Pours a transparent orange amber with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, some toasty nutty notes and good cinnamon and nutmeg spice with a healthy dose of pumpkin. Starts with good fullness and nice malty sweetness and spice balance to accompany the pumpkin flavor. Finishes drier and bittersweet with some lingering allspice. A pretty good pumpkin ale.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7073) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright caramel-amber color with a huge creamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was semi sweet with strong nutmeg and moderate cinnamon and toasted caramel. The flavor was sweet caramel, apple, strong cinnamon and nutmeg and a fairly strong pumpkin element. The finish was medium length tangy caramel and spice. Fairly full bodied. Really tasted quite a bit like a pumpkin pie. Excellent.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle:   Deep amber, moderate foamy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Nutmeg and allspice on the nose, slight cinnamon and general pumpkin pie filling.   Soft pumpkin pie on the tongue, smidgen of crust and whipped cream.   Seems to be better than most in thats it has a good amount of flavor.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Spicy finish, good malt background, very enjoyable.   Simple, good flavor profile, and very refreshing.   Wishing it were Autumn right now.   Thanks Bob for the bottle!

Pailhead (6496) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of huge pumpkin pie. The might be the most pumpkin pie smelling beer Ive had...moderate spice with ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice mixed with light whip cream, graham cracker, and roasted pumpkin. There isnt any lacing. It pours a hazy reddish-orange with a one finger beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of brown sugar that is followed up in the middle by light roasted pumpkin. The finish has moderate-heavy cinnamon, light-moderate nutmeg, ginger, allspice, graham cracker, and a touch of whip cream. Its medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, the aroma is out of this world. For my preferences, the flavor is too heavy on the cinnamon in the finish. Tone the cinnamon down and this is probably one of the best pumpkin beers Ive had. Even with the strong cinnamon, its still very tasty. If you like pumpkin pie, youll be hard pressed to not like this beer.

This one poured a darker orange with an off white head. Aroma of cinnamon l, nutmeg, toast and caramel. Decent pumpkin pie flavors, but then drops off in the finish.

Dark orange-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some nice cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin notes. The flavor is a mix of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice pumpkin ale.

Geez, where to start? This is everything I love and hate about pumpkin beers. It smells awesome - cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin - everything is good so far. Flavor is the same, but so heavy and cloying that its almost undrinkable.

(12oz bottle) fairly cloudy deep copper, fine tan edge bubbles. Nose of real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, almost like a pumpkin cookie. Taste of pumpkin mash, fruity yeast esters, cinnamon, nutmeg, touch of clove. An excellent pumpkin beer.
