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 thatís perfect for the season.

TheEpeeist (3272) - Swarthmore, 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 didnít 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 (5077) - 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.

This is on par with Dogfish Headís Pumpkin ale. Very flavorful. Great looking. All around very good.

Growler from New Hope, PA location: I am usually sketchy when it comes to Pumpkin Ales as they are usually too spicy. This one is almost right, could actually use a little more spice. I think the aroma was spicier than the actual beer.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Sample at the Princeton location: Pours a clear reddish-orange color with a compact light beige head that burns off quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, malt and nutmeg. Light-bodied with mild pumpkin and cinnamon flavors, along with other spices in the background. The finish remains pumpkin-y with a short herbal aftertaste. Overall the beer is okay, albeit one-dimensional.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2007
on tap at the Philadelphia location. Lightly hazy orange/amber in color. Aroma is nutmeg, pumpkin, and toasted malt. Taste is toasty malt with pumpkin, nutmeg and caramel in the back. Light to moderately hoppy for the style and pretty well attenuated. Medium bodied, finishes lightly bitter. pretty well done.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - OCT 16, 2007
at gabf. vanilla nose, orangey brown color, and pumkin pie flavor. the vanilla and slight nut flavors make this more creative than the other pumpkin beers. good palate balance.
