12oz bottle 12/9/15 (Crown Plaza-STL)-Pours amber with a white heqad. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, and pumpkin pie. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and one of the better pumpkin beers.

This is my favorite fall seasonal beer and favorite pumpkin beer. It’s the tastes are balanced with hints of whip cream and squash. The pumpkin flavor is strong with this one. It tastes like a pumpkin pie. Definitely one of their best beers.

Bottle gift from Pop. Probably the best pumpkin I have ever had. Not overbearing, but still pumpkin, spice, nutmeg etc. Blended well with a splash of vanilla. Very good.

Bottle, thanks Wolff. Amber with a white head. A lot of "pepparkaka" both in the aroma and taste. Cinnamon, light malt, some fruit and hints of caramel. I am not a fan of "Pumpkin beers" but this was a decent one.

It’s a really good Pumpkin Ale. Pumpkin beers are usually better as Stouts or Porters, but this ain’t bad.

Decent for a autumnal ale. Flavorful, nice appearance and good aroma. I wouldn’t drink it year round but it ushers in the season nicely.

Draft at the Pour House in Westmont, NJ. Pours a hazy and very dark golden orange color that’s almost brown with dark burnt orange edges and a one finger beige head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Steaks of lace left behind. Sweet pumpkin pie aroma with a decent balance of pumpkin purée and autumnal spices. Pumpkin seed, pie filling, nutmeg and vanilla along with cinnamon and brown sugar. Subtle vegetal quality but more dessert like than earthy. Medium body with a strong zesty autumnal spice presence that dominates up frot lingering over the sweet malts before a sweet pumpkin pie/dessert presence shows up in the finish. Peppery with ginger, clove and cinnamon followed by caramel malt, pumpkin purée, vanilla and nutmeg. Interesting how the flavor profile changes mid palate. Still tons of spice but more dessert like in the finish. Only a subtle vegetal presnce but it makes it a bit more organic tasting than a pure dessert beer. Nice balance of both approaches to the style. Decently balanced but could be a touch sweeter.

Served in snifter at Schlafly Bottleworks, dark copper with good sized white head. Pumpkin aroma, flavor has good balance of nutmeg and cloves. Finish becomes less pleasant the more you drink this, unless you enjoy funk at the tail end. Solid pumpkin offering, but not quite at the top of my list in that category.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a great clear reddish amber color with a small white head. The aroma is full pumpkin and spices. The flavor is outstanding. This nay be my favorite pumpkin ale.

Typical pumpkin ale with some clove and other spices. Some vegetable matter. Pours orange. Sweet finish with a slightly syrupy consistency. Not my thing. Sample pour at whole foods.
