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 LinusStick (3509) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2007
The aroma of this beer is the best of any of the pumpkins hands down. Strong alcohol and spices that would be the equivelant of snorting a line of pumpkin pie mix. Pour was a clear medium brown with a 1 finger white head. Taste was not too strong. Heavy carbonation drowned out any taste, but the heavy pumpkin aroma floats up through the nostrils. Nice.

Bottle. Body is an autumnal mix of orange and brown and supports a medium sized tan head. Aromas are pie spices and pumpkin (maybe a bit of dishsoap, too). Flavor starts off a little malty and then heads into a very spicy finish. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg mingle with the pumpkin flavoring and create a fairly nice aftertaste. Every now and then it seems a little watery and every now and then there is a little bit of a soapy aftertaste... apart from these two minor snags it is an interesting and well done pumpkin beer. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle: Amber, a bit on the darker side, moderate foamy off-white head, decent lacing.   Big cinnamon and nutmeg nose.   For
some reason it reminds me of egg-nog a bit.   Perhaps its heavy on the nutmeg?   I do believe it is.   Flavor is like nut-meg
beer for me.   Weird, most beers I think of as Pumpkin beers, but this just reminds me of Egg-Nog beer.   I love Egg-Nog, so its no
surprise I do find this tasty.   Not as sweet as others, but remains fairly spicy from start to finish.   Body and mouthfeel are
moderate, nearly full.   Finish does have a slight astringent bite to it, very very subtle tho.   Nutmeg lingers for quite a while.
Decent, even if it reminds me almost more of Christmas than the Autumn season.   Thanks Chris for yet another good brew! pjweaver (136) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Great aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie. Just all around a great smelling beer. Pours a dark nutmeg color, with a slightly offwhite thick head. Flavors predominantly of cinnamon, nutmeg, little pumpkin, lots of spice. Great autumn flavors. Lingering spice on the palate, gets kind of a tangy aftertaste though.
Great beer at a great price for the fall, I suggest picking it up if you haven’t for next year.

12oz bottle. Pours a medium orange amber with a thin white ring. Big nose of pumpkin spice, nutmeg and clove. Flavor was of toasted malt and spice, one of the better pumpkin brews I’ve had. unclemike (3163) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - FEB 1, 2009

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Amber in color with small off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie all the way, with nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. Taste is sweet malt, spices, and pumpkin. Medium mouthfeel, quite smooth. Pretty good! RoscoeJackson (377) - Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 if you’re looking for a pumpkin beer, this is the one. the best thing is about this beer is the pumpkin pie aroma. i’ve tried a few pumpkin beers and this is the only one i’ll buy.
UPDATE 1 YEAR LATER: pumpkin smell is nice. lots of spice. the beer itself is pretty boring. to me, it gets novelty points for just smelling so pumpkin-y bth122 (1641) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Poured a golden color. Aroma is exploding with flavor, especially cinnamon and nutmeg; If you like those spices you will like this beer. Taste is easy drinking, light body. Little fizzy. Sweet. Like eating pumpkin pie. I just had the Dogfish punkin right before this one and they compare pretty close. This one has a better aroma, but the DF has a slight better taste.
