Draft to taster downstairs at the brewpub. Looks good; a fairly transparent paler caramelish orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of pumpkin, related spices, and ale yeast; could be more balanced though. Tastes like it smells with a fairly smooth and pleasant medium to medium full-bodied semi-dry mouthfeel. A solid pumpkin ale. kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Smells like squash more than pumpkin, but there?s a decent pumpkin flavor. Spice mixture is a little nutmeg heavy. Otherwise, the clear light brown ale is respectable. Msgriffi (48) - - SEP 19, 2015
Nice pumpkin ale. Some subtle spice, but a lot of it, and a dry hop finish round out this tinted golden Amber. A great beer for those who do not want liquid pumpkin pie.

Draft at Wicked Weed. Poured a golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma was light hop notes, touch of pumpkin, but lacking in pumpkin spices. Not a problem at all, just pointing it out. Flavor was light pumpkin gourd notes, light bitterness. ChainGangGuy (4932) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Appearance: A picturesque pumpkin ale, with its orange-gold hue and a slim white cap of froth.

Smell: Anticipated notes smelling of bready, toasted maltiness, oven-cooked pumpkin meat dosed with just the right amount of sugar and spice.
Taste: Bready, toasty malts sweetened with a light touch of toasted sugars atop the pumpkin. Some nice accents of vanilla, spicy cinnamon and earthy grated nutmeg. Light hops impart a light bitterness. All flavors slowly recede on the drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It doesn’t break new ground, but it hits all the right notes for a good, solid pumpkin ale.
I've had a few Pumpkin ales. This one is a solid entry into the market. Try it your won't be disappointed.
