natejgood (397) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours a clear medium to dark brown with very little head or carbonation. A bit of an ale smell with the smallest hint of malt. Definitely a bit of a pumpkin flavor, but a bit sweeter than I like my pumpkin ales and also lacking a bit of the pumpkin spice flavor I love. Not a bad pumpkin ale by any means, but it could use more pumpkin and spice flavor.

dchmela (2676) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2011
From the 12oz bottle. Reddish brown pour with a thin off white head. Warm pumpkin meat aroma with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Smooth malt body with nice notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and spices. Nice brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark caramel-brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was caramel, molasses, raisin and nut. The flavor was bitter and nutty with light notes of nutmeg, molasses, pepper, and wood. There was a semi-sweet and roasty malt base. The finish was long and complex. Medium body. Interesting.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of pumpkin, spice, molasses, and cream. Poured deep amber/brown in color with a small, off-white head that disappeared except for around the edges. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, pumpkin, slight spice, and some sewage. Medium body. Average texture. Soft carbonation. Pumpkin, slight spice, and sewage finish. Almost a drain pour.

tgncc (2879) - Bellmore, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Deep red/brown, off-white head. The aroma is pumpkin/squash, cinnamon, nutmeg. The flavor is pumpkin, brown sugar, spicy. Medium to medium/thick in body, sticky mouthfeel. The finish is pumpkin, pumpkin spice, pine, resin. Not bad. Not a classic, but the opumpkin is clearly evident here.

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle from craft beer outlet. Pours dark. Tastes of some spices, as well as malt and sweetness/molasses. Ok, but not a great pumpkin ale.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2011
On tap at Capone’s. Deeper amber pour with a small sized off white head. Pumpkin and spices. Balance of spices and pumpkin (but personally like the balance to tip to pumpkin).

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid deep brown with ruby edges and a 1-finger off-white head. Nose is pumpkin puree, pie crust, brown sugary malt, acidic hops. Tastes tart, with notes of pumpkin, hops, malt, some funky acidic notes, and a dry astringent finish. Not a great pumpkin ale.
