Bottle gifted by Chaney. Thanks Brandon. The beer appears orange to brown hued. A fine color for an autumn beer. The aroma brings pumpkin right up front, followed by cinnamon, nutmeg, pie, vanilla, malt. The flavor is great, with flavors of pumpkin pie, vanilla, and Fall spices. A bit sweet, but not too. Certainly one of the better pumpkin ales I have had. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-06-2012

Draft at Hellís Kitchen, Norfolk, VA. Clear medium orange body, no head. Nose of nutmeg. Sweet, soft body with lots of allspice and nutmeg. Somewhat flat, but well-balanced and the sweetness is short-lived and not syrupy.

Nice spicy aroma, deep copper color, does indeed taste like pumpkin pie with a hint of carrot cake.

On draft at whole foods in falls church. Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Bubble gum aroma. Flavor is a nice balance - neither pumpkin or spice are overwhelming. A bit sweet but very drinkable.

12oz bottle pours a clear, burnt orange with some thin, off white head. Smells like carrot cake, cream cheese icing, parsnips, cloves, candied ginger, pumpkin pie candle. Flavor is very sweet, like cake icing, carrots, cloves, candied ginger, parsnip, candied yams, marshmellow. Slightly sticky, sweet, spicy finish. Pumpkin pie in a glass. One of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had.

12 oz bottle acquired in trade with RABinVA. Pours a dark clear orange with the tiniest of off white heads. No head at all really. Nice pumpkin scent with cinnamon and brown sugar. Taste is sweet with with a light spice. Contrary to their commercial description, this is not "pumpkin pie in a bottle" which is a good thing because it isnít full of artificial pumpkin flavor and loaded with spice. Just a more natural pumpkin flavor with a nice sweetness. Full bodied and smooth. Very good. Wish this were available around here.

12 ounce bottle pours an amber color, aromas of cinnamon, light pumpkin, some ginger, spices, and light crust. Flavors are the same, light nutmeg in the aftertaste, nice offerring of a pumpkin beer.

Bottle at craft ale house. Pours reddish brown with a small white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is full of pumpkin.. Much more than others. There is also plenty of nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste is mostly pumpkin pie and reminds me of a spicier version of pumking. Really solid.
