nittanytide (286) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Poured orange/copper with a thin, white head. Aroma is sweet pumpkin. Taste is a little bit of pumpkin, but otherwise lacking. Mouthfeel is a little thin. I was hoping for something a little more robust.

gripweed57 (2463) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2017
From old tasting notes. Brassy golden color. Fine bubble white head. Interesting pumpkin malt aroma with a hint of cloves. Flavorful spicy malt flavor with hints of cinnamon and allspice. Yes you can taste the pumpkin. Smooth, mild spicy finish.

chinchill (5025) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Porter Bar goblet. Appearance: clear dark brown body with orange-red highlights and a frothy, medium size tan head that reduces to a ring. Aroma: artificial vanilla and holiday spices with a hints of baked bread and baked winter squash. Flavor: Lightly sweet with some roast pumpkin flavor; over spiced and the spice mix i not very appealing. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body with light carbonation; smooth. Overall: not bad but nearing that mark.

Bottle. Dark Amber. Aroma is pumpkin pie and nutmeg. The taste follows with the typical fall spices, mainly clove. Light and drinkable. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drjohnrock (805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Poured from 12 ounce bottle purchased at Whitey’s Wine and Liquor as part of a mix six pack, tasted on October 11, 2013--review from old notes. Cloudy amber/yellow color, pretty strong pumpkin aroma with some spice notes, moderate pumpkin/spice flavor with enough bitterness to keep things from getting off kilter. Not bad at all but seems to have lost something since I first tried it a few years before this try.

WABeerFiend (413) - - NOV 13, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle today. A: Cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla, and sweet pumpkin pie filling. It smells good, not like a spice bomb. A: Clear red/brown body. 1/2 head that stays. T: Pumpkin pie filling and cloves dominate. Vanilla is subtle. P: It’s way too carbonated and thin. O: The taste is disappointing. I normally like pumpkin beers, but this is a mess. Drain pour.

edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 4, 2015
12 oz bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of pumpkin, cloves and grains. Taste is spice, pumpkin and malts.

2.7
ajnepple (6625) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2015
12 oz single bottle from Wilburs, into a pint glass. Reddish amber and pretty clear appearance with one finger of khaki colored foam. Aroma of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, toasted grain, allspice and clove. Similar flavor, typical pumpkin and fall spiciness with mild sweetness and light bitterness. Light to medium body, a little thin with a crisp feel and a spiced finish. A little over the top, as are most pumpkin beers. Pretty straightforward but fairly easy to drink overall. Pairing: Phish: Split Open and Melt -> Buffalo Bill -> Makisupa Policeman -> Rift, from 10/29/94, Spartanburg Memorial Stadium, SC (21 years ago today)

2.2
TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Pours a clear coppery color with off-white head. Roasted pumpkin, malt, and some squash notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with more vegetal pumpkin than I like.
