Ugly BMC-esque gold pour w/zero heard or lace. Smells ok, some spices, pumpkins in the background. Tastes off. A kiss of tartness (wtf?!) then turns watery. Julie nailed it: tastes like a pumpkin Kolsch. Darwenus (1159) - Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Wtf Foothills, I expect better from you guys.
Pours a clear, muted orange with hardly any head. The aroma is bright and sweet. Lots of nutmeg and pumpkin. It’s all vaguely synthetic smelling, but it doesn’t smell bad at all. Kiinda like a pumpkin scented candle. The flavor is rich and slightly sweet. More of that pumpkin flavor that seems artificial but not unpleasant. I won’t have another one, but I didn’t mind this. timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle from Justin. Thanks bro! Aroma is nice...nutmeg, ginger, allspice etc and some pumpkin in the nose. Flavor loses pumpkin and any sign of fullness (very thin), but the spice stays about 70% of the nose. Effervescent and somewhat satisfying as a lawnmower beer. Otherwise, fair beer.

Fairly light for a pumpkin beer but this is good enough for the style. Some weird aftertastes Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - OCT 13, 2013
From a bottle.The pour is a orange with a minium white head with a strong spice notes then ginger followed by pumpkin flavors.Thin body and clear.

Nice crystal clear light amber pour, with s thin off white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice with baked pumpkin. Taste is mostly the the same, with the spices taking front seat and pumpkin in the background. Not much hop taste. Light-medium body, average carbonation. Really it is over-spiced in my opinion. Not bad.. but not great. Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2012
At the brewpub for $3 pints, and started out with this one. My first (and probably only) Pumpkin Ale of the season. Came out a deep dark orange, with a nice frothy cap. The nose is sweet with pumkin spice, nutmeg, cinnamon - not surprising. Slick feel. Sweet pumpkin, that isn’t as artificial-tasting as I remember. The pumpkin is also a little more subtle, but in its place there is an overwhelming spice profile, that isn’t all that refreshing. All-in-all though, it’s not a bad autumn drink, but I couldn’t see myself having any more than 1 of these at a time, or even more than 1 in a season for that matter. woodychevy (874) - - MAR 20, 2014
Overwhelming spice and underwhelming pumpkin. Might have been more tolerable a bit warmer on a cool fall evening- just doesn’t taste like spring. Pours a decent copper color with a small head (actually looked great). Nose is all spice. Too much nutmeg and a bit sharp with the ginger. A bit of an unpleasant sweetness as well. I prefer to have beer with a slice of pumpkin pie- rather than the two -in-one package as offered here. icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Hints of spice, but mostly vegative and pilsener aroma. Light, fairly thin mouthfeel. tillmac62 (756) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2016
Pours a clear golden with a bit of amber. Normal head volume and lacing, outstanding retention.
Rich outstanding nose of pumpkin, spices (nutmeg, clove, ginger) and light biscuit malt.
Light body with a texture slightly smoother than water. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a prickly burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is very good, but is a bit light on intensity and is very well balanced. Spices appear in a blended fashion and never really separate. The middle hints at bitterness and provides a balancing biscuit. The finish is a slow light spicy fade.
