Great example of the style. The aftertaste was all Pumpkin. It was a great mix of fall spices as well. A good beer.

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.

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.

Floral pumpkin spice, cinnamon, potpurri aroma. Reddish garnet colored translucent beer with short tight beige head. Tangy pumpkin pie flavor, sweet veggies and cinnamon. quality, no ’soap’ often in other pumpking ales. modest-light-tangy palate, refreshing. A good pumpkin ale.

Poured hazy amber with a thick tan head. Very nice appearance. Aroma had pumpkin and spices plus courant. Taste was too one dimensional but nice. There was more spice then pumpkin as someone else said. Quite nice though.

Draft at new hope. Amber pour. Great pumpkin and spice aroma. Flavor is sweet and has a good pumpkin flavor. Very sweet but drinkable. Good if you like pumpkin ales

Had a few batches of this seasonal brew in 2004. First batch in Princeton was a bit heavy on the blackstrap molasses, but added a level of complexity I really enjoyed. Spice was not overpowering like so many other bottled versions of a pumpkin ale.
Second wave I tried was a bit more balanced. The molasses flavor was not as pronounced, certainly a bit sweeter. Spices matched up well again.

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.
