2.51/5  rDev -24.6%

Appearance: Definitely an amber ale exactly what i'd expect from a pumpkin ale. Some head is obvious upon the pour but little remains after it dissipates. There is a little bit left on the surface of the beer a while after the pour.

Smell: This is no so much a great smelling beer. I smell a little bit of spices, and not so much many pumpkin. The smell really doesn't impress me very much.

Taste: At first all i can think of is alcohol. There is alot of spice that hits me upon tasting this beer, but almost no pumpkin. This is a bit disappointing.

Mouthfeel: A medium thick beer with medium carbonation. Works in its favor because its been disappointing otherwise.

Overall: Appearance its great, but smell was the first drop and the taste didn't help. If those had anchored this beer, then the mouthfeel would have only help but all in all this is below mediocre.

On tap at the Mellow in Greensboro.Poured a light orange shade for a pumpkin ale with a fizzy white head atop.Light sweet pie spice in the nose and that was really all,light and fizzy in the mouth with more spice rather than pumpkin flavors.Iam gonna try the imperial pumpkin that Uinta makes,this gets a failing grade in my opinion.

This is maybe the 8th pumpkin beer I have had this season, Southern Tier and DFH being favorites. I see this getting a lot of bad reviews and I am inclined to disagree.
From the start the pour is standard into a Sam Adam's glass(I'm from Boston, what can I say) with an orange glow and a good lasting head if poured right. Proper lacing covers the glass as you drink. The smell is very authentic pumpkin, the same as when you cut open one to carve, and that's the best your going to get with my stuffy nose. Taste is very different that you might expect. I did not like this the first few mouthfuls, but after drinking the hole thing its a very real, maybe closest to real pumpkin without many spices added as any pumpkin beer this season. The taste is smooth, nothing sticks out to much besides the real pumpkin flavor. I would suggest folks buy this beer and drink it with the understanding that it is going to be different than most but in its own style it is a very good pumpkin beer. Would I buy again, YES. But I would not mix this with the other pumpkin beers seeing this one is very different. Not your typical review yes, but I'm not your typical person.

The label says Pumpkin Ale but I think this should be renamed as a "Spiced Fall Ale." Drinking this makes me feel like I should be outside on an overcast low 50 degree day among wind blow'n leaves. The color is a rich amber with slow dissipating head white head. Mouthfeel is moderate. Faint notes of pumpkin but more essence of general spices.

12 oz bottle, best by 2/9/13. Pours clear ruby-amber with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is mellow pumpkin and spices.

The flavor is vegetal malts with nice spicing - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. There's a bit of a metallic finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a decent pumpkin beer. It's a bit mellow, but the spicing is well done.

12 ounce bottle from DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY. Comes with best before dating (2/06/13)

Pours light and clear pumpkin hued amber. Moderate tan head. Low sheeting, and decent fields of fine lacing.

Next to nothing on the nose, just minor spice.

Lightly flavored, some pumpkin, some spice. But everything is toned down and its a wee bit watery.

Light fall sessioner kinda brew. Would work for a newbie. Would work for a light fall meal. Cheese, chicken, light fare.

Nothing special, nothing terrible. Easy drinkin.

3.53/5  rDev +6%

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, orange-brown in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: light pumpkin spice and sweet bready malt

Taste: breadiness, big clove, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice

Mouthfeel: sweet, high carbonation, medium-light bodied

Overall: An enjoyable bready pumpkin beer, nothing mind blowing but above average. I would get this again and could probably do four in a sitting

Single bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo.

Poured into a goblet. Caramel copper in colour, thin head, bit of lace.

Nose is sweet pumpkin, cinnamon, biscuit.

Pretty decent pumpkin beer, it has to be said. The flavor is unmistakably that of pumpkin, and there is a good bit of cinnamon and spice to it. Nothing memorable, but it does the trick.

I have been searching for the perfect pumpkin ale for over 15 years. This one comes the closest so far. The deep orange color and burnt pumpkin aroma blew me away. Taste is right on with very little spice, sweetness or hops; its all toasted pumpkin. The reality is that pumpkin has a very mild flavor, and this is as close as it gets. Other pumpkin ales seem to try to achieve a pumpkin pie flavor in a beer by adding to much spices. To me this ale strives to complement pumpkin pie instead of mimicry. Even 15 minutes later I can still taste the burnt pumpkin. With the low ABV I could definitely drink a six pack in one session. I'll be looking forward to Punk'n Ale returning next year.

3.85/5  rDev +15.6%

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a slightly hazy copper amber with a thin white head. Can see some visible carbonation in the body. Leaves some nice lacing on the side of the glass.

S: Pleasant aroma reminiscent of a pumpkin pie. Malts are more full than some pumpkin beers I have had and aren't overpowered by spice. Rich aroma.

T: Mild tempered pumpkin brew that is rounded out nicely by a full malt body. Spice and pumpkin are fairly strong but don't necessarily take center stage.

M: Medium to full body with a nice creaminess. Somewhat low carbonation. Isnt too sticky from the sweetness.

Overall I'm a fan of this beer. A little different than the other pumpkin beers on the market but still is true to pumpkin pie roots. Give it a go.
