Wow. What a great way to start a fall beer session. This exceeds my expectations.

It pours a great light brown color. Clear, with just a bit of head turning to a light fizz. The aroma is first rate. Not too pumpkin pie (like a Pumpking, though I love those), yet just enough real pumpkin smell.

The taste similarly is real. Real ale (brown?) and real pumpkin, with other stuff, but not too much spice. A nice complex blend. A great refreshment.

The aftertaste is very pleasant. Just a little bite. No booze. This is a very good pumpkin ale. The bottle was a lot cooler than the photo - solid orange.

Pours a dark brown, light when held up to the light with an orangiah hue to it. A decent head with little retention and lacing.

Smell is mostly of pumpkin, clove and nutmeg. Light vanilla notes. Lacking on the cinnamon kick and spice, as most pumpkin ales seem to. Or maybe that's just me.

Same comes through in the taste. Maybe I'm just a cinnamon lover. But it needs that extra spice. Overall very smooth and enjoyable, definitely worth a shot.

And the sweet orange bottle is a nice souvenir.

This ale is quite a delicious pumpkin ale. It pours like a slice of pumpkin goodness deep orange and clear with a half inch of head. The aroma brings all the warmth of fall. The spices come through marvelously in the smell. The taste begins with the sweet flavor of the pumpkin then moves to all those wonderful notes of spice. The mouthfell is exactly what a pumpkin ale, the flavor of the pumpkin as well as the spices linger for a appropriate amount of time. If you come across this regardless of the venue, give it a taste.

Solid pumpkin ale. Pours dark orange from draft with little head that dissipated quickly. Cloudy. Smells of spices with a hint of cloves. Tastes like pumpkin, vanilla, all spice and cloves with a little nutmeg. Very light and smooth in the mouth. Clean finish. No bitterness. Better than Dogfish Head.just behind Schlafly and Alewerks. Excellent.
