On tap at Vintage. Pours a dark orange brown with a thin, barely perceptible white head. Aroma of toasted pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, peppery spices. Flavor of pumpkin, bready and sweet malt, light spices. Nice aroma, but a little heavy and sweet in the palate. 7/4/6/3/12 (3.2/5)

Very good pumpkin ale. Spicy aroma, with a hint of pumpkin. Orange-amber color, slightly hazy. Spritzy carbonation. Pumpkin and spice is also prominent in the flavor. A fun and tasty beer.

Hazy brown/red. Pretty big spice - nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper along with pumpkin and fruity yeast esters. Spice dominates taste buds at first, but evens out with drinking. Cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, pepper, moderate sweet pumpkin pie filling, toasted malt, and hint of that Belgian yeast. Medium on the palate and maybe just a tad thin on the flavor profile, but all-in-all, a very good pumpkin beer.

At the brewery before the penn state Wisconsin game. Go Penn State. Pours a murky unseeable golden brown with a creamy off white head that leaves a ring. Smell is of cinnomin and clove and light pumpkin. Taste is super smooth and spicier nice with a pumpkin pie after taste. Nicely done I like the smoothness of this pumkin ale not watery at all or thin.

The base beer was much better than its chocolate counterpart. Almost like a liquid pie it was ideal for a cool fall evening. I always enjoy when these seasonals are released because of that very reason. If you miss it Iím sure it will come back for 2012.

Aroma / Appearance - Ruby red with a soft puffy head an spindly legs the base is warm and inviting. Nutmeg, whipped cream, and squash are the main players in a strongly spiced experience.

Flavor / Palate - Whipped cream melted onto a fresh pumpkin pie calms the palate. Refreshing and fluid the mouthfeel avoids being cloying. The only real complaint I can come up with is that for 7% it does feel a little weak. However given that I could drink this all night that might be a good thing.

10/22/11. On tap at the brewpub. Hazy reddish pour with a small khaki head that fades. Nice spice profile with vanilla on the aroma as well. Sweet, gourdy flavor that thankfully doesnít overwhelm on spices. Nice for a pumpkin beer actually!

On tap at Vintage brewpub. Murky brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of pumpkin, malt, nutmeg, allspice, clove and caramel. Spice cabinet come take a seat! Taste of pumpkin, allspice, pepper, nutmeg and heave clove with a pumpkin chaser. A solid pumpkin ale.

Solid pumpkin beer. Very even handed spice renderings and pumpkin. Tastes like autumn.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is murky brown/amber with a khaki head. Aroma shows notes of pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of caramel and gingerbread cookies. There is a definate savory quality to the pumpkin they used and plenty of spice to round it out. Overall body is moderate, somewhat sweet, and the finish is spicy. Best pumpkin beer of the festival hands down.
