On tap at Vintage. Poured hazy medium amber with a creamy whitish head.. looked great in the glass! The aroma picked up sweeter pumpkin meat and a touch of bread with accents of clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon.. came together nearly perfectly! The flavor found pumpkin meat and pale malts at the core.. tart pumpkin, nutmeg, and cloves surrounded.. sharper on the back-end.. not as well composed as the nose, but close. Well-carbonated with very good feel and flow across the palate.. great stuff! bobbypaulson (217) - Fergus Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2011
At the brewery before the penn state Wisconsin game. Go Penn State. Pours a murky unseeable golden brown with a creamy off white head that leaves a ring. Smell is of cinnomin and clove and light pumpkin. Taste is super smooth and spicier nice with a pumpkin pie after taste. Nicely done I like the smoothness of this pumkin ale not watery at all or thin. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is murky brown/amber with a khaki head. Aroma shows notes of pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of caramel and gingerbread cookies. There is a definate savory quality to the pumpkin they used and plenty of spice to round it out. Overall body is moderate, somewhat sweet, and the finish is spicy. Best pumpkin beer of the festival hands down. agent_511 (157) - - SEP 29, 2012
Very good pumpkin ale. Spicy aroma, with a hint of pumpkin. Orange-amber color, slightly hazy. Spritzy carbonation. Pumpkin and spice is also prominent in the flavor. A fun and tasty beer. Gespuccian (141) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours dark ruby. Smells amazing. Huge aroma of cinnamon, clove, even pumpkin. Taste follows. This a nice, spicy pumpkin pie in a glass. Finishes smooth, a little warming booze. This is up there with some of the best pumpkin beers I've had.

On tap at Vintage, pours an unclear dark brown color with a thin white head and lacing, aroma is of spices mixed in with some apple notes, the flavor is full of spices but not overwhelming by any means, the mouthfeel is very dry but yet satisfying, pretty good.

On draught at the Vintage brewery/brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy brownish rust colored brew with an off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, cinnamon, hint of nutmeg, clove and some gingerbread. Taste is medium bodied, with caramel and mostly nutmeg. Finish has a lingering toasted caramel malt aftertaste along with nutmeg and some seasonal spices. MrPickles (438) - Waunakee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2010
On tap at the Brewpub. Cloudy brown pour with aromas of pumpkin, nutmeg and whip cream. Not as sweet as the ST, but a good mix of sweetness and spices. One of the best pumpkin beers I have had. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2011
On tap at Vintage brewpub. Murky brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of pumpkin, malt, nutmeg, allspice, clove and caramel. Spice cabinet come take a seat! Taste of pumpkin, allspice, pepper, nutmeg and heave clove with a pumpkin chaser. A solid pumpkin ale. nuplastikk (6358) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Draft at Vintage. Snifter. Thick brown-amber color, minimal head. Spicy cinnamon, herb aroma. A big, spice bomb of a pumpkin ale. Sugary, sweet, but well executed nonetheless. Spices are upfront, but the rich malts incorporate it well. Not spectacular, but still pretty nice.
