5oz sample from honeymoon. This was a surprisingly good pumpkin ale. Lots of pumpkin character without the overwhelming pumpkin pie spice. Enjoyable and not cloying. Travlr (25768) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Draft at Pigeon Forge. Hazy amber color, small tan head. Aroma of mixed spice. Taste has cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Not bad, nearbeer (5559) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Pint on tap. Lightly hazy orange-copper. Nose is typical pie spices and some caramelized pumpkin. Taste is the same, plus some toast and a touch of leafy hop. Not too heavy on the spices, but could ease it up a bit. Light-medium body has low-average carbonation, is lightly spicy-tingly and sweetish. wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Pours the color of a toasted pumpkin with little head. Nose is sweet toasty malts, pumpkin spice. Flavor is brown sugar, pumpkin spice, fresh English walnuts, muffins, and toasty malts. medium body and moderately full sweet finish. Pretty good.

From a growler. Copper, no foam. Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. And pumpkin, as well. Lots of spice in the flavor, but not overbearing. I approve!Guyute_Pig (103) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2011

From a growler - Growler from 11/02/07, drank on 11/03/07. Cloudy orange, very thin head. Oddly restrained aroma - definately pumpkin pie, but not overpowering. Much more agressive flavor. Not really pumpkin pie, but more like pumpkin bread, with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, plus some vanilla notes. In fact, I’m gonna it reminds me of Pumpkin bread with a bit of vanilla frosting. It’s very tasty but a growler is a bit...much. Actually towards the end of the evening, we discovered that if you mix it with a pale ale it cuts the sweetness nicely.
Draft at brewery. Absolute worst pumpkin beer I have ever tasted. One of the worst beers I have tried period. Cloyingly sweet with an artificial saccharin like taste to it. Fortunately I only ordered one for the wife. She actually turned to me and said she would prefer to drink a bud light. Drainpour. bluesandbarbq (33) - Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2011
On tap @ Smoky Mountain Brewery in Gatlinburg, 11-08-2010. This pumpkin pie-in-a-glass pour a beautiful clear medium amber-brown with a tight creamy head and tons of lacing with every sip. Big spiced aroma of nutmeg, brown sugar, cinnamon, slight ginger, biscuit and pumpkin pie. Taste is sweet and spicy with a creamy mouthfeel, really like a rich pumpkin pie with whipped cream topping. Most excellent! pfoxyjohn and I were lucky enough to order the last two pints available at the brewery - good timing. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Draft sample at the 13th Annual Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Orange in the glass with an off-white head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Wheat and spice aroma. Wheat and spice also in the flavor with a backing of pumpkin. Medium body with a light spice aftertaste.
