Amber body with too much in the way of head. Aroma is of pumpkin spices, namely cinnoman. Taste is a little bit sweet, and obviously very spicy. Easy drinking through and through. Pumpkin and spice flavors are most prominent towards the finish.

Amyliz4 picked up a sixer of this at Whole Foods in Alexandria. Served in a Dogfish Head Alehouse Punkin pint glass.
Pours a slightly-hazed orange color with a thin light tan head and some slight lacing. The nose carries a bit of pumpkin and spice, mostly cinnamon and clove. The flavor is fairly heavy on the spice with quite a bit of cinnamon. Feel is overwhelmingly full of cinnamon and a bit of clove. Medium body with light sweetness. Not a fan at all.

I THINK it’s this year pumpkin. Strong pumpkin, cloves, and spices in the aroma. Taste is malty with a very mild bitter finish. Caramel malt and pumpkin flavor. Was expecting a bit stronger flavor, good though.

A well crafted ale with real pumpkin flavor. Nutmeg plays a lead role with some cinnamon as support bolsterered by a strong pumpkin guts backbone. Sufficiently malty with a nice round body and a spritzy finish to cleanse the palate. Pours slightly hazy copper with a small but resilient head.

Bottle labelled as "Pumpkin Ale." Pours amber brown. Off white head. Nose/taste of pumpkin, fake all spice and nutmeg. Some metallic notes lingering in background. Light with a thin watery body.

Pumpkin and cinnamon, nose, not strong. Hazy amber thin head. Not strong at all, but the flavor is dominated by pumpkin. Bubble gum is detectable when quaffed. Faint hints of nutmeg in the finish. Nothing objectionable, but rather weak.

Pours a hazy amber color with a quickly disappearing head. Smells and tastes of a pumpkin pie. I liked this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - Reish-brown color with a hint or orange. Little bit less than a finger of head when served that did not last very long.
S - Smelled of pumpkin and other related spices, most notable cinnamon, but not very strong.
T - Pumpkin taste all the way through, but not too strong. Melds in the middle with common pumpkin spice flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg, but overall a bit bland. Leaves a bit of pumpkin aftertaste which was mostly pumpkin.
M - Smooth with light carbonation. Light-medium bodied. A bit too smooth, bordering on watery.
D - Fairly easy to drink, but also is not all that much to it. Tasted like a fairly simple beer.
Serving type: on-tap
