Pint on tap. Nice pie spice aroma with light baked pumpkin. Taste is the same, with a nice balance between the spices and pumpkin and some leafy hop. Light-medium body has average carbonation and is well balanced. Well served pumpkin that you could easily have more than one of since its not over-spiced like so many are.

Shag (2941) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Amber color with a white head. Aroma contains caramel, cinnamon, allspices. Think pumpkin flavored stuff. Very similar to an amber ale without the spice. Easy drinking and not overdone on spice.

maxwelldeux (4373) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small head on it. Nose has your typical pumpkin spice palate, though I find the aroma to be particularly intense. Taste is pretty well balanced, though the spices dominate any flavor. OK, but nothing special.

strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle. Clear orange beer with very thin head. Lots of perfumy aroma, heavy cloves and nutmeg -- a little too much. More released in the taste. Overall okay, but too much of the spice to be great.

jsquire (4363) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Clear amber color with a frothy off white head. Big spicy nose with nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Soft mouth feel. Lots of dusty spice, with nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon with some coarse bread underneath. If you like spiced seasonals then this is the beer for you.

chinchill (4759) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Undated 12 oz bottle from Foothills Brewing. Very good reason to believe this is a 2013 vintage. ABV listed as 5.3% with IBU = 5.2. Lower ABV and flavor strength than the Terrapin Pumpkinfest that proceeded it, but it has very similar spicing; both featuring nutmeg, clove, ginger and cinnamon.

tmongoose (2440) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 28, 2013
draft poured medium to dark orange with white head. the aroma of spices, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice dominate. the flavor is the same plus you get some pumpkin flavor on the back end. not a bad pumpkin beer but just overloaded with spices which mute the pumpkin flavor.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Purchased on vacation at Atlantic Beach, NC 2013. Pumpkin spice clove scent, lacking appearance due to little head, lighter body crisp feel, with a pumpkin nutmeg fronted taste some ginger sneaking in on the back end. Overall, a decent pumpkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2013
On tap at Foothills. Orange colored pour with a white head. Spicy smell, full of nutmeg and cinnamon. Smooth and pretty easy to drink - big amount of spice comes through but its not overwhelming. Lively and good - much better than the previous batch from the old Carolina brewery.
