This was a subtle but tasty rendition of the seasonal pumpkin ale. I prefer a heavy pumpkin ale, but I will admit this beer did a good job of tasting good, yet carrying that fine pumpkin undertone. Very well done. Clap Clap Clap.
Can from Bruisin Ales. Pours dark copper with a beige head. Pie spice is the aroma. Med body, maybe more. Flavor is quite pie spice. I think ginger and allspice may be a bit more than common in pies. And clove! Good stuff. Can’t tast pumpkin, but pumpkin has no taste! :) rxeight (3225) - Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Draft at source. Lots of baking spices, clove, nutmeg. Very low sweetness for the style which is a plus for me. Long lingering clove. thegreenrooster (4518) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Pour is a dark reddish with a large white head. Aroma is pretty much a full assault of pie spices. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is not as much spice as the aroma let on but this is still a pumpkin beer that relies heavily on pie spice. I’m a sucker for a nice spiced ale and this does not disappoint. Also kudos for being lower in alcohol than most pumpkin beers without sacrificing the flavor. BelgianBeerGal (4140) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Draft at FS Columbia. Clear bronze-chestnut color with a thin tan head. Fair aroma of perfume, all spice and a hint of pumpkin. Flavor is a little thin with a big spice and ginger profile. A slight miss for me.

A good pumpkin, lots of cinnamon. Pour a nice bright orange with a white head. Smells of cinnamon and pumpkin. Cinnamon all over the taste, quite spicy too. Had on tap at the brewery.

Poured from can. Pumpkin cinnamon spice aroma. Cream soda appearance. Big cinnamon and dry spice flavor along with the pumpkin. Pretty good. radagast83 (8340) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Draft at Catawba - South Slope. Poured a clear orange color with a small white head. Aroma was light vanilla, nutmeg, other pumpkin spices. Flavor was mostly vanilla, light nutmeg, spicy is not too over the top. Nice change from the norm. ben4321 (6678) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2015

It is a darker orange-brown in color. I thought this was a solid, on-style Pumpkin beer. It wasn’t a favorite for me in the style, something fell a little short of that, but it’s decent enough.
Received from a NC friend by surprise -- Can pours a beautiful orange with a fizzy, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is pronounced nutmeg and cinnamon with a hint of malt. Flavor is similar, cinnamon is a tad bit too strong, the malt profile compliments everything nicely. Overall a pretty good beer. jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Can. Pours an orange color with white head. Pumpkin, cinnamon, spices, nutmeg aromas. Flavor is a little over spiced with a little too much nutmeg (and ginger maybe?). Below average pumpkin beer.
