DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Bottle from Capone’s. Dark straw toward copper pour with nose of pumpkin puree, spice, and a slightly sweet, natural pumpkin flavor with spice and malt. Fairly rich palate and a good balance. This one is decent.

daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Yellow/orange pour. Small creamy white head. Aroma has a roasted pumpkin mixed with pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is overly spicy. Pumpkin takes a big backseat to the spices. Not bad, but just too much spice.

phaleslu (10893) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines. Pours mostly clear copper, slightly cloudy, with almost no head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, citrus, pumpkin. Flavor is a weaker version of that- somewhat watered down with a really light body. Thin mouthfeel, cinnamon/nutmeg finish. Could be better if the flavor matched the aroma.

onceblind (10861) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Clear coppery orange with a small white head. Aroma smells like nutmeg and some fake pumpkin purée, ginger and allspice. Tastes of pale sweet malts, pumpkin, allspice, ginger, nutmeg, and some overt sweetness. A little too much on the ginger and spices, but goes along well with thanksgiving’s dessert.

DuffMan (10751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Light amber. clear, average white head. Aroma and flavour deliver mild pumpkin with light caramel and light spice. Kind of a middling profile all around, slightly earthy. Okay.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Bottle @ home. Hazy, reddish orange appearance with a small off-white head. Rich, toasty pumpkin, vanilla, huge nutmeg, cinnamon aroma. Quite rich pumpkin, spicy cinnamon/nutmeg, light vanilla flavor. This is actually a re-rate on a 18 month old bottle and is still tasty.

blipp (9899) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. Sweet aroma with brown sugar, pumpkin, vanilla, and spices. The flavor has pumpkin, ginger, and spice. Nice.

arminjewell (9725) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is slightly hazy orange with nice bright white head, aroma has nice sweet notes of pumpkin, biscuit, and toffee, some nice hints of cinnamon and clove, touch of caramel as well in there. Taste is much heavier on the spice but has notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg for sure, hints of toffee and caramel, some sweet bread notes along with a touch of pumpkin, finishing slightly bitter, dry and spicy. I liked this!

2.9
bytemesis (9488) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy orange amber with minimal head and little lacing. Aroma is light spices, pumpkin, caramel. Flavor about the same. Light body, watery.
