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.

Tap at Capones. Pours a hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly creamy head that laced. Aroma of a nice mix of pumpkin pie spices, pumpkin, toasted malt and some grains. Flavor had a lot of cinnamon, nutmeg, lots of pie spices, pie crust and nuts.

Cask at Blind Tiger. Amber pour with no head. The nose is fairly spicy. A bit of light herbal character. There is a bit of herbal hoppiness initially with a soft fruity character as well. A touch of ginger and allspice with some clove and cinnamon. A very nice spicy note with a soft herbal pumpkiny character with the light hoppy spiciness on the back. Very lovely pint.

Bottle picked up at stateline. Pours a nice orang-ish/red color, good head. Good nose of classic pumpkin and spices. Taste is a nice pumpkin brew... spices, pumpking, light nutmeg, and perfume notes. Medium carbonated body. Overall nice beer, that I would buy again.

Clear golden amber, no head, slightly viscous... A little hot aroma, gingerbread man distinctly.. Spicy, decent pumpkin flavor, lots of pumpkin, more than in most.. Medium full bodied, mild sweetness plays very well, excellent fall dessert beer...

shared bomber. pours a light orange with a 1 finger off white head. aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and light pumpkin. smells like a wonderful desert. medium body with a general sweetness throughout. lots of spice. more cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. there isn’t too much pumpkin which makes this very enjoyable for me. really nice level of spice and overall sweetness. sweet malt finish with some spices to finish it off. the cinnamon makes this very enjoyable. didn’t pick up on the 8% too much... could drink a lot of this.... great pumpkin ale.

Bottle. Poured a medium amber-orange with a large white creamy head that was mostly diminishing and had good lacing. The aroma hits you right of the bat with the scent of cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and pumpkin with notes of a cookie malt and a sweet doughy yeast. It tastes mildly sweet with strong notes of nutmeg and cinnamon right off, then became more of an almost Pumpkin pie flavor with a mild alcohol tinge near the end. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and creamy in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall one of the best pumpkin ale’s I have tasted to date.

The brew on tap pours light, clean orange amber in color. The aroma is subtle, some spice and subtle pumpkin notes. There is a nice pumpkin flavor with soft spice notes on top of a smooth, but lighter body.

Quite a bit of sediment poured out in this beer. Very little head and no lacing. Otherwise nicely clear beer. Very subtle aroma of pumpkin pie spices. Rich creamy mouthfeel, awesomely full bodied. The expected spice flavor is accompanied by vanilla and a bunch of alcohol. Aside from the strength of this beer it is easy drinking for this style of beer. Not over the edge rich like some that wear out your taste buds.

Panzuriel (2429) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Pours mildly hazy deep amber hazy liquid out of a 22 oz bomber bottle. Head is a small and disappearing quickly wreath of fine white bubbles. Nose is sweet pumpkin spice. Nutmeg and cinnamon. Mellow pumpkin aroma underneath as well. Body is on the thinner side of average with little texture. Taste is mellow pumpkin over a nice malty ale. Spice notes present but are not overpowering. Alcohol hit on the back end. A very nice beer.
