Translucent light gold color with zero head and no lacing. I don’t rate many appearances below 3, but this was just not impressive in any way. Light fruity aroma. It smells a little like Big League Chew, which is awesome. Flavor is good with a balanced mix of spices and pumpkin. Very good overall, but much too expensive. thegreenrooster (4518) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Pour is a bright orange with a average white head. Aroma is cinnamon and a nice pumikin spice. Flavor is again lots of pumpkin and spice with even a little hop toward the end. This is a steller pumpkin beer and just a notch below my favorite Schlafy pumpkin. TheBeerGod (6254) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle. Orange amber with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma is strong cinnamon with light ginger and clove. Pumpkin pie aroma is rather pronounced and is also rather sweet. Taste is big spice (mainly allspice), cinnamon, light clove, sweet malt, candy notes and pumpkin pie. Body is medium with bubbly carbonation and light stickiness. Finishes with more cinnamon, pumpkin pie, clove, light ginger, sweet malt, candy and nutmeg. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle pours an amber brew with a tiny tan head. Scent is a floral shop, pumpkin, and lots of spices. Taste is pumpkin and nutmeg. Tiny bit of burn. Not a fan of the style but this is enjoyable. unclemattie (4357) - Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours light brown \ orange color. Aroma of pumpkin pie and pie spice. Loads of nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Tastes of alcohol and pumpkin pie. Nice flaky crust finish. Buttery texture, nice dough, fresh cooked squash, and plenty of spice. Lightly carbonated, tiny bubbles. Perfect for the Autumn season. One of the better Pumpkin Ales out there. Very worth trying.

Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a medium sized foamy tan head. The aroma was strong sweet cinnamon, sugar and clove with a hint of nutmeg. The flavor was incredibly spicy and dry with strong notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove and a moderate undertone of caramel and brown sugar. The finish was very long and exceptionally spicy. Fairly full bodied and smooth. The alcohol was well hidden. Too dominated by the spice but interesting. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2010
22 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange gold with a thin fizzy head that completely vaporizes immediately and leaves no lace. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin and cinnamon. I see there are other spices according to the label, but I am just getting cinnamon in the nose. The flavor is pumpkin and cinnamon (again I am not getting any of the other spices) along with a bit of malt and Juicy Fruit gum. Fairly smooth on the palate. Alcohol is well hidden. This is a good pumpkin ale but a step below the group on the top tier. bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2010
22 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear orange/amber color with a half inch fizzy off-white head that went away pretty quickly. Not much lacing at all. Aroma is very strong and spicy, mostly like cinnamon and cloves but with some nutmeg, ginger and pumpkin noticable too. I can taste all the spices and pumpkin, but for whatever reason the taste doesn’t live up to what this brew smells like. It’s a lot weaker tasting than I thought it would be, at least compared to the aroma anyway. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with low carbonation. Drinkability is OK enough. It’s a decent pumpkin ale, but not one of my favorites. I think it’s worth trying, I wouldn’t turn one down. baraciisch (3349) - California, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Color is red orange... Aroma is cinnamon spice... Flavor is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and spice... Decent pumpkin beer LinusStick (3498) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2010
A decent pumpkin beer. A little ordinary in some regards, but very drinkable. Aroma was nice and sweet, though a little subdued. Nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin with a sweet caramel backbone. Pour was a thick sticky light brown with slow moving bubbles and a thin off white film for a head. Taste was good. Nutmeg, brown sugar, cinnamon and pumpkin in the front with a sweet malty sticky aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Nice beer.
