Aroma of pumpkin pie, all spice and cinnamon. Nice looking orange color with a short lasting white head. Great taste of pumpkin pie, with spice and a hint of sweetness. Creamy feel with a spicy finish.

hopbag (90) - - SEP 8, 2014
Really nice pumpkin pie flavor. Ginger, clove, nutmeg. Canned pumpkin in the finish at the back of the palate. Sweet but not overly so. Red amber color with almost no head. Really nice beer for the category. Executes the concept well at the cost of head retention. Could drink two of these in a sitting before it becomes cloying, which is pretty good for a gimmick beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-caramel color with a small foamy off white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was sweet nutmeg, cinnamon and faint tangy bread and caramel. The flavor was strong pumpkin pie spices - mostly nutmeg and cinnamon and had undertones of bread and caramel. Spices overwhelm. Long sweet and tangy finish with lingering spices. Medium body. Decent.

BeerandBlues2 (9700) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Tap at Thornton River Grill. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast, caramel, and cookie malt, dates, pumpkin, nutmeg and cloves, and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant, medium spices, light hops and bitterness, fruits and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

bytemesis (3157) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle from the latest local swap - thanks! Pours a really nead looking ruby-hazel-orange, crystal clear with a small beige head that dissipates to a ring that laces well. Aroma is pumpkin spices, clove, allspice, cinnamon, caramel. Flavor is much the same, very spice forward, quite sweet on a caramel malt backbone. Not really any bitterness although there is a zestiness to the finish. Too sweet for me, but not bad for what it is.
