Aroma of caramelized sugar, honey-baked ham, brown sugar, maple, and of course pumpkin pie. Color is flat translucent deep amber, flavor is spicy and hot, pumpkin, butternut squash, not very vegetal. I think it could use a little aging to mellow out the alcohol. 6 pack from Moon Wine and Spirits.

Very nice version with a clear amber and small head. The aroma is autumn in mom’s kitchen with a roast chicken and pumpkin pie. The flavor is similar with the spices not overpowering. It has a nice bit of burn to it. Nice on those cool Fall nights.

I like this one a bit sweet at first but leaving it in the fridge for a couple of weeks has mellowed it out very well. Medium bodied with little to no head on the pour, but has a nice crisp mouth feel for a pumpkin beer. I can smell nutmeg, cloves, orange peel, raisins, and slight pumpkin pie in there as well. I can taste the pumpkin first and foremost mixing in with the cinnamon and nutmeg. I can also taste slight ginger and cloves mixing in as well. Great beer I highly recommend it.

12 oz bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a deep amber brown with no head. Initial aroma is not pleasant-very metallic. Eases as it warms to reveal a light sweetness over the spice, dominated by clove. Bit of zip, presumably from the cinnamon. Taste is spice up front, then yielding to an unpleasant off aftertaste. Just seems like this beer hasn’t come together yet (label notes a bottling of Aug 24, 2010). Overly carbonated and thin. Not going down easy. Not great. While I love the arrival of all the pumpkin and autumn beers, they just rarely seem to live up to the excitement. Pass.

pours a nice autumn maple with small head. aroma is all spice and pumpkin pie with a hint of clove. mouthful starts out nice and pumpkin pie like then is dominated by clove. there is room for improvement by simple backing of the clove thing..

Very nice color - deep amber. Aroma is full of sweet pumpkin, spice and malts. Flavor is quite chewey, good and pumpkin, but perhaps a tad bit too sweet. Spices are wonderful though.

Draft at KC F.S. Very spicy, in a good way. Relatively thin body overall. Tastes like pumpkin bread more than pumpkin pie if you’re looking for something to compare it to. Alcohol is buried away.

Small white head with fair retention and minimal lace. Clear orange/copper hued brew. Nose is yer basic pumpkin beer nose, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc, with a little malt coming through. Light bodied, little sticky, soft carbonation. Not overly done spiceyness, a bit sweet (for me) and sticky, faint mlats and gourdy notes hiding in there. Lightly sweet finish. Meh. 6r procured @statelineliquors.

Bottle from SL. Poured with a red-amber color, decent initial sized head. The aroma was spices and pumkin as expected. The flavor actually featured the pumpkin with the spices not overwhelming this thing. It also wasn’t sweet or cloying, probably a little light in flavor and body overall, finishing somewhat dry. A decent pumpkin ale.

Bottle picked up at SL, thanks to matt for the rec. Pours a red color, with out much head.... Smells decent, light pumpkin, spices, nutmeg and cinnamon. Nice pumpkin beer... not sweet or overly spiced.. Strong pumpkin notes with cinnamon and spices in the background, a little warming from the alcohol. Medium body... Nice pumkin beer, very enjoyable
