Draft to tulip. Looks good; a transparent burnt-orange with off-white head. Smells solid; pumpkin and appropriate spices. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid.

Thanks James (Mr. Tampa Pourhouse). Bomber pours clear copper with off white head. The aroma has nice fresh and organic smelling pumpkin pie and graham cracker to go along with a modest amount of cinnamon and faint nutmeg spices. The taste is pretty smooth with notes of sweet pumpkin, a nice layer of graham cracker and growing sharp spicy notes. To midway it picks up a sense of brown sugar and malty sweetness. Well done pumpkin.

BMan1113VR (7919) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle via a trade from Cletus (I think). Pours with a white head and a hazy orange body. Aroma of pumpkin pie, spice, nutmeg and bready notes. Taste is a bit of a let down. Sweet over all with light spice and a large vegital note. Light bubbles and a dry mouthfeel.

radagast83 (7827) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - NOV 8, 2009
On tap. Pours a dark transparent orange color with a very thin white head. Aroma is of pumpkin pie - completely pumpkin and spice. It is very smooth and the alcohol is quite hidden.

PorterPounder (7761) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Conyers, Ga. - Sigman Bottle Shop - 22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a light off-white head that sticks around a while. Aroma has some nice spicy hints with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Bold flavor with some boozy notes mixing along with the autumn spice flavors - cinnamon, nutmeg, you know the drill. Some pumpkin notes in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it. A little on the heavy side, but a good sipper.

22oz bottle. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spicy and malty flavor up front that is fantastic, but quickly turns a bit boozy and has a weird finish. Aside from the finish, very good beer.

blankboy (7571) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
My bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel. Pours a hazy orange-amber with a small semi-lasting frothy off-white head. A good amount of sediment in there. Aroma of pumpkin, spices and light alcohol. Slightly sweet flavour of pumpkin, spices and a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Not overly complex but very good nonetheless.

On tap at the 2009 Great Pumpkin Festival, Cambridge Brewing Company, Cambridge MA on 31 October 2009. Orange colour. Falls into the "not outrageously spiced but not enough else going on to maintain my interest" category of pumpkin ales. Which is to say, for me, acceptable but uninspiring. Aroma is spicy but relatively restrained. Less spice on the palate. Could use more hops. Sweetish. Did I say Im not a big fan of pumpkin ales?

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2011
One of the better pumpkin beers I have had in quite a while. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a medium sized orange-white head that left good lacing. The aroma was moderately strong sweet caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The flavor was strong sweet caramel, cinnamon sugar, nutmeg and clove. There was a lightly boozy undertone. The finish was long with cinnamon sugar, caramel and nutmeg lingering. Fairly full bodied. Well done.

22 ounce. Big pumpkin aroma and spice. Heavy carbonation. Given that it was probably bottled last October, its held up really well and the spices are all dominant.
