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.

Dogbrick (7581) - 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.

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.

bp (784) - Queens, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Draft: Pours is dark orange, spicy aroma and pumpkin, slightly spicy with a strong veggie taste. Not too bad.

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.

GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Pours a dark orange, with minimal head. Aroma of pumpkin quite evident. Flavors of pumpkin, hops, roast. Sweet aftertaste & linger.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2007
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.

CanIHave4Beers (3136) - 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.
