chinchill (5318) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 11, 2015
12 oz bottle wth a BB Nov. 2014(?) date notch; so just purchased but perhaps a little past BB window.
Pours lightly hazy, orange-amber in color, with a decent semi-durable head that leaves some spotty lacing.
Aroma: suggest a nice mix of spices and light+medium malts.
Flavor: more spices here; a bit more than ideal in that the malts are mostly masked and the aftertaste emphasizes the spices.
Feel: medium-light body and medium carbonation.

Bottle. Bottled on: 08/11/14 (I think). Pours a pretty dark orange with tons of chunky floaties and a beige head. Nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, caramel, vanilla, and hints of ginger dominate the pumpkin pie-like aroma. Goes down relatively thin to medium-bodied. Caramel and a touch of honey upfront in the taste. Vanilla in the middle. Crisp and kinda grainy at the tail-end with plenty of the aforementioned spices. Another enjoyable pumpkin brew.

This has a really great dark orange color but no suds. This is a very comforting beer with a strong but not overwhelming pumpkin flavor and spice. Nice weight in the palate and gentle carbonation.

Bottle. Pours orange amber with a thin frothy off-white head. Aroma of light pumpkin spices. Flavor of nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, a bit of caramel and some notes of ginger. Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2014
From the bottle, pours a clear reddish orange with virtually no head, just some bubbles that quickly dissipate. Smells like a pumpkin beer should, cloves and allspice, but also a little thin. The taste concurs, thin like a pilsner, but clean and drinkable. Notes of pumpkin pie, cloves, allspice. Not bad, but not my favorite pumpkin.

12oz bottle - brought by friend. Poured a orange-copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma was pumpkin pie notes, okay pumpkin notes, light maple sweetness. Flavor had nutmeg and cinnamon notes. Light pumpkin. Decent. Spab (4081) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
12 oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a nearly clear golden orange with average-sized white head. Aroma is decent pumpkin, nice pumpkin pie spices and caramelly malt. Flavour is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel and honeyed grains. Carbonation a little livelier than average. Pleasant.
