UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 Of the pumpkin ales Iíve tried, this one incorporates the most pumpkin tastes, along with cinnamon and other spices. The head is bright white and medium, and the beer itself is a light amber color. The texture is smooth and creamy. The finish is spicy and sweet, with notes of vanilla and nutmeg.

Itís Thanksgiving, so why not? I enjoyed this more this year than last. Nice pumpkin and yam aroma. Easy to drink. Decent pumpkin flavor; it seems natural, not artificial. Nice finish. Maybe some citrus in there. Not the best pumpkin ale Iíve had, but I wouldnít turn one down this time of year.

Bottle. Light amber body with a fizzy, off-white head. Light aroma of toasted grain with hint of cinnamon, all spice and clove. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light pumpkin and spice taste is preferable to heavily spiced pumpkin ales. Still, a little more taste would have helped this beer.

Out of the bottle to a plastic judging cup. Pumpkin spice moderate with clove in nice support. Restrained wheat in the background. Clear deep-gold/harvest sun orange with a full white head that lingers throughout. Leaves s tight collar around the glass with wispy blanket across the top of small bubbles. Taste is overt pumpkin spice throughout the taste. Slight orange peel in the back half of the palate. Has a semi-dry finis, with a little lingering bitterness. Overall i am not a fan of pumpkin beers, but this one is rather nice.

Deep gold, clear, off-white head. Aroma of neutral malt, fruity notes, ginger and pumpkin spice. Flavor of grainy and fairly dry malt (the ginger-like spicy note may contribute to dry impression), fruity notes (pear), pumpkin spice.

This was served in a chilled glass rimmed with brown sugar. My second favorite pumpkin ale, I find it very drinkable.

The aroma was the best part. A little weak overall but not bad. There are definitely much better pumpkin beers.

On sale at ABC a little while back - why the hell not? The aroma reminds me of carrot cake and nutmeg, which sounds nice but cardboard was evident too. It tasted spicy and semi-sweet with a raw pumpkin finish that was dry and again, light... watery almost. Typical pumpkin beer the way I see it.

From 12oz bottle to lager glass. Pour is a light copper, lively bubbles with thin white head. Nose is spicy, pumpkin, malt. Taste is sweet, very light bodied. Carbonated finish, very light and mediocre pumpkin beer.
