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.

I was really excited to try this one since I look forward to the release of pumpkin beers each fall. The beer pours a orangish-brown color with a white head. The aroma is class pumpkin ale, with lots of pumpkin and nutmeg notes. The flavor is more of the same. I get a ton of pumpkin, along with the classic pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. I also get some caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not quite as good as Southern Tier Pumking, but a step above most of the pumpkin ales that are on the market.

Bottle courtesy of MaltDawg on 09/01/2010. Clear dark amber body with a large rocky off-white head. Sweet nutmeg, pumpkin and spice aroma. Sweet cinnamon, nutmeg, spice, and light pumpkin flavor. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

chickenflea (332) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light brown color with a small beige head that leaves a small ring and a bit of film. Nose is sweet, nutty malts with hints of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spicy. Palate is smooth and sticky with a nice light carbonation. Flavor is sweet nutty pumpkin up front with a stingy light hop note in the finish. Mild tinniness on the finish. Otherwise a solid beer.

Damico (2562) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2010
The color is a deep amber with a big huge, creamy head. The flavor is very subtle for a pumpkin, not the big forces of pumpkin and spice but a subtle mixture of this with smooth malts. The aroma is similar with malts and subtle spices.

mybrainhurts (352) - North Dakota, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Aroma is a festive mix of pumpkin pie spices, earthy malts, and toasted bread. Not as much pumpkin as I would have liked but it is present in flavor. Bready malts, cinnamon, coriander, and a hint of roasted brown sugar. Slightly sour and harsh at the finish and distracts a bit. Overall, not bad, not great.

WisconsinBeer (705) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2010
I was never a big fan of Sam Adams, but beers like this are warming me up to them. Bottle. Pours a deep brownish red color with medium carbonation and very little head. Flavor is rich malts, ripe fruits, pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie spice. Medium bodied with just a hint of mild sweetness. This is a solid beer, and ranks up there with the best pumpkin brews.

Tripplebrew (775) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Pours a clear amber with thin tan colored head. Aroma is earthy, metallic notes, a pepper pumpkin pulp. Flavor is a bit of caramel nut bread with pumpkin pulp and clove. Body is creamy but light with active carbonation. I took this thinking it was going to be anything great but I am pleasantly surprised. It is probably one of the better pumpkin beers I have had lately. A nice fall refreshment.

junon (410) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - SEP 15, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2013 Big pumpkin flavour.. Caramel. Spice. Dark crystalline appearance. Full bodied. So much so it really clings to your mouth from beginning to end. Even flow of flavours all the way through. Nice job.

A toasty, malty, cluster-you-know-what of pumpkin and spices. Pretty innocuous, the ale teases your palette with the idea that you should get more out of this seasonal brew. There is some light, negligible sweetness that is overshadowed by that damned burned bread flavor. Not too bad - and certainly better than Blue Moon or Jack’s Pumpkin - but that’s not entirely saying too much. When will they make a suitable pumpkin ale? The recipe may be buried alongside Jimmy Hoffa.

Bottle. Amber pour with thin head. Aroma is sweet pumpkin. Taste is pumpkin pie, baking spices and malts. Smooth finish. Nice.
