Cloudy orange with a small white head. Cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices in the nose, along with pumpkin and even a little dough. Sweet and spiced with some alcohol showing. I donít get it. I prefer my spiced beers to be a little spice and primarily beer, but this is just liquid spice.

Great baked, sweet and spicy aroma, taste is straight up pumpkin pie, but without cloying sweetness. Nice deep golden color. Alcohol is invisible. Very well done beer, a great occasional treat but... still not something I could drink on an everyday basis, the spice is just a little too heavy for that. So Iíll call it a novelty beer, but a very well made one.

From a 22oz Bottle. Mostly transparent, ripened banana gold color with a huge head of milky white. Aromas of freshly baked pumpkin bread, complemented by balanced pumpkin pie spices and a doughy malt base. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a creamy texture. Bready malt base with a restrained baked pumpkin flesh flavor. Clove and nutmeg present, but more of a background role. Excellent flavors and remarkable in that the delicate pumpkin flesh isnít lost in a jumble of spice. Great execution.

22 oz bomber shared by Duane w/ myself and Nimrod. Poured a hazy red/orange with a small white head. Pumpkin, spice and yeast aroma. Decent malt backbone supported the pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, and other spices fairly well. There was just something funky about this that didnít sit right with me. All of the flavors did not mesh well. Still, I kept drinking it, so it wasnít all bad.

22 oz. bottle from Jerc - thanks man. Pours hazy orange amber with a small off white head. Pumpkin pie aromas, (not at all overdone like some pumpkin beers) sweet squashy notes, a little toasty with brown sugar and pumpkin pie spices. Sweet malty and spicy flavors, pumpkin, molasses, nutmeg, hints of cinnamon and a little peatiness. Medium to full body, gentle carbonation. Nice.

Bottle from Buffalo. Cloudy Brown Orange with foamy white head that thins quickly. Enticing ginger, nutmeg, cinamon aroma that tastes the same as it smells. Whatever goes in pumpkin pie is in here. Sweet but lacks carbonation Funny, reminds me of Dogfish Head 90 for some reason. Flavours blend so well you forget itís 9% but leaves you nice and warm, perfect for those cold autumn nights. Had this on tap at Coles in Buffalo and as good as it is in a bottle, it was amazing on tap.

Smell: corn on the cob, some spice (ginger, nutmeg), cooked pumpkin in the nose. Some canned and fresh corn flavours as well, but thatís not unexpected with a pumpkin ale. Overall quite solid and tasty with something bitter going on in the finish.
