Bottle. Enjoy by: 12/15/13. A hazy copper pour with a small beige head. Pumpkin pie with all the usual spices, vanilla cream, caramel, and brown sugar comprise the aroma. Medium-bodied. Creamy pumpkin pie, caramel, and plenty of vanilla upfront in the taste. A toasted/mildly burnt graininess is present at the end. Some gingerbread and pumpkin pie spice too. A surprising amount of booziness is present given the relatively low ABV. Alright. sitzds (318) - - SEP 29, 2013
Poured from bottle. Appearance is cloudy orange/amber. Aroma is full of pumpkin pie spices: nutmeg, cinnamon, clove; and a bubblegum note that may be the toasted barley. Flavors match the aromas with some pumpkin flavor on top of the spices. Medium body. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours a murky burnt orange with ring of near white head. Nose is surprisingly citrusy with hint of clove. Flavor is not so much pumpkin as it is cinnamon and wheat. Not bad, but there are definitely some better pumpkin beers out theres. 60minuteman (1764) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2013
A good pumpkin character. Clear color with minimal head and lace. Spicy and hoppy but kept to a minimum. Hkrivera (153) - Guaynabo, PUERTO RICO - SEP 25, 2013
Oktoberfest rejoice ! This pumpkin ale is very flavorful, strong to the palate. If you love the pumpkin flavor, you will not go wrong with this one as your taste buds will be satisfied. Spicy, refreshing, will remind you of a pumpkin pie!

12 ounce bottle from Kenny. This beer pours hazy pumpkin color and has a smallish off white head. I smell pumpkin and earth with just a little spice. More spice is tasted with nutmeg in front. Some brightness underneath and some bitterness. Pumpkin flavor. Spices tend to grow with warming and it begins to taste like a pumpkin pie. Cinnamon. This almost became a spice bomb to the end and they were almost cloying. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a copper color with a small off white head. The nose has a mix of pumpkin spices with lighter gourd notes. Fairly crisp on the palate which is a little unique for the style. Some yeast, subdued spice, a little canned pumpkin flavor, and light florals. A lighter, different take on the style. Not bad.

i liked this. Nice nutmeg, cinnamon, gingerbread aroma. Taste is a nice powerful spice, pumpkin, nutmeg. decent body. bit of a spice aftertaste. Jow (3980) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Draft at Draught 55. Pours orange with nice nose of pumpkin spicing. Tastes of traditional pumpkin ale spices like nutmeg, cloves, and pumpkin pie filling andthey are in nice balance. You also get malt, caramel, and earth. Touch light but overall tasty. xmoon2112 (2) - Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2013 does not count
This had the right balance of sweet vs spice and hops. Just a burst of flavor from the scent to the taste and after taste. The aftertaste of pumpkin is what made me give it higher ratings.
