Nicely pumpkiny and spicy, finishes with a very straightforward light beery flavor. Sweet flavors, initially sweet taste, finishes drier. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves. Pleasant mouthfeel - thick. I don’t really know pumpkin ales, and they wouldn’t be my go to beer, but this one is very pleasant.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2010 Pours a dark amber. Stong pumpkin pie aroma. Taste was liquid pumpkin pie w/ a kick. Lots of cinamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, cloves, vanilla; some alcohol taste. This was the fullest bodied pumpkin beer I’ve ever had and definitely the best one I’ve had. Didn’t taste as artificial as others. Has a relatively high ABV. Best pumpkin ale I’ve had.

Thin off-white head of fine bubbles. Spices and pumpkin with some sweet malts and a bit of butterscotch. Color is a dark copper brown. Flavor is mild spice and pumpkin. Some gingerbread and toasted grains. Slightly gritty mouthfeel. Noticable but light alcohol presence. Finishes spicy and dry. A pretty decent pumpkin brew.

Copper colored liquid with a tallish beige head. No doubt this is a pumpkin pie spice brew from the first sniff. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger all seem to prevail in the nose. I’m looking for either a little crust or malt, but I’m not finding much. Still a nice spicy aroma. This is a bit rough when cooler, and slightly mellows as it warms. Initial cinnamon bite, followed by a little bit of toasted malt. Reminds me of the slightly burnt edge of crust. Quite thick and nearly mouthcoating. This is more a sipper than one to quaff. The finish and linger have a burnt edge that continues from the prior thoughts. Slightly warming. I like it, in a small dose dessert kind of way.

Pours a nice orangish-brown with small head. Intense aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg. Flavors are pumpkin spice with roasted grain and bitter hop finish. Just a bit too sweet to be entirely successful and a bit thin in the palate. Worth a try.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Sampled at the 2009 Great Nebraska Beer Festival. Pours dark amber with a huge spiced aroma of pumpkin pie spices. The flavor has big pumpkin pie spices as well but the beer is slightly chemical at the finish. It seems schizophrenic. Not something I would ever drink again.

CanIHave4Beers (4224) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Pours a reddish orange with a small tight head. The aroma is spicy with some pumpkin pie and fruit, fairly nice all around. The flavor is more pumpkin pie spice with a fair bit of booze but a rich maltiness that never really seems terribly sweet. It’s pretty tasty beer, but I think it would be a lot better at a lower gravity.

BeerHawk (1811) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle. Poured a slight hazed brown with an off-white head that settled to a ring. Sweet aroma of brown sugar and light spice and pumpkin. The flavor found pumpkin and caramel. Light to medium body, sweet throughout, and a caramel aftertaste.

3.3
DocLock (11025) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Bottle from Capone’s. Copper pour with half a finger of head. Nose is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, with the same in the flavor, some caramel malt, and a medium palate. Not as bold, complex, or unique as some other pumpkin offerings, but not bad at all.

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2011
On tap at Capone’s. Poured an amberish color with a smaller sized head. Yep, a pumpkin beer - pumpkin with spices. This one tilted more towards pumpkins vs. spices which is what I like.
