Poured copper with a decent yet short lived head that did leave a little lace behind for the offering. Pumpkin pie in a glass on nose with hints of a buttery flakey pie crust. On mouth this beer lives up to the aromas. While presenting a light medium mouthfeel this beer delivers on cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. I did pick up some hop on finish.

Best pumpkin beer that I have ever had. While many like to brag that their brew is pumpkin pie in a bottle...this beer is one of two that actually delivers.

Rated while drinking: Pours a lighter translucent golden amber color with a big cap of white head. This disappears to a faint ghost of a top. This aroma is alarming. Graham crackers, pumpkins?? Very different aroma invading. Goodness. Flavor took me apart. Shocking to say the least.

Pours out hazy orange with a big creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet and very caramel with spiciness, nutmeg and pumpkin. Flavour once again is very rich and sticky with sweet pumpkin and caramel to the fore, toffee, bit of a vegetal touch as it warms up. Sweet malts, no hops really except as a balance, maybe providing a dash of orangey citrus. Finish is surprisngly well balnced with pumpkin dominating and a honeyed sweetness that lingers. It really is like a caramelized pumpkin desert beer, though Iím not keen on how the vegetable flavours grow as the beer warms, definitely needs to be served on the cooler side for me, if only to reduce the sweetness a bit. Bt all in all itís great fun, and Iím really surprised I liked it so much as Iím not a big fan of Pumpkin at the best if times.

2011 vintage, from bottle, pours an orange colour. Irn Bru anyone? What little head there is vanishes rapidly. Not a fan of the aroma but I think it smells of pie crusty maybe. Initial taste is a fine bitterness leading to some pumpkiny notes, write interesting really. aspirating the ale really brings out the pumpkin. Overall flavour lingers but isnít long lasting. A seasonal curiosity.

I love this sweet almost candy like aroma! It reminds me of Autumn. Nice burnt orange color, clear. Flavor is almost like gingerbread. Lingering sweet finish.

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.

Pretty remarkable spices and overall flavor. Tastes like pumpkin pie - all the way to the graham cracker crust. Vanilla notes are nice, plenty of nutmeg. Probably the best pumpkin beer I’ve had.

22 oz bottle for 9 bucks. Ouch! This beer flies off the shelf, so I figured I had to pick one up to see what all the hoopla was about. Pours a clear copper/gold with a small white head. Smells like pumpkin pie, some spice and some malt. Taste is a little doughy, pumpkin, some spice, cinnamon and sweet on the end. Slightly thinner body but strangely creamy as well. I like this but I think it is a bit overpriced. Doesnít quite live up to the hype for me.
