From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #70 (November 2012):

Pumpkin Ales should have some umph to them right? Evolution gets it with this somewhat brawny brew. Spicing is very well balanced, just enough pumpkin character to round it out. A sure thing if this is the style you are craving and it will definitely stand up as something different and fun to you novice beer drinking friends.

STYLE: Pumpkin Ale
ABV: 6.3%
AVAILABILITY: Fall Seasonal

LOOK: Clear brassy color, solid looking head

SMELL: Cooked pumpkin meat, pie spice, faint ginger, cloves, cake batter, bready

TASTE: Deep smoothness, creamy medium bodied, spicy start, clove, mace, nutmeg, ginger, caramelized pumpkin, mild alcohol warmth, lingering spice, modest hopping, earthy, grassy, slightly dry finish

A sweeter more spice pumpkin ale. I prefer less spice.

Traditional pumpkin beer spices cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and sweet malt. Smells great, nothing overbearing. Taste follows suit but in a much subtler fashion. Nice pumpkin pie spices, malty sweetness and subtle earthy spicy hop character on the finish.

A nice take on a Pumpkin Ale. Very subtle all around, and sometimes that a great thing for this style.
