Wittales (637) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Appearance was hazy orange amber with creamy diminishing of white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet malts then spicey baked pumpkin pie and slight citrus hops. Taste was sweet malts upfront then the pumpkin and spice flows softly. Palate was smooth light CO2 with light-mdeuim body, average length dryish lemony spicey pumpkin finish. A little light (body) for me...

12 oz bottle from Hopper. Nose is nutmeg and cinnamon with some light pumpkin, the spices stand out the most. Clear copper orange with a medium, lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is cinnamon big up front with lots of nutmeg and some pumpkin.

My boyfriend, having heard several current and former Utahns recount tales of the stateís truly insane liquor laws, decided to buy up every kind of beer from Wasatch available at Specís. Itís a great thing to support Utah brewers! Donít expect too much from them though; this was my favorite of their offerings, and itís just "quaffable, but hardly transcendant," to quote "Sideways."

Metalchopz (2318) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 Purchased on my trip to Vegas at the Total Wine store. Second of two pumpkin ales tonight (the other being the Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat). Pours a deep amber colour with a beige head that stays a bit more than the ST and lacing is much better. Tiny particles float around and a little haziness installs itself at the last pour. Pumpkin nose with hints of spices (nutmeg) and soap. The taste is a bit more on the cloves side of things, with hints of pumpkin and a bread finish. Still, everything is pretty mild as this is a light beer at 4% ABV. Not sure if I prefer it to the Shock Top version.

12oz bottle. Dull amber pour with a small amount of white head. Aromas of cinnamon, pumpkin, clove, and allspice. Flavor is lots of spices - cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg - but not overpowering. Body is lacking a bit but overall has lots of good flavor and is very balanced.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle:   Amberish, a bit hazy, lively carbonation, thin to moderate white head, spotty lacing.   Spiced nose, a bit of candle, otherwise pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and nutmeg.   Wow, on the tongue its much more subtle.   Spices arent as big as the nose suggested.   Thats good considering the biggest thing about this was the candle like aroma.   Not too bright tho, spices arent very sweet.   They fade, leaving a bit of that candle I got on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering scented candle.   Spices need to be stronger to combat that waxiness.   Thanks for the bottles Dallas!

Lots of spice clove and cinnamon. Aroma has more apples than anything else.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a thick and glassy amber with a lively body and a thick off-white head. Aroma is an assertive yet delightfully restrained blend of nutmeg, pumpkin, and cinammon. Flavor is a disappointing seltzer water with nutmeg and cinammon thrown in as an afterthought. Watery mouthfeel. Old bottle? Very watery and half-assed.

Draft at brewpub. Easily the best beer here. Big pumpkin pie on the nose. The flavors hit you in waves on the tongue. Very bold yet subtle somehow. Fantastic!
