Aroma: The nose is a touch dull, with pumpkin spices, malts, bread, and some mild fruit
Appearance: It pours a clear darker orange color with a head and some good lacework
Flavor: The spice comes out more in the flavor, but the components are pretty similar to the nose
Palate: The body is medium, it drinks easily, and has a mild dryness to the finish
This is an alright example of a pumpkin spice beer, but it just feels a touch on the dull side, especially in the nose. Overall though, it is very drinkable.
Growler from Princeton shared at Moosetoberfest. Poured a slihtly muddy brownish/red with a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma is very well done and like liquid pumpkin pie in a glass. The flavor is taken over by the spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and the pumpkin is more of a background flavor. Solid effort but once again the spices dominate and the pumpkin takes a backseat. rumproasts (5546) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Tap. amber with one finger head. Medium malt with light pie spice. Simple, but decent. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Draft. Pours a orange body with an off whtie head. Pumpkin seed, crust, and some lighter spices of cinnamon. Thin and light with a modest pumpkin body. Nice fall ale. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Pours a light coppery orange- mostly clear and a small fizzy white head. Aroam is typical pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, clovey and fruity esters with a moderate lightly toasted sweet malt backbone. Flavor is also nicely sweet, toasted malts, caramel and slight honey with all the pumpkin pie spices in moderate amounts. Creamy and smooth body and aftertaste. Standard Pumpkin ale- nothing too unique or outstanding, but not bad at all.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 On tap at the New Hope location. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with an average size off white lacing head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, pie crust and pumpkin. Flavors of the same. This was a very solid Pumpkin Ale. Right up there with the Weyerbacher and DFH, maybe not quite as solid...but close. Walked out with a growler of it.

Pours a hazy orange color with a small to medium head with some lace. Aroma is pumpkin pie, they basically nailed the spices in the aroma on this one. The flavor is not so good though, along with the pumpkin pie spices there is a grainy character and what is worse there is some odd cough syrup thing going on. This is fairly watery. alobar (3879) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Clear amber pour with aroma of pumpkin spices with some caramel. Pumpkin with cinnamon, clove, and cardamone flavor with some caramel sweetness. Decent beer. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2009
On tap at the Philly brewpub. Clearish orange brown with some white froth. Nose is pumpkin spice; heavy on the clove and nutmeg. Medium light with moderate carb. Taste like the nose, some lemon and spices. I didn’t pick up too much pumpkin. Spices avoid the bitter aftertaste i sometimes find in brews like this. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2013
On draught at the brewpub in New Hope. Arrived to the table a mostly clear orange amber with a thin-moderate white head. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin along with the requisite pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is a nice combination of pumpkin and spices with some caramel sweetness present as well. The spices do not dominate. Medium bodied. An enjoyable pumpkin ale.
