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.

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.

A decent pumpkin ale falls short of the pumking by Southern Tier IMO. A good pumkin palate will leave you satisfied.

Pours a clear orange/amber with a medium light tan head. Aroma has nice doughy notes, notable pumpkin, and just the right amount of spice. Flavor follows suit but adds caramel, a bit more spice, and a hint of booziness. Mouthfeel is oily with a boozy spiced finish that warms.

Cybercat (5834) - Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Malty aroma has a firm overtone of pumpkin and cinnamon - very October indeed. It pours a slightly hazy coppery amber with a thin pale pumpkin-orange head, but the condition of the head may be an artifact of the pour. Lip-smacking malty flavor has firm tones of pumpkin and cinnamon with hints of cloves and fruit and a bit of an alcohol nip. Texture has above average body and is smooth with a subtle fizz, leaving an edgy, malty, pumpkin finish. Perfect for this time of year!

Bottle. Pours a murky orange color with a light off-white head. Radiating smell of pumpkin. Hops balance out the sweet pumpkin flavor. A little heavy on the spices. Alcohol definitely warms the throat. Has a slight bitter finish with all the kick of the fall spices.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - OCT 13, 2012
A nice orange amber body with a white head that had great retention and some lace. Aroma had a good caramel malt base upfront. Notes from pumpkin and spices followed with nutmeg really sticking out the most a slight sweetness and some alcohol. Flavor had a little more sweetness the I expected. It wasn’t overly sweet in any way. A nice spice note with the nutmeg being dominate pumpkin was a nice bitter sweet accompaniment to the spice.

On tap at Alewife in Baltimore. Pours an amber gold. Thin white head. No lacing. Aroma is pumpkin and cinnamon. Placer is all pumpkin spice. Pretty good pumpkin ale.

"this one was intriguing...an imperial pumpkin. maybe it would have the body and backbone sorely lacking from too many of the pumpkin ales out there. it smelled similar, but stronger, the abv making it’s presence known. the flavor also had a creamy aspect to it...like pumpkin pie a la mode...i imagine similar to Pumking based on it’s rep. It was quite good, and lingered, with a big body and creamy feel to back it up. good stuff."
