Pours to a hazy dark amber body with a white head and some nice airy lacing. The aroma has some nutmeg, mace, and a twangy sour malt component. The flavor is earthy and pumpkin laden malts with some nutmeg and cinnamon. Twangy. I could not find the printed on bottle date like they say is there. Dusty and oily texture.

Bottle. The pour was a medium hazy copper with a large (2-3 Finger) white rocky head that had great retention and some really good lacing that was left hanging on the glass throughout.
The aroma was of a light toasted malt and a mildly sweet doughy yeast with notes of nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and of course pumpkin.
The taste was some what sweet and malty with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg from the beginning and had a mild bitterness with a hint of pumpkin and a little bite from the allspice at the end. The flavor lingered for a nice long while allowing for the taste of the spices to settle nicely on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light on body and watery in texture and had a kind of medicine feel to it with a medium carbonation.
Overall a mild tasting Pumpkin Ale with a slight bitter bite of spices that was left lingering well after the swallow. It was a decent brew which fits with the style rather nicely.

Lighter amber with no head. Nutmeg spice in nose. Seasonal spice in flavor: cinnamon, nutmeg with some toasted malt. Finishes with a dry hop flavor. Thinner palate. Spicing is lighter which is preferred in these seasonal brews. At Last Chance at Hunter Mt. drunkenpolack (322) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Will Steven’s Pumpkin Ale pours a deep clear copper color with minimal head and no lacing. The aroma is defintely on the spicy side with small amounts of pumpkin coming through. Cinnamon, cloves, and brown sugar are the main aromas.
Same really goes for the taste. Spices dominate. Cinnamon came to mind at first, followed by the cloves and brown sugar. The pumpkin is there but is hiding most of the time. Up front are the spices and in the end the spices linger on the tongue.
The mouthfeel is very clean, medium bodied, and goes down easy. This is not a pumpkin ale to write home about but I’m glad I got to try it. There is just so much better out there. sonnycheeba (6342) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2012

Cinnamon aroma, nice orange color, spice is overcome by the hop punch. Hops hangs on the palate, limited maltiness. Ontbeertaster (3208) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013

To steal a line from the previous review, it’s a "pumpkin" ale for people who really don’t like pumpkin ale. It’s a decent enough beer but the spices are quite subtle and the pumpkin almost missing. Palidor19 (3193) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Its malty with many Autumn spices of pumpkin, cloves and cinnamon. quite a nice beer.
