Amber color with minimal head and very little carbonation. Aroma is of nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is also full of Fall spices. Nutmeg and cinnamon again with some over ripe fruit and alcohol. Some nice ginger bread and pumpkin pie.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 On tap at Galexy Hut in Arlington.. Dark Copper but the bar is dark too.. Slightly cloudy and no head or lacing . sweet but to be expected and full of spices with just a little pumpkin, but much better that the dash of spices usually put in. Some lighter fruits like pears in the first taste and dates later with a clean finish for something with this much suger. 10/2011 visited this mecca again

theisti (3416) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 22, 2010
12 oz goblet at the Schlafly Bottleworks in St Louis, Missouri. Pour is brown amber copper, slight haze, more or less no head. Aroma is spiced nutmeg, cinnamon, a touch of the pumpkin. Taste is pretty heavily spiced, nutmeg mostly, followed behind by pumpkin and a touch toasty malt. Certainly a pumpkin beer, perhaps more heavy handed than I prefer. It is very fresh and clean tasting. Palate is medium to heavy bodied, spritzy carbonation, spiced lingering aftertaste. Overall, really nice version of a style I am not usually crazy about.

HopKitty (59) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Color is amberish, translucent, no head or lacing- looks like a flat watered-down cherry coke. Aroma is of carrot cake. Flavor is of carrot cake ice cream soup. 6 pack from Moon Wine and Spirits.

Rustyham (1781) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2010
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.

bmcginni (20) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2010
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..
