Maybe a bad pour/batch. But not a superstrong pumpkin ale. The elements were there, but just was not balanced well. Too much cinnamon too, and flat taste. Ill pass over for better pumpkin options.

Bottle from trio. Pours hazy golden with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has a bit of cinnamon and a bit of nutmeg. Very little gourd to this guy. The taste has a bit of the spices from the nose but ends with a very astringent flavor. Not good and too light for the roughness to be covered.

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.

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.

GTAEgeek (2117) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours ruby brown, with a thin head. The aroma is pumpkin and yams, brown sugar, cloves, and some light cinnamon. Very sweet, some mellow vegetal and spice notes. Medium body, sticky, and a little warming. This is a nice, understated pumpkin beer. Mellow spice and an easy flavor.

Awesome fall spices led by strong nutmeg. Ample malt backbone carries the spices to a lightly sweet but drying finish. This orange-hued beer is pretty, but lacks much head. Otherwise, a fantastic take on this Autumnal pleaser.

Aroma: Pumpkin is a little obscured by nutmeg, ginger and clove, but the spices are very pleasant. Appearance: Still copper body with a ring of bone coloured head. Flavor: Really quite gingery and sharp; flavors seem at war instead of in harmony. The ginger wins. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: An uneven showing. Thanks to my friend Robert for bring a bottle back from his travels.

Weak aroma of spice particularly nutmeg, very fizzy, with a caramel colour. Nice spicy taste with a strong nutmeg taste. Spicy palate.

12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Pours yellowish-orange with a quick white head. Roasted pumpkin with light pumpkin pie spices on the nose. Good pumpkin flavor with muted cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and allspice. Finishes clean with only traces of the spices clinging to the palate. One of the better pumpkin beers I have tried.
