The best pumpkin Ive had to date. Pours an orangey brown with light head. Nose is all pumpkin and traditional pumpkin pie spices. Taste is more of the same with just enough hop bitterness creeping in at the end to ensure you know youre drinking beer.

Thanks to daknole. Bottle pours orange with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Flavor shows the same with additional hints of vanilla. Damn tasty and overall one of the spicier pumpkin brews out there.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 The best pumpkin ale in my opinion. Great balance between the pumpkin and spice. 8% is just right.

Poured into a snifter. Picked this up at Ricks a month or so back. Color is a slightly-hazed orange color that is just a bit dark. A short white head with just a bit of lacing forms on the brew. The nose is fairly sweet with some nice pumpkin pie notes as well as a pretty good amount of pumpkin-pie spices. The flavor is really nice with the sweet pumpkin, brown sugar, and spices really integrating together quite well. I couldnt believe that the alcohol was this high when I read it after drinking this one down a bit--its not detectable at all. Feel is nice and creamy. Medium body with good carbonation. Overall, one of the better pumpkin brews Ive come across and Im glad to try this one this season. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-19-2010

Orange pour, light head. aroma is so strong on pumpkin, graham, pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is, wow, an amazing creamy pumpkin pie! one of the spiciest and most pumpkin pie flavored beers I have tried.

SourNotes (104) - Bloomington, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Hazy mohagany/brown with orange and red highlights smells of brown sugar and pumpkin spice with a bit of malt and alcohol. touch of cherry. no sign of hops, a little biscuit/graham cracker and sugar cookie tastes a bit like liquid pumpkin pie. additional malt notes and some cherry. really low hop presence. A touch boozy. strange this beer almost reminds me of a bock because of the cherry notes and the malt. head retention was awful, low carbontion. not impressed by that. a bit flat on the mouthfeel drinkability is about average. a bit too much pumpkin spice without the carbonation and body to help it out.

Aroma:Pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger in the aroma. Appearance:Orangish-red color. Taste:Great pumpkin flavor, the pumpkin spices are well balanced. Palate:Creamy, good carbonation. Overall:This one is a good easy-drinking pumpkin ale. Ive had better, but Ive also had much worse.

The 12 oz bottle was courtesy of Strykzone. Poured a very dark amber color with an off-white head that clung to the glass like glue. A strong nose of pumpkin pie aroma with nutmeg and cinnamon. Quite full bodied with as creamy smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is intense with lots of spices. The finish is very spicy with pumpkin backed with nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. Right up there with the very best of the pumpkin ales.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors.
The nose is a light, earthy pumpkin with a bit of mace, leafy hops, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Very nice. It pours a deep amber color with a very frothy, light tan head. Great head retention. The flavor is malty and sweet with a heavy dose of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Sweet, but not too sweet with a bit of spicy bitterness in the end. Medium bodied with a slightly lower than average carbonation leading to a short to medium pumpkin pie finish. Truly one of the best pumpkin ales Ive had and its light enough in body to session.
