Tastes like liquid pumpkin pie, nice pumpkin spice taste and smell. I will say I'm very bias towards pumpkin beers.

Aroma is cinnamon, spices and slightly perfumed. The flavor is cinnamon, spices, a hint of pumpkin, malts and a mildly tart finish.

Toasty and rather malty on the nose. The pumpkin is a nice pumpkin bread with some balanced spice of cinnamon and nutmeg.

The front gives the perception of watery pumpkin and a tinge of spice. It ends in bitterness and tastes of black licorice and clove, two of my least favorite flavors.

For something that started so aromatic this did not transfer in taste.

HornyCopia Pumpkin Ale has a very thick, foamy, crackling off-white head, a yellow-gold-orange appearance, with bubble streams and powdery sediment evident throughout. Lacing is light and splotchy. The aroma is strong on spices (white pepper & cinammon), with underlying pumpkin pulp and malt. Taste is similar, with a noted peppery aspect. Mouthfeel is medium, and HornyCopia finishes crisp and refreshing, with the alcohol not present.

Appearance: A hazy amber body is crowned by a huge, dense off-white head, with astonishing retention. Belgian-style lacing adorns the glass walls. The carbonation is sligh, and slow-rising.

Aroma: Nutmeg and cinnamon are prominent in the aroma, as well as roasted pumpkin.

Taste: The taste begins with roasted malt and a surge of pumpkin spices. Cinnamon and nutmeg are quite notable throughout the taste. As the taste -advances, the spices rise a bit, providing a contrast to the solid malt backbone. Finishes with a lingering wave of pumpkin pie spices and roasted malt.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, quite full and pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A very nice, quite drinkable, very pleasant example.

Presentation: Packaged in a classic brown glass long neck bottle, with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Nice Color a little hazy but not bad. Not the best head but ok.
The smell is not very strong little allspice and a hint of a burnt pumpkin pie.
Taste Front just a nice malty beer. In the middle get a good pumpkin, allspice, and a little cinnamon. The back side is like an after taste of a pumpkin pie.
All in all a good beer not the best but nowhere near the worst pumpkin beer I've had. Top 3 of the ones I've had.
