COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The secret is in the 2.5 pounds of spice per barrel for this fall brew. We add the pumpkin during the mash at precisely the right time to create just the perfect balance of malt, hops, pumpkin and spice.

Bottle from Crown#6. Pours cloudy/crystal dark orange with rising bubbles and minimal white head. Nose is slight pumpkin spice and some spicy hops. Taste is relatively smooth, slightly carbonated, slight pumpkin flavor and a decent amount of hops. A little odd overall, not my favorite pumpkin brew.

Overall a very good pumpkin beer. Not overall spiced and not overall carbonated. One of the better ones I’ve had

aroma: ahh, there is a strong cinnamon aroma appearance: bright orange amber with a thin head taste: the spice element (nutmeg and cinnamon) is present in the taste and you can feel in on the tongue. this is a well-balanced brew. palate: the brew is medium bodied and flows well. the aftertaste is spiced as well overall: this is a great pumpkin beer. I consider it one of the best I have had to date. (by the way, this is awesome with a slice of pumpkin bread!)

Pours from a 22oz. bomber bottle a medium amber/orange color with a small head that quickly dissolved into a light lacing. The aroma is malty and slightly sweet, with hints of pumpkin pie spices and maybe just a hint of Alcohol. 1st sip brings a taste of pumpkin, malt, and spices. There is a strong bitterness on the finish from a combination of hops, alcohol & spice. The mouth feel is smooth and Medium Body. I notice some Pumpkin Ales choose to have the Pumpkin Taste as the Main Flavor, While others have it as the "Spice". I prefer the spice, and this one is somewhere in the middle. A Decent one, but not in the top 5.

1pt 6fl oz. Bottle Thanks to DChmela and his Super Sixpack Shipper. Nice frothy pour with a huge nose full of cinnamon and spice. Dark amber hazy appearence. Bold spice flavor with a coppery finish. Nice label but there are better pumpkins out there. Happy 100 Ratings! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Cloudy deep orange pour that looks more like vegetable juice than beer. Thin but fluffy white head that fades quickly. A magnificent aroma erupts from the glass after the pour. Pumpkin, tons of cinnamon and ginger, and a little bit of nutmeg. Very sweet and pumpkin pie-ish. Flavor is more pumpkin and less sweet than it smells. Still, it packs a lot of brown sugar and cinnamon flavor. Medium body with perfect carbonation. Fantastic. Maybe not quite as good as Pumking, but damn close, and a perfect accompaniment to anyone’s Thanksgiving dinner or dessert. This year I’m thankful I saved a bottle of each one!

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Poured from bomber into glass. Pours a dark cloudy-ish orange. Small white head, no carbonation. Straight soapy aroma, strange. Pumpkiny flavor and alcohol present for sure. Pretty good but not great.

I guess I’ll take 201 then. Had a few sips of Travlr’s glass. He’s right about the color for sure, and in fact I mostly agree with him. It’s spicy (nutmeg, cinnamon) and pumpkiny in both the smell and taste, but not as sweet as Pumpking, which is important for me.
