Draught at the Town Hall Brewery, Minneapolis, MN. jackl (8446) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Slightly cloudy golden color with a small off-white head.
Pumpkin, spices and sugary sweetness in the aroma.
Pumpkin, spices and sugar in the flavor.
I hate pumpkins, I don’t like spices in my beer and sweetness in the beer makes me sick. Why would I like this brew?
Keg @ Town Hall. Amber pour with a tiny white head. Pretty spicy nose. Cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla and banana. Taste is more spicy than sweet. Dry pepper with a bit of chewy caramel at the end. Medium body, soft carb. deyholla (12439) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with an amber hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of sweet grain and pumpkin with a pretty strong spice backbone. Flavor starts with light grains and pumpkin but finish is full of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. falco242 (398) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Really great pumpkin aroma on this guy. Pumpkin is definitely there, so it isn’t a spice bomb, but the spice plays nicely. not super complex after the initial spice/vanilla/pumpkin hit, but definitely a new fall favorite ryanfolty (2611) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2013
November 25, 2013 - on tap at Town Hall Lanes. Clear dark orange pour with limited head. Aroma and taste that were as you would expect with a pumpkin beer. The spice wasn’t too much, but was close to crossing the line for me.

Tap. Dark amber. Little head and lacing . Smells of sweet spice, but taste carries the spice flavor well. More syrupy than what I like, and doesn’t have the perfect mouthfeel. But a solid pumpkin beer. BVery (11390) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Tap at Town Hall Lanes. Clear deep orange pour with a small but persistent white head. Pumpkin, vanilla, and mild spice aroma. Smooth palate. Fairly sweet taste - nice pumpkin character. This is nice. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Potent pumpkin pie and spice scent, pours dark amber on color. Has a pleasant spice taste, one of my favorite pumpkin brews! bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from tap into Pint glass. JaBier (8307) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Appearance: Clear amber-orange with thin head and not much lacing.
Aroma: Smells like sweet, creamy pumpkin pie with a hefty dose of spices.
Taste: Pretty sweet and creamy pumpkin pie mostly. Cinnamon accompanies the sweet taste, while some pretty strong, more bitter spices (clove?, nutmeg?) provide some counterbalance. Despite the sweetness, there may be some dry caramel malts providing backbone.
Palate: Very creamy and smooth for the low abv. Moderate carbonation with semi-dry finish, simply due to the spices.
Overall: Did not know that liquid pumpkin pie could be accomplished at the ~5% abv level. Impressive, although it is a titch to sweet for mass consumption.
Sample at Town Hall on 10/29/10. Clear orange pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon and ginger with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is also cinnamon, ginger and vanilla. Tastes like Libby’s pumpkin pie mix in a glass. Tasty.
