One of the better pumplin beers I have had. Even with some age on it. Great spices with some pumpkin flesh too. Nice sweet balance with brown sugar to go with the pie spices. Nice.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle at PPRBSG 09. Pours a mostly clear filtered look with a filmy white head. Aroma is typical all spice, pumpkin character, clovey and cinnamon, nutmeg, etc with light caramel malts, hints of toffee, and metallic copper hints. Ok pumpkin flavor, sweet, orangey caramel, toasted malts, fruity esters, allspice, and hints of pine and pumpkin pie. Ok.

Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aromas of clove and cinnamon and light pumpkin spice. Flavor follows the nose mostly, ending with a crisp light bitterness.

LilBeerDoctor (3422) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle at PPRBSG09. Pours a clear orange. Aroma of sweet pumpkin pie. Some crust too, but mostly pie. Flavor of cinnamon, sweet crust, and lots of pumpkin spices. Quite good (especially considering it’s out of season). One of my favorite pumpkin beers. 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5)

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2009 PPRBSG. Pours a brown body with a tan head. Pumpkin pie and vanilla and cinnamon clove notes. Very nice pumpkin brew doesn’t taste artificial at all. Had this on draft in KC, i rated it 3.8-9, so i will just leave this rating. Good stuff. Actually i think Eugene brought the bottle i rated at Peters Gathering.

12 oz. bottle via trade with beastiefan2k - Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a thin off white head. Aroma is spicy, but not much pumpkin. Again, flavor is spice and light pumpkin. Medium body. It’s no Southern Tier Pumpkin, but it’s not bad. Thanks Eugene.

Bottle. This definitely isn’t my favorite style at all. However, I decided to grab a 6 of these. For a pumpkin beer, not bad at all. One of the better pumpkin beers I have ever tried. Pours a hazy orange color with no head. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, spice, and cinnamon. Taste is all the same. Almost too much pumpkin flavor though, couldn’t really taste the other flavors. Decent beer though.

courtesy of tilley4 This one belongs up there with the best of pumpkin beers, and certainly is in my top 5 for the pumpkin style. Pours copper - orange with white head. Aroma is of course of pumpkin with a blend of other spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove) with light caramel. Overall everything, it left a nice sweet nose. Taste, not flooded with pumpkin but really well balanced with the other spices so none really come more across than the other. The mouthfeel was amazing with a light dough / butter cream palate enhanced by the spices, mostly cinnamon. Medium carbonation with nice tingly palate and a warming after taste.

Bottle received via trade with Mr. Rain (thanks!). Poured amber/orange with a little bit of carbonation. Aroma is excellent, nutmeg, clove, pepper and of course a little pumpkin as well. Flavor also well done, rich and thick mouthfeel and almost like taking a bite of fresh pie. This is probably the closest pumpkin beer I’ve had that could pass for the true flavor of pumpkin pie. Give this one a try if you can get it.
