A nice and delicious pumpkin beer. I love the fall and pumpkin beers and this is a strong, but not exceptional offering. Aroma was average. Mostly pumpkin with a hint of vanilla. Pour was a nice light brownb with a one finger off white head. Taste was a nice mix of nutmeg, pumpkin and spices but not very full after initial impact. Very strong and full carbonation that feels like it’s poking holes in the tongue. I would consider this a summer "transition to fall" beer because there is heavy carbonation and a light mouthfeel, yet the pumpkin and spices hint on the season to come.

12oz bottle. Pour is an amber orange, with a thin head of lacy white cream. The aroma is quite potent, with plenty of pumpkin-y notes. But rather than pumpkin pie spices, the aroma is more like that of a cooked pumpkin and maybe just a touch of spice. The flavors are also fairly potent with some odd unidentifiable notes in the finish. Overall its drinkable, but not one I will seek out again.

Pours a three finger beige head that fades slowly to a thin layer, leaving a good lace. Nearly clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Pumpkin nose. Flavor is pumpkin and some citrus, hints of a bitter finish. $1.45 for a 12oz bottle from Cabot Quechee Store Quechee, VT.

(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.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - 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.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear orange color with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is chock full of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is very spicy and pumpkin-y at the beginning with a sweet and spicy middle and a very sweet finish with a lot of cinnamon. Quite nice.

Nice aroma. Pours orangey of course. Lots of spice. I rather liked it but for some reason I just like all pumpkin ales.

Bottle. Pours a clear light orange brown with a medium sized white to beige head. Heavy nutmeg, cinnamon, and a bit of clove and pumpkin flesh. Medium bodied, big spice and malt/grain flavors. Big spicy cinnamon finish. Crisp and clean. Pretty good, and a nice light change from some of the boozier pumpkin ales I seem to have been having this season.
