Chilled growler into a glass. Shared by the late chswimmer, who received them courtesy of HonusWagner. Thanks Ted and Mike.

Consumed as part of a pumpkin beer lineup. From notes.

A: Pours a cloudy amber body with at most a half pinky of off-white head.

S: It's... almost totally lacking in aroma. The main thing I pick up is a floral, soapy note. Weird.

T: It has a good flavor for the most part. It's sweeter than some of the other pumpkin beers on the table, with less emphasis on spice. More brown sugar and caramel than nutmeg and cinnamon, though those are also there.

M: A very well hidden 9%. It's not syrupy, but it is on the sweeter end of the spectrum against the others I've tried.

D: It's good, but in the tasting it was lower-end, and out of what I've tried in the style, it's near the middle. I'd skip it.

Arrives a dark amber/ light brown color. Clear and brigjt with a small, off-white head that dissipates to a ring rather quickly. Some light, scattered lacing.
Smell is faint with notes of malt, root beer and naught else.
Taste is malty with some slight pumpkin and hop notes as well as the same root beer-like spices. Balance is good but lacking in depth and complexity.
Full body, lightish effervescence. Slighty drying finish with a hatsh, almost peppery burn on the tip of the tongue. Nutmeg perhaps? Not up to the usual standards of CCB.

Pours an orange-amber with a off-white head that has decent retention.

Aroma: Pumpkin nose with malt taking a background role. Hints of spicing; certainly not overdone.

Promising aroma is not followed by good taste. There is a nice bit of pumpkin/squash flavor, but it is surrounded by a rather unpleasant earthy gourd flavor.

Medium body with moderate carbonation

wow, big and boozy pumpkin beer. Strong nutmeg & cinnamon notes. Slightly thin tasting, so sweet no real character develops. Big time boozy aftertaste, reminds me of a fat Tuesday drink that tastes like a dessert and then you swallow and say 'damn, there was a ton of alcohol in that thing'. Glad I tried it, wouldn't seek out again.

Poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: Orange/Caramel in color, pours a slight white head, has some lacing.

Smell: Nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, vanilla and pumpkin, just as it promises.

Taste: Not quite as strong as the aroma, but definitely taste nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, vanilla and pumpkin.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium bodied, good carbonation, fairly dry, smooth.

Overall: A good pumpkin beer. A bit light on the spices and lighter in body than I prefer in a pumpkin beer. Very smooth, and very drinkable.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for acquiring and sharing this

Consumed 10/13/12

Appearance: Somewhere between dark amber deep orange - nice, off-white head - keeps a little cap and a nice ring, leaves some spots of lacing

Smell: Absurdly aromatic, it smells like walking into a candle store - tons and tons of spice, exploding with crazy amounts of cinnamon, ginger, and allspice - some pumpkin here, but it's mostly covered in the spice rack - some sugary biscuits and booze underneath

Taste:So much pumpkin pie spice - not just a large helping of premixed pumpkin pie spice, though, the cinnamon and ginger taste oddly fresh and exotic - interesting, but a bit over the top - caramel and some pale malts - a solid base - some pumpkin in the background, but everything is really overpowered by the spices - overly sweet, too

Mouthfeel: Medium body, thin compared to some other Cigar City beers (that require a spoon to eat), smooth, nicely carbonated, spices are a bit cloying

Overall: Great, if you're looking for a spice potion

So spicy. This beer seems to treat pumpkin pie spices like DIPAs treat hops; the more the merrier. I'm not sure if I really enjoy this. It's good, but it has some issues.

Thanks to BeerGod1 for the bottle. Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Deep burnt orange. Head is white and leaves a small cap that's bubbly and tight. Slight chill haze. Some vague notions of lacing, but it might be imagined.

Smell: Super pumpkin pie levels of sweetness. Cinnamon, nutmeg and some hint of clove and allspice. Sweet bready malts. Some caramel malt undertones. Some sweet caramel candy flavors as well. Syrupy pumpkin flesh. Squashy goodness buried deep. The vegetable is earthy and squashy like it should be. Big sweetness. Very much like pie, including the bready, buttery crust.

Taste: Cinnamon and sugar toast if you made it out of pumpkin bread. Bready malts. Caramel sweetness. Huge hit of roasted malts. Pumpkin, squashy and real coupled with sweet canned pumpkin. Building cinnamon spiciness pushes through as the beer warms. Lots of clove, allspice, nutmeg. Cinnamon dominates. Big pie sweetness. Buttery crust. Graham crackers. Backing overall spiciness. Cooked malts. Deeply caramelized. Spiced decadence.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation on an almost full, slightly syrupy body. Dry and sweet at the same time. Body drops as the beer warms and thins out drastically.

Overall: Pumpkin steroids.

This isn't a pumpkin so much as it is concentrated essence of pumpkin pie. So much spice and chewy malt the pumpkin loses out. If the spices dialed down a touch, this would be fantastic.

Thanks to my cousin from Tampa for getting me this. Reviewed from notes on Christmas Eve.

A- Dark brown body poured into a pint glass with some red around the edges. Creamy off white head forms and a nice ring does too. Decent cap retention and a few spots of lace here and there.

S- Pumpkin, nutmeg and a bit of cinnamon. Dark fruit and raisin as well as some toasted brown malts. Medium spice level.

T- More like a pie here with a sweet, somewhat dessert creamy feel. Spice like nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger at a moderate level. Dark fruit is slightly medicinal. Pumpkin, toasted malts and brown sugar hints round it all out.

MF- Creamy and fairly thick body. Carbonation has a silky feel and is on the lower-medium level. A bit of alcohol warmth.

Solid for a higher ABV pumpkin ale. Not too spicy and a pretty good balance.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. Thanks to Dunt for bringing this over.

Appearance: This has a dark amber color, cloudy, with a frothy white head.

Smell: Pumpkin and spice really dominate the aroma. Some other spices in the periphery.

Taste: Some light caramel malt lead into the main attraction - strong, spiced pumpkins. Cinnamon and nutmeg are the most dominant.

Mouthfeel: This only has a medium body despite the high ABV. There is what seems to be an off-feel to it, maybe some pumpkin residue. The finish is a little bit grainy and my mouth feels coated in plastic after my glass is done.

Overall: There was something about this beer that struck me as off. The feel was a little bit light, and there is some pumpkin residue flavor that is not appealing

bottled: 20AUG11

A: pours an autumnal orange with really no head production and only some sheeted off-white bubbles. Hazy with spotty lace.

S: cloves, nutmeg, yams, sweet

T: Sweet malts with plenty of spices. Just what you would expect. Nothing really special here, I guess it's what people are after in a pumpkin.

M: Medium body with slight carbonation, it is nice with a slightly dry finish.

O: Well, this taste pretty much like pumking to me. I can tell it's high quality, but I'm still not on board pumpkin beer should be anything but a stout.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a snifter glass.

A: Brownish, orangish amber, hazy, with a one-finger off-white head that fairly quickly dissipates into a ring. Decent lacing. Nice looking beer.

S: Pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, caramel malts. Unfortunately, I'm also getting a a little dry cardboard aroma here too.

T: Flavor follows the nose, which is pleasant at first - pumpkin, spiciness, nice round flavors. But, the flat cardboard flavor is there again in the finish.

M: Medium mouthfeel, nice carbonation, no alcohol presence to speak of. This is a sweeter brew but with a relatively dry hang.

O: This one is overall OK, but I deducted significant points for the off flavor. The only think I know to cause this would be oxidization, but I know that it's fresh, and one wouldn't think there would be high-temperature exposure between the brewery & the tasting room, as they're literally connected. Either way, this had promise but didn't deliver. I did buy a bottle, so if it is significantly different I will update this review.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours with a healthy head of off white foam on top of a hazy, amber brown body. The head settles at a moderate lace and leaves decent lace on the glass,

S - Brown, malty notes of toffee with lots of spices, including allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove.

T - Bready malt notes up front with some brown sugar. A bit of cinnamon and allspice in the middle. Finishes with clove, more dark sugar, and lightly herbal hops.

M - Medium thick body, moderately low carbonation, and a somewhat sweet finish.

D - Not bad, but I don't think it lives up to what some have said about it. Despite CCs penchant for high end spices, the pie character here is kind of bland and flabby with a malt character that only serves to reinforce that impression. I had this beer when it first came out and remember it being less sweet and spicy with more hops in the balance, but it has been so long that I might be misremembering it at this point.

Thanks to Dunt for the pour.

Pours out an amber orange pumpkin color with adequate foam.

Nose smells like fall, almost like a pumpkin pie. Pumpkin up front blended with cloves and a lot of sweetness.

Taste follows the nose - it's a pretty sweet beer up front. The pumpkin and spices are noticable, and it finishes with a bit of grainy, toasted, bready malt. Somehow - the more I sipped this - the less I appreciated the whole amalgamation. I did enjoy the pour, but think that if I had more than 5 or so ounces I'd have a hard time finishing it.

Feel is decent, well carbed, medium bodied, but a bit dry.

Overall, a bit dissapointing. I was hoping this would rival pumking or TREAT, but it doesn't quite make it there.

The aroma is very spicy with pumpkin, cardboard, and caramel malt. The appearance is amber with an average head. The taste is a little like the aroma but has an astringent bitterness but it is definitely a pumpkin. The mouth feel is average. Overall I like this beer but I want more pumpkin and less bitter.

This beer got better as I drank it. It has a vanilla taste to it but the vanilla got stronger later on. It is defiantly a better tasting beer than Schlafly but it is not as good as Pumpking to me. I would say that Good Gourd is my top 5 pumpkin beers to date. This beer was hard to find. I ordered it from Letspour.com online since the beer is from Fla.

I'm glad pumpkin beer season is coming to an end. I keep buying them but I've never found one that stands out above the rest.

A: Golden caramel in color with a small white head.
S: Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and some sweetness.
T: Cinnamon and cloves mainly but it has a fresh gourd taste to it. If you have ever broken a gourd in half and smelled it thats exactly how this one finishes. Sort of odd after taste.

Drinks a little bit bigger than your typical pumpkin ale. Decent beer but nothing that really sets it apart from the others.

Got this bottle from Leuken's. Served in a Pumking goblet.

Pours a moderate orange-copper with a good off-white head. Decent retention and some spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carried a lot of squash and pumpkin with a bit of cinnamon and miscellaneous spice in the background. The flavor didn't have quite as much spice and really focused on the squash element. Not too sweet, which was nice. Chewy medium body with moderate carbonation and a bit of spice zest in the finish. Good brew.

3.81/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into snifter glass.

Appearance: color was of burnt orange and toffee. Minimal head retention.

Smell: Picked up some pie crust, some nutmeg, and white chocolate. It smelled absolutely delicious. Its spices are there (nutmeg, cloves, allspice) but it does not attack you. The aroma is simple, not complex. Very satisfying.

Taste: This beer is pretty intense. It starts out fantastic; I tasted pumpkin pie - most notable was the pie crust, its had that nice biscuity buttered crust flavor. There was also that subtle burnt sweetness you get in baked goods, like toasted or melted brown sugar. As the beer start to warm up, the spices and other flavors I cannot describe became more prominent. The crust became harder to pick up and the spices became a bit overwhelming. A single glass of this is plenty. It was quite sweet, no bitterness. The crust, sugar and the spices were the most prominent aspect of this beer and like other pumpkin beers I have tried, I am missing the flavors of pumpkin.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied mouthfeel. With the intense flavors of this beer, it's hard to cover all the bases of the beer.

Overall: this is something I'd like to share with someone. Not something to drink yourself. It holds well over night. I opened it the first night, did not finish it. Put a wine cork in, reopened it the next day and it tasted fine.

32oz growler courtesy of tpd975. Thanks Greg! Served in a pint glass, and shared at the Flossmoor Beelzebeer release.

A - Pours with two fingers of light orange foam that slowly dissipates to a thick, chunky cap, leaving behind glass-coating lace. Slightly hazed pumpkin orange color. Impressive considering the ABV, and reference for the "style".

S - Traditional pumpkin spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. as well as some authentic pumpkin aroma. The nose is somewhat understated, but it hides the 9% incredibly well without being overbearingly sweet.

T - Some pumpkin pie complete with the sweet pie crust. Light spicing is appreciated, as is actual pumpkin flavor. Again, the alcohol is well-hidden, but there's just something a bit muted and drab about this beer.

M - Medium creamy body, medium-low carbonation, no alcohol heat.

D - Considering my many other experiences with Cigar City, this is a surprisingly subtle and understated brew. It was quite enjoyable, but it was quickly forgotten after moving on to the next few brews. I heard the test batch was quite different, but I gotta review the beer I try! In any case, it's definitely one of the better pumpkin beer offerings, but I think I prefer Pumking a little bit (and Flossmoor's extinct Big Black Pumpkin, of course).

A - pours a nice orange color without too much of a head

S - nose is a little weak, however there is some light spice and subtle pumpkin

T - starts off with sweet pumpkin flavor with a bit of caramel malts. These fade to a light spice flavor, predominantly cinnamon and all spice. This strikes a nice balance between the pumpkin flavor and the spice.

M - medium body that leaves a dry finish from the spices

D - pretty solid pumpkin ale here. As mentioned, good flavor profile but a little lighter on the nose and palate than I would have hoped.

Poured a hazy orange color with a thick off white almost brown colored heading. Retention is good but does settle to a thin edging. Decent lacing a few globs here and there.

To have this in sequence with Pumking is unfair as the nose just doesn't really add up to the Southern Tier offering. Nice allspice aroma with a touch of nutmeg.

Taste however is better than the offering of Southern Tier not bad at all. Nice caramel maltiness going on with a good deal of cinnamon,allspice and nutmeg.

Medium bodied and fairly balanced. Easily drinkable and not boozy at all coming in at 9%.

reviewed from notes:

a- orange brown hazy body with some light penetration. thin rim of foam and whispy head w/ some lacing (served into pokal in this review, but head tends to vary a lot since i've had this a few times)

s- nutmeg cinnamon pumpkin and malty yeast. reminds me of a great spiced pumpkin loaf. some alcohol and sweetness also.

t- follows nose but even fuller, much more pumpkin with enough pie spices to season the beer without overwhelming with any one spice. hop character blends well to balance the sweet bready malt body in the finish.

M- comes on crisp with good carbonation, moves to a medium-full body with soft feel. finishes crisp and relatively dry with some alcohol in the end. no cloying spice in the finish.

i still have a bottle of this that i plan on sharing for thanksgiving. high alcohol makes it good to share but still not too high that finishing most of the bottle (for me) wouldn't be hard either. another great ccb brew.

On tap at the Blind Tiger 9/15

Pours a orangy brown color with a minimal egg-shell colored head that quickly disipates into a barely there cap. Typical for imperial pumpkins.

The aroma is of a solid bready malt. The pumpkin spices are light, with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice making their presence known. There is also an odd spice that I wasn't able to put my finger on.

While the aroma was light, the pumpkin spice flavor was big. Big nutmeg and clove presence with cinnamon and nutmeg. There seemed to be some vanilla as well. Again there was a sweet spice that I couldn't quite get. There was an earthy quality to the brew and it finished with a tea like bitterness.

The feel was light to moderate with prickly carbonation. Sweet upfront but finishes lightly bitter and dry.

A good pumpkin ale, not great but surely didn't disappoint.

750ml bottle

A- Poured into a Cigar City tulip glass. Pours a deep orangish amber color with an off-white head.

S- The nose is classic pumpkin ale aroma with pumpkin and spices. 

T- The taste is really good. Not as sweet as some pumpkin ales, this one is a little more dry. The spices come out up front with some warmth from the alcohol. There is also a mile level of bitterness in the finish from some hops.

M- The mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, Good Gourd is a really tasty pumpkin ale. I would put it in the upper tier of pumpkin beers. Recommended!
