Burnt orange pour. Interesting nose of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg in the nose. Loads of caramel malt creates a nice back for the additions. Sweet caramel continues in the body with additional notes of honey and gingerbread. Finishes with a healthy dose of white sugar and spicy alcohol. Very well done!

Only the second pumpkin ale Iíve tried, but this was very good. Clear amber with minimal head. Pumpkin pie aroma. Pumpkin flavor much more apparent in this brew than with the DFH Punkin Ale. I plan on sampling plenty more this fall.

Rich in pumpkin flavors. Spices are dominant. In the genre of the "pumpkin beer," theyíve done a decent job. Too bad it isnít cold enough out to enjoy the flavors. You need a good 50 degree night for this beer.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with xmarcnolanx (thanks!). Bottle stamped August 21,2007. Poured a medium orangish color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of spices (cinnamon and allspice), pumpkins, and pumpkin seeds. Tastes of pumpkins, spices, and caramel. Alcohol content well hidden.

Poured a copper color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of cinnamon, allspice, caramel malts, and a bit of nuts as well. Taste of light spices, with chewy pumpkin, caramel malts, and a bit of citrus fruits as well.

Thank to hopdog for sharing this one. Pour a translucent golden amber with a smaller bubbly off white head that went away quickly. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices, some alcohol, getting the nutmeg, clove and cinnamon with some brown sugar and pumpkin. Flavors of the same...a little more towards the pumpkin pie side of things in the flavor. Alcohol hidden with some of the more sweet malts. A little bit of alcohol bite in the end. I had this side by side with the Southern Tier Pumking and while both are good...the Southern Tier was more up my alley.

Bottled on 8/24/07.. fresh one! Poured translucent reddish-orange with just a dusting and a loose ring of white head sticking around. The aroma picked up deep pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon.. amplified by the alcohol, which was never overt.. really enjoyable, and probably the best smelling pumpkin beer Iíve come across! The flavor was marred slightly by some alcohol that lingered in there.. nutmeg, pumpkin spices, and other darker spices hit heavy early and last through a long finish.. some vanilla and creamy spices help support the spicage. Medium-bodied and spicy with a really nice sweet/spicy finish that made me think of hay rides and pumpkin picking.. still a bit sharp with booze at points. Overall a very good pumpkin brew.

bottle pours a deep red with brown tinges. itís not quite a red ale, but itís not quite a ruby hue either. aromas of nutmeg, butter, strong clove; all in all it smells like pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream just like grandma used to make it. the taste is exactly the same; prominent clove and nutmeg followed by creamy pumpkin pie. the finish shows the prominence of the clove shining through to the finish. this is a great way to open up the fall í07 seasonals.

12 ounce bottle from Lukas in KCMO
Crystal clear amber orange, with a off white ring with some continual risine carbonation. I really get a lot of ginger in the nose. Cinnamon and nutmeg are also evident, as well as as a healthy amount of toasted malts. Maybe a bit too much ginger flavor. The spices are easily the highlight, but not obnoxious. Malty with a slight alcohol note. Quite full bodies with a pleasant finish. Top notch as far as pumpkin beer goes.

Bottle from Friar Tuck in Savoy, IL. Pours a deep copper with a huge tan head. Very nice aroma of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and berries. Medium bodied. Nice moderately sweet malt backbone, which has a flavor of dark caramel and raisens. The pumpkin spices take the center stage, and the hops stay out of the way. Spices carry through to the smooth finish. Excellent session Pumpkin Beer.
