bottle thanks to bhensonb. poured a clear amberish with a white head. aroma and flavor were pumpkin and spices. body was light with medium carbonation. kinda reminded me of a scaled back DFH punkn. KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle. The pour was a murky medium amber brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy white head that was fully diminishing but left behind some nice spotty residue which allowed for some good lacing that was left sticking to the glass.
The aroma was very light of a toasted biscuit malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin.
It tasted mildly sweet with just a hint of cinnamon and brown sugar in the beginning and finished mildly bitter with a note of nutmeg and a pumpkin presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow, then faded quickly.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery yet slightly dry in texture with a prickly carbonation.
Overall a refreshingly mild brew with a nice dose of flavor that is not overdone.

Clear amber pour with a small head, left a collar around the glass. Aroma had hints of caramel and a good pumpkin spice presence, lots of spice. Flavors were similar with a lot of spices lingering throughout. Light mouthfeel with mild carbonation. Light bitter finish, spices lingered. Decent, drinkable, light pumpkin brew.

Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours dark orange with a slight pumpkin aroma. Not much on the tongue. Clean finisher. Not my favorite pumpkin beer.

Aroma: allspice, toasty malts, other pumpkin spices-cinnamon,nutmeg,ginger
Taste: allspice, toasted malts
Not a bad pumpkin ale, but it is thin. A good mixer with stouts.
12oz bottle. Having tasted a few too many pumpkin beers this year I didn’t expect this one to blow my mind, I suppose I’m a tough critic on pumpkin beers. This was just a middle of the road pumpkin. Faint hints of pumpkin pie but a nice spicy nutmeg flavor/aroma though. Worth a try but don’t go out of the way nickd717 (4999) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 27, 2011
12oz bottle from City Beer. Somewhat cloudy orange-amber in color with a one-finger off-white head. Pumpkin and spice aroma, rather standard with your typical cinnamon/nutmeg and some caramel. Slightly sweet caramel malt base with pie crust, pumpkin, and major spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. Decent balance. Medium-bodied with some spicy tingling and average carbonation. An above average but not super-impressive pumpkin ale. lamas (1661) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle. Bottled on: 08/03/11. Mine doesn’t actually say that it’s organic. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a smallish antique white head. Roasted pumpkin pie spices, burnt crust, pumpkin, caramel, and some vanilla beans in the predominantly vegetal aroma. Medium-bodied. The taste starts with some mildly roasted squash qualities and is followed by a little caramel and some pumpkin. A touch of vanilla in the middle. A bit of a wheaty finish with a dash of nutmeg. A unique take on a pumpkin beer. Travlr (26437) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Draft. Amber color, beige head. Aroma of pumpkin pie. Taste is spice >> gourd. Middle of the road for a pumpkin beer.
