Just what you expect from a pumpkin ale. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. Pumpkin. Might be served in a glass with sugar on the rim.

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.

A: Pumpkin. spice. cinnamon. A: looks ok. Brownish amber color. Little head. T: Tastes alright. A little weak. Pumpkin is hardly noticable. Lots of spice. Finish is dull. P: A little dull. Thin. Not bad... too spicy. Overall this is an ok beer. Pumpkin beers are always a little hit and miss... mostly miss. This is an alright easy drinking beer but nothing special.

Poured from a cold bottle. Clear orange color, small fizzy white head. Smells off nutmeg and cinnamon. Watery hops flavor with a strong nutmeg addition, light bodied crisp beer.

Bottle. Light orange color. Small head, no lace and lots of tiny bubbles. Aroma is typical pumpkin ale, not as strong. Taste, also typical pumpkin ale but kind of bland.

Well, it smells nice, I’ll give it that. Actually, that’s a little too dismissive - It’s really not bad, in the context of pumpkin beer. There is some depth and real beer character, as well. Nice citrusy hop bite cuts through the heavy spices.

From a 12 bottle served in Buxton NC. Pumpkin pie spice aroma. Pours orange gold with an off white head. Flavors of cinnamon, cloves and allspice with a hint of ginger. Malty with a crisp dry finish.

Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pumpkin and spice are the primary aromas. Pours a clear amber with a thin lasting white head and no lacing. The tastes is spice dominate. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice with hints of pumpkin. Medium-light body with crisp carbonation. Overall, ok but I have had more balanced pumpkin ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Amber with small head. Light, thin body, but spicing is well done with a lot of clove.

A good fall beer with a good cinnamon taste and the right amount of other flavored
