Rating #1200. On tap at Selin’s Grove. Pours clear amber with a big tan nitro head. Aroma that reminds me more of apple pie than pumpkin. Spice seems to be all cinnamon (maybe a bit of ginger) with some nice sweetness that isn’t overbearing. Cinnamon flavor with hints of allspice and ginger, a bit of sweet malt and a clean semi-dry finish. Awesome beer and it seems that simplicity is the key. Easily the best nitro beer I’ve ever had.

On nitro at the brewpub. Had it just in time for Halloween. Pours a dark amber colour with a rich, creamy, large beige coloured head. Aroma of nutmeg, pumpkin, and cinnamon. Nutty flavor of spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, cream, and pumpkin. The palate is a little watery which diminishes the flavour.

On nitro at the brewpub. Pours a deep caramel amber with a creamy medium sized beige head. Aroma of nuts, cream and fresh pumpkin pie filling. Taste of homemade nutty pumpkin pie, nutmeg and cream. A bit watery, but tasty. Sammy (12197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2009
Enjoyed on nitro-tap at the brewpub.Surprisingly good for pumpkin and for nitrogen. Mild spicey, more on the nutmeg. Light orange. A bit less than medium mouthfeel. Lasting white head. Easy drinking, smooth. KornDogg (570) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Nitro tap @ Brewpub. we made a special trip just to try this and it was well worth it, not as good as southern tier’s pumking, but still great.. amber body with great creamy head... aroma of pumpkin and vanilla... body is very creamy and smooth, light... low alcohol content... overall very tasty and easy to drink.. well balanced spices and pumpkin flavor

Nitro tap @ brewpub. Not many beers live up to the hype, including 3 hours of driving excitement, but this is by far the best pumpkin beer I have ever had. Dark golden pour with some white head. Pumpkin spices, cinnamon, vanilla, this was delicious and smelled just as nice. Mostly the fact it is only 5 percent and still has a great full bodied texture and flavor is what kills it.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2011 Draft at Selins Grove Brewpub. Pours an amber body with a creamy vanilla head. Huge lush cinnamon notes, like smelling a cinnamon shaker. Pumpkin pie, and vanilla nitrogenous like notes. Creamy whip body with a beautiful cinnamon spiced accent. This beer is phenomenal, it completely blew me away, at 5% per the menu, i couldn’t believe the body that this one had. I had to have myself another and if the brewpub didn’t close at midnight boy i would have been in trouble. Its very rare to find so much quality flavor with such a full body and yet have so little alcohol influence. Absolutely 100% the best beer i’ve had in this style. This blows away any other pumpkin beer i’ve had to date by a landslide. So so so good! 4.7

Nitro. Pours a deep amber toned lightly crimson bruin body with a 3/4 tan heady tone with light retention n almost no retention. Aromatically all pumpkin, cinnamon, lighter squash tones a hint of cardamine n softer herbal vegetative tones. Very soft body nitrogenous n soft creamy toned body very subtle yet complex. Huge flavorful burst of cinnamon upfront, not sweet as one might expect but more so sharp spicy without being hot so to speak. Softly toning down to squash/pumpkin tones. A hint of seed n spice to finish light lingering/tingling cinnamon. Delicous n incredibly quaffable. A solid pumpkin ale n morre. 4.3 CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
On tap at the brewpub on 10/25/08: Pours a hazy dark copper amber with a dense, creamy light tan head. Aroma of sweet cinnamon and chewy pumpkin flesh with a hint of roasty character. Body starts with good fullness and juicy pumpkin flavor with a nice nutmeg and cinnamon spice balance before a slightly drier doughy finish. A very tasty and well-balanced complex pumpkin brew with great drinkability. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Nitro pour at Selins Grove. Cloudy copper orange color with a fluffy nitro head that lasts. Aroma of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices with some yeast and breadyness. Taste is smooth and sweet with a lot of spice and crust. Definitely creamy and delicious and one of the most interesting pumpkin beers I have had.

Nitro pour at Selins Grove. Pours a murky hazy woody orange with a thick nice fluffy tight nitro head and great lace. Aroma is your typical pumpkin pie spice, a bit of creamy wheat, toasted malts, light smooth sweet crystal and carapils malt- nutmeg and some clove as it warms. Flavor is doughy smooth light yeastiness, toffee, and lots of all spice pumpkin pie spice with some whipped cream smooth light sweetness. Smooth creamy mouthfeel and a nice overall beer especially for a pumpkin beer but I heard people saying it just wasn’t as good as it was last year. It was really good but just not mind blowing like I had thought it would be.
