Growler shared by Mike at Dmac’s house. Pours out a nice orange/copper color with a small fading head. Aroma is of pumpkin spice, sweet pumpkin pie and some sugary sweetness. Taste is pumpkin spice, ah hell enough with that, its a solid pumpkin, good pie filling-like taste, some spice. Solid.

Growler shared by msiano, thanks Mike. Poured a good looking clear rusty orange with a tiny touch of off white head. Aroma is like a spicey pumpkin pie, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutnmeg, grahamn cracker. Medium bodied with very subtle carbonation, hey it’s a grolwer, and a lingering dry finish. Flavor of cinnamon, nutmeg, touch of vanilla extract, dry grains and alcohol. Solid stuff.

Bottle via bobertkuekn, thanks Robert! Pours a much lighter orange, almost blond, than I was expecting from this style. Good carbonation. The taste is of pumpkin spice and TONS of cinnamon. The finish is almost cough syrup sweet/viscous. More of a typical pumpkin beer and while not bad, wasn’t anything that really stood out to me.

One of the best pumpkin ales I’ve tasted so far! This offering pours a light amber color with a small off-white head. The head doesn’t leave much lacing around the glass, though. I got a ton of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg in the nose. The body was extremely smooth and drinkable. The flavors were really delicious, with notes of pumpkin pie, pie crust, toasted bread, nutmug, cinnamon and a good amount of sweet maltiness. This really was like eating a slice of pumpkin pie. I’ve tasted a lot of other pumpkin ales, but this one wasn’t so heavy on the pumpkin or the spices. The balance of the flavors was just right. Williamsburg’s was more balanced and more well-rounded than a lot of others I’ve sampled. If you get the chance, try this pumpkin beer this fall. You won’t be disappointed.
