On tap at Gingerman prior to going to Joe’s going away party. Pours an orange amber with a medium sized white head. Dusty cinnamon, spices, allspice, toasted pie crust. Thin to medium bodied, bitter malt and empty grain with stale spices. Empty and disappointing. JoeMcPhee (10137) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2011
Amber pour. Light white head. The nose is lightly spicy. Soft clove and gingery spiciness. A touch of amber/crystal malt. Lightly crackery with a bit of light spicy flavour. A little bit of light chewy sweetness. Spicy and nicely dry. Fairly tasty brew - if kind of by the numbers. blipp (9929) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Pumpkiny aroma with light spices. The flavor has pumpkin, spices and light notes of vanilla. Not bad. nimbleprop (8949) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Growler from Big Z Beverage. Pours a transparent, deep gold with a thin, creamy white head. Big spicy aroma, ginger, nutmeg, sweet, brown sugar, caramel, honey, root vegetables. Flavor was big on the ginger upfront, sweet, like a sweet potato with some brown sugar, honey, nutmeg. Medium bodied, dry finish. vtafro (7451) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Draft at Rattle ’N’ Hum. Orange pour with white head. Full pumpkin, pepper, ginger and some sweeter aromas. Flavor is pumpkin first, spice and honey tones.

Draft. Pours an orange body with a golden white head. Spices, incense, light cinnamon and nutmeg. Body felt a bit thin. Spices are moderately bright, with a light malt bill holding it up. Good. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger as Pumpkin Brewster ale 5.5%. Pours a med orange with a thin white head. Aroma of pumpkin spice- although not over the top- toned down which I like- nutmeg is big, light cinnamon, vanilla, clove, medium toffee caramel, and biscuit, some grassy note. flavor is toast, biscuit, honey sweetness, light caramel, spice, pumpkin spice, earth, nutmeg and a medium dry finish. Ok- easy drinking and not bad for a pumpkin ale. Jow (4170) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2010
On tap at Stagshead. My great pumpkin discovery continues. This is a medium bodied slightly sticky brew. plenty of malt, some caramel, nutmeg, and pumpkin spice. OK. Capa (3631) - DC, Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Caramel and biscuit malts throughout. Light pie spicing accompanies the pumpkin flavor, too. Very nice and a very drinkable pumpkin. Slipstream (2720) - USA - SEP 27, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2010 First rating! My third today. From a cask at the NY Real Beer festival. Pretty malty, lightly sweet, with a touch of pumpkin pie spices. A smooth and pleasant pumpkin pie brew, but not one of 6pt’s better releases.
