Does taste like pumpkin. Perhaps too much so actually. Even though this is a pumpkin beer, it has so much upfront pumpkin taste along with some spices that itís a bit sharp at first. Itís good, but could be a bit smoother with maybe some more hops or malt characteristics to balance things out.

12 oz. can served in a Tighthead chalice. A: Pours a solid amber color with a thin white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin film and ring. S: Big spice upfront. Cinnamon and allspice. Pie crust in the background. T: Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie crust. The finish is is slightly watery and sweet. Very mild green hops are in the background as well. M: Medium to thin bodied with a medium carbonation level. O: This was solid all around. Nothing really stood out at all, but all the pumpkin ale flavors were there.

On tap at CBF. This beer has a beautiful orangey color. It has a very full robust flavor with spiced pumpkin notes. It reminds my of pumpkin pie but with a slightly alcoholic kick

12oz can from Binnyís Lakeview. 5.4%ABV. Pours a cloudy, orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma has a good amount of pumpkin pie spices with a thinner caramel sweetness. Light pumpkin notes while the clove and ginger stick out the most. Flavor is similar. Thinner caramel sweetness with a good amount of pumpkin pie spices and a light pumpkin note. Finishes clean and dry with some spicing and a light malt sweetness before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste with the cinnamon sticking out. Medium-thin body and a light carbonation. Overall, not a bad pumpkin ale, but nothing special. Well balanced and a bit thin with a good amount of spices. Okay.

Nice and crisp. Malt, nuts, spices, and pumpkin. Nice finish, not too heavy on the extra flavors, nor artificial tasting.

Dark Orange and Hazy. Rich Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon, and Malts. Flavor starts out strong but finishes disappointingly dry. A good Pumpkin Ale, but still falls shorts in terms of flavor with itís dry finish.

Fantastic aroma with a great amber orange color. Beer tastes like a pumpkin pie, perhaps a little too sweet for some drinkers, but I look forward to this beer each year for its affordability and refreshing taste. Love this beer.

Pours light amber with small white head. Smells lightly sweet and tastes the same with decent pumpkin notes. Not very much in the way of spice but a good change to the Imperial Pumpkins for something a little lighter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Itís pretty good pumpkin flavored ale. Crisp and has a feint pumpkin spiced aroma with some additional malty bread. Itís light orange and a bit fizzy with very little sustained head. Very light lacing. Tastes like a malty pumpkin pie with some hints of caramel. Not sweet and on the dry side, which I like. Very drinkable. Overall I like it, but if you want an ale that packs more of a pumpkin and spice wallop on the taste buds, this isnít it. The pumpkin undertones are more subtle but enjoyable nonetheless.
