This is not my kind of beer, but it is done well. Allspice, clove, and pumpkin make of the majority of the flavor.

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!

The color is a crisp copper with just a bit of cloud. Not much head sticking around. Lots of pumpkin and spice in the nose, but it doesn’t smell like the pumpkin pie in a can.
Fresh pumpkin and graham cracker hit first with the familiar nutmeg, clove, and allspice coming later. Not much from the hops and this ends up in a long, dry finish.
Might be the best pumpkin beer I’ve had.

Poured copper, with a foamy, white head. Lots of pumpkin and spice on the nose. Taste is pumpkin and nutmeg, with a dry finish. Good beer to get drunk on if you don’t want those lighter abv Octoberfests.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma- cardamom, cloves, onion, cinnamon, nutmeg, wheat, pumpkin, bread
Appearance- hazy golden orange
Taste- pumpkin, pie crust, cinnamon, nutmeg, grain
Palate- relatively thin this year, as compared with last, highly carbonated
Overall- A delicious take on the pumpkin beer. Definitely on par with Weyerbacher’s Imperial Pumpkin, if not better.

WOW! pour from a 22oz from PCC REDMOND. aroma is strong scents of a thanksgiving dinner desert. My grandfather made apple pie and pumpking pie and this brought back serious flashbacks from the aroma. I can literally taste the homeade pie in the whif.....first sip brought me further back to my grandparents house for turkey day. I find cinnamon and malty sweetness, but strong pumpkin flavors and mouthfeel of a true slice of pie. I haven’t rate this high in a long time but it is well deserved.

Bright copper pour with a dissipating white head. Aroma is strong cinnamon, coriander and spice. Flavor is pumpkin, spice, cinnamon and brown sugar. Finish is smooth, moderate alcohol presence, very soft mouthfeel. Fantastic brew.

A light amber beer, with a poor white head. A crystal clear beer. In the nose there are a lot of herbs and sweetness. I smell pumpkin, milk chocolat, bitter liqueur and alcohol. It is a medium bodied beer, with a low and fine carbonation. In the taste there a lot of sweet of the milk chocolat, and somewhat spicy from the pumpkin. There is also a light bitterness and the taste of alcohol. In the aftertaste there is more liqueur bitter, and less milk chocolat. Overal is a decent beer, with pumpkin and chocolat dominating the taste.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 bomber. 2008. First pumpkin ale for me. Definately much more pumpkin and vanilla flavors than spice. Pours yellowish orange with low carb and minimal head. Smells really nice fall, candied earth, pumpkin, vanilla like, warm smell. Taste is of sweetness and pumpkin, without any hearty nutmeg or cinnamon flavors to balance it. Taste more of a pumpkin ice cream or pudding than a pie. Good experience but it is hard to get through 22 oz. on your own due to the lack of balance. Very light viscosity.
