COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Pumpkin and Spices(Cinnamon,Nutmeg,Cardamom,Cloves). This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is heartier, spicier, and more caramelly and pumpkiny than its faint brethren! Perfect finisher on a cool autumn night, or match it up with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream. If you don't agree this is the mother of all pumpkin ales, then you just don't like mothers!

Of the pumpkin beers, this one gets my vote for most pumpkin spice flavor. Packed with cinamon, clove, all spice...you get it all here. Tons of flavor.

Poured from 12oz bottle, little to no foam. Cloudy deep orange in color. Pumpkin pie spice finish, banana nose, almost a Belgian yeasty smell.

Poured form a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours a nice clear amber color with minimal head. Aroma is nice and heavy of spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. Flavor is sweet caramel with some notes of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Finish is bittersweet with a nice spicy pumpkin like finish. Mouthfeel is sweet carbonation is average. Overall this is a delicious beer.

Strong cinnamon spice aroma, in bottle no appearance...a bit too strong on spices hurts it...

DSG (5052) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and more), some pumpkin, malt and caramel. Sweet flavor with malt, caramel, a bit of pumpkin, quite a bit of spices and a drier and more spicy finish. Medium-bodied. I don’t like the style, but this one’s quite OK. Alcohol is well-hidden.

Poured a hazy dark amber with no head. Aroma of alcohol soaked raisin and spices. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, sweet fruit, lingering spices.

Nice deep copper with a small head. Aroma of allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin, caramel, malt, spearmint. Taste sweetish, spices, full body, pumpkin comes out more on palate. Quite interesting.

dunn4040 (92) - Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Pours a murky reddish brown with a cream color head. Decent lacing. Aroma is cinnamon, clove, bread, and a little sweetness. Aroma is light and inviting, no alcohol presence at all. Taste is full of spices, with a gingerbread flavor on the finish. Not getting very much pumpkin from this at all. Flavor is both bold and light at the same time. This is a very good seasonal beer, but not the best pumpkin beer I’ve tried. Mouthfeel is full and a bit creamy.

Pumpkin beer where the spices don't overpower the ale. Good choice paired with Fall food must haves. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
