Had this brew a few times, my favorite being from a firkin at a local brew fest. It was just awesome from a cask. One of my favorite pumpkin seasonal I look forward to it every year. Try it on cask if you can

Brilliant clear light orange. LIght fizzy head,leaving a ring fairly shortly after with light soapy/sugary lace. Pungent aroma hop like pungency dankish earthy,light earthy light fruit tones. Mild Orange citrus. Refined complex spice. Light pie crust breadiness.Even some woody oak almost bourbon like quality to it. Quite impressive aroma for a pumpkin. Taste is light medium body with light slickness,light caramel.Spice is a bit more in flavor with pumpkin tannin,fairly easy drinking and for only 4.4% this is really impressive on this lighter level. MIld orange tone. Nice mellow but noticable pumpkin flavor with the right amount of spice. All the flavors meld well and nothing really sticks out like most pumpkin ales when you get hit with a certain heavy spice.

on tap at gabf. Smells like a pumpkin pie with buttery graham cracker crust, and tastes like it too! clearly going for the pumpkin pie flavor, this beer includes many pie spices, nice hefty palate, and great malt presence. a true delight.

Hazy orange gold. Good pumpkin, nutmeg and toast on the nose. Medium-bodied, well balanced palate with great pumpkin flavors and no sweetness.

A very good pumpkin ale. This one is all about the pumpkin. Pumpkin through and through. Mediim body. The spices are very light and the pumpkin shines. I’d like to see a double version of this.

A terrific pumpkin ale, was surprised to see this rated a little low. the aroma and color are all exactly what i’d want for a pumpkin ale, the taste could be a little higher in abv, a little more kick, but still great.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 I hated this last year, but it’s excellent now. Lots and lots of pumpkin flavor, with good spice and hops, and balanced malt. A joy to drink.
