The aroma is full of spices and pumpkin, however the taste leaves a little to be desired. It is very bitter, and not as flavorful as I was hoping.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Great Pumppkin ale (withouut the ’Will Stevens’ on label). The aroma was deep with spice and a hint of pumpkin. The taste bordered on too much spice, but was just short of overboard. I liked the sensation on the palate. Sensed ginger and clove. Overall, A seasonal winner. Great for the cool fall evening.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle as "Wolaver’s Organic Pumpkin Ale". Pours a slightly hazed copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of nutmeg and pumpkin spices plus a touch of malt. Light body with a sweet spiced character of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin. The finish is malty with a short cinnamon aftertaste. Average overall.

Tap. Pours hazy copper with thin, creamy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, cookie and caramel malts, floral hops, and light vanilla. Flavor is mostly sweet malts and pumpkin with some nutmeg and spice; flavor leaves quickly leaving a somewhat bland finish. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

boxofrane (2113) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear copper with almost no head and a little carbonation. The aroma has nutmeg, cinnamon, and a little pumpkin. The taste is enjoyable with pumpkin at the front of the tongue with a cinnamon kick on the finish. middle of the road.

sampled during an impromptu pumpkin tasting. pours an orange hue. scent is of cinnamon, nutmeg, and malt. not much pumpkin character. taste is similar but not as interesting as the nose. mouth is light, not a bad beer for the season so long as the price is right.

Will Steven’s Pumpkin Ale pours a deep clear copper color with minimal head and no lacing. The aroma is defintely on the spicy side with small amounts of pumpkin coming through. Cinnamon, cloves, and brown sugar are the main aromas. Same really goes for the taste. Spices dominate. Cinnamon came to mind at first, followed by the cloves and brown sugar. The pumpkin is there but is hiding most of the time. Up front are the spices and in the end the spices linger on the tongue. The mouthfeel is very clean, medium bodied, and goes down easy. This is not a pumpkin ale to write home about but I’m glad I got to try it. There is just so much better out there.
