12oz bottle @ Knife and Fork (Atlantic City) for 4 year anniversary. I had everything else on the menu before so don't judge!.... Yea that means you Dave! Pours a clear burnt orange color with very minimal fizzy off white head. Aroma of toasted malts and lots of pumpkin pie spices. Taste is slightly yeasty, sour citrus, grain, and pumpkin pie spice.

Got a 6-pack of this one at Walgreens in Vegas. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a fizzy warm cap that disappears quickly and leaves not much lace. Smells like pumpkin purée at first, but then the spices come out (cinnamon, nutmeg). Same for taste with just a little sourness, and less spices. Seems like a decent brew for those who prefer more pumpkin than spices. ziel (76) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2013

8/26/2010. From bottle. Pumpkin, malt and spice aromas. A little sticky sweet. Sweet flavors from the pumpkin, but somewhat muted. Meh... Frecklest00 (7) - Alabama, USA - NOV 6, 2013 does not count
My favorite pumpkin ale. I was surprised to see such a low rating from everyone, since I really enjoyed this beer.

A new pumpkin I’ve never seen. Jazzy orange brown with no real head or lace. Aroma is vegetal with hints of spice, taste follows, more pumpkin than pie. Not bad, but nothing special. craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Poured a clear orange color with a pretty much nonexistent head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and little bit of sweetness. Taste is faint pumpkin and spice. If the taste was more intense this would be outstanding. Texture is watery which subtracts from overall appeal. kidobutai (700) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Not bad! No head, but a nice seasonal cloudy orange hue. Slightly hoppy, an understated pumpkin flavor, but good on an October evening. geologyguy (1687) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Spiced smell...nutmeg...couldnt rate appearance...slightly watery but good spice and pumpkin taste hockey9930 (322) - - OCT 21, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2015 Clear ruby with almost no head. Fairly rich in pumpkin aroma with subtle cacao. Taste is quite spicy with cacao, cinnamon and pepper in addition to the pumpkin. Texture is still a little watery.
I rated this fairly low last year but the beer I have in hand is quite good. Did the beer change or did I change? The oatmeal stout version of this beer is fantastic.
