A nice ruby colored Pumpkin with a head that disappears quick. Scent is mild cinnamon, coriander, and nutmeg on top of pumpkin pie, not too sweet. I like that the first sip reminds you that the pumpkin is a squash, very realistic. The 7.7% alcohol is invisible right up until you breathe out. I personally think this is one of the best pumpkin beers there is, and Im kind of a fan of the variety. Second best after the Venetucci?

Dogbrick (11868) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2016
Sample at GABF 10/08/2016, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Brownish-orange color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lace. Pumpkin spices and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of malt, cinnamon, nutmeg and caramel. The finish is sweet with a pumpkin pie spice and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Angelmonster (193) - Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Pours an amber/brown body, head is one finger and sand colored. Lacing is great and head retention is good. Smells of nutmeg, allspice, clove, all the usual pumpkin spices. Caramel malt and burnt sugar are next, faint earthy hops are also present. No alcohol is detected. Taste is of a typical yet well made pumpkin beer. Heavy on pumpkin spice, nutmeg, cardamon, allspice and clove. Roasted, biscuity malt seems to be the backbone of the beer, very much like a brown ale. Alcohol is more apparent in the flavor than the aroma though the hops arent really tasted. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. Head stuck around for awhile and provided some nice frothiness. Overall this was a well done pumpkin beer, true to style. Nothing outstanding about this style though, doesnt really stand out. Probably wouldnt buy again due to the massive amount of pumpkin beers out there released in a short span.

Panzuriel (2003) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Appearance: Deep copper brown. Opaque. Thin ring of tiny white bubbles. Nose: pumpkin earthiness with restrained touches of pie spice. Hints of caramel sweetness Taste: a bit of caramel and spice over a medium roasted malt and earthy pumpkin base. Body: medium to thinner Parting thoughts: A very nice pumpkin. Just enough spice with a good pumpkin flavor. Decent alcohol kick, though.

monk191 (1853) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2016
A decent pumpkin ale overall. Nothing unique but tasty and refreshing. Pours a nice clear Amber with a tan head. Smells of pumpkin and spices. Taste is bright and carbonated, with pumpkin, cinnamon and a bit of a watery finish. Had in the can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is an average pumpkin beer. Some vegetable notes. A little dry with some vegetable bitterness at the finish.

Named for a medieval Scottish sword, Claymore Scotch ale is a tribute to the legendary "Wee Heavy" beers of Scotland. A malty, deep-ruby-hued ale, it features a generous amount of caramel sweetness, a reserved hop profile and a subtle warming character, at 7.7% alcohol by volume. Claymore will be available in six-packs and on draft through mid-April. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bill Becker (850) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 6, 2016
On draught at Raccas in Casper. Pours a clear amber, small head of foam that shrinks to a ring around the glass. Pumpkin spices in the smell, not particularly strong. More meat, so to speak in the taste. Nutmeg, pumpkin flavours, still on the milder side but enjoyable. Medium body and carbonation. Nice.

16oz can 2/4/15 (Whole Foods-Lamar)-Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma of pumpkin and spices. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and is one of the better pumpkins.
