Nice pumpkin ale. Pumpkin flavor pronounced. What makes this ale is the sweetness, however, which meshes nicely with the spices.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml bottle. Pours a foggy pale brown, nearing on golden, with a nice white head. Smell is cinnamon and cloves. Taste is obviously pumpkin, with the usual suspects: cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger. Light herbal and spicy hops in the finish. Medium body, very soft mouthfeel. One of the, if not the best pumpkin ale I’ve had this season. Truly stands out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tucson bottle drank in OH. Pours a hazy bronze color with a medium tan head. Nice pumpkin pie aroma plus some vegetal whiffs too. The flavor is nice and light. You can definitely taste both the meaty pumpkin and the spices. I like how the spices don’t clobber you. Tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a reddish color with white head. Pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, lots of spices in the aroma. Tastes just like pumpkin pie. I wish I would have drank this one back in September/October when I am craving the fall seasonals. Now it’s December, and I wishing I had winter seasonals. Whatever the case, this is a really good pumpkin beer that I will need to remember to get next year.

12 oz to flute
Strong nutmeg, clove and pumpkin, and pepper aromatics. Hazy amber with a thin white head and decent lacing. Spices overwhelm the beginning but pumpkin comes through in the bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied and creamy.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle into a short pilsner glass. Aroma of yeast, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Deep orange-red color, a bit cloudy with minimal head. Lighter and more refreshing than it looks with a great pumpkin flavor. Spicy yet refreshing finish. I am a big fan of pumpkin flavored anything and am often disappointed by pumpkin beers, but this one has a true pumpkin flavor and rich spiciness of pumpkin pie while still being very refreshing and easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Drank out of short pilsner glass out of 12 oz bottle. Aroma- strong lovely notes of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and spice. Appearance- golden orange. Clouded with no head and very light carbonation. Taste- nice flavor of pumpkin and spice. Smooth but flavorful. Had off tap once before and it is better on draft. Palate- slightly bitter carbonated mouthfeel but pleasant taste. Overall- best pumpkin beer i have had as there is sufficient pumpkin taste. Better on tap if available

Aroma is mainly spice; with a little bit of biscuit/dough. Nice pumpkin pie spiced flavor. Pretty sweet. Some bread/caramel malt flavors, too -- which complement the spices well. I wouldn’t mind a little more of them.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. This is a great pumpkin ale. It is easy drinking, spicy, hint of pumpkin. Makes a great black and tan.
