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!

22 oz bomber, thought it would be a good halloween brew: pours an amber orange with white slightly orange tinted head. Soft pumpkin aromas not too spicy but faint pumpkin. The mouthfeel is rather light and the flavor is as well. Light carmel, pumpkin flavors, cinamon, nutmeg. Rather fizzy on the tongue. This is one of the better pumpkin beers iíve had but at the same time, one of the worst imperial anything iíve had. I have to give this style points but if this is as good as a pumpkin beer can get, why would anyone want to buy them.

Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of pumkins and spice. The flavor is smooth, pumpkins, and spice. My favorite spice/herb/vegatable.

Amazing aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Smooth texture with a full flavor. Flavor has great spices like the aroma and a sweet pumpkin flavor. Finisbes with some warming alcohol. This was the absolute perfect beer to drink on halloween night. Really enjoyed this one.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2006 Happy Halloween! Iíve had this bottle for awhile now and have been saving it to celebrate Halloween 2006... Amber/dark orange color, clear. Lively carbonation with a big, foamy orange head. The head collapsed pretty quickly, but the residual crown still leaves some laxing. Pumpkin malt and subtle spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove) aroma. Flavor is initially watered down pumpkin with a little pie related spice sprinkled in. There seems to be some soapiness or something a little funky in there as well. A lot of alcohol flavor after the initial flavor and through the finish. Finish has a lingering okay pumpkin flavor with some spicy hop bitterness. Medium body, but seems watery at times. Somewhat fizzy in the mouth as well. I have heard people rave and rave about this beer which is why I decided to grab up a bottle and save it for Halloween. The Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale is a decent pumpkin ale and better than most, but out of all the pumpkin ales Iíve had, the SOUTHAMPTON PUMPKIN ALE is the best one out there, hands down. Thatís the one to search out and drink! 22 oz bottle, $5.99 from Riverís Bend.

Excellent lacing....actual pumpkin taste, not pie, not pure spices, just pumpkin!....alluring deep amber/orange hues..loving the signature creaminess and the way 8% is disguised, nice work, ...always a pleasure Weyerbacher...:)

Bomber. Decided to drink this on Halloween eve, I guess it only seemed right. Pours a deep amber/orange body with a huge not-so-quick biege head. Decent lacing. Very complex aroma of mint, cinnamon, clove and spices(coriander). Started off a little harsh, but mellowed out nicely. Vanilla, pumpkin, clove flavors. Slight bubbly, but smooth medium mouthfeel. Very true to the S/H/V style. By far the best pumpkin beer Iíve had.

In celebration of the Halloween Party tonight, out comes the 12 oz bottle of Imperial Pumpin Ale. Nice orangy hue with medium head that leaves no lacking on the glass. Itís got a caramel and spice nose with maybe a soft yeast scent. Nicely sweet taste with the pumpkin spice to linget on the top of your mouth, Alcohol is really only noticable when it hits your belly, not obvious in the taste at all. Very interesting beer, that goes with the season. I wish I had a slice of pie to go with it. Mmmm...pie.

Kevin (2192) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 28, 2006
bottle from black95t. pours a heady dark orange reddish brown . smells of cinnamon, a lot of clove, something like a peppermint too. cinnamon flavor is intense. it dominates everything at first. minty finish. the pie spices are easy to taste here, very aggressive. a bit too much of a mouthwash like sensation to this. the clove is really starting to make itself known the more i drink of this. reminds me of lavender right now. i think this is too much spice and not enough from the base beer to match it. this is not one i will seek out again. i like the cinnamon toast flavor in this, but then it just keeps dog piling. it is cinnamon overload, and clove overload, then the alcohol dries me out and leaves it medicinal.

From Bottle.2006 version. Pours dark orange with ruby highlights. Thick, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of pie filling, cinnamon, clove, and spices. Flavor of light pumpkin, not overpowering. Malt, caramel, spices, and honey. Smooth going down, the malt, honey and a slight alcohol finish/warming more present as it warmed. Syrupy, sticky mouthfeel. Flavors meshed together well. Glad I got to try this, I missed out last year.
