[growler, filled at brewpub]
Herbal/spiced aroma with a good amount cinnamon and liquorice and--very inviting. Almost clear orange-brown wth some beige foam on top. Nicely balanced sweet, lotus root malt with a dry, pumpkin pie spice, and a very low, liquorice bitterness. Also a touch of sourness. Medium to light body, medium carbonation, slight tang in the finish. Very good.

Pours a dark orange-amber with a small head and a strong pumpkin & spice aroma - delicious! Tastes of dark crystal malt and lots of pumpkin spice - not a lot of pulpy vegetal notes, it’s hard to taste the actual pumpkin for the spicing. Decent hopping and a dry finish. Body is very light with decent carb, making this a very sessionable pumpkin ale. I like it!

I’m usually this beer’s biggest fan and am the only person I know who can drink two at a time. I really enjoy it and try to drink a pint at the pub every year. It tastes to me like liquid pumpkin pie, only better. Nicely spiced, and complex.

[2006 GCBF] Starts out great, tons of pumpkin pie aroma, and the first sip is wonderful. Unfortunately it goes downhill, as the last taste is a strange sweet brown ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dull, hazy light brown colour. A lot of cinnamon and nutmeg in the aroma alongside sugar pie and light molasses. Mass spice in this one -unbalanced. It seemed so much smoother at the GCBF, but that was late in the fest. This is just a big whack of nutmeg, with hints of ginger. Dull malt flavours.
