12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Orange color with a one-finger head
S: Pleasant malt, pumpkin and pie-spice
T: Pumpkin and pie spice
M: Light-bodied and smooth
O: Not sure why this is rated so low. All the right flavors are there and it's a good example of the style, it's just a bit light and not quite as complex as some

A: Hazy copper. Sunkist orange. Attractive 1 finger ivory white head. Mousse like and persistent.

S: Rather sweet pumpkin pie. Cinnamon whipped cream, marshmallow, some biscuit, nutmeg. More like a sweet potato casserole in effect rather than a pie with crust.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Clean more than chunky although it does feel a little coarse.

T: I like the pumpkin flavor in this a lot. Spice compliment very well without taking center role. Flaky malts, cinnamon, clove, ginger, golden raisins, and graham cracker. Raw pumpkin flavor seems to stand out as if you had roasted it in your oven.

Had this on 2014-09-28 in Columbia, PA from a bottle

A - Pretty hazy dark orange with a 3/4-finger white head and moderate lace

S - Pumpkin spice and mild biscuit

T - Moderate pumpkin pie spices, graham cracker, moderate sweetness and just a blush of balancing bitterness.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Not cloying at all. Leaning towards the crisp side.

O - A flavorful pumpkin brew on the low ABV side. Good taste without going over-the-top. I like it.

This brew is amazing. It's not pumpkin pie in a bottle like Southern Tier's version, however, it still kicks arse. It has that delicious standard beer flavor with a great almost bitter-sweet pumpkin flavor. It's in my top 5 of favorite pumpkin ales.
