burg326 (3543) - Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2012
On draft at the Brass Tap, poured a deep brown/orangish color, aromas of pumpkin, spice, light nutmeg, and some sugar. Flavors are the same light sweetness on the palate, not overly pumpkiny, but has a little of crust, and some light roasted malt to it as well. A nice interpretation of this style, could easily drink this all day with out getting sick of it.

markwise (4427) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2013
On draft at Cajun Cafe Fall Beer Fest 2013. Pours a nice hazy orange color with a white head. Distributor poured me a glass of foam and I had to let it settle. Nose is some candied pumpkin, some light pie spices, some sweet malt, and some sugar. Flavor is similar with roasted pumpkin, some pie spices, some sugar, and some light ginger. Medium in body and a nice pumpkin beer overall.

Draft at Brass Tap Trinity. Pours a dark ruby brown with a small white head. Sweet aroma with hints of vanilla, nutmeg and other spices. Flavor has a ton of vanilla up front tollwed by almond and a nice mixture of spices: nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove.

hopscotch (8861) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Growler... RBWG 2013This beer rocks!… Dirty orange ale with a small, tight, off-white head. The spice-rack aroma is a swirl of nutmeg, cinnamon, chai tea, graham and pumpkin meat. Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is pretty much what this beer’s nose promised – loads of spice-rack and gourdy goodness. Well-balanced – not overly sweet or overly bitter. Finishes toasty and spicy. Big-time thanks goes out to burg326 for sharing this exceptional pumpkin beer!

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Growler during RBWG 2013. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Lots of pumpkin spice in the nose and flavor, but a fair amount of pumpkin and caramel sweetness to back it up. Not bad.

Growler shared at RBWG thanks to burg326! Pours a translucent copper with nice bubbly tan head and moderate lacing. Aroma of nice pumpkin pie with vanilla back. Taste follows, nice nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla notes. On par with CCB Good Gourd, one of the best pumpkin beers I have had, and held up well.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Growler thanks to, you guessed it, burg326 at the RBWG Grand Tasting Jax, FL. Pours a watered down amber with a small off white head. Nose shows sweet potato, gourd, pumpkin, light cinnamon and brown sugar. Flavor is similar--this is easily the best pumpkin tasting beer I have had. I might still enjoy parcela more for its funky JP yeast, but this beer had incredibly nice pumpkin/gourd fruit flavor without being too bitter or vegetal, or what have you. Sounds like others liked it as well.
