4.8/5  rDev +28%

Bottle purchased at Arrowine Arlington, VA

A: A nice golden dawn amber hue. White cotton lacing forms around the edges of a light pumpkin amber base.

S: A nice bouquet of cinnamon, nutmeg, and spiced clove. Sweet Pumpkin pie, breaded leavings, brown sugar syrup. Maple cloved malts and pine cone resins.

T: This is one tasty pumpkin brew when it warms up. Never drink pumpkin beers cold!! Slightly chilled above room temperature really brings out the spiced clove and warm cinnamon nicely. The nutmeg closes the palate after the cloves and the sweet pumpkin rind rides the warm cinnamon train all hopped up and ready to play.

M: This is a nice medium carbo hopped clove bomb. Warm and tempting. Medium slick mouthfeel. Full and inviting.

O: This ranks as my number 2 pumpkin beer beating out Schlafly and Weyerbacher. Still no Southern Tier Pumking, but damn close!

This is a great October beer, I could drink this all night on Halloween if I could but watch out for the alcohol level 9.0.

S- Bottle

A- I really don't care what it looks like

Sm- It smells great, you can smell the spices of nutmeg and pumpkin with that hop aroma

T- Well balanced with all the spices and the beer after taste with it. Not to sweet, not to strong just right

M- like any other beer

Overall- I really like this beer and if you are looking for a good October Pumpkin beer try this for yourself

Best Pumpkin Beer I have ever had. Pumpkin taste is so sweat, no over powering, no BS with over spicing. Appearance a light golden brown colour. Even on smell, just pumpkin. Like I said on the spice, only a light taste on the sides of the tongue 3/4 of the way through the sip, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves. I am blown away. This is the way a pumkin beer should taste, the balance in the brew is amazing!

just opened this bottle today and decided to pour it into my snifter glass. First impressions: wonderful orange amber color with the smell of a fresh baked pumpkin pie. the added pumpkin and little spice allow for a wonderful drinking seasonal ale that feels like silk when drinking. the head is a gorgious thick white cap that hangs around especially in an etched bottom glass. i would definately recommend this brew to anyone looking for a fall beer that isn't overly sweet to drink

I am always looking to try a new beer, and this one caught my attention. Although I am at times skeptical of fruity beers, this one was very good.
Appearance: A very nice golden orange with a fairly thin head.
Smell: The first thing i smelt was pumpkin pie and fall. It drew me in and made me more interested in the beer.
Taste: Just as the beer smelled of Pumpkin Pie, it tasted like it too, with a hint of alcohol underneath that.
Drinkability: I could have easily had more of this beer, and will likely make an attempt to find it in stores during the fall, it was well worth it.
