22-oz bottle. Thin head disappeared quickly. Aroma is straight pumpkin pie. Wow, Iíve head a lot of pumpkin ales but never one that tasted like this. Fantastic warming and comforting undertone - basically, doesnít taste just like pie filling, but pie crust as well. Iíve read that pumpkin isnít important in the flavoring of a pumpkin ale, but I think the pumpkin comes through here. Complex, sweet, uncommon.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 2010 bottle. One of my favorite beers. It basically smells like pumpkin pie. Huge notes of pumpkin, pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, nutmeg, and some cloves. The flavor is more of the same, and beautifully sweet and pumpkiny. Awesome, awesome beer.

Smells like fall and happiness! Sugar, caramel, vanilla, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, allspice. Taste is pretty much the same. Smooth, sweet, velvety. Tastes like desert. Really awesome pumpkin beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is transparent, light golden amber with minimal head. Aroma is light malts, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon and all-spice. Taste is all pumpkin. Very, very intense pumpkin taste. Itís not a bad taste, but it is a bit overwhelming. You have to really like pumpkin to love this beer. Unfortunately, thatís not me.

Tall 650 ml bottle that states: kettle hops magnum, aroma hops sterling. Pours golden amber with a nice white foam. Slight aroma of pumpkin. Initial flavor of malt and roasted pumpkin. Thick slightly slick mouth feel that leaves a pumpkin taste on the roof.

Orange. Aroma is buttery, mandarin orange. Taste has less butter but still very present. Some grapefruit bitterness, orange. Interesting but not all that good.

Poured copper with a decent yet short lived head that did leave a little lace behind for the offering. Pumpkin pie in a glass on nose with hints of a buttery flakey pie crust. On mouth this beer lives up to the aromas. While presenting a light medium mouthfeel this beer delivers on cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. I did pick up some hop on finish.

Spice level overpowers the pumpkin flavor. Good aroma but again, spice notes overpower everything else.

Best pumpkin beer that I have ever had. While many like to brag that their brew is pumpkin pie in a bottle...this beer is one of two that actually delivers.

Rated while drinking: Pours a lighter translucent golden amber color with a big cap of white head. This disappears to a faint ghost of a top. This aroma is alarming. Graham crackers, pumpkins?? Very different aroma invading. Goodness. Flavor took me apart. Shocking to say the least.
