hopdog (8530) - 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).

NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle @ home. Fairly clear, brown/orange appearance with a tan head. Moderately spicy, roasted pumpkin, caramel malty nose. Caramel/toffee malty, spicy cinnamon/nutmeg, roasted pumpkin, earthy hoppy flavor. Pretty solid pumpkin beer though a little spicy which is to be expected from the style.

Drake (7946) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Virginia Beach. Pours a dark rust color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel, pumpkin, apples and that molasses really comes through. The taste is earthy notes, pumpkin, brown sugar, faint hops and a spicy finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

DocLock (7502) - 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.

jtclockwork (7118) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose/taste of pumpkin, pie crust, nutmeg, cinnamon, molasses and toasted caramel malt. Lightish body. Touch of herbal notes.

Ughsmash (7006) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottled. Poured deep garnety-amber with a dense beige head. The aroma picked up a lovely blend if pumpkin meat, nutmeg, and molasses, with some cinnamon and biscuity notes too.. warm and welcoming. The flavor found molasses and lesser pumpkin meat at the core.. dry, somewhat oxidized spices around (nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove).. finished with tacky spices and a slight soapy character. Light-medium bodied and dry on the palate.. just an OK flow.. started out better than it finished.

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2013
12oz bottle pours with an amber body that has copper hues and supports a white head. The aroma offers up malts as well as roasted malts mixing with molasses, malt sweetened pumpkin and faint sweet red apples. The taste is similar and delivers sweet malts, some roasted maltiness, mild pumpkin and then pumpkin pie spices. Overall this is pretty nice and the pumpkin notes that surface are tasting good.
