Pours a beautiful vibrant orange with a white head. Aroma was like spiced perfume. Super aromatic but the aroma was overwhelming. Cinnamon, nutmeg, a hint of pumpkin. To perfumy. Flavor was a bit cloying sweet, spiced, a little pumpkin. Really just on the wrong edge of pumpkin beers. THe flavor had potential but was cranked way to high. Drain pour.

Bottle courtesy of drfabulous. Clear dark orange appearance with a bubbly white head. Aroma of lots of spice, cinnamon, floral soap, nutmeg. Some pumpkin I think? Flavor is lots of cinnamon with soapy overtones. Flavor of dry pumpkin falls on the finish.

Bottle from Cavie. Deep amber pour with a small, off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie, clove, and bread. Taste is very cinnamon, malt, and caramel. The cinnamon might be too much.

My other favorite pumpkin beer! This one tastes more like pumpkin pie spice than like pumpkin. An effervescent desert-like treat!

12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA, opened 9/5/10. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a medium tan head that fades quickly. The aroma is pumpkin and big spice notes, including nutmeg, ginger and clove. The taste is pumpkin and fresh baked gingerbread. Cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices. Medium bodied. Damn good, and a contender for my favorite pumpkin ale ever. Nice job.

A: The pour is your rather average amber color with a fingerís worth of off-white head. S: Lots of pie spice notes fill the nose. I get plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice. Thereís a mild graham cracker malt note and rather than pumpkin, I get apples... T: The apples are present on the flavor as well, but still not really any pumpkin qualities. The spices are the bulk of the flavors in this beer, and fit the same deScription as those mentioned in the aroma. M: The body is medium with a fairly lively carbonation. D: This didnít necessarily say "pumpkin beer" to me. It was much more of an apple pie beer, and a good one at that.

Iíve never had a Pumpkin ale, so this will be my first time. Poured into a dimpled mug. First aroma and impression I get is of cinnamon, like a cinnamon red hot. Caramel malt in the background as well. The mall fizzy head quickly disappears. First taste is Ö well, thereís really no other way to describe this. Itís like drinking a liquid pumpkin pie, right down to the crust. Clear pumpkin flavor up front followed by nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Pie crust malt sweetness and powdered sugar finishes. This thing is making me crave my momís pumpkin roll. Iím going to have to pick a lot of this up for Thanksgiving in November. Delicious.

12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is deep amber with about an inch of off-white head on top; this quickly dissipates without a trace of lacing. Nose is cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, sugar, pumpkin, and even the crust. Taste is exactly the same, only it is pulled off without being overly sweet/syrupy with quite a light body. Of all the pumpkin beers Iíve tried, this one most closely mimics home made pumpkin pie on thanksgiving. Definitely a treat that I could sip entirely too much of! On a side note, where is the 8% ABV hidden?

Great deep amber coloured body with a bright orange glow when held up to a light and a lush, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spice, strong cinnamon, a bunch of hops (awesome to smell) and a bit of yeast. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong assertive malt, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin are very noticeable throughout this. Chunky, chewy mouthful afterwards with a lot of sweetness, noticeable pumpkin and a good spicy character. Overall, a very nice and well done beer that shows a lot of complexity and pretty much everything youíd want from a pumpkin beer. This one sits strong and deep, just like a meal - so if you want a beer thatís almost like a meal or a bit to eat - drink this! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Bon Vivant Market in Smithfield, Virginia on 14-October-2010 for US$2.80 sampled at home in Washington on 21-October-2010.

Pronounced cinnamon and pumpkin aroma with clove accents. Clear orange, medium yellow head. Lots of cinnamon on the front end. Greater pumpkin notes appear later with nutmeg. Medium body. Much more cinnamon than most pumpkin spice beers. Exceptional for the style.
