Draught, Ballantine Willoughby OH
Very fresh keg and thank goodness. Not a pumpkin/spiced beer fan normally but this is over the top good. The aroma is out of this world. Pumpkin pie, vanilla, caramel. Taste follows up with great spice flavor and balanced malt. Try this beer!

Bottle. Nice amber, clear color with small white head. Aroma: pumpkin, cakes, sweet spices - very nice. Taste: a lot of pumpkin, roast pumpkin, pumpkin jam, some root spicies in the background. Overall balanced, semi dry and very drinkable. Warming finish. The greatest pumpkin ale that i ever tasted.

2013 Pumking on draft into a tulip glass. Aromas of buttered popcorn, caramel, pumpkin, a bit of spice, vanilla. This smells like no other beer, particularly pumpkin ale, that Iíve ever had. Itís a gorgeous, slightly cloudy orange color. Frankly, itís pumpkin-colored. Itís just about perfect on the taste. Lots of vanilla, sweet pumpkin pie, a bit of hop crispness at the end just to keep it from becoming cloyingly sweet. This beer tastes like fall. Spare no expense to get your hands on this baby!

Pours a beautiful orange with a nose full of sweet pumpkin and pie spices. A little fizzy at first on the tongue, but there is a fantastic balance between the sweetness of the pumpkin, sharpness of the pie spices, and bitterness of the hops. Easily one of my favorite pumpkin ales.

This is pumpkin pie in a bottle! Very strong aroma and flavors of pumpkin and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Mild alcohol taste. Not for everyone, and in fact, I would prefer a bit less of the strong pumpkin/spice flavors. Still, very good. Great for dessert in the fall!

Way too sweet. Overpowering on the vanilla. I was very disappointed. Usually like southern tier beers. Tasted like pumpkin covered sugar cookies. Not good.

Tulip on tap. Great aroma with buttery nutmeg, cinnamon, fresh dough, pumpkin, with some autumn crispness. Thin head, dark brown-orange color, like pumpkin pie filling. Taste is better than even the aroma advertises, with huge quantities of the aroma spices, lots of pumpkin, very very buttery with the boozy warmth. Great autumn beer, and one of the reasons I look forward to fall every year.

Orange beer with a good white head. Aroma is delicious! Is really sweet, with caramel and cinnamon. But also some toffee and even some chocolate.
In mouth you can find some pumpkin and malty sweetness. Full of spyces and with a more or less bitter end.
The first Pumpkin ale that i like.

Pours an orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. The aroma is very nice, it smells like nutmeg, pumpkin pie, cinnamon and brown sugar. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes pretty much just like a pumpkin pie would. Mouthfeel/body is medium.

This was the first pumpkin brew Iíve had that I actually liked, and I liked it a whole lot. Just the right amount of spice, not too sweet (actually it was fairly bitter behind all the pumpkin spice). Spices and heavy carbonation masked the massive abv% without becoming overpowering themselves--very well balanced.
