From my Untappd history.

A: Slightly darker orange then I would have expected, but a solid orange color.

S: Getting clove right off the nose, mixed in with some other spices that I couldn't put my finger on at the time.

T: Fruitful pumpkin upfront with an accompaniment of spices rather than a spice bomb.

M: Coats the palate well with great carbonation.

O: A very nice fall sipper that has a good balance of fruit and spices.

From 10/02/12 notes. Had on tap at Ginger Man in NYC side by side with Cisco's Pumpkin Drumkin. I liked this one a little better; little less spicy.

a - Pours a dark amber color with less than one inch of white head and low to moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of pumpkins, gingerbread, nutmeg, spices, cloves, dough, bready malts, toasted malts, and light pepper. Nice gingerbread and pumpkin here and not too much spice.

t - Tastes follows the nose closely, but not quite as strong. Tastes of pumpking, gingerbread, nutmeg, bready malts, light spice, and light toasted malts. A slight step down from the nose.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a pretty good pumpkin ale. Lots of nice gingerbread, nutmeg, and pumpkin in the nose, though it was faded a tiny bit in the taste. Easy to drink; would like to have it again.

picked up a 10oz sample growler of this about 2 hours ago. enjoyed from a greenport harbor pint.

a - brew poured a chestnut brown with a thin cream colored head that was gone in minutes leaving a thin skin of head and a ring around the surface of the beer. lacing was slick and spotty. although the color was dark, i could see through it especially when held to the light.

s - very festive. lots of fall spicing...like a craft store. pot pouri and pumpkins.

t - again very zesty. leafy. some nice hopping on the pumpkin and fall spices. definitely a twist on this one, but more in the realm of big pumpkin and fall spicing. i like it.

m - tingly. medium to light bodied...lots of festive spicing.

o - overall, this is more my speed...after just having a great south bay splashing pumpkin right before, this one is far superior for what i like in a pumpkin. not earth shattering, but a worthwhile beer to taste if you like pumpkin beers that are fall spiced forward. the hopping and leaf adds a unique twist on it too to give it some personality and distinguish it. i'd drink this one again, but as someone who is not gaga for pumpkin beers i couldn't drink it all night, but for the fans of the pumpkin, this is worth a try.
