Bottle. Pours clear reddish hazel, small beige head, decent lacing. Aroma is pumpkin spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Flavor is light plus sweet, very spiced, quite bitter as well. Lightish body. Harsh bitterness. nuplastikk (6633) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2015
22oz bomber. Filtered ruby-red/brown body. Thin, glass lacing beige head. Full bodied, rich pumpkin beer. Pretty much nails it for the style, big without being Imperial or overwhelming. Really tasty malt notes. The spice is there, but nothing overboard, more of a balancing agent. I don’t get a ton of pumpkin, but I’d guess that is what smooths out the body. Solid offering. maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - SEP 16, 2014

: Not a big fan of pumpkin beer. This one appears to be a pale ale as a base beer, with fresh pumpkin puree (is that an oxymoron?) added to a very nice balance. Overall, still not a fan of pumpkin beer.
On draught at Slice Parlor - Albuquerque. Bounds a clear dark amber with slight head. Intense nufmeg aroma. Medium body, underlying hop bitterness, slightly sweet rich maltiness. Pronounced spicdst, seemingly nutmeg, dominate any pumpkin character.

Growler pours with a clear amber body with copper hues and supporting a thin tan head of foam. The aroma is nice and pumpkin like along with malt sweetness and cinnamon graham cracker. The taste delivers thick sweet malts moving into pumpkin and some semi bright winter spiciness. Darn nice brew.

Amber/orange pour. White head. Great pumpkin
aroma with a great balance of spices. Think and creamy with lots if balanced pumpkin and spice flavors. smaynard6000 (1275) - Apopka, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2012
on tap at the brewery. Clear amber in colore with average-sized off-white head. Good lacing throughout. Aroma is completely dominated by pumpkin and spices. Medium bodied with creamy mouthfeel. Moderately sweet. I’m not the world’s biggest pumpkin fan, but this is perfect for the autumn months. ketchepillar (1210) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Ruby red. Aroma: clove, cinnamon, and some rum raisin. Flavor: quite a bit of clove. I’m not particularly in tune with pumpkin flavors, but there is some. More on the spice end for sure. Pretty bitter finish, a bit too much-Accentuates the vegetalness more than I’d like. Some caramel malts in the finish. Oakes (19549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2011
Amber-brown. The aroma is full of pumpkin, caramel and pie spice (esp. nutmeg). Assertively spiced, and this is balanced by lots of caramelly malts. Bold, tasty pumpkin ale. 3fourths (9377) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 creamy pumpkin pie nose, soft, earthy, doughy, rock solid tight carbonation to match the acid and body. medium-light pulp and high pumpkin spice / allspice / nutmeg leaves mouth tingling and peppery, bit over done here but the balance / body outweighs an excessive flavor or two.
