Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant orange-amber color with a large orange-beige head. The aroma was spicy with strong notes of cinnamon and nutmeg and a touch of banana bread. The flavor was spicy with loads of nutmeg and cinnamon and a moderately sweet malt base that turns a bit dryish towards the long spicy finish. Medium body. Solid. emacgee (4711) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Pours a soft orange amber with a one finger creamy eggshell white head. Nose is meaty pumpkin and spice, mostly allspice, some bready sweet malt. Flavor is more balanced than most, present pumpkin character with a bready malt aspect. Nice balance with the spice profile. Not too sweet. MoDog (928) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2009
12oz bottle served in a shaker. Poured an attractive, clear honey/amber hue with a thin head of off-white foam that quickly settled. Minimal oily lace. The aroma consisted of caramelized sugar, toasted pumpkin, nutmeg, and also some cinnamon. The flavor was somewhat vegetal with toasted pumpkin, honey, and a weird blend of pie spices. Strong nutmeg and brown sugar. Medium-bodied. Lightly carbonated. Not really a fan of this one. Butters (4062) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Clear light amber with no real head. Aroma is pleasant typical nutmeg and pumpkin pie spices. But the flavor is stale cardboard and a metallic copper twinge. Not really digging this one. But not horrible. SrSilliGose (3324) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 15, 2009

Muddy orange pour with soft carbonation. Vegetal aroma combined with light spice. Thin mouth-feel. Pumpkin, toffee and light nutmeg. I liked the fact that this was not overly spiced, still a style that just wont grow on me... adrian910ss (2606) - Doylestown, PA, USA - OCT 14, 2009

orange wtih nice white head, very nice ginger and nutmeg to the nose. some bitterness present followed by even a little spice bitterness before a lot of pumpkin pie spices to the flavor and even some floral hop notes. some fruity esters to the palate before a dry, but full finish. a great pumpkin ale, well balanced, not overbearing. one of the best i’ve head fiver29 (1112) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2008

Too much spices in this one. Still a decent brew though. thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2005
