Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bottled. Poured medium coppery-brown with a one-finger, dense cap of beige head.. rising carbonation. The aroma picked up slightly sour caramel and nutty notes with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg around.. not a whole lot of pumpkin meat to note, but not bad. The flavor found caramel and some pumpkin meat at the core.. nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves around.. spicy and warm on the back-end. Medium-bodied and crisp on the palate.. quite dry on the back-end.. felt good and tasted good.. wish I had more.

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.

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!

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 Aroma is pie crust, spices/cinnamon, slight mustiness and a hint of pumpkin. The flavor is spices/cinnamon, bread/pie crust, a hint of fruit and a tart finish.

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.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of huge pumpkin pie. The might be the most pumpkin pie smelling beer Iíve had...moderate spice with ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice mixed with light whip cream, graham cracker, and roasted pumpkin. There isnít 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. Itís 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 Iíve had. Even with the strong cinnamon, itís still very tasty. If you like pumpkin pie, youíll be hard pressed to not like this beer.

ben4321 (6422) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/3/13

Aroma: The nose is full of autumn spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.), with malts and hops
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark-orange color, with an off-white head, and some spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is loaded with the spices described in the nose, thereís beer and hops here too
Palate: The body is medium, it has a nice mouthfeel, spice, and a lengthy finish
Overall Impression: This is actually a really nice autumn beer. Itís really more of a cinnamon/nutmeg beer than a pumpkin beer, but it is tasty none-the-less. I really enjoyed it quite a bit. Great fall beer.

Bottle pour. The beer is a clear colper color with a white head of foam. The aroma has nice pumpkin pie and a pleasant sweetness to it. The spices seem to be well covered up. Bigger body and medium carbonation.

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 itís almost undrinkable.
