3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap. Lightly hazy orange-copper. Nose is typical pie spices and some caramelized pumpkin. Taste is the same, plus some toast and a touch of leafy hop. Not too heavy on the spices, but could ease it up a bit. Light-medium body has low-average carbonation, is lightly spicy-tingly and sweetish.

From a growler. Copper, no foam. Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. And pumpkin, as well. Lots of spice in the flavor, but not overbearing. I approve!

From a growler - Growler from 11/02/07, drank on 11/03/07. Cloudy orange, very thin head. Oddly restrained aroma - definately pumpkin pie, but not overpowering. Much more agressive flavor. Not really pumpkin pie, but more like pumpkin bread, with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, plus some vanilla notes. In fact, I’m gonna it reminds me of Pumpkin bread with a bit of vanilla frosting. It’s very tasty but a growler is a bit...much. Actually towards the end of the evening, we discovered that if you mix it with a pale ale it cuts the sweetness nicely.

Draft at brewery. Absolute worst pumpkin beer I have ever tasted. One of the worst beers I have tried period. Cloyingly sweet with an artificial saccharin like taste to it. Fortunately I only ordered one for the wife. She actually turned to me and said she would prefer to drink a bud light. Drainpour.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap @ Smoky Mountain Brewery in Gatlinburg, 11-08-2010. This pumpkin pie-in-a-glass pour a beautiful clear medium amber-brown with a tight creamy head and tons of lacing with every sip. Big spiced aroma of nutmeg, brown sugar, cinnamon, slight ginger, biscuit and pumpkin pie. Taste is sweet and spicy with a creamy mouthfeel, really like a rich pumpkin pie with whipped cream topping. Most excellent! pfoxyjohn and I were lucky enough to order the last two pints available at the brewery - good timing.

Draft sample at the 13th Annual Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Orange in the glass with an off-white head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Wheat and spice aroma. Wheat and spice also in the flavor with a backing of pumpkin. Medium body with a light spice aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Nama. Dark red-orange body with a finger of cream colored head that is nice and thick in appearance but leaves no lacing behind as it slowly recedes. Aroma is very restrained, I guess some spice aroma, cloves and cinnamon and a faint bit of caramel sweet maltiness but overall very weak. The taste is great, thick and creamy feel and notes of all the classic pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon. Thick and chewy this was a nice beer. I just wish the aroma stood up to the rest of the beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught, 2008. Pours orange with off-white head. The aroma is light pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, that lot), and an unusual lemon note. The flavor is sweet pumpkin pie at first, with rich malt, cinnamon, and clove, but it fades quickly into a thin fizziness. The finish is spritzy and citric, and reminds me quite a bit of Fresca. Weird.
