3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a medium amber that yielded a thin one finger head that receded pretty quickly.
Nose is pretty spicy. Lots of cinnamon, all spice and a gram cracker crust aroma. Not to much Pumkin.
Taste has more Pumkin. Still lots of all-spice, cinnamon, some brown sugar, that gram cracker is still there. Nice.
A bit sticky on the mouthfeel. Zesty carbonation. Long lasting flavors. Medium light body.

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.

I shared a bottle of this with Beerbaron617 on Christmas Eve. I have to say that the beer is quite tasty, but on the same hand quite gimmicky. It has wonderful color and flavor, lotís of spice, reminds me of eating pumpkin pie...however, it tastes just too much like pumpkin pie. There are so few hops in this, and well, itís malty, but I just canít put my finger on it. Itís just maybe a bit too artificial.

good looking beer-amber and straw color with quickly dissipating foamy head, medium to light carbonation, aroma of perfumy fake pumpkin, tastes pretty much the same, canít even get to the hops or malt, falls WAY short of the DFH Punkin i had on tap last week..

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
2010 Vintage. Gift from brother Andy. Pours golden orange with a slight cream colored head. Tons of brown sugar and pumpkin in the nose with a faint background of baking spices. Tastes exactly like it smells, but nutmeg and cinnamon come out a little more. Sweet and spicy and full bodied, with a very smooth finish. I can honestly say this is the best pumpkin ale Iíve had. Like drinking an alcohol infused pumpkin pie. Thanks bro!

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a dark amber/light copper colour with a thin, quickly dissipating head.
Aromas are pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and pie crust.
Tasteís are pretty much a repeat of that.
Overall, of all of the pumpkin flavoured beers Iíve had, this is the second best. An outstanding beer, and they truly touched on every aspect of pumpkin pie, which Iíve learned is no easy task.

Bottle. Tasted during local beer tasting at grocery store. Potent pumpkin aroma. Pours orange without a lot of carbonation Taste: Very little spice and heavy on the pumpkin. Not my style. I prefer more spice and less pumpkin flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 bought 22oz at the southern tier brewing co’s attached pub. deep orange-amber color with an off-white head. gingerbread, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel (sounds like the ingredients to a pie, i know). not very strong alcohol taste. it’s the first pumpkin brew that’s ever impressed me, and it makes a delicious fall treat. bartender suggested putting whipped cream on top? not sure about that but it might be worth a try...
