UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Drank out of short pilsner glass out of 12 oz bottle. Aroma- strong lovely notes of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and spice. Appearance- golden orange. Clouded with no head and very light carbonation. Taste- nice flavor of pumpkin and spice. Smooth but flavorful. Had off tap once before and it is better on draft. Palate- slightly bitter carbonated mouthfeel but pleasant taste. Overall- best pumpkin beer i have had as there is sufficient pumpkin taste. Better on tap if available EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Aroma is mainly spice; with a little bit of biscuit/dough. Nice pumpkin pie spiced flavor. Pretty sweet. Some bread/caramel malt flavors, too -- which complement the spices well. I wouldn’t mind a little more of them. cajuncocoa (6) - - OCT 27, 2012 does not count
Perfectly spiced, just like a pumpkin pie...delicious! This might be my overall favorite pumpkin ale so far. Gription79 (2886) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. This is a great pumpkin ale. It is easy drinking, spicy, hint of pumpkin. Makes a great black and tan. KatSassafrass (6) - Nevada, USA - OCT 19, 2012 does not count
Bottleat home. Spicy, cinnamon, nutmeg. Pleasurable pumpkin taste but not overpoweringly so. A nice slight cream/vanilla finish almost like a dollop of whipped cream on top of pumpkin pre.

Pint at Crown Canyon Pub in Tucson. Pumpkin and ligjt spice in the aroma. Light brown and hazy. Pumpkin flavor is not big and maybe not big enough. Spices are light, too. This is completely inoffensive but is short on gumption. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle... Poured copper orange with a pn eggy head. Dissipated to nothing though. Nose had nice spacing to it. Cinnamon and nutmeg for sure. Tasted of pumpkin pie spice, cloves, and malt added a nice pie crust tone. Vanilla, nice sweetness. Very drinkable. taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Brown, some off white head. Spice aroma. Taste is more spice than pumpkin - like a pumpkin pie. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Bottled. Poured hazy medium orange with lots of fine sediment suspended in there.. short, spotty beige head. The aroma picked up a lot of cinnamon and nutmeg, with much less pumpkin meat and vanilla coming through.. the spices were nice, but there was just no substance. The flavor found bready notes and a little pumpkin on the watery core.. nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice surrounded.. finished quick with a touch of sourness and a wash of residual pie-like spicage. Light-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. watery in several places.. this wasn’t offensive by any means, but it needed more of everything. Reid (2527) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2012
12oz single from "Lifesource" Salem.
Dark burnt orange coloured beer with a large frothy/rocky cream coloured head.
Great allspice and pumpkin pie aromas..mouthwatering really.
Taste is much the same with the spice dominating at first then the rest of the pie coming later.
Could use a little more body though
Altogether a nice seasonal
