A - Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a big finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of brown sugar and pumpkin pie spices with nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves, with some caramel and bready malts and some pumpkin.
T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malts with some pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices including some nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Through the middle, some brown sugar comes through with some more spices and pumpkin flavor. The finish is a mix of spices, bready malts, pumpkin, and some spices.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with spicy and slightly sweet finish.
D - Very drinkable. Really nice pumpkin and with a good balance of pumpkin flavor and spices. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2010
2007: Light orange triaminic color. Dishsoap head. Hazy. Not much lace.
Spicy and with a nice (ok obviously) pumpkin scent. Very nice and quite rich. Has a cake-like sugary sweetness.
The spicy pumpkin pie flavor is really delicious. Has a very spicy aftertaste. A bit out of season, but warm and fuzzy nonetheless.
Milky and thick. Leaves a nice spicy film. A tad dry in the finish. Spicy and tastes good. Perfect for a chilly autumn night. BigBeer45 (1532) - Michigan, USA - OCT 25, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 12 oz. bottle, poured a light brown amber color with some red, this pumpkin ale looked more red then the other pumpkin ales I have had, some bubbles that stayed around a bit, that spices jump out compared to the other pumpkin ales, a bite on the tongue in the after taste, I do not know if it is the hops or the spices, this smells like a piece of pumpkin pie in your glass, the spices overwhelm the pumpkin, I had to search for the pumpkin in this one, pumpkin is hardly there in the brew, this ale left some lacing on the glass, there is a bit of bitterness on the palate after swallowing, little dry on the palate, not as thirst quenching as some other pumpkin ales but I liked the kick in the nose with the spices, just wished the pumpkin came through more. tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Bottle. Hugely spicy aroma. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Pours copper with some amber highlights. Flavor is spicy initially, loses a bit in the middle, then kicks you in the ass with some massive spice on the finish. Medium bodied. Damn... this one’s gonna give me heartburn. daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2003
Bright orange color. Interesting nose, reminded me of barbecue sauce although I’m sure it must have had the same spices as the bbq sauce I’m used to. Hints of nutmeg and I think ginger in there as well. The body is clean and spicey, again the nutmeg and ginger. Can’t say I noticed any pumpkin tastes, but there were some candyish hop notes. Maybe they were getting more as the halloween theme. Defenitely a little less spiced than some other pumpkin ales I’ve had, which is a good thing.

Pours a clear dark yellow orange color with slight foamy white head. Aroma is lots of spice and pumpkin. Flavor is a bit doughy with nice sweet base and good amount of spice without being overpowering. Out of the many pumpkin beers I’ve had this one reminds me more of a pie than most. Good beer.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, gingerbread, nuts and brown sugar. Hazy medium orange hue with an average white foamy head that mostly diminished and left ok lace. Flavor is medium-heavy sweet. Palate is medium to full bodied and oily soft. Overall a nice pumpkin ale that is enjoyable and balanced. demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Pours an amberish orange with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Scent is the aroma of a pumpkin pie. Taste is definite pumpkin, cinnamon, and other spices indicative of a thanksgiving pumpkin pie. Aftertaste is short lived yet spicy and rather sweet. This is an enjoyable pumpkin pie in your glass kind of beer. Very nice spice beer that is good for both the fall and winter JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle from fear025. Spice and cream aroma. Taste is subtle spice and vanilla with nilla wafers.
