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 (3904) - 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.

Draft. Clear light amber color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of subtle cinnamon. Taste is dilute nutmeg. Thin.

Lost my notes at the tasting, just have the numbers. Do remember that I was hoping for a lot more. It’s not bad for a lighter pumpkin, I just have high expectations in the style. paintedmaple (671) - People’s Republic of Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 13, 2012
On tap at Blackthorn Pub, Holly,Mi...Decently balanced and drinkable pumpkin beer. Spices are not overwhelming and the pumpkin comes though nicely in this very drinkable fall offering. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle. Not really a fan of this one. WAY too spicy in the nose, with the spices almost punching you in the face. The taste is far far muted comparatively, but not the type of flavor palate I like. You really get the cloves and spices in this, and far too much for me. Terp1977 (63) - Frederick, Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. Very drinkable but not overly flavorful. Light body, good head, but more like a light beer then a solid pumpkin.

Pint at Tribeca Tavern. Ok aroma, sweet, spice.. weak. Nutmeg, little pumpkin. Brownish orange color, good head that faded quick. Spotty lace. Sweet spiced flavor. Lighter body, smooth slick mouthfeel, sweet finish. Meh, weak on aroma and flavor. Tap handle says "mother pumpkin" nothing particularly worthwhile to say, Meh.
