Bottle. Poured a clear dark orange/amber color. The head was thin and off white. Smelled of pumpkin cookie, brown sugar, spicy malt, and nutmeg. Medium bodied and slightly sweet. Tasted of buttered brown sugar, cinnamon, and a bit of pumpkin.

22oz bottle. Pours a clear, ruby-amber colored body with a finger-width, creamy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is very spicy, but has a nice malt sweetness to back it up. Plenty of cinnamon and ginger with some nutmeg, clove, and allspice as described. Just like a pumpkin pie and very pleasant. Flavor is nice, but doesnt seem to have the complexity that the aroma offered. Lots of pumpkin, clove, and cinnamon with a sweeter, pie crust caramel. Finishes somewhat dry and lightly spiced with a bit of a minty vanilla and a light, herbal bitterness. Aftertaste lingers for a moderate duration after a medium body that has a bit of a watery feel at times and light amount of carbonation. Overall, a decent pumpkin ale. The aroma is really nice while the flavor is solid, but has a few things that could use work. Well balanced and easy drinking while never getting too sweet or spicy. Not bad.

Draft @ Blind Tiger. Orange pour with some head. Pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla and other spices notes. Body is a little light for my taste.

22 oz bottle. Hazy orange color with a light head. Plenty of pumpkin and pie spices in the aroma. The spice flavor continues into the taste but is overpowered by a massive amount of gourd flavor. A bit more bitter than I expected too. I was excited for this one but found it ultimately disappointing. I guess I was looking for more pie and less gourd and bitterness.

10th October 2008. GABF. Clear brown beer. Tastes of pumpkin and not just spice which is always a result with this style. The spice is pleasingly subtle. Not bitter or dry.

scoth (671) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Pours medium orange-brown, with a medium beige head, very fine and lasting lacing. Strong pumpkin pie aroma, nutmeg, allspice, clove, and pumpkin. Medium-light body, creamy and smooth. More pumpkin pie spice flavors, but only mildly sweet, theres also a hint of licorice, and some citrus to help keep things balanced. Overall quite nice; strongly spicy, but not overpowering in moderation.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2009
A ruddy color with faint white head. A nice spicy aroma with faint pumpkin. The body has a faint metallic flavor that cuts thorugh what would otherwise be a very pleasant pumpkin body. The spice is mild in the body but intense on the finish.

22 ounce bottle courtesy of RiversideAK. Thanks! Rating #200 for this beer. Yay! Pours a vibrant auburn color with a very, very light haze. Nice aroma of strong pumpkin and a nice bouquet of spices including cinnamon, vanilla, clove. Taste is pumpkin, squash, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, other spices including a peppery note. Well balanced. Medium bodied. Good pumpkin beer.

Ernest (7477) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie), with notes of sawdust, cooked eggs, nutmeg/allspice/cinnamon, sweet potato. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rather bland and simple. The sawdust and eggs in the nose are really odd, but very distinctive and very unpleasant. Blah.
