12oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a thin cap for a head that fades into a ring around the side of the glass. Not really any lacing to speak of. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and graham cracker. A very pleasant fall spiciness and really captures the pumpkin pie aroma perfectly. Not overtly spicy whatsoever. Flavor is very near perfection. Some squashy-ness up front quickly followed by a healthy wallup of cinnamon and nutmeg. A quick shot of vanilla along with some whipped cream but the spices hold strong. Never do they become overwhelming but rather quite nicely balance with everything else. Bitterness is extremely light and nearly imperceptible. This beer is just a touch sweet and not a sugar bomb like so many pumpkin beers. A nice, dry finish with just a hint of warmth from the alcohol. Overall, one of the best pumpkin beers out there. Very well balanced and not sweet at all. I could honestly drink a couple of these in a sitting. One to pick up every year.

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.

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 iím not big on pumpkin ales but this one is nice. Hat tip to BarZigKin for sharing.

John25 (379) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2014
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.

Drank from bottle. A good pumpkin beer but the smell and taste of cinnamon is a little overwhelming. Everything else about this beer is done really well. Good desert beer

harrymel (1481) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2013
bottled 16AUG11 A: Pours a dark copper ale with a single finger of tan foam which falls quickly to a sheet of the same. Spotty lacing. S: Cinnamon and nutmeg up front with some sweet graham crust smells. Light pumpkin meat. T: Lots of squash flavor, some sweet cheery like flavor with the spices. M: Medium on thin body with soft carbonation leaving a slightly wet finish. O: this is quite pumpkin foward. I canít recall a beer I have had previously with so much pumpkin/vegetable flavor. I like how the spices were played here, would almost like to throw a dollop of whipped cream in here. Serving type: bottle 09-18-2011
