I am not a fruit beer person but this is a great beer. it is the 12th pumpkin beer I have tried this season and definately the best. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s "Has anyone seen my stool?" tasting.patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Scary looking label. Imagine opening a door and that looking back at you. Orange copper coloured with a thin but lasting beige head. Lots of, almost sickly, caramalt and some all too assertive pumpkin and cinnamon. I must point out, I hate pumpkin, especially in beer. Really not my thing at all. If you like pumpkin, ignore this rate entirely and move on to the next.
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with Vin and Sean last Thursday. Picked from Old American Ale House on 20th and Brandywine. Pours a bright, yet slightly hazy, copper orange with a gentle, supple, frothy off-white head. Aroma of nutmeg, clove, pepper, vanilla beans, fresh hops, pine, and hints of pumpkin bread dough. Medium bodied with a tight, spicy, bold palate. Nice warmth and spice throughout the sip; tons of ginger snap heat in the finish. Excellent pumpkin ale. Much more spice oriented than true pumpkin, however. italianjohn (3228) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2010

Draft from swift half. Doesn’t really go well with food. Very good alone but pumpking absolutely owns this... All hail pumpking. mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
Sampled at GCBF ’10, pours dark orangey amber with a beige head. Aroma and flavours of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Not bad. Capa (3401) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2010
A very nice amber/copper color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is spices, light pumpkin, cinnamon, light clove, and some sweet malts. Medium bodied. Flavor has a nice cinnamon burn to it with gentle pumpkin, light spice, some ginger, clove, and medium malty sweetness. A real nice pumpkin beer that is definitely on the spicy side.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2010 Pours a clear garnet/copper with thin cream colored head. Sweet redolent aromas of pumpkin, clove, brown sugar, ginger, and molasses cookie. Light sweetness and tartness, with notes of clove, ginger, fruit, and pumpkin, lightly bitter coffee finish. Medium body and mild carbonation. Becomes richer as it warms. Taste doesn’t quite deliver on the aroma but still quite good.
