Deep orange colored pour with a tinge of redness in it. Small off-white head. Some lacing. A gourdish aroma with a bit of spices mixed in. Spicy taste with a malt and pumpkin flavor mix. Not bad.

Rated from notes taken 27 Dec 2013 -- Decent pumpkin, light enough to session, good enough that I would want to session.

Bottle:   Dull dark amber, fairly murky, thin sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Little bit of actual pumpkin pie aroma on the nose.   Otherwise muted cinnamon or nutmeg.   Comes across as a soft pumpkin pie flavor on the tongue, including the crust!   To me it reminds me of a none imperial Pumpking from Southern Tier.   Has the flavors, muted, and not as brash or alcoholic.   Pretty tasty in that its not just spices thrown together.   Yep, its pie.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, soft pumpkin pie lingers.   Could stand to be a bit brighter, but as its its pretty tasty.   Thanks Brad for sending a few of these!

12 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a nice amber color, slightly syrupy, with a small off white head. The aroma was sweet, pumpkin pie with the standard spice blend. The flavor was initially sweeter with some spices. The pumpkin seemed to be from extract rather than fresh pumpkins. Midway some pie crust works its way in to the flavor sprinkled with a little molasses. This is never big like some of the imperialized pumpkin beers out there, just a decent drinking pumpkin beer.

Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2012
This beer pours a brownish-amber color with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of nutmeg and pumpkin. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, spice and faint pumpkin. The finish is sweet with a malt and cinnamon aftertaste. Not very pumpkiny but a decent beer.

Bottle @ home, thanks to Jake. Clear copper pour with a small khaki head. Nose is strong nutmeg, some squash, bread, and toast. Light vanilla, caramel, and all spice. Lots of nutmeg and all spice. Caramel, toast, and toffee aromas. Apple, squash, and sweet malt. Slightly watery.

Pours gold with a white head. Aromas of pumpkin, and spices. Taste the same with some malt sweetness. Can actually taste a little crust also. Not to bad.

Tmoney99 (14982) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear dark orange color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Solid spice and pumpkin aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium pumpkin spicy sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid seasonal beer.

Drjohnrock (841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Sample from bottle at 2011 Cincinnati Beer Fest on Fountain Square. Medium to dark amber color, sweet aroma of spices and pumpkin, thin body, moderate bittersweet flavor--can actually taste the pumpkin as well as the spices. A little like an alcoholic pumpkin pie. Not the biggest pumpkin beer I’ve ever tasted but certainly satisfactory.

Ar: Cinnamon, a hint of toasted malt. Ap: Orange, clear - small white head with poor retention and a thin ring of foam. T: Deep caramel and brown sugar, some squash flavor - medium-sweet, cinnamon and nutmeg, a bit of allspice - finish has some anise - low bitterness. P: Medium body, medium carbonation - finish is medium-dry. O: Good session pumpkin ale - has good malt flavor, spicing, and a pleasant amount of sweetness.
