Draft from Thirsty Monk in Asheville, labeled "Mother Pumpkin" for some reason, but with the same description above. Okay, so it’s a pumpkin beer, but it felt lighter than most, with more ginger and cinnamon. I did not dislike it, so that’s saying something. rob6239 (677) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2012
Pours good amber colour with a little head to hold in the aroma. Smells good with the pumpkin spices. Tastes mild - a tad spicy too. Easy drinking. rnlanders (11) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Among pumpkin ales, one of my favorites so far. Lots of spices, not very hoppy. Quite smooth and easy to drink - I think the best overall word would be "pleasant." keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2012

Appearance: The body is very clear with a dark amber hue, it is absolutely placid though. A light tan head is on top with decent retention and a heavy coating sits on top.
Aroma: Spices dominate the flavor without being too assertive with cinnamon and nutmeg and a sweet malt backing.
Taste: Sweet and balanced rather well, malts and a cinnamon and nutmeg backing, maybe some cloves.
Palate: Medium bodied with light stabbing carbonation.
Overall: Not a bad pumpkin beer at all actually, worth trying and deciding for yourself.
Bottle. Pours amber. Medium sized white head. Strong spice aroma. Some lacing. Spice also in the flavor and mouthfeel, but less intense. More spice then pumpkin. A bit thin. Very drinkable, just not memorable.

Bottle, pours a light brown, aroma is a nice spice. Lots of cinnimon and nutmeg in the flavour, a nice backbone and a easy drinking beer roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a clear dark orange amber with medium foamy offwhite head. Aroma is cloves nutmeg and bit of stale malt. Flavor is pretty light on the palate, sweet malt base, tad bit of dry metallic notes, then a very slight spiced pumpkin finish. Overall I’d say this is a slightly below average pumpkin ale.

Nice aroma, cinnamon and nutmeg are present. Pours a clear bronze with a white two finger head. Taste is kind of bland and unbalanced. Palate is thin. Overall, if you are looking for that crisp fall or pumpkin beer, you’ll want to at least give it a shot. LilBeerDoctor (4193) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear dark orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) and sweet malt. Flavor is less spicy than the nose with more of the sweet bready malt coming through. A little bland, boring, and sweet. Drinkable, but not the best representation of the style.
