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 I’ve ever had: nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla, cream, clove. The flavor isn’t 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 it’s 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 ’pumpkin’ ales you’ll 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 i’d 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 purée 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. Don’t 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

coldmeat23 (232) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Golden amber tinted copper color with a slight haze. Good, full head of foam. Minimal retention and lacing. Cinnamon and nutmeg mingle with allspice and a slight scent of pumpkin. Good malty notes here. This one’s a keeper! Very nice pumpkin flavor mixes with the cinnamon and nutmeg. Good malty backbone. Sweet, yet spicey. Good balance. Nice and creamy mouthfeel. Good medium body, like this style should be, IMO. Great carbonation level, almost perfect. Very drinkable. I’d love to have access to this on a regular basis.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2009
This beer is a clear copper-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon aroma. Medium body with flavors of pumpkin, malt, ginger and other spices. The finish is all pumpkin pie flavors. Overall a tasty pumpkin beer.
