkin (obviously), spices and caramel malt. The body is a bit thin and finishes sweet. A very good pumpkin beer, but not one of the upper echelon pumpkin beers.

Dark amber with a light white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice, a little cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is caramel malt with some of the spice in the aroma. Finish is a little watery which takes away from the overall flavor a little. Still, nice pumpkin beer.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2013 Wow! Fantastic for pumpkin ale. I don’t know what it is but I am really fascinated with pumpkin beer. If I see one I must try it. So far my favorite in the style is the Brurey’s Autumn Maple the barrel aged version. I know it’s yams but same idea anyway. The spices are perfection. Aroma is rich pumpkin and spices. Alcohol is not listening. I am guessing it is because it is probably below 5%. Rogue if you are listing Please please please barrel age this beer.!!!! I have fun experimenting by blending different beers. I decided to blend this with Jolly Pumpkin La Parcela No.1 Pumpkin Ale. Now the Jolly Pumpkin La Parcela being the premiere beer in the equation I tried a number of different percentage blends and the one I liked the best was 65%/35%

Bottle. Like the orange bottle. Orangish copper color. Aroma is of spice and slightly sweet. Taste like, well, pumpkin pie. Not bad.

Looks dark, clear mahogany with a small amount of tan foam dissipating rather quickly. Aromas of pumpkin, molasses, and a little booze. It’s got a mild sweet pumpkin flavor, also malty and effervescent. Medium bodied and just a hint of bitterness in the finish. It’s a great pumpkin brew, not trying to be a pumpkin pie in a bottle, just showcasing the natural sweetness, although it is also just a touch vegetal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep slightly hazy orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma has some subtle pumpkin notes with most of the standard spices, cinnamon, nutmeg. Flavor starts with the same, a little vegetable-y with some spiciness, a bit on the potpourri side with a sweet finish. Medium body and a soft carbonation. A little heavy on that potpourri note but not bad

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on Christmas Eve 2012 with Kristen. Pours a semi clear dark amber copper with small ring of khaki head. Very pleasant nose of cinnamon, clove, and star anise, almost potpourri. Flavor is more pumpkin and earthy vegetal, but in a very good way, not the typical ’off flavor’ vegetal. Bitterness on the backside and the lingering aftertaste is not that good. Pumpking still reigns supreme!
