JK (5946) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Draught at Wynkoop, October 2012, GABF week. Brown color. Light spice with cinnamon and nutmeg, but it is under-flavored and there is not much there.

notalush (5774) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Tap at Freshcraft - hazy dark copper beer - fairly clean and refreshing for a pumpkin ale - moderate malt profile with a wee bit of tanginess - strong spice profile, but nothing overpowering or overdone - quite a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon spiciness - the pumpkin itself comes through a bit in the finish - understated, which is nice in this style.

Headbanger (3942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2009
Draft Wynkoop 11/4/08-Pours a murky deep amber with a nice covering for a head. Aroma of slight pumpkin. Taste of pumpkin and spices. This medium bodied beer has nice pumpkin flavor but finishes with that same funky aftertaste.

One of the better pumpkin brews Ive tried this season. Very easy drinking, not too spicy. Wish someone would make the Michigan Brewing Company Screamin Pumpkin this year. Thats my fave.

adnielsen (10573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Tasted on tap at Wynkoop Brewery in Denver, Colorado. Color similar to an Amber Ale. Light and highly spiced. Im think its nutmeg and/or pumpkin spice.

onceblind (8189) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Crystal clear burnt copper with a thin off-white head. Nose was thick with pumpkin pie aromas of sweet pumpkin goo, creamy biscuit, nutmeg, and a bit of ginger. The flavor is a little lacking in body and complexity but I like how its not over spiced. Nice clean caramel/earthy pumpkin backbone with some pumpkin-pie-spices, and a lingering nutmeg/ginger finish.

bhensonb (14495) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark amber. Pie spice aroma. Medium body. Seems to have actual pumpkin flavor - mild on spice. So a bit bland, but a refreshing pumpkin version.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 22, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy cloudy reddish brown with a medium white head. Has a very pumpkiny starchy flavor with far less pie spices than most beers of this ilk. Its good, but its not great.
