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

Bottle. Dark amber pour with a short white head. Strong cinnamon and nutmeg in the nose. Light clove and pumpkin pie as well. Taste is sweet with more cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie and candied yams. Body is light-medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more sweet notes, pumpkin pie and cinnamon. Tasty!

355mL courtesy of tastybeer. Poured a clear deep ruby red with a massive tan head. Good retention. No lace. Huge pumpkin pie nose and taste. Rich. Eventually becomes a clear red syrup with no head. Nose is strawberry candy, some fall spices, big nutmeg, gingerbread. Taste is spot on: sweet, rich, creamy pumpkin pie, lots of spices. Full bodied and spot on for pumpkin beer.

warmupmytaster (5) - Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2010 does not count
Dark Amber like Arizona clay...wirey, cream colored head. Medium bodied, slightly flat, spices liven it up a tad. Nose: Heavy on spices, more nutmeg than cinnamon. Light showing of true, not sweet, pumpkin. Taste: Pumpkin, then NUTMEG, then pumpkin. A true pumpkin, not in the pumpkin pie family.The nutmeg is totalitarian.
