On draft at Coles, Buffalo. Dark orange with a small white head. Aroma: Wow, big pumpkin spice aroma, simply marvellous. Flavour: Big pumpkin flavour, cinnamon, spice, I can just imagine enjoying this with a nice slice of pumpkin pie. Very enjoyable.

Draught. At Cole’s, Buffalo NY. Hazy amber with an average diminishing off-white head. a GREAT aroma of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, cream and graham crackers - so moreish. Tastes similar, not quite as mouthwatering; Cool Whip ("why are you sounding the "H"?!!!) instead of whipped cream, so dry herbal bitterness. Light bodied, decent carbonation, mild alcohol, a hint of spice-astringency; it finishes quick, but leaves a pleasant spicy/biscuity linger - a solid pumpkin beer, and disturbingly easy to drink. johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle. Light amber color with an average off white head. Nice pumpkin pie aroma, with vanilla, nutmeg and cinammon also present. Heavy baking spice flavors. The pumpkin comes through nicely in the finish. More of a semi-creamy texture with soft carbonation. Well worth a try. Boutip (6385) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2012
Bottle: Poured an orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of cinnamon and cloves is quite strong with light pumpkin notes. Taste is also a nice mix between some strong notes of cinnamon and cloves with light pumpkin and some semi-sweet caramelized malt. Body is average with good carbonation. Well brewed with just about right amount of spices. rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2013
bottle. november 2011. orange with small head. really nice fall spice. not overdone, perfect amount. if all the MBC beers were this good, they’d still be in business. sadly, only this and the IPA were any good.

Pours a clear copper color with little head. Aroma and flavor chock full of spices. Ginger is dominant but also getting some nutmeg and cinnamon. Almost no pumpkin flavor though. I kind of like this beer. Will agree with Pailhead there is a certain sourness detectable. Still enjoyed it nonetheless. DrewTaylor (154) - Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Poured deep bright amber, slightly red. Very strong sweet pumpkin spice aroma. Taste is sweet like pumpkin pie. Full array of spices. Strong very sweet pumpkin ale, SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle. Medium-bubbly white head. Aroma of spices. Color is orangish. Flavor starts of slow in front, nice malty tones, then your hit with HUGE pumpkin flavors. Spices, cinnamon, nutmeg. My first thought was pumpkin cake with whipped cream. Aftertaste was nicely meshed together, it was a perfect end to a nice fall friday evening kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 23, 2007
12oz bottle, courtesy of pjweaver (my bro). Thanks, Phil! Pours a clear, bold orange-amber color; fluffy white head with good retention and lacing. Very generous, soft spicing in the aroma; mostly nutmeg with some cinnamon and toasty vanilla. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: pleasant amber ale underneath everything (clear; light carbonation), surrounded by warming nutmeg and cinnamon; none of the typical spice harshness, just toasty and warm spicing. Medium, candy sugar and nutmeg in the finish; a bit dry. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - 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.
