Aroma is a smooth pumpkin with background elements of Autumn spices. Color is a very nice combination of orange and brown, very uniform and warming. Initial bite leads you to believe that the beer will be bitter, but it quickly subsides and gives way to comfortable notes of baked pumpkin, vanilla, and cinnamon. Finishes with a slight nuttiness. Very palatable & well-rounded. No head and minimal carbonation. Extremely enjoyable to the last drop.

Aroma: Smells of fresh pumpkin--not sweet or cloying like pumpkin spice and sugar, but like a ripe pumpkin with hints of spice behind it. Appearance: Cloudy orange with a thin, white head. Taste: Light sweetness balanced by a light sourness. Very well balanced and even all the way through. Palate: Medium body, thick, slick texture, average carbonation, long finish. Overall: I’m very impressed by this beer, as the pumpkin takes over the taste, not the spices. This is clearly made with real pumpkins, and they take center stage. This is exactly what I would expect from a pumpkin beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6372) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a large orange-tan head. The aroma was sweet, spicy and had notes of orange, nutmeg and cinnamon. Wonderful nose! The flavor was sweet spicy cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of orange and a long tangy and spicy and dry finish. Full bodied. Very nice.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Dark golden color beer with thin white head. Aroma of doughy yeast along with some mild pumpkin and cloves among other spices. Taste is very lightly sweet and extremely lightly bitter. Light to medium bodied beer with a fairly thin texture. Average carbonation and nice finish which lingers slightly. Mild pumpkin flavor complemented by light spices especially clove. I enjoy and look forward to many pumpkin ales. This is one of my favorites due to its simplicity and subtle balance. Pumpkin flavor is surely present and not overwhelmed by an influx of spices and sweetness. Simply a pure, solid pumpkin ale. I generally enjoy more spices than none, but this beer is well balanced.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into pint glass. It has a bottled on date of 9-10-08 and it was sampled on 9-12-09. Wow, I must have found a one year old bottle. Appearance: The body had a deep amber color with some visible carbonation. The head on top was off white in color, tall and slowly faded down to thin ring of lace. On the way down the glass it left behind some nice lace rings. Smell: The nose had notes of sweet malt, rich pumpkin meat and pumpkin pie spice with ginger being the stand out. Taste/Palate: Its spice character is up front and center with ginger and then cinnamon standing out. Next up is a sweet malty middle with noticeable roasted pumpkin flesh notes. Hop flavor also mixes in and adds to the spicy character. The finish has a nice balance of all its components and slowly fades off the tongue. It has a rich smooth texture with nice carbonation and a solid medium to full body. Notes: I really enjoyed this one year old bottle of pumpkin ale. This probably is not a style known for ageing but it was still quite good. The organic pumpkin flavor was very nice and noticeable with a good balance of spice, hops and malt.

Full bodied orange with nice white clouds of head. Smells of fresh pumpkin, light biscuit malt, white bread. Tastes of nice fresh pumpkin. Slightly bitter notes in the back of the mouth and almost dry. Quality.
