Wow, maybe one of the best pumpkins evers! I’m surprised its rated so low. Mild spicing of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Taste is of pumpkin and caramel malts. Palate finishes real sweet and sticky. The color is a nice clear orange. This was up there with dogfish head. EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Really light spice aroma; a lot more in the flavor (not too much), combined with some bread/dough and sweet malt character -- which complements the spice pretty well. I get a light banana flavor, too... Not sure if that’s from the spices or yeast or what. A nice brew, as pumpkin spiced beers go... Jcb14 (13) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Generally with a pumpkin ale I expect a good smell, but this was the worst smelling pumpkin ale I have ever had. It smelled a little like a dead fish. The taste was slightly better that the smell, but not by much. The quality of the beer is sub-standard for this style.
It had a good head and even better head retention. Leafs93 (2305) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Pours amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is light pumpkin, nutmeg, caramel and earthy. Taste is sweet with a touch of spice. Light bodied. Very nice pumpkin beer as its understated qualities make it stand out in a sea of over spiced offerings. beerbastard (844) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Amber pour. Spices needed in the nose are barely noticeable. The flavors are very vegetable like. It lacks the sweetness and spices needed to make this enjoyable. This one didn’t make it.

The aroma was of bread an yes pumpkin. The appearance was a cloudy orange with a medium cream head. The taste was a bit flat and a bit of bread and pumpkin. The beer is easy to drink but overall was a bit on the week side. jkwood04 (5452) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 6, 2012
12oz bottle in a glass. Pours copper with a beige head. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel malts, and floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent pumpkin beer. Robbievegas (230) - Las vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Tried this in the bottle, nice roasted pumpkin flavor with hints of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg.

12 oz bottle, best by 2/9/13. Pours clear ruby-amber with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.jhgrantjr (473) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 4, 2012
The aroma is mellow pumpkin and spices.
The flavor is vegetal malts with nice spicing - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. There’s a bit of a metallic finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.
Overall, a decent pumpkin beer. It’s a bit mellow, but the spicing is well done.
Poured a brown-amber color. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, nutmeg. Taste is of same, but a little watered down. Bit as full bodied as other pumpkin ales I've tried.
