Poured an orange-caramel color with a large tan head. The aroma was sweet, spicy with notes of orange, nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor was sweet spicy cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of orange and a spicy dry finish. Full bodied. Very nice.

Bottle from jjpm74 Thanks Nice aroma of spice and some underlying sweetness clove etc Pours a orange amber tone The flavor is where it all goes wrong It is vegetal and bitter tart unpleasant with none of the nice spice that was in the nose After the tart vegetal aspect comes a bitter earthy finish The flavor is acrid and bad really The nose was nice and I wish the flavor would have followed through

BEERGUY007 (206) - Scotia, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2008
12 ounce bottle from Glenville beverage. Pours an orange color. Appropriate considering, Anyway, smells immediately of pumpkin spice. Taste is bitter. That disappointed me. I really wanted to like this one. Oh well.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle. Sharp nutmeg, cinnamon, and copper aroma with a tart undertone. Cloudy orange-amber with a thin head. Intensely bad flavor. Copper and spice. Harsh and near undrinkable.

Nice aroma. Pours orangey of course. Lots of spice. I rather liked it but for some reason I just like all pumpkin ales.

Bottle poured a hazy orange with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of clove, allspice, carmel and pumpkin. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, allspice, cinnamon and light pumpkin with a smooth lingering spiced finish.

mcox90 (1584) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 19, 2008
12 oz bottle. Bought a six pack at the local Shaw’s supermarket. Pours a pretty deep red orange color with a 1/2" white head. Huge spice nose with a fairly heavy palate. Strong flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and some pumpkin. Much heavier than some other pumpkin ales I’ve had. Pretty good, just wouldn’t want a lot of them.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Huge aroma: earth, grass, spices, especially nutmeg and allspice. Hazy amber orange, significant yellow-beige head leaves abundant lace. Initially bittersweet, grass and pumpkin, then turning towards tart orange juice with significant earthiness. The spices come to the fore in a lingering finish. Creamy on the front, clean in the finish, very quaffable.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Dark amber/orange in color. Huge spiced nose. Lots of nutmeg with cinnamon and ginger. Loads of spices. Some somewhat sour graininess in the background. Smooth mouthfeel. Somewhat bitter hoppy finish.

Beerman6686 (4575) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2008
POured a light orange color with a big white head. Aroma was of lots of nutmeg and a bit of biscut. Flavor was spices, then really hollow and watery in the middle and then a sweeter pie crust swallow, not horrible, but not everything fits together.
