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.

Damico (2547) - 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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Draft at Triumph. Pours red with a beige head. Nice aroma, lots of spices...cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Medium light mouthfeel. Very typical pumpkin beer, but clean. Not mindblowing either

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.

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.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2009

NJBeerman013 (1043) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2003
A good example of a relatively rare style. It is a deep amber color with a darkish tan head. While it does have a good pumpkin flavor it is loaded with spice, more so than other examples I have tasted. All in all a great brew for the Fall season.

HighWine (951) - 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.

Had this when at Triumph for a friend's 21st birthday back in Nov. '03, and loved it. So perfect for autumn, and full of pumpkin and spice flavors

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.
