COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Pumpkin and Spices(Cinnamon,Nutmeg,Cardamom,Cloves). This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is heartier, spicier, and more caramelly and pumpkiny than its faint brethren! Perfect finisher on a cool autumn night, or match it up with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream. If you don't agree this is the mother of all pumpkin ales, then you just don't like mothers!

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2007 22oz bottle. Pours clear orange with a medium head. Fair lacing. Aroma is nutmeg, pumpkin, tangy cinnamon and other pie spices. Taste pumpkin, malt sweetness, pie-spices and cardamom. Finishes sweet with a malt-vanilla and cardamom taste. Spiciness covers the alcohol cleanly. I finally tried a lot of the pumpkin beers this year, and Im going to rate all four of my favorites now from my cellar. Weyerbachers is number 1.

This beer was awesome. Ive had several pumpkin ales and Im usually not a fan. This was a very smooth drinking and pleasing ale to go along with Thanksgiving dinner. Hints of nutmeg and masked the alcohol very well. Id suggest this to anyone even if they did not usually like pumpkin ales

I love pumpkin beers, and this one is the best I have ever had. The beer was nice and heavy, but still very drinkable. It smelled just like a pumpkin pie with lots of cinnamon, cloves, vanilla. It tasted like a pie too and there were even subtle hints of nutmeg. The alcohol was barely present and the mouth feel was very smooth. This was one great beer. I cant wait until next fall to get another one.

22 oz. bottle via trade with jasonmech77 - Pours a clear amber color with an average size off white head. Light lacing. Has a spicey (nutmeg & clove) aroma. Flavor is mainly nutmeg with some caramel malt sweetness. Light to medium body. Thin palate. Pumpkin beers are not my favorite style, but its worth a try. Thanks Jason

Bomber to share with the family at Thanksgivingl. Pours a clear moderate amber with nutty brown hints and a thick lasting off white head. Aroma is nutmeg and cinnamon- pumpkin pie spices- thcik malt etc. Flavor is oily with rela pumpkin flavor, more spice, whoel clove and some nutmmeg- and lots of caramel sweetness. Fully and nice mouthfeel. After tasting a bunhc of different pumpkin beers, this one is the clear winner- nothing really stands a chance against this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2007 Deep amber-orange color with light head. Nice, sweet pumpkin and spice aroma. Taste is spicy and sweet - Rich pumpkin and smooth malts. Cinnamon and pumpkin bread in there too. Thick and chewy. By far the best pumpkin (that may not be saying much) and the best Ive had in the style.

12 oz bottle via pineypower (thanks!). This pours a semi hazy dark amber with a small head. This is the best pumkin aroma i have smelled, because it smells like raw fresh pumpkin and not a bunch of overdone fake spices. All i smell is fresh pumpkin and maybe a LITTLE cinnamon and vanilla. Nice. Tastes like it smells with some added whipped cream and just a little nutmeg.. Is a bit over-carbonated though. Nice finish. Light to medium body. Refreshing and easy to drink. Haha, never thought i would like a pumkin beer, let alone an Imperial one, lol....

Its no Lakefront, but I would I call it Imperial comparatively. But the higher alcohol content makes it meater than some of the others. I get nutmeg and cloves no cinnamon though---which fine. I agree with pobstk--like Chai Tea (which I love!). Would match nicely with turkey and stuffing, I may round some up for next week.
