09/20/13 trade from Jamil. A stellar pumpkin. Big pumpkin spice nutmeg scent with sweet cream touch. Beauty of a bronze pour. Medium body. Big pumpkin to spice flavor with a creamy mix on the nutmeg finish.

(bottle) Pours a semi-hazy orange color with a thin white head and a little bit of lacing. Aroma smells exactly like my Mom’s homemade pumpkin bread, so I’ve gotta give this a 10 for the sentimentality alone. Big spice aroma with a ton of cinnamon showing up over the rest of the spices. Good presence of pumpkin here too. Could be a little toastiness as well which is a nice addition. Flavor is full of sweet pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Again,the cinnamon really shows here, and it’s a very welcome flavor. Have to ding the finish just a bit, as the beer kind of thins out and doesn’t linger nearly as long as I’d expect it to. Overall this is unmistakably a pumpkin and spice forward beer, which is something I definitely look for within this often highly-variable style. Never thought I’d type this but, well done, Point. cards04 (2845) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
This is one epic pumpkin beer. It actually tastes like a piece of pumpkin pie. Crust and all. Buttery, spicy, and earthy pumpkin wrapped up in a bottle. One of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of huge pumpkin pie. The might be the most pumpkin pie smelling beer I’ve had...moderate spice with ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice mixed with light whip cream, graham cracker, and roasted pumpkin. There isn’t 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. It’s 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 I’ve had. Even with the strong cinnamon, it’s still very tasty. If you like pumpkin pie, you’ll be hard pressed to not like this beer. jerseyjohn71 (309) - Corsicana, Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2015

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 I’ve ever had. FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - 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. TonyDiUlio (664) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Had at capons. Pour was a clear amber with no head or lace. Aroma is full of pumpkin and mild hops. Flavor is much of the same. Good pumpkin though jmohno (1649) - Iowa, USA - JAN 11, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2012 Slightly hazy brownish orangish red looks like a true pumpkin.Nice spice aroma,refined and mellow pretty balanced pumpkin spice,nothing perfumey.Nutmeg vanilla caramel,malt,light cinnimon married very nicely for a very nice aroma-smells delicious.
Taste has a nice creamyness to it with malt carmel ,a mild toffee and a touch of roasted malt,a matched spiced pumpkin taste like aroma,toastyness,drinkability is really good not in a quaffible quenching way but just nothing offputting,this has been one of the better ones and definatly a pumpkin beer to have if you want a good one./The cinnamon and nutmeg do so more but nothing overpowering,very well spiced with a nice conditioned flavor.

Bottle. Pours deep amber/Orange with off-white head. Aroma has everything a pumpkin pie has...pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and even doughy crust. Flavor is much the same but add some malty sweetness and it is perfected!! You can even taste the crust in this beauty! Mouthfeel is medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall, I love everything about this brew, the maltiness, the flavors, the balance....EXCELLENT brew!!!
