mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUN 2, 2010
A sweet nose. Really not much of a pumpkin flavor. Very tasty spices in it though. Cinnamon and clove and there is a vegetal element in the background and finish. Very good.

ebmalon (62) - Georgia, USA - APR 11, 2010
Tap at the brewery. This is my favorite pumpkin ale. Pours a dark, hazy amber. Nose is clover and hops. Mouth is allspice - just like pumpkin pie. Bright finish with balanced malt/hops. Yum.

bottle thanks to the generous californian bhensonb. poured an amberish color with an almost beige colored head leaving behind some lace. aroma was rather pleasant with pumpkin, nutmeg, and ginger. flavor was pumpkin, ginger root??, and cinnamon. a rather full body with pleasant carbonation.

22 oz. bottle. Pours an off white, tiny bubbled lasting head, with attractive lacing, over a slightly hazy dark amber (SRM 9) body......nose is clove, allspice, cinnamon, ginger, brown sugar.....taste is slightly sweet with the aforementioned spices......mouth feel is medium, carbonation low. This is a well balanced, nicely spicy, not too sweet ale. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7
