A bit of vegetal pumpkin with cinnamon and cloves in the aroma from a fairly dark amber body with tan head. Cloves and nutmeg kick into high gear along with cinnamon in the taste and a brown sugar sweetness. There’s a sour note that comes up mid-palate that’s distracting and I’m guessing that comes from the pumpkin. Body is a bit thin and watery. Finishes with a lot of spice but not overwhelmingly so. The first commercial pumpkin ale I can remember, but not the best, and also not the worst.

Bottle pour. The beer is a darker copper color. Clear. White head. The aroma has nice levels of nutmeg and a good sweetness. More mild spice. Good graham cracker notes. Medium body and medium carbonation.

12 oz bottle. Sweet autumn aroma. Poured a slightly unfiltered deep amber color with a beige head and nice head retention. Taste of cinnamon, spice, pumpkin, and clove. Average carbonation, medium body. Slightly unpleasant lingering spice on the palate in my opinion. All in all though, one of the best smelling pumpkin beers around with a not too shabby flavor to boot. Cheers

Pours two fingers of head on a dark body. The aroma is brown sugar, smoke, pumpkin and milk. The taste is bread and mild spice. The texture is thicker and smooth. Nice.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Aromas of pumpkin pie, clove, cinnamon all present on the nose. Average carbonation but texture is a little too thin. Light to medium body and slightly sweet on the palate. Just OK.

superspak (5606) - Michigan, USA - FEB 10, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/13/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of pumpkin, toasted biscuit, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and solid complexity of bready malt, pumpkin, and spice notes; with solid strength. Taste of pumpkin, toasted biscuit, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, toasted biscuit, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and solid robustness of bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is ok. A little watered down feeling in mouthfeel, but not bad. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid pumpkin ale. All around good balance and solid robustness/complexity of bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
