Bulk_Carrier (5924) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - MAY 15, 2017
Reviewed from "fresh" notes. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a dark amber color with a slight transparency about it. Some carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. The foamy white head swiftly dissipated to leave no lace. The aroma had some pumpkin puree type of sweetness, some cinnamon, pie spice, allspice and ginger and a decent caramel/toffee malt base. Also noted some nuts, and a little bit of biscuit/sweet cookie/dark breadiness. The flavor was moderately sweet with the spices somewhat there. Aftertaste was fully blended between the malts and spices. Finish was quick with a sly maltiness. The palate was just under medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed good and wanted to balance with the spices. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, now thats a fairly nice pumpkin ale. Too bad these guys dont send to Vermont, guess I need to spend more time with my parents during the Autumn to get more of this.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Aroma - that creamy pumpkin puree is present, all the associated spices (nutmeg, clove, allspice, and cinnamon). Appearance - the body is clean mahogany, with a 1/3" white head. Taste - has a mix of pumpkin and the associated baking spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and allspice. Well orchestrated - nice balance. Palate - medium body, velvety texture, average carbonation, and a warm spiced finish.

cheap (5740) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Tap, industry public house. Smell is somewhat spicy. Reminds me of pumpkin pie nose to some extent. Pale in color. No head. Oh my, lots of spice on the first taste. Perhaps over the top in some respects. Flat presentation. Not sure if there is pumpky in there or not but the spices are sure there.

Aroma is pretty unremarkable. Taste is a bit of sweet pumpkin, but not enough spice. Overall an OK pumpkin ale.

cwill (83) - Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Dark copper orange pour with a minimal head that dissipates fast. Aromas of spicy, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin. Tastes of pumpkin along with some sweet caramel. A strong malt comes through first making this almost like an Oktoberfest beer, but its followed by pumpkin pie spices. The spice dominates and finishes dry. A hint of some alcohol burn 7.5%. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy. Pumking it is not, but still very good

Brigadier (3650) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2015
On tap at PHL
The deScription caught my attention but the resulting beer kept me hooked. Instead of feeling like a consolation prize for other drafts which recently kicked this fine release takes the pumpkin seasonal and makes it something unique.

Aroma / Appearance - A fluid cherry base brightens the table as the mahogany core casts light in all directions. Pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream and nutmeg sprinkles gives this a distinctively autumnal feel. Almost like Thanksgiving dessert in a glass it smells like the dessert table at family dinner.

Flavor / Palate - Nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices tickle the tongue. The immediate earthy transition remains grounded as it washes a wave of pumpkin cream across the palate. The refreshing finish feels ideal - not too chewy but with enough presence to make a mark. If this comes around in future years give it a shot if you like the proliferation of spicy pumpkin beers.

Pours clear amber with aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and some pumpkin. Full-favored with just enough spice-cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, with some pumpkin and vanilla sweetness. Good beer.

Bottle. Tastes like pumpkin pie, dry spice, nice roasted pumpkin, and caramel malt, but not too sweet. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like pumpkin pie spices, roasted pumpkin, caramel, and bready malt.
