Clear orange copper color with an aroma of allspice, nutmeg, graham cracker and pumpkin. What an amazing flavor! Allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin, graham cracker. So well-balanced. Easily one of the best pumpkin ales Iíve had.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased at Armanettiís in Chicago, IL; enjoyed after a long Tuesday at work and the first workout Iíve done in over a month. Time to put those calories back on! Appearance is a really vibrant ruby orange with a rich off-white head, tiny carbonation bubbles rising to the top, looks fantastic. Aroma of equal parts bready malt and sweet pumpkin, this may sound odd but this combination makes it smell like I just walked past a Burger King. That is why this gets a perfect 10 for aroma. Other brewers reading this - let it be known that if you make your beer smell like Burger King, people will like it a lot. Taste is very very good, wow, this is a great pumpkin ale! Flavors of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, brown sugar, and it becomes balanced in the end with a crispness and very slight bitterness that reminds you youíre not drinking pumpkin pie mash. Hatís off to these guys, first brew Iíve had from this small northern Chicago brewery, and itís a great one! Itís just one slight tick below Southern Tierís Pumking.

Can from Epps. Pours turbid pumpkin orange with 1-finger uniform sticky white head. Looks great. Smells of pumpkin spice, pimpkin puree, Graham cracker crust. Smells great too. Tastes rich, with a great pumpkin and pie crusty flavor. Good complexity, and one of the best and most complex pumpkin ales I have ever quaffed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can at the STLHops Pinball Party. Bright orange can from a brewer Iíve never heard of- I was all over this at the end of the night. In college, it would have been the hammered chick in the low-slung top. Anyway, pours a cloudy gold color with a white film for a head. Spicy aroma- nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, caramel malts, and some pumpkin. Flavor is exactly the same. Light-bodied, with a spicy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. This delivers the pumpkin ale goods. No more, no less.

Pours a golden yellow with a little white head, no lacing. Very little aroma. A little watery but a nice pumpkin aftertaste. An ok beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
draft... lightly hazy amber with a minimal head, limited lacing, no retention... light spice in the aroma, some mild pumpkin notes, no real hoppiness to speak of... lively medium to medium thin body, ok spicing, but quite light with it, maltier than hoppy, relatively bland..
