COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass! This medium-bodied amber ale is made with 100 pounds of fresh pumpkin and spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. A seasonal favorite!

I think that this beer was nicely done. It definitely has a pumpkin flavor and aroma, but not so much to be overpowering. It’s clearly a beer w/ a pumpkin aspect to it. Tasty.

one of my favorites every year. nice solid malt base with a hint of pumpkin flavor as the base flavor. nicely balanced with cinnamon and nutmeg, with a slightly sharper spice flavor added from the cloves and allspice. we may not have the big change of seasons here in so cal, but we have this every year to remind us fall is here.

Yes, pumpkin pie in a glass! Clear amber color with ivory sheen. Nice all spice, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, pumpkin aromas. Medium body. Good mix of all spice, fall spice flavors with a caramel, pumpkin sweet base brew--very tasty

Growler received in a trade with dirty_martini. Thanks Larry! Pours a cloudy copper with a thin yellow/white head that disappeared fairly quickly. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin, malt and allspice. The flavor is equally pleasant with malt, pumpkin, and allspice. Nice smooth finish and very easy to drink. Good stuff!

On tap. Lasting creamy off-white with a hazy orange body. Aromas of molasses, vegital, spice, soggy grain. Light vanilla, cinnamon, orange peel, nutmeg, allspice. Taste is grain, graham cracker, vanilla, and spice. Lively bubbles and a dry mouthfeel.

Poured a lgiht hazzy copper color.The aroma was spicey with notes of cinnamon and ginger that covers up the malt. It isn’t overpowering though. A little minty. The flavor was malty with a quick hit of cinnamon and spice. The finish was short other than light spice giving some length.

For what it is this was a good brew. Pumpkin pie in a glass. Full of nutmeg and cinnamon.Nice palate just would have preferred a little creamier mouthfeel.

It does indeed taste like pumpkin pie. Pours a dark orange. Spices play on the nose. It follows through into the taste. An old school simple pumpkin beer. Sampled at Union Station at the end of L.A. Beer Week.
