12oz bottle. Big pumpkin pie aroma. Medium to dark color for a Pumpkin Ale, nice and murky. The taste is full and spicy, but somewhat different a lot of beers it’s style. The spicing is well done and very balanced, earthy nuances and hops coming through. Harshly underrated thus far at 3.15, this one is recommended for those inclined to enjoy the style. Excellent.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. The aroma has pumpkin pie, clove, cinnamon, and ginger snap. The flavor starts toasty, reminds me a lot of a ginger snap, and also has cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Quite good.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Hazy orange, very thin white filmy head. Deeply sweet aroma, like molasses or brown sugar, with some nutmeg and maybe (green?) apple. Very mild flavor, some spice and light sweetness. Thin, and really not much there, but not bad.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
12 oz bottle. Clear orange-amber beer with a light white head. Aroma is quite fragrant with allspice and ginger over a light biscuity munich malt base. Flavour is sweet with a light biscuity munich malt base. Flavour is sweet with a nice balance of sweet spiciness and a soft sweet maltiness. Lingering bready flavour on the back. Easy to drink, well balanced and quite tasty.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Definitely on the drier side of the pumpkin beers I have had. Lightly tart and fairly spicy. Rather odd, and not entirely appetizing.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Bubbly amber-orange color with a taller beige head. Pumpkin pie scents with a bit of acidity in the background. Not sure if it is the ginger or if there is some something lactic in the there, but only tasting will tell. Light caramel start, middle is lactic, which then turns to spicy. Lots of ginger. Less parts of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. I’m starting to attribute some of the lactic taste to the cloves verses the ginger. Still acidic and biting in feel. Not enough malt depth or sweetness for my liking and the acidity really throws thing off.

(Bottle, courtesy of BMan1113VR) Pours a clear copper body with a small off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, turmeric, and coriander. Flavor of pumpkin, hops (grassy, floral), coriander, and nutmeg with a bitter finish. I would like to try this along with some spicy Indian food.

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2008
pours hazy brown with a smallish creamy head. nose is dead spicy. probably cloyingly so, with a nose like yankee candle. taste was somewhat malty and starchy, but not nearly enough to combat with the spicy flavour. it lacked balance. but it wasn’t all that bad. wouldn’t be able to drink more than one.

Its malty with many Autumn spices of pumpkin, cloves and cinnamon. quite a nice beer.

The aroma is weak and somewhat odd but it does have the requisite pumpkin, malt, and spices. The appearance is amber with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth but thin. Overall it’s interesting.
