COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It tastes like a glassful of pumpkin pie, and no wonder! Loads of pumpkin, along with our own blend of spices, give this orange-colored ale the festive flavor that’s perfect for the season.

HighWine (954) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Definitely tastes like a slice of pumpkin pie! Dark amber pour with a bright white head. Aromas of clove and cinnamon. Taste is pumpkin pie spice with a good hop balance to keep it from getting too spicy and sweet like many pumpkin ales (talkin’ to you Southern Tier). There’s a nice pumpkin aromatic flavor behind the spice. Nice lingering spiciness and moderately slippery in the mouth. Tasty.

Draft at new hope. Amber pour. Great pumpkin and spice aroma. Flavor is sweet and has a good pumpkin flavor. Very sweet but drinkable. Good if you like pumpkin ales

trapped (870) - New York City, TURKEY - NOV 7, 2010
Dark amber color, foamy yellowish head, strange flavor perceived as soap at first but understood to be pumpkin later on, abrupt finish. A very strange beer which repulsed me at first but after the third sip, was enjoyable.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Draft at Philly location. Pretty subdued and lighter pumpkin beer. Pours a nice copper with offwhite head. Nose is spicy, nutmeg and squash. Perhaps some cinnamon as well. On taste, nice and full malt body, taste of pumpkin meat, more of the spice blend as well, though subdued. Pretty well balanced and what I’d expect from a well made Pumpkin Ale. Nice.

Damico (2649) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2010
The aroma of sweet brown sugar, cinnamon spice, and pumpkin. The orange amber appearance has a light head. The flavor is medium to light in body with tons of pumpkin pie flavor, just as intended. You get a nice nutmeg ending on the palate.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Draft. Pours a orange body with an off whtie head. Pumpkin seed, crust, and some lighter spices of cinnamon. Thin and light with a modest pumpkin body. Nice fall ale.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2009
On tap at Triumph in Princeton, NJ. Pours a clear orange-copper body with a finger-width, off-white, foamy head that dissipates at a moderate pace and leaves a decent lacing. Aroma is sweeter with a light pumpkin pie. Not too spicy, but a light cinnamon and clove along with a sweeter caramel. Flavor is similar, but somewhat weak. Lightly sweetened caramels with a softer spice. Finishes crisp after a medium body with a short aftertaste. Overall, not terrible, but unexciting. It was just average, although easily drinkable.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Reddish copper color small head. Aroma has pumpkin pie spice and sweetness. Flavor is nice and balanced. Drinkable, a bit vegetal, which is nice to see, I taste pumpkin in this one, not just spice, still spicy but not overpowering.

dmac (4168) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Growler from Princeton shared at Moosetoberfest. Poured a slihtly muddy brownish/red with a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma is very well done and like liquid pumpkin pie in a glass. The flavor is taken over by the spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and the pumpkin is more of a background flavor. Solid effort but once again the spices dominate and the pumpkin takes a backseat.

egajdzis (5385) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Hazy orange brown with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, and light citrus. Taste of nuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, pine, and pumpkin.
