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.

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.

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 (5472) - 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 (6067) - Pennsburg, 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.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Pours a hazy orange color with a small to medium head with some lace. Aroma is pumpkin pie, they basically nailed the spices in the aroma on this one. The flavor is not so good though, along with the pumpkin pie spices there is a grainy character and what is worse there is some odd cough syrup thing going on. This is fairly watery.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Tap at the Philly location: Hazy copper orange with an off white film of head. Sweet aroma- canned pumpkin, maltose and cinnamon- not very spicy- not much depth. Creamy body with a sweet flavor- maltose, brown sugar, cinnamon, canned pumpkin- slightly under attenuated, or just needs more spices.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Sampler at the Philly brewery. Pumpkin pie spices on the nose. Clear medium amber with small white head. Clean spicy mace, nutmeg, allspice and earthy hops over light caramel. Medium finishwith light residual bitterness.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2009
On tap at the Philly brewpub. Clearish orange brown with some white froth. Nose is pumpkin spice; heavy on the clove and nutmeg. Medium light with moderate carb. Taste like the nose, some lemon and spices. I didn’t pick up too much pumpkin. Spices avoid the bitter aftertaste i sometimes find in brews like this.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2009
poured a golded amber, lots of pumpkin and spices, some cinnamon, some clove. flavor didnt deliver the amount of pumpkin that the aroma advertised...spices kind of dominated too much. not a bad pumpkin, but not a great one either.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Pours a light coppery orange- mostly clear and a small fizzy white head. Aroam is typical pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, clovey and fruity esters with a moderate lightly toasted sweet malt backbone. Flavor is also nicely sweet, toasted malts, caramel and slight honey with all the pumpkin pie spices in moderate amounts. Creamy and smooth body and aftertaste. Standard Pumpkin ale- nothing too unique or outstanding, but not bad at all.
