12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small white head that dissipates quickly. A sweet pumpkin nose, light spices. The flavor is nice; smooth and easy pumpkin, light spices, almost musty. A nice pumpkin ale- I appreciate these from time to time.

Bright and murky soft orange glowing color with a small white head, but an overall attractive appearance. Nose is pumpkin-soap and potpourri, craft-store or bathroom store smells... perfumy oranges, ginger, apple, pumpkin and overripe peaches. Dear lord it tastes just downright horrible... like sucking on designer soap, the stuff that you’re not supposed to use as soap... waxy, syrupy and soapy, this is pretty god damn disgusting... end of rating.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent copper with good carbonation and off-white lacing. Smells and tastes alright; light and pumpkin spice with an average mouthfeel. More lagerish, so it doesn’t weigh you down (filtered?). Exceeded my expectations.

Disappointing pumpkin ale considering how good the orange ale is. It’s all nutmeg and cinnamon with VERY subtle pumpkin.

Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. Pretty full aroma of cinnamon and spices, pumpernickel, faint ginger bread, some pumpkin and mellow sweet dark fruitiness. The carbonation creates and initial punch of harshness that quickly rolls into pumpkin, cinnamon and all spice. By midway smooth mild pumpkin and maltiness give way to another wave of wintery spices and ginger bread. A little out of the can pumpkin feel and a bit heavy on the spices for my taste.

A actual pumkin ale that smells and tastes just like pumpkin ale. Full of many spice tastes, which might be the only downside to this drink.

Sometimes pumpkin beers are good fro the flavour, sometimes because they don’t have flavour.. this is the latter .. Pours a murky orange brown .. light foam ,,no real sticky lacing .. muddles sweet maple and very light spice .. one of the better pumpkin brews i’ve had but ehh.. the best piece of meat the preist had was nun..

Sample at the pumpkin beer tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 9/30/10. Clear orange color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, corn and pumpkin pie spice. Malt and corn flavor with subtle spice and a slight vegetal quality.
