Poured into a tulip glass. A very clear amber/orange color with a thick off-white head that laces the glass. A nice toasted malt and pumpkin aroma. There is a little bit of nutmeg, but mostly a pumpkin scent.

The spices appear more in the flavor. The pumpkin flavor hits right up front with the nutmeg and allspice flavors. The beer is sweet and has a touch of alcohol flavor. The feel is medium-heavy and a bit syrupy. There are nice flavors, but the finish might be a touch too sweet for my tastes. I would like it more if it were a bit drier. That being said, this is one of the better pumpkin ales out there.

This is the best pumpkin ale I've tasted. Saranac was the best until I tasted this. Don't be so fussy. I like the higher alc content as it makes it taste better. If you enjoy it, just say so. Too many IPA'S and stouts are dominating categories. What's a good ale anymore? Molson Golden used to be an ale and now it's just a beer. Ballantine IPA from Cranston, Rhode Island used to be the best. Yes, Pliny the Elder is truly exceptional but the owners are people who will only allow Pliny the Younger to be West Coast.
They are nice people who responded to Questions but when you limit a brew to a specific area, no one can queston how good it is unless you go there. Beer is subjective. Guess what? Iron City Amber from Pittsburgh is pretty good!
