Pumpkin Ale is pumpkin pie in a bottle. Skip the pie after dinner and just have a couple of these! An American Amber Ale flavored with all those fall spices we love!

(12oz bottle thanks to Exiled) Pours a full orange color. Smells sweet and buttery, cinnamon, white sugar, banana. Taste has even more spice- cinnamon, clove, a touch of buttered rum. I can get the pumpkin too. It’s a little more spice than I would like but a good dessert beer. I could drink some more of this.

Clear copper coloured body with a caramel and ruby glow and a non-existent head that just leaves the top oily. Aroma of very potent spice - allspice, cloves, pumpkin pie spice, anise and yes - cinnamon. Medium-bodied then closer to fuller-bodied; Strong pumpkin flavour results in a chewy mouthful after the first second. Potent caramel and roasty sweetness also noticeable and the spices hit soon afterwards with a lot of clove and cinnamon, nutmeg too. Aftertaste is potent with the pumpkin strongest, almost acting like a meal! Overall, a very strong and potent pumpkin spiced beer with a bit too much body and spice for me - almost a meal as opposed to a drink. Well crafted, just a bit too much in my opinion - there isn’t a balance here - it’s simply a LOT of ingredients. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Bon Vivant Market in Smithfield, Virginia for US$1.85 on 14-October-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 28-October-2010.

(12oz bottle thanks to Exiled) clearish orange with sparse tan bubbles. Nose of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and lightly candied fruit. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves/allspice, and candied squash. The linger is downright delicious, and soft/appropriate use of spices in this one.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2010
12oz bottle from ken i believe.... pours a cloudy, mostly opaque, darker caramel brown with a lacy thin soapy white head.... aroma of pumpkin, almost a strong ginger essence, and some accompanying spices, perhaps cardammon.... flavors are sweeter than expected with cinammon, cardammon spice to accentuate the pumpkin essence. medium carbonation with adequate body. a bit too lively at the backend but still one of the better pumpkin brews that i have had actually.

aroma: pumpkin spice, not very strong appearance: a very dark amber with a thin head taste: sweet with a cherry bubblegum aftertaste, interesting palate: smooth medium bodied overall: decent but it’s a bit sweet for me. does not embody the pumpkin flavor of many others in this category.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is a nice mix of pumpkin, along with all of the spices you expect in a pumpkin pie. The flavor is more of the same. While all of the spices are present, the ones that seem to stand out the most are cinnamon and cloves. All of the spices meld nicely and create a wonderful pumpkin ale. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pour is a cloudy dark orange color with an off-white head with good lacing. Aroma is strong with cinnamon, corriander and malt. Flavor is strong with pumpkin, spice and cinnamon, soft carbonation. Finishes soft with stronger presence of alcohol at the end. Fantastic seasonal.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear brown with a touch of orange with a small white head. Aroma was cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Flavor was a nice, sweet pumpkin pie beer with graham crackers and a hint of clove. Alcohol is higher than I expected.
