3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Craftsman Table & Tap. Dark orange verging on brown, small, dissipating off-white head. Clear, definitely filtered. Big pumpkin spice on the nose, with nutmeg, cinnamon, and a pronounced hop bitterness. Sweet on the front and mid palate, with some toffee and caramel blending well with the pumpkin characters, and a great bitter kick from the hops on the back end. Surprisingly good pumpkin ale from Potosi.
Pours a nice reddish amber with minimal head and lacing. Aromas of pumpkin, spices and sweet malts. Taste is malty with pumpkin dominant. Hops are fairly light. Good mouth density. Overall, a nice pumpkin ale for the fall season. Akirschbaum (18) - Glen Haven, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2017
An awesome Autumn beer. Has an amber appearance and a malty taste with hints of pumpkin pie. Caramelized baked pumpkins give this ale it’s signature taste. George999 (462) - Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2016
Bottle - the pour is clear and a auburn color with a thin white head. The aroma is caramel, pumpkin, and light nutmeg. The taste is pleasantly sweetened, followed quickly by a bitter and spiced finish. The pumpkin is more to the finish off the beer and the initial flavor is the bitters and spices. The mouthfeel is thin to medium. muzzlehatch (4970) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s on Gammon Road, Madison WI, served around cellar temp in a pint glass. A fairly sizable fluffy head tops a medium slightly cloudy amber body and decays with moderate speed...pumpkin-spice aroma is not overwhelmingly pie-like (ex: Southern Tier Pumking) but offers plenty of pungency and a mix of light malt, pumpkin, and herbs (tarragon) along with expected cinnamon, cloves, etc...body is similarly restrained, with the spicing fairly low and a decent pale malt texture dominating, until a rather bitter and dry, perhaps desiccated finish...more than a little burnt/toasted character throughout; reasonably full-bodied, low to moderate carbonation. I guess I’m pretty tired of pumpkin beers at this point, and I certainly don’t love this one, but it’s fairly easy to drink and neither too sweet and cloying nor bland, dry and dull. Good job, I guess. drpimento (3726) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2016
It is what it says it is, but still it’s so rich that I can’t imagine drinking more than one of these. Aroma is rich spicy pumpkin pie/beer. Flavor is similar but muted and cut a little with the carbonation. Good body. Pleasant finish.

12/28/15. 12oz bottle from a mix 12pk from Trackside. Amber orange pour under a small khaki head, mild lacing. Pie spices on the aroma, light caramel aspect. Pie spices in the flavor as well, cinnamon and nutmeg and such, light caramel. Meh. wlajwl (7005) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Aroma is cinnamon/cloves/spices, pumpkin and malts. The flavor is cinnamon/cloves, light pumpkin, malts, very light fruit and a mild heat in the finish.

On tap - Pours brown with ruby tints. Nose is lots of baking spice, clove, ginger, and pumpkin bread. Taste is the same--real spice heavy. Sweet but not overbearing. Thin and well-carbonated. Nsanders (1162) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Tap at Mars Cheese Castle. Orange. Pumpkin, over ripe apples, cinnamon and sugar. Taste has a over ripe apple sweetness with a dry spice finish. Body is lighter with a dry feel. nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Tap at Old Fashioned. Unfiltered glowing orange-red body. Frothy orange-beige head. Has a nice pumpkin flavor, but a touch of astringency doesn’t help. Leans into the sweetness a little, you’d like to see some more refined malt tones. The aroma is kind of pungent, cheap. Not bad, but not one I’d revisit.
