I have to give some respect to this pumpkin ale. It is predominantly spicy, with lots of nutmeg and cinnamon on the nose. It is ridiculously long on the palate and full and rich and all that is good in beer. It is startlingly interesting with notes of pumpkin and American hops and full harvest grains in the background. The spices give it a cutting taste which renders extra alcohol unnecessary.

Ridiculous aroma... Smells like pumpkin pie and reminds me of Thanksgiving. One of my favorite fall beers. Nice amber color, good rich body but clean finish. Great beer but not meant to be cellared.

bottle - Pours light red/amber with a very small head. It has a heavy spice aroma with cinnamon and nutmeg the most obvious to me. It’s sweet, spicy, medium bodied, and pretty good.

A reddish orange beer with hardly any head. The aroma is pumpkin and lots of cinnamon. The flavor is like dough and pumpkin pie.

Very pumpkiny! Slightly hazy copper orange in color. Solid aroma of pumpkin pie with a hint of caramel. Spicy notes upfront with clean malt and pumpkin flavor. Followed by a nice herbal bitterness. Overall i’m not big on pumpkin ales but this one is nice. Hat tip to BarZigKin for sharing.

Pours dark orange with light brown and amber. The aroma is all pumpkin pie, brown sugar, and light cinnamon. The taste follows suit but, it's more mellow than most pumpkin beers. This one is a smooth pumpkin beer. Even though it's on the desert side, it's not too much in any way. Rich, malty, tasty and very drinkable. Not bad.
