Bottle. Poured clear orange copper color with a large off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy doughy pumpkin pie aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium balanced spicy flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. Good seasonal beer.

Bottle. Strong pumpkin, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon aroma. Clear amber color with minimal head. Sweet nutmeg, cinnamon, and light pumpkin flavor. Light palate. Smelled great but flavor disappoints. jercraigs (10858) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
2008-12-05. Orange amber body with a modest off-white head. (3+) Pleasant aroma of spice, cinnamon mostly, nutmeg? (8+) Sweet flavour, spice with a solid sweet malt base. Spice is a bit dominating, but tasty. Cinnamon, sweet malt, very light kiss of caramel undertones, melange of spices. Cinnamon is dominant. (8+) Average plus palate. (3+) Could be a bit much in quantity but the rich malt base is like what I remember from last years Pumking. Rather good. Criminally under rated if its always as good as this pint was! But then perhaps it just caught me at the right time. /<i>On tap at Coles, Buffalo</i> tderoeck (10195) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2012

Little cloudy deep orange beer, big irregular creamy head, adhesive, pretty stable. Aroma: lots of cloves, cinnamon, some ginger, more cloves, bit sugary, although that last could be my mind playing tricks on me with all of these pastry aromas. MF: soft carbon, light to medium body. Taste: lots of spices, mainly cinnamon and cloves, orange peel, gingerbread. Aftertaste: bitter, lots of spices, more cloves and cinnamon, bitter, little metallic, green banana.
[1879-20081205] Cask. Sweet pumpkin whipped cream pie aroma. Clear, orange red body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Sweet whipped cream and spicy pumpkin pie slice flavour has some evergreen spearmint hints. Medium body. Fresh and spicy.

Bottle. Pours red with an off white head. The aroma is pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor has pie crust, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Very impressive. FROTHINGSLOSH (8139) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was strong nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor was bitter nutmeg and cinnamon and had a light dry malty undertone and a hint of hut. The finish was long and spicy. Nicely done. blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2009
<i>Draught at Coles, Buffalo, NY.</i> Pours a clear deep orange with a spare diminishing white head. Lovely aroma of pumpkin, spices and even some eggnog. Flavour: Wow, I love it! Pumpkin and spices and with a light bitter finish. Good body for the style. Quite possibly the best beer I’ve had from Michigan Brewing, this is damn good stuff.

Thanks Floyd. A clear caramel beer with a smallish tan head. A nice aroma with pumpkin that is just some Cool Whip away from pumpkin pie including the spices. Feel is quite zesty and gives a nice zing to the tip of the tongue. Flavor is exactly the same as the aroma. One of the best beers in this genre that I have had.
