Enjoyed a 12 FL. OZ. bottle of this in a trade w/ ipaking67. Poured from the black labeled bottle w/ a Pumpkin smashed into the shape of a strawberry on the front into my 16oz Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale Weizen Glass. Does not have a freshness date on the bottle but DOES have a Mobile Scanning BarCode for "Tasting Notes & Secrets". Very cool!

Aroma- Has good spices around. Not much pumpkin though... Sweet and smells like nutmeg and bit of cinnamon were in the background.

Appearance- Pours a .5 finger head that dies quickly. Has a nice copper body color with an orange tint and great clarity. Leaves no lacing behind.

Flavor- Very sweet with tons of malt and a small bit of spice. Pumpkin comes into the finish with a bit of hop character too! Interesting but not what I'm looking for... Where is the pumpkin!?!?

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and has a bit of warming feel at the finish with spice.

Overall Impression- An average Pumpkin but would like more from Allentown Brew Works! Send them my way! An above average pumpkin that just didn't have enough character for me. Would like to enjoy again but on-tap. Appreciated the flavors but would throw many other Pumpkins into my Pumpkin Recommendation line before this one. Didn't even realize it was a 9% brew until reading the label more closely!

Appears a dense dark amber with a fluffy white head that quickly fizzles away. Spotty bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of roasted pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Perhaps a hint of lemon peel, or grains of paradise.
Taste is of the aromas with a citrusy blast atop the pumpkin and spice. Tastes like key lime juice is threading through the malt.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, spritzy, and sugary but there's a strange lime flavor to me that is sort of distracting. Not sure what that's about. This started great for me and ended strangely with a citrus abundance.

Appearance is a ruby-copper blend with half a finger of head, most of which dissipates quickly. The light smell of pumpkin pie spice graces the nose. There is a bold flavor of pumpkins upfront with a touch of sweetness. The finish has an alcohol sourness that borders on the point of unpleasant. Notwithstanding the finish, this is the boldest version of this yearly offering yet.
