On nitro-tap at SGB on 10/25/08.

A - Hazy two-tone medium copper body fading into a deep orange color with a smooth, creamy beige head that left some lacing that slid down the sides of the glass.

S - Spicy aroma with cinnamon and nutmeg in the forefront, as well as hints of vanilla, cream and all-spice. There's also a bit of bready malt in the form of a sweet graham cracker pie crust.

T - Delicious fresh pumpkin pie flavor with a subtle spiciness including cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Notes of vanilla and whipped cream add sweetness, while hints of fleshy pumpkin meat adds authenticity and depth to the flavor. Malt is crusty and bready with an almost graham cracker crust essence.

M - Medium, softly carbonated body with a smooth, creamy texture thanks to the nitro tap. Mildly spicy on the palate. Bitterness is almost non-existent.

D - Wow! This is serious competition to Pumking. Simply an awesome pumpkin ale, but then again, I wouldn't expect anything less from Selin's Grove. Another beautiful work of art!

2008 batch now available at the brewpub.

Poured a clear coppery amber color with 2 fingers of creamy off-white head. Excellent retention left gorgeous lacing notches down the glass. Smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, brown sugar, and doughy malts. Tastes of brown sugar, nutmeg, allspice, pumpkin, caramel, and pie dough with hints of vanilla and floral hops with a finish of cream and cinnamon. Medium in body and low in carbonation. Silky smooth and creamy, doughy and spicy. A great balance between malt and spice, with all the spices being noticeable and recognizable, but not overpowering of any of the other flavors. Very easy to drink and absolutely delicious, one of my favorite brews from Selins Grove, like pumpkin pie in liquid form, with whipped cream on top. Serving it on nitro is pure genious!

The 2007 version was made in a bigger batch than any previous, so the spices came out a bit differently - much stronger than 2006 - but certainly not in a bad way.

Cinnamon is the primary essence that comes through on the nose. A nitrogen pour gives this ale a creamy head, and a smooth mouthfeel. It's reminiscent of the creaminess of pumpkin pie. It has a beautiful dark copper hue and is a real treat for the season.

A--beautiful muddy orange-copper with a thick solid creamy head.

S--Cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of malty goodness. Smell not unlike a fresh baked pumpkin pie.

T-- Whoa! Like a liquefied Pumpkin Pie complete with the whipped cream topping. A nice spicy aftertaste. This years version is a bit more spicy (on the cinnamon side) than last years...but very good nonetheless.

M--Full bodied, rich and creamy. This is some solid stuff.

D--A beer I crave every year. This is, IMHO, the best pumpkin beer out there. The difference is to have it served on nitro...sheer genius! I always look forward to the day when the Pumpkin gets tapped at "The Grove"!
