Bottle. Pours golden with almost no head. Aroma is of spices, pumpkins. Taste is of pumpkins, spices. Overall: Iím not fond of pumpkins ales. This proves to be hard to drink, but no too bad either. I see nothing interesting in this beer.

poured into a lager glass. Amber in color with a thin head. The pumpkin in this this beer is very apparent unlike most pumpkin ales in which the nutmeg and cinnamon is more noticeable. A very good pumpkin ale that hides the 8.6% abv well. I hope to purchase more bottles of this beer.

2010 bottling. A definite pumpkin ale. Strong on the pumpkin / pumpkin pie flavor. Less cinnamon/nutmeg than some other pumpkin ales. Somewhat bready. On the whole, the flavors felt muted. Much better than the Shipyard pumpkin ale. More pumpkiny than the New Holland Ichabod, but I have to give the higher ranking to the Ichabod as a matter of personal taste and preference for more spice. If memory serves, flavor is more-muted than with the Buffalo Billís as well... I will need to re-taste that one and then update this note.

Smells like soap. Too much carbonation. Better than the average beer but not something I would recommend.

22oz Bottle poured into glass. Pumpkin gold color with a yellowish white head. The smell of fresh pumpkin pie! Very delicious smelling beer. Absolutely the best pumpkin beer I have ever tasted, just like pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. I agree with the person who said they can taste everything right down to the graham cracker crust. Especially because the aroma of graham cracker crust is so strong. Great job of hiding the 9% alcohol which I must confess I love too. As far as harvest brews go this is what I would recommend to anyone interested. Overall Southern Tier scores again with another awesome beer, a must have.

Medium gold, thin white head. Pumpkin pie crust nose, hint of spices. Yeasty pumpkin taste, a but of bitterness lingers towards the end. Just the right amount of pumpkin, not too overpowering. Plenty of carbonation, decent chewiness.

Orange color, with quickly fading head. Wonderful sweet and spicy aroma. Taste is sweetish, with a nice spice and alcohol flavor as would be expected

this is an intense pumpkin beer for sure. pours a somewhat cloudy, deep orange color with a small white head. aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, all spice, vanilla, and lots of ginger bread. Medium bodied mouthfeel with nice bitterness. Finishes smooth with a noticeable alcohol presence. overall, i am really enjoying this as itís a nice change from the basic pumpkin beers Iíve been drinking lately.
