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. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Draft at Philly location. Pretty subdued and lighter pumpkin beer. Pours a nice copper with offwhite head. Nose is spicy, nutmeg and squash. Perhaps some cinnamon as well. On taste, nice and full malt body, taste of pumpkin meat, more of the spice blend as well, though subdued. Pretty well balanced and what I’d expect from a well made Pumpkin Ale. Nice. 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.

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.
on tap at the Philadelphia location. Lightly hazy orange/amber in color. Aroma is nutmeg, pumpkin, and toasted malt. Taste is toasty malt with pumpkin, nutmeg and caramel in the back. Light to moderately hoppy for the style and pretty well attenuated. Medium bodied, finishes lightly bitter. pretty well done.
