3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011, 22oz bottle.
Pours light copper in my tumbler with a thin white head that dissipates quickly, leaving no lacing. Aroma is firm pumpkin pie spice, with a bready malt background. Flavor is a bit different. Very malty with a big pumpkin pulp flavor. Mouthfeel is medium - full. Nice, but I like a more pumpkin pie flavor than actual pumpkin.

Pours a clear amber with almost no head.
Smells like pumpkin pie. One of the best mix of spices in the nose of any pumpkin brew.
A load of spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice assault the tongue. Finishes with a little bit of a spicy hop kick. Iíd like a bit more pumpkin in the flavor, but at least the spices are balanced unlike a lot Iíve had.
Mouthfeel is a touch light with good carbonation levels.
I still prefer pumpkin brews that actually have pumpkin flavor, but the spices are very well balanced in this brew and itís one I go back to every year.

22oz bottle share compliments of Dave F., Thanksgiving 2013. Golden hue wth mostly diminishing white head, virtually no lacing. The pumpkin and spice hue punch you in the nose even before you pour this into a glass. Heavy pumpkin, spice & nutmeg greet your taste buds in the best way possible, the moderate average finish is just as enjoyable. I thought DFH Punkn was my favorite pumpkin beer, not anymore. Best spice/pumpkin beer I have had so far!

Okay, I like this beer, but it tastes like a scented candle. It smells like a scented candle too, but not as much as the flavor. Vanilla, cinnamon, some clove. Alcohol incredibly well hidden. Taste is all pumpkin, without very litttle bready beer flavors underneath. Mildly sweet.

2013 bottle - excellent. Better than any other pumpkin/spiced beer Iíve tried. Compared to Fat Jack (Sam Adams) it has better spice, mouthfeel, general taste, and color. Iím going back to buy more of it. This is a keeper.

22 oz bottle. Pours an unexpectedly clear orange/amber color. Aroma is nothing but pumpkin pie... wow, very nice. Taste is also pumpkin-pie-esque, very spicy (cinnamon, nutmeg, holiday spices), nice genuine sweetness to it. Slightly dry finish. My first pumpkin beer, very interesting, very nice.

Definitely the best pumpkin ale I have ever had and the only one that deserves the name. Smells just like pumpkin pie and tastes as well. Not for everyone, but very festive.

Beautiful apple cider gold, one of the best looking beers I have ever seen! The aroma is spices, cinammon, pepper, pumpkin, the taste is of course pumpkin seeds, spicy as heck, great smooth taste on the swallow! This is a drinker, you can drink this with anything all day. You donít even notice the 8.6 ABV, great beer.
