- ale brewed with pumpkin and spices.

A: Deep burgundy-brown exit from the bottle. The head needs alot of help to form, walnut colored, thin, skimy, and refuses to hold much. Lacing is non-evident.

S: Lightly toasted pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, pie crust and some dusting of nutmeg. Average strength.

T: Flavor is alcohol forward, at 6.5%. Warming alcohol laced pumpkin, toasted bread, molasses, cinnamon spicing with a caramelized sweetness. Strong cloves, spicy with a hint of warm caramel-apple alcohol finish.

M: syrupy, pretty full bodied, spicy alcohol content, cinnamon warmth and a good rate of carbonation factor.

O: Overall some natural pumpkin content, some spice, and a heaping of alcohol perfect for that chilly october evening camping around the fire pit. Decent balance, not overly spiced, a good thing, more naturally balanced for ease of consumption, with exception of noticeable alcohol which at times seems to distract from the pumpkin element. Really like the pumpkin flavor and how things are more natural and in harmony then forced spicing.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a dark amber hue withy so finger frothy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a full earthy caramel with a trace of pumpkin spice.

The taste was likewise malt driven, with some burnt caramel and a slight allspice.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a weak attempt at a pumpkin ale. Ubu with some extras thrown in. I think we deserve a bit more imagination.

A: The beer is hazy dark amber orange in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high tan colored head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a short head covering the surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of pumpkin pie spices are present in the nose—allspice and ginger seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste has initial flavors of allspice and ginger and is followed by notes of pumpkins and cinnamon; the allspice and ginger creep back in again towards the finish. No sweetness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a lot spicier compared to other pumpkin ales so this might be a nice selection of you're looking for a fall beer and don't want something that's very sweet or has lots of pumpkin flavors.

Pours just as the label says a deep garnet color with a thinner off white head atop,aromas of deep pumpkin pie spice,nutmeg and cardamom stand out most,seems fuller than a few other pumpkin ales I have tried in the past weeks.a little sharp and it's a little lighter in the mouth.I really liked the spiced but not overly sweet flavors of the beer as a matter of fact it's pretty dry in the finish,cardamom stands out most on the palate.Not bad,one of the better pumpkin ales I have had this season so far.
