Poured copper-gold with decent head. Aromatics of sweet pumpkin pie spices. Great flavor! A nice surprise with Thanksgiving this year. An interesting discovery - 2012 GABF winner.

This is one of the best pumpkin beers Ive ever had. The pumpkin flavor is at the forefront and it has such a nice sweetness to it. It almost tastes like its a mix of pumpkin and maple syrup, and its fantastic.

Hazy orange with small head that hangs on for a little while. Smells of spices and freshly baked pumpkins, oh man the aroma is so good, just like pumpkin pie. The aroma was just a preview because this tastes just like pumpkin pie. Fairly thick and creamy, by far one of the best pumpkin ales I have ever tried. Had this one last year and loved it then too. Not sure why I didnt get it on Ratebeer but got it on here now. This beer would be well stocked in my fridge if it wasnt for that price tag. It is a bit more expensive and comes in a four pack. So guess this will be a four pack each year and nothing more and for that reason overall the cost lost points with me. Still a VERY good brew!

Relatively few spice-infused pumpkin ales deliver on the promise of tasting like pumpkin pie in beer form. This is one of those.

12 oz bottle. Nose of straight pumpkin pie. Poured a murky amber brown with a beige head. Taste of pumpkin, sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Well carbonated, full bodied. Wow, this was a pleasant surprise. Arguably the best pumpkin ale Ive ever had.

Sample from bottle at Hy-Vee Oktoberfest. Poured amber, white head. Aroma was pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste was sweet, pumpkin pie.

[Bottle] Pours cloudy brownish-amber with no head. Aroma is very spice heavy and one dimensional. Im not saying it is bad, but I could swear Im holding a cold cider with mulling spices in it based solely on smell. Taste is also pretty one dimensional, but again not bad. I dont get much pumpkin at all. Decent mouthfeel, finish length is fairly long. Overall, I like pumpkin beers, but is one is just middle of the pack at best and overly reliant on spices.

Liquid pumpkin pie -- nothing else comes to mind. A 3-oz sample of this tonight was just perfect.

Pours a light brown with limited head. Not much co2. Aroma and taste of pumpkin pie. Spice note stronger in this one. A bit too much for me its kinda like drinking a fall candle. If you like that liquid pie style fall beer this is for you.

ESPh (132) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2016
Pours a dark brown/caramel color. Not much head. Nice aroma of pumpkin, spices. Medium body and carbonation. The spice flavor is a little too prominent in the taste, but overall this is a decent pumpkin beer.

Seriously good for a pumpkin ale. Tastes like a great pumpkin pie - enough sweet that you know its a dessert, but enough spice to keep it from being cloying. Great mouthfeel from the pumpkin as well, making it feel full and lush. All three flavors play together well - the spice, the sweet, the pumpkin - in the nose, the flavor and palate, and the lingering finish. Easily one of the best pumpkin ales Ive had, and Ive had my share.
