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.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 On tap at the New Hope location. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with an average size off white lacing head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, pie crust and pumpkin. Flavors of the same. This was a very solid Pumpkin Ale. Right up there with the Weyerbacher and DFH, maybe not quite as solid...but close. Walked out with a growler of it.

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.

ben4321 (4066) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, Princeton, 11/17/13

Aroma: The nose is a touch dull, with pumpkin spices, malts, bread, and some mild fruit
Appearance: It pours a clear darker orange color with a head and some good lacework
Flavor: The spice comes out more in the flavor, but the components are pretty similar to the nose
Palate: The body is medium, it drinks easily, and has a mild dryness to the finish
Overall Impression: This is an alright example of a pumpkin spice beer, but it just feels a touch on the dull side, especially in the nose. Overall though, it is very drinkable.

beerbill (3509) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2013
On draught at the brewpub in New Hope. Arrived to the table a mostly clear orange amber with a thin-moderate white head. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin along with the requisite pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is a nice combination of pumpkin and spices with some caramel sweetness present as well. The spices do not dominate. Medium bodied. An enjoyable pumpkin ale.

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.

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.

CanIHave4Beers (3328) - 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.

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.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - 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.
