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!

bottle = Mamabeer should know - this IS the mother of all pumpkin beers. This is the first pumpkin that comes through in AROMA and appearance. One whiff gives you all those warm fuzzy spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Of course the golden copper pumpkin color only enhances its appeal. Smooth palate with a taste that makes you want to take another bite!

reddish amber body with no head...aroma of light pumpkin and heavy cinnamon/nutmeg...flavor is initially heavy in cinnamon and nutmeg, and finishes with a brown sugar, pumpkin aftertaste...average palate

Bottled. Poured orangey brown with a tan head. The aroma is pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is malty, and spicy, with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves predominating. The finish was mildly hoppy with a hint of alcohol. Great stuff!

A pretty good pumpkin ale. Nice pumpkin taste and smooth body. For some reason im still saying blue moon pumpkin ale is the best.

Had to settle for this beer because others we not available. It has a great aroma, but a little too hoppy for me on the finish. I thought an imperial would have a little more body to it. Great overall though

A copper color, with white frothy head, this has a great aroma of pumpkin and spice. The taste moves from a slight hop bite, into the spices, and finishes with the sweet, pumpkin-caramel flavors. The body of this was exactly what I was looking for in a Pumpkin Ale... A great way to celebrate autumn!

Most defiinitely the best pumpkin ale Ive had as it wasnt too artificial and it was hyped up with a big complex spicy flavor. I just wish I had some nice pumpkin pie dessert with it.

Bottle shared with my wife over (Canadian) Thankgiving dinner. Thanks to HogTownHarry for the bottle. Pours a dark orange-amber with a big off-white head. Aroma is spicey as all hell, with lots of nutmeg and cloves. Body is a bit lighter than expected, but since we were drinking it with food, that was OK. Flavour is BIG - caramelly malt, kick-ass spices, sweet pumpkin, herbal hops. Man-o-man, this is some nice stuff...

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 If you liquified a pumpkin pie, this would be it ... shiny orange with a creamy whipped topping. Big nutmegy aroma. Very spicy fall-flavored brew, maybe good with a Thanksgiving feast, Id think, but almost with a funkiness to it.

Nice pumpkin pie aroma. Pours a nice copper color, but has very poor head retention. Mouthfeel is a little light for a beer with Imperial in the name. A little heavy on the nutmeg, but that may just be personal preference.
