On tap at my brokers office party. This is the first pumpkin beer I can remember ever having so I don’t have a comparable base to rate this against. Plenty of pumpkin pie spices throughout this brew with cinnamin, cloves, nutmeg among others. Probably would have rated this higher if i thought I could drink another one.

Liquid pumpkin pie, anyone? The overwhelming pumpkin and cinnamon flavor and aroma were quite good. Not well balanced though, the flavors makes a quick exit in exchange for a rich sugar sweetness. Good autumnal refresher.

Sample at the brewpub. Hazy-translucent orange-amber with little head...spicy vegetable-fruity nose, pumpkin but also sweet potato, cardamom and cumin....fairly dry body with lots of pumpkin character, malty and lightly herbal, not pie-like at all...sweetness becomes evident near the finish as it warms.

Brown/Gold Coloring with White Head. Pumpkin and Spices Aroma. Malt Background with Pumpkin and Cinnamon/Cloves Spices on the Tongue as Well. Bit of a Tang in the Mouth and Light Hops at the End. Pretty Tasty Pumpkin Brew! Much More Satisfying Than the Oktoberfest.

Dark gold color with no head. Lots of spices in the aroma. Cinnamon, allspice, and cloves stand out. The taste is everything the aroma promises with a healthy dash of bitter hops. There is a slightly dry and musty qualtiy that could be from pumpkin, but otherwise it just appears to be a dry, mulled beer. Pretty tasty!

Served an amber/orange with lively carbonation and a ring for a head. Aromas were rather weak, slightly spiced and a little sweaty. Nice autumnal flavors... malty-sweet and pie-like with pumpkin and nutmeg. Order if you like pumpkin pie. If not, grab their Marzen.

i can smell the pumpkin before my nose even enters the glass. nearly hazy, copper body with straw highlights. it has a nice spicy pumpkin flavor, which is more welcomed in its aftertaste. not that bready nor doughy, though. there’s more emphasis on prickly bitterings. i want more malt complexity, rather than this sweet pumpkin peppery concoction. it gets boring. it gets thin, medicinal, and more prickly. the palate becomes slick. i want more gooey piecrust, etc. perhaps it just needs food?

This one was dark orange/amber with a light brown head. The aroma was light pumpkin pie, but the taste was full pumpkin pie. However, it was not overpowering, intense, or sweet. It had just enough bittering hops to balance. I would probably just want one pint of this in a sitting. I had the brewpub sampler glass.
