COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perennial favorite at our Brewery Halloween party, this reddish amber ale is perfect for fall. Real pumpkin adds a full body and sweetness, while deep roasted malts lend a toasty finish to this subtly spiced brew.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2011 Appearance- Medium brown with whitish head. Aroma- Pumpkin and hops. Taste- matches the aroma, pumpkin and hops. Mouth feel- light. Drinkability- smooth but you have to be in the mood for pumpkin.

Dacrza (486) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Situation: Halloween Eve watching Penn State-Michigan; still no defense for us, RichRod! Glassware: Yuengling pint... Appearance: Dark chestnut body (darker than expected with the typically stubborn Sam Adams off-white head... Aroma: pumpkin spice leaps forth; some other underlying hops and spices are present as well... Palate: medium-bodied, lightly oily in texture; inoffensive in its profile; a flourish early, flat late... Taste: more than a bit malty, although the pumpkin spice may have something to do with that; enjoyable softened by the malt profile... Overall: I have little interest in vegetable-infused eer, but for a holiday, I will admit that the beer as the maltiness to substitute for an Octoberfest and stand out a bit in its uniqueness...a second bottle tonights reveals a bit more drinkability and pleasure...

smells like hands holding pennies. nutmeg, grain, not too pumpkin-y, but at least it doesn’t taste like butter.

stangger (583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Faint aroma of spices. Unexpected off-flavors; too much spice, no pumpkin, odd taste. Astringent with a rotten aftertaste.

This beer has a strong vanilla smell with a with a hint of cinnamon. Has a small head with decent lacing. Has a awesome dark red color to it. The beer has a strong spicey cinnamon beginning flavor with a pumpkin , nutmeg aftertaste. This is a full-bodied beer with medium carbonation. Really enjoyed this well rounded beer with a fantastic finish.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Pours a shining amber with an offwhite head. Smells of pumpkin spice, allspice and all. The flavor is not too overwhelming as it is more pumpkin then spice. Smooth autumn finish.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle Pours a clear amber with a beige head. The head fades nicely and laces well. Aroma is good mostly pumpkin, spices, some vanilla. Smells like a good pumpkin pie as it should. Has an average carbonation. The flavor is good, nice spice back bone and ginger snap cookie like. Has a medium body. The texture is sticky. Has a great mouthfeel. A real good finish with a pleasing aftertaste. I like the pumpkin beers and some are over done but this one hits the mark perfectly. Exactly what I think the beer should be. very well done.

pours a deep caramel color...interestingly seems to have light rosey hue as well.,.with a medium tan head...decent lacing and retention. aroma has some pumpkin pie spices...clovey...and also some caramel and earthiness...autumnal aroma! flavor is very malty...bready, caramely, with some spice and hops rounding it out. not much pumpkin flavor present though. mouthfeel is silky and the finish lingers with spice and subtle hops. ok but not great...has a boring and cheap quality and taste about it like a poorly made homebrew from a crappy kit.
