Honey/amber with a beige head. Strong spicy aromas of nutmeg and cinnamon.Flavor was sweet, caramel malts, caramel sugar, fall spices. Warm and soft with a sneaky strong alcoholic finish. Lots of pumpkin, spice and sweetness-all it needs is some Cool Whip.

This brew appears in the local supermarkets (Schnucks, and Dierbergs) around the last week in August. They run out in early November, if they can stay on the shelves that long. Iíve mailed this brew to friends across the country; it is a hit all around. If you like pumpkin pie, then youíll enjoy this, as it has almost the same sweet taste. Get ready to taste the best pumkin beer ever!

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2010 12 oz. bottle. Pours a rich red-amber color with a small off-white head. Holy smokes, this smells more like pumpkin pie than any pumpkin beer Iíve ever had: nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla, cream, clove. The flavor isnít as exciting, and starts a lot like the nose but then flattens out over the course of the drink. Nutmeg and clove are strong on the palate, with caramel malts and floral and cinnamon notes. Light-medium bodied, with some carbonation and a somewhat watery palate. Good take on a pumpkin beer. RE-RATE: This one is going up a few notches after trying it last night at the Bottleworks. I was fortunate enough to get it on the first day it was tapped this season, and itís tasting awesome fresh. Caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, squash/pumpkin, brown sugar, and vegetal notes that seem to complement the flavors. Man oh man, this is excellent. It looks great in the snifter, a rich, dark amber color. Kudos to Schalfly on making one of the best ípumpkiní ales youíll find and not just making a gimmicky seasonal that sells well (though it does).

Pours a golden orange with very little head and no retention. Aroma is spicy, definitely smell the cinnamon and the pumpkin, also can smell some vegetable undertones, for some reason zuchinni pops at me. Taste is spicy with the same cinnamon and pumpkin. I think since they call it a pumpkin Ale, they are hitting the nail on the head. Good for once, not sure iíd be looking forward to it all year.

Vegetal spicy pie aroma. More actual pumpkin. Golden light amber thin foam. Pumpkin meat, spicy cinnamon - lots of it. Interesting mix, lots of spice - black pepper and menthol mouth feel. Nice use of spice.

12oz bottle from suzygreenberg. Clear orange amber with small white head. Light spice on the nose but mostly big purťe pumpkin an some white bread toast aroma. Flavor is more on the vegital pumpkin side with spice making an apperance but missing a bit in either the body or rounding out of the overall flavor. Donít get me wrong though, this is better than what I can get locally, but the Willamsburg is killer!

12 oz. bottle - dark copper, clear, slight fog white head; lots of spice, nutmeg, cinnamon; light texture is smooth with mild spice and pumpkin pie crust flavor; easily top by the Williamsburg version; dry, sweet and smooth; good stuff
