22 oz- Pours a nice amber with a small white bubbly head. Obviously strong scents of nutmeg,spices, and gingerbread. Tastes of the same. Way too strong in spices for me, but if you like pumpkin, this is the one for you. shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2007
22oz bottle fresh. 2007 First Bottling. Pour is a bright amber/orange with a very minimal head of small white spots. Aroma is rich with spices, especially allspice and nutmeg. I can see how others don’t enjoy it, but I find it very enticing. The flavor is pretty much the same thing. Pretty nice spicy pumpkin beer with some pleasant doughy malts. 8/2/6/3/16 drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2007
22oz bottle. pours clear copper with small white head. the aroma is loaded with pumpkin and nutmeg. flavor taste just like pumpkin pie, loaded with pumpkin flavor. there’s also some spicy hop note lingering. carbonation is smooth, the alcohol is well hidden as its only slightly noticed through some warmth in the back of the throat. at times, it’s all a bit too much, but if you should have one pumpkin beer this season, this should be it. i actually paired this with pumpkin pie. as you can imagine, it was a bit overkill. rob897 (62) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2007
this was not your normal pumkin beer, very unique flavors that made this one really stand out among the rest. hiddenvariable (211) - pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2007
bottle. pours a slightly hazy orange with a medium white head that fades to the edges and leaves a bit of lacing. the smell is wow-inducing. it smells, as others have noted, pretty much exactly like pumpkin pie. you can even tell the crust from the gelatin. if pumpkin pie came in liquid form, this is what it would taste like. the alcohol is scarily well-hidden. i’m not a huge fan of the style (nor pumpkin pie), but this is by far the best i’ve had.

Pours a clear amber orange color with a tan head. Aroma is pumpkin and some nutmeg. Flavor is pumpkin, a hint of cinnamon, and nutmeg. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2008
22 oz bottle, via jsquire. Pours a clear orangish body under a one finger fizzy beige head that faded fairly quickly to a wispy film. My first though on the nose was that it smelled exactly like Old Bay. It’s really a mix of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon I suppose, but once Old Bay hit me, I couldn’t smell anything but. Funny, the label lists the ingredients, but doesn’t mention any spices at all. Lots of caramel and brown sugar sweetness from the malt. The flavor is really different for a pumpkin beer. I’m getting lots of sweet malt and a toasted marshmallow middle fading to a vanilla laced pumpkin meat finish. Just a little bit of citrusy hops peeking past all the spice. Thankfully it’s not just pie spice overload. The mouthfeel is somewhat thick and chewy but not sticky or cloyingly sweet. The carbonation is a little too overactive for me, but that just seems to be a Southern Tier thing I’ve noticed. A pretty decent pumpkin beer, probably in my top 5, but nowhere near Selins Grove Brewing or even the Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin as far as favorites go. JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
(on bottle) Effing love the graphics on this bottle. Clear orange color, steady white head. Nice aroma; muscat, vanilla, popcorn(?= and cloves. Creamy mouth, warm alcohol taste. Very nice, has some problems with the coco in the last finih, tho´. carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2008
22oz. pours a golden with a slight orange ting. aroma is huge spice... clove nutmeg cinnamon, and sweetness... like a pumpkin pie with too much spice. mouthful is more of the same... i bit heavy on the clove... an interesting take on pumpkin beer... more pumpkin than beer... topherh (1928) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Pours orange with a thin white head. Aroma is pumpkin and light spices. Flavor is sweet, lots of pumpkin, the flavor is over the top.
