WOW! I was expecting the usual mild flavored boring pumpkin beer when I popped this open, but was I surprised! Aroma was very weak and I figured I was right. Pour was a nice light brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was stunning. Heavy pumpkin pie spices fill the mouth with cinnamon and nutmeg taking center stage. These spices have a nice sharp bite that plays well with the malty sweetness. Deliciously sweet and pumpkinny finish. Next year, once Pumking is sold out I will definitely seek this out!
Bottle from 1000s of Beers in Erie. Aroma of pumpkin and pie spices. Pretty standard pumpkin ale. Larry_Duffman (612) - - OCT 22, 2017
I had it from the bottle. The aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The taste is the same with some apple and lemon hints. This was flavorful and rich. The alcohol was hid nicely. The spice was definitely out in force. It was good though. alexsdad06 (10965) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2017
Bottle via trade from backlog notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, some earthy notes, not bad for a pumpkin beer, a touch thin. kevinator (2800) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Good beer. Big aromas and flavors of pumpkin and spice. Hints of sweetness but slightly masked by the nutmeg and cinnamon. Nice coppery-orange color. Full body. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2016
This is one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve ever had. The pumpkin flavor is at the forefront and it has such a nice sweetness to it. It almost tastes like it’s a mix of pumpkin and maple syrup, and it’s 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 didn’t get it on Ratebeer but got it on here now. This beer would be well stocked in my fridge if it wasn’t 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. TizzleJizzle (792) - Garland, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2016
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. ozzy70 (1283) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Sample from bottle at Hy-Vee Oktoberfest. Poured amber, white head. Aroma was pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste was sweet, pumpkin pie. mrjaxson (624) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Liquid pumpkin pie -- nothing else comes to mind. A 3-oz sample of this tonight was just perfect.
