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.

Braudog (6898) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. Nice fall color, orange-amber, with a thin head. The pumpkin aroma gets to the olfactory glands as soon as the cap’s off the bottle. The beer drinks with a nice balanced delivery of some gourd, cinnamon and spice. Decent. (#5322, 11/10/2013)

tillmac62 (767) - 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.

Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Average head retention. Aroma of vibrant spices including ginger, some citrus, pumpkin and a mild glue note. The taste is earth, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, doughy malts and a tart finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

emacgee (4711) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Clean copper gold pour with one finger of off white head. Spicy nose with a nice biscuity/toasted grain character. Grainy and lightly herbal in the flavor with some spice coming through for sure.

ozark123 (9) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2012 does not count
A solid, balanced spiced ale. This is more about the spices (dominant) then the pumpkin (secondary) flavors. Smooth, easy drinking, Glad to see this being brewed back in NC by people who really love making beer.

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle:   Amberish, a bit dirty, fine sediment floats about, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Nose of cinnamon and apple, some clove as well.   Spicy on the tongue, cinnamon, nutmeg, the aformentioned clove (a bit stronger here), with a touch of ginger (just a touch).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate... could stand to be a touch chewier tho.   Finishes very spicy, they linger long past the finish.   Mild to moderate sweetness, provides the right balance.   Nice example of a pumpkin ale, and what I look forward to during the Autumn months.

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.
