Like pumpkin pie in a bottle...we add 136 pounds of real pumpkin to the three-barley mash and then season the finished beer with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.

I actually found this decent, but I'm not really a big fan of pumpkin beers so I appreciated it being more mellow.

I served from a bottle into a regular pint glass. Appearance was coppery, maybe a little hazy. Light scent of pumpkin - taste is not overwhelmingly pumpkin, which I appreciated. This beer is definitely not as spicy as other pumpkin beers on the market.
Not too much carbonation - overall a decent choice if you're looking for a fall inspired drink.

Poured from standard 12oz bottle. Was medium to medium dark copper in color with a slightly off-white head, but was a very small head. Seemed quite carbonated. Had a slight pumpkin smell but not much at all. The pumpkin didn't really come through in the taste. It was way too subtle and seemed watered down. Just an average or slightly below average pumpkin beer.

Poured into a standard pint glass.

The beer is a very murky, hazy dull orange. A creamy off-white head recedes to a breath of bubbles on top with thick creamy lacing that slowly fades away.

The beer smells really spicy with cinnamon and brown sugar coming to mind. Underneath the spices there's a good hearty aroma of pumpkin pie.

The beer tastes spicy and bright, almost tangy at first. Like the aroma, I get a lot of brown sugar and cinnamon that lingers on the palate. Nutmeg and clove are also in here.

A nice creamy mouthfeel with a bright carbonated finish.

Overall, about what I'd expect for a pumpkin beer. The aroma is really good, probably one of the best traits of this brew.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 6/10/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of fresh pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove, brown sugar, bread, and herbal. Damn nice aromas with good strength and balance; very authentic. Taste of pumpkin, biscuit, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove, brown sugar, caramel, and herbal. Lingering notes of caramel, biscuit, spices, and brown sugar on the finish for a bit. Good robustness of flavor with decent balance; spices are not overdone at all. Minimal cloying sweet flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a really good pumpkin ale. Taste did not live up to the aromas; but it was well balanced and very drinkable. Definitely enjoyed this, and it is a nice example of the style.
