Pours murky brown with a large tan head. Smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, hints of nutmeg and allspice. Taste is pumpkin, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, hints of chocolate. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Anderson Valley Fall Hornin’ Pumpkin Ale has a spicy finish. jessekratina (12) - Kansas, USA - OCT 20, 2013

Overall I really liked this beer its thicker more stout consistency was nice and got me in the fall spirit. I would highly recommend this beer. charmarita (66) - AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2016
Poured dark brown from tap with minimal head and faint pumpkin pie aroma. Taste slightly sweet with long finish. Slick in the palate. Perhaps the nicest pumpkin ale I’ve had the pleasure to try. Highly recommended. ShowmemoreBeer (28) - - SEP 18, 2013
Are you kidding me. I wish they all could be California pumpin beeeeers...This one rocked. The first taste was OK but after that each drink was a pumpkin orgasim in my mouth. Tastes good smells good feels good...Its just freaking good. I will have to get a piece of pumpkin bubble yum after this. This is a good drink at work, at home, at church. Any place you want a drink. PUmpkin this bad boy out. I will wait in the field with Linus for the Great PUmpkin if he is handing out this beer. Remember drink safely and if drinking at work make sure you have Big Red just in case your boss comes calling. WABeerFiend (413) - - JAN 20, 2015
Poured from a can into an Anderson Valley tumbler on 11.07.14.
A: Pumpkin, spice, and brown sugar.
A: 2 finger off-white head that is retained. Brown/red body that is mostly opaque. It looks like an amber ale.
T: Cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar dominate. Pumpkin is subtle.
P: Creamy with a crisp back end. It’s on the watery side but it’s refreshing.
O: This is what other breweries should emulate for a pumpkin ale that isn’t in your face with pumpkin flavor. Pumpkin is there, but it’s in the background. Each spice that is commonly found in pumpkin pie is also detectable here unlike other pumpkin ales that try to hold back the pumpkin flavor, but end up being jumbled messes.

Tap @ TacoMac, Cumming. Deep copper color. Khaki foam, huge lace. Spells of pumpkin & pumpkin spice. Huge cinnamon. Creamy texture. Rich caramelized sugars notes, healthy squash, and seasonal spices complete this brew. Cinnamon, clove, & nutmeg linger on. Very delish. I’m so glad autumn is here!

Solid pumpkin, but I am partial to this style. Nothing detracts here. Nothing overly exceptional, either, but that’s OK. Good spice notes. Recommended. Paladares (230) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 7, 2015
Botella. Color rojizo oscuro casi opaco. Aroma muy especiado, principalmente cardamomo, pero con un toque a caramelo y también canela. En boca predomina de nuevo el cardamomo por encima de todo, junto con el dulce aunque leve toque de la calabaza. Si se deja reposar un rato a temperatura ambiente, el cardamomo prácticamente desaparece y queda la fuerza y cuerpo de una ale con su toque justo de amargor. Gran equilibrio y gran cerveza.

Beer #2. 12 oz can. Aroma is as typical as the Uinta, with spices prominent. Has a nice roastiness. Pours a dark mahogany with a medium beige head with good retention and leaves some lacework. Sweet with more savoriness and roastiness than the Uinta. Hops are noticeable in the finish. A little thin. A little more character than beer #1.
