Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white head with medium retention leaves no lacing. Pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon aromas. Crisp and dry with upfront sour pumpkin and a lasting sour spice finish. Aside from the sourness of this beer, it has many good qualitiesl.

on tap. Clear amber in color with a medkum off white head. Aroma of spices, pumpkin, caramel malt, clean. Taste is pumpkin, caramel/molasses and spices. Medium bodied. Finishes with lingering pumpkin spice and a very mild bitterness. Clean and well balanced. Nicely done.

Bottle from the Coop in Davis, CA. Bottled 9/21/08. Beautiful copper color with a multi-finger frothy beige head. Aroma of pumpkin pie heavy on nutmeg. A bit thinnish with sharpish carbonation. Flavor is pumpkin pie with some herb or veg. It’s not a month old, and at least one week was refrigerated, but I think I detect a slight sour note. More of a flavored ale than a spice ale - whatever I meant by that. Finish is rather astringent. Think I like my pumpkin thicker and spicier. Maybe it would have gone better with food.

Sweet malt on the nose. Fruity flavor, with a cinnamon finish. The finish is very long lasting. Cant say this is very enjoyable.

BuckeyeSammy (543) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Nice nose of pumpkin spice and sweet cinnamon, nutmeg. Palate is a little too tart/ sweet. Light hop presence on the back end of this beer.Some vegie notes, overpowering sweetness though.

12 oz. bottle. oil slick pour. Hazy golden orange. Bubbly off-white head, tiny bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of spicy cinnamon. Flavor of nutmeg and vegetable. Malty and pumpkin in the back. Medium mouthfeel. Good bit of carbonation, that you can feel from the middle to the back of your tongue. This one isn’t over flavored, but may be a tad under-flavored.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Hazy muddled orange with a 2-finger head. Poor retention and lacing. Not much pumpkin in the aroma but the spice mix is not overbearing either. Some nutmeg and a little bit of cinnamon. Taste is subtle pumpkin in the finish, preceded by green apple and a spicy spice mix. Lots of cinnamon. Medium bodied.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2008
From a 12 ounce bottle from Belmont Station in PDX--Rustic orange-copper body with a thin, soft off-white head. Obvious pumpkin-pie spice nose. A tad tart-sweet. The flavor starts with a stinging to the front of the tongue. Toward the middle of the tongue, the acidic and carbonic profile is realized. By the time the back of the tongue is introduced, the marzen-looking and malt-driven English-esque ale disappoints some. Not sure what to make of this beer. Red Sox tied with Anaheim of LA in the 9th inning.

Multiple drafts at HTPD Octoberfest. Poured a dark amber with an off white head that had some nice staying power. Malty spicey aroma with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, and corriander with what appears to be a chocolate malt base. Average to slightly strong carbonation with a medium to full mouthfeel. Flavor has a good dose of pumpkin and spice but not overpowering. Pretty good stuff and it was nice to have some decent beer choices at a PBA picnic.

Man I love a good pumpkin beer. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a large white head. Immediate aroma of nutmeg, pumpkin pie, cinnamon and molasses. Taste is rich with pumpkin, spices and grahm cracker like flavors. Mouthfeel is creamy, pleasent- overall flavors are great. A really nice beer.
