Very clear gold. Aroma of caramel, malt, and pumpkin. Sips big natural vanilla. Med bodied and absolutely no pumpkin. Should be vanilla ice cream beer.

Fizzy as hell! fizzy strange appearance and mouthfeel. Musty barn pumpkin smell super strong and winelike almost. Loved how it smelt more than how it tasted. Unique

From a bottle a friend brought over. Pours a dark, clear golden copper with very little head and no lacing. Smells like sweet pumpkin pie, no joke. Taste is sweet spices and pumpkin. Very thin palate. This is a very interesting pumpkin ale. Not at all what I would expect, but not bad by any means.

[2639-20091205] Tap. Little orange bitter pips aroma. Clear, medium orange body with a quick bubbly white head. Super bitter dry orange citrus flavour. Medium-full body. Quite good, drinkable.

blipp (5826) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Draft at Coles. Pours orange with an off white head. Light pumpkiny sweet aroma with floral hops. The flavor is more hop forward than the aroma, with both floral and citric notes and a light sweetness. Pretty good.

2009-12-05. Amber body, ring of off white head. Fruity aroma, hops, citrus, touch of pumpkin if you are looking for it. 7+ Flavour is similar, kiss of pumpkin, citrusy hops, pleasant bitterness throughout. 7+ Average palate is pleasantly carbonated. Very drinkable, quite enjoyed it. On tap at Coles, Buffalo

Sammy (8351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2009
On tap at Cole’s A pumkin beer, orange with white Caesar head, overshadowed by some hops and carbonation. A tad below average mouthfeel. a.b.v. right there. Didn’t quite work out, but drinakble.

Another good one for Coles 75th anniversary. nose is pretty hoppy , with a touch of spice. flavor is mainly IPA with the pumpkin coming through more as this one warms. Great session beer

Draught. At Cole’s, Buffalo, NY. Clear copper pour, average frothy head - nice colour, really. Mild aroma (a tad cold) - C-hops, sweet, moderate alcohol, lightly spicy - only vaguely like the Pumking, has quite a bit more of the ST IPA character - sweet and somewhat pungently hoppy. Taste is mildly roasty, some alcohol (not too much), dry resin and spice bitterness, just a touch catty - and just a hint of the pumpkin in the linger (more as it warmed up). Nice solid body to it, decently carbonated, with a tingly, somewhat spicy crisp finish. Very drinkable indeed - but not much pumpkin there. ** update - had another glass about 2 weeks later - same deal: spicy, a little sweet, crips and only a little pumpkin pie zspice.
