jackl (7355) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Cville. The pours deep orange amber with a small off-white head. The nose is quite spicy. Loads of ginger, cinnamon. Cocoa powder. Sweet toffee and vanilla. The taste is rich caramel. Quite flavorful malty flavors that dont come across as too flabby. More spices. Cinnamon, brown sugar. Pepper. Some toasted nut. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, a really nice pumpkin beer. Nice.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-caramel color with a small foamy off white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was sweet nutmeg, cinnamon and faint tangy bread and caramel. The flavor was strong pumpkin pie spices - mostly nutmeg and cinnamon and had undertones of bread and caramel. Spices overwhelm. Long sweet and tangy finish with lingering spices. Medium body. Decent.

12 oz bottle courtesy of an extra from TheEpeeist. Chris.. you truly are awesome. Pours a copper reddish dark brown, fairly hazy, a moderate tannish head that stays at a decent level, laces satisfactorily. Aromas are pumkin puree, vanilla, a touch of cinnamon, caramel and nutmeg come on a bit stronger, but I really do get the pumpkin behind all the spices in this one a bit more. Spices stand up fairly potent, as smoother sweet malts of caramel, toffee, vanilla fill in behind. Initial is medium bodied, preaching cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread, vanilla, and caramel, as the actual pumpkin does fall a bit behind. Creamy sweetness mixed with potent spices, a smooth caramel, vanilla, and pie crust, with pumpkin and spice. Very light bitterness on the back of the palate, lingering spice and sweetness. Overall, a pretty good pumpkin brew in my opinion.. very quaffable and very pie-like. Probably couldnt drink more than 1, 2 tops, of these.. but they are tasty.

Strykzone (7022) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Sampled at gabf. Looks like most pumpkin beers. I smell spices but also a hint if hops. Pumpkin flavor leads with those fall spices. Interestng euro hop bitterness that few have. Dryness. The hops maje a difference.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle: Amber, thin sudsy white head, little lacing. Cinnamon, slight mulled spiced wine as well on the nose. Has a bit of raisin as well. Strong spices on the tongue, but not sharp or bright. Seems a little muddled, but not bad. Does retain that raisin and mulled spiced wine character tho. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finishes a little flat, spices are there but not strong or bright. Has a bit of that raisin and mulled spiced wine lingering. A little different, but a nice change.

4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Hazy orangish brown with off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin, spices, light caramel. Tastes of big pumpkin, cinnamon, spices, caramel. Medium body with a dry finish. One of my favorite pumpkin ales.

Iphonephan (6603) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2012
On draft at whole foods in falls church. Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Bubble gum aroma. Flavor is a nice balance - neither pumpkin or spice are overwhelming. A bit sweet but very drinkable.

Braudog (6518) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Draft at Green Leafe. Dark, rusty orange with just a whisper of a whipped cream head. This drinks with a mellow pumpkin tinge, appearing mostly in the finish. Quite drinkable, and a nice easy-going introduction to the concept of gourds in beer to someone who hasnt tried it before. (#4366, 11/27/2011)
