A nice heavier pumpkin ale. Smells of Apple cinnamon, pumpkin and a hint of vanilla. Taste has a very scotch ale backing, is very cinnamon that lasts and overpowers a bit. Had in the bottle.

Smooth but not the fullest flavor u expect from a pumpkin ale also lacking in aroma for a holiday brew.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks zvikar. Clear orange. Aroma of lots of pumpkin, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sweet flavor with pumpkin, caramel, honey, lots of spices, alcohol and a drier, spicy-bitterish finish. Medium-bodied, a bit sticky.

I’m not the biggest Pumpkin ale fan but they are hard to avoid this time of year. My wife buys them more than me and she got this one. However I don’t think she realized it was a 9% abv. and had to share a bit with me. The aroma has a faint spicy aroma. The flavor is filled with spice, sweetness, and obviously pumpkin flavor. Their is a pleasant gala apple souriness to it. I like this pumpkin ale a lot and am glad it is overly sweet like some pumpkin ales i have had. I find a bit off alcohol heat in the finish which is pleasant with the complex spiciness.

Pours a slightly hazy copper with a small white head and a little bit of lace. Aroma is spicy, nutmeg, cloves, all spice, pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, and some caramel malty backbone. Flavour is nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice, light alcohol as it warms, caramel, and mild pumpkin pie filling. Nice balance for a 9 point beer!

Pours a clear orangish Auburn color with a frothy white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, yam, allspice and sweet malt. Taste is pumpkin, steamed yam, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and a nice natural taste into the finish. Medium high body with a touch of alcohol but overall very smooth for its high abv.
