Poured a clear amber colour with a thick frothy white head with good retention and left nice lacing. Aroma is of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, and a bit of graham cracker. Flavor is of pumpkin, bready malts, and holiday spice. Well balanced medium bodied brew with a slight bitter malt finish.

12 oz. bottle from ryanmcfly1985 - thanks again, Ryan! Pours a clear gold with a bit of an orange hue and a small off-white head that lasts as a thick ring and film and laces the glass unevenly. Notes of pumpkin spice up front - nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, ginger - graham cracker, earth, lightly roasted pumpkin, and a surprisingly big bready malt finish. Moderate level of spice in this one. More in the nose, while the flavor is maltier. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation. Pretty smooth. Not bad.

Bulk_Carrier (2579) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing all along the glass. The smell had some pumpkin up front with a nice allocation of cinnamon, allspice and ginger. The taste was there as it took the previously mentioned flavors and combined them really nicely. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a slight sessionability about it. Carbonation was somewhat smooth. Overall, though I can’t get this beer where I currently live, I would love to have it again some day as when I was able to have it, it was always a go to pumpkin ale.

chinchill (2770) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2014
2013 12 oz bottle with a label that says "PUMPKIN ALE - ale brewed with pumpkin, honey & spices". Not emphasizing the spices anymore? In any case, the spicing level on this is excellent. Even though the aroma suggests a higher level of spicing, tasting reveals a balanced blend of caramelized pumpkin, malts and spices, with a hint of hops. Very mildly sweet. Mediumlight caro

Onslow (1246) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear orange amber brew with steady white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spice. Taste is sweet with pumpkin fruit hints, a little spice in the finish (glad that it was restrained) and a little bitter. Nice seasonal brew.

Patrickctenchi (4604) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Orange/amber with a small, off-white head. Fresh, pumpkin pie filling aroma. Malty, sweet, natural pumpkin flavor. Nutmeg, cinnamon...the usual suspects.... Nicely done, though.... One of the best tasting of the breed.

TheHOFF43 (1771) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours orangeish with a little head. Sweet pumpkin dominates this. Better than most pumpkin beers. I hate pumpkin beers.

magsinva (951) - Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bestway Greensburo - pours clear orange with a white head. Aroma is nutmeg pumpkin. Taste is sweetish. Palate is dry. Overall, solid, but not the best pumpkin ale I’ve had this season.

Beerathon (1494) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Smooth, a bit warming, nice ginger flavor/scent up front. This is a good pumpkin beer, doesn’t try to go all pumpkin pie on ya, Keeps the flavors clean and good.

12oz bottle thanks to JStax, thanks! Pours a clear copper with a thin white head and no lacing, aroma seems heavy on the spices but has a decent amount of sweetness as well, the flavor has a good amount of spices on the front end, not bad by any means, just not blown away by pumpkin beers anymore.
