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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, 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.

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.

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

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.

10.16.04 Tap @ Princeton. The pour a dark ruby/burnt siena - maple leaves in November. Nary any head. Aromas bite with spice, ginger snap, tobacco. Flavors right in line, more ginger, mulling spice, especially clove. Maybe some pumpkin-like flavors, but I might just be trying real hard to find them. Overall, it’s a biting and simple beer, though full of character. Often, spiced beers like this one can be a real chore, but this is sharp enough to please.

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

trapped (2143) - New York, 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.

HonusWagner (2072) - Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Another pretty typical, pretty average to good beer. Has nothing to deter a normal drinker from calling it a good pumpkin beer but doesn’t stand up to the titans of the style at all.

hophead75 (2012) - 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.

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.
