Hazy orange-amber in color, small head. Looks nice. Smells like fresh pumpkin pie- and I happen to love pumpkin pie. Lots of spices in there. A nice, but a bit plain flavor. The taste is much weaker than the scent.

Bottle at Andy’s. Nice. Orange and clear in color. Not as spicey at Smuttynose. Mild tasting. Nutmeg. Clove. Pumpkin Pie Spice. Enjoyable. Decent.

This beer just got me through another horrible Thanksgiving with the in-laws. Beer really is the only true solution to all life’s problems. Anyway, this was really tasty. Too many fruit beers over do the sweetness, but this had just the right amount of pumpkin and spices to balance out the alcohol. Not an every day beer, but I’ll get it again next Thanksgiving.

First off, I only wish that I had tried tihs back in Oct/November instead of late February. Fate is fate though so you just go with it. Anyways, I thought this beer was rather intriguing and can’t WAIT to try it again in said months. The aroma wasn’t too bad with some soapy aroma and a little pumpkin thrown in. I didn’t get nutmeg as some reviewers did. As it warmed up a bit I also got a slight metallic nose too. Appearance was just beautiful with a dark maple appearance and a huge head, although the carbonation was fairly lacking. Mouthfeel was nice and soft, although a bit flat. Flavor was pumpkin, but in a way that was pleasing not distracting. There was some maltiness to it that was also nice, although unlike other reviewers I didn’t get (again) any nutmeg or allspice. Perhaps wishful thinking or just that time of year. Overall this was a nice brew that would go wonderfully during Oct/November. Can’t wait!

The pumpkin aroma is unmistakable, the flavor falls just short of how good this smells.

Guest review. Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. The aroma has very little spice, but smells like pumpkin with hints of caramel. Clear appearance with a reddish-amber color. Very little head. Taste is a sharp bitterness at the beginning, then sweet with a clean finish. Almost no spice to detect, but plenty of pumpkin. Easy drinking. Almost a pumpkin-session ale.

Awesome pumpkin beer. I'd buy this again. Pair it with some pumpkin ice cream. Pumpkin beer float.
