Pours brilliant pumpkin orange. Fluffy white head.

Nutmeg dominates the aroma and is supported by balanced undercurrents of cinnamon, cloves and white pepper.

Slight sweetness up front, flavorful spice midtongue. Again, nutmeg dominates, but clove oil is also there. It also leaves a nice peppery heat tingle on the outer edges of the tongue. Fantastic. Very nice biscuit flavors there as well.

Medium bodied, this is a very nice beer. Solid English ale base, complex and interesting without being overbearing, this is a world class pumpkin ale.

My brother recommended this to me in a sixtel. I am glad he did! This draft beer is very drinkable and leaves no aftertaste. I poured it in a chilled glass and the lines to my beer meister were brand new - a perfect setup for a good fall beer. Can't wait to get home tonight and have another!

This is a truly excellent fall beer. The aroma when first poured reminds one of a freshly baked pumpkin pie. Upon tasting it you will not be disappointed in the aroma, it truly has that pumpkin pie taste. Hints of nutmeg linger on your tongue. The beer is very drinkable, not at all heavy, and refreshing on a crisp fall day.

A- A slightly hazy orange liquid with a small, thin white head. Absolutely no carbonation streams rising to the top.

S- Wow, very aromatic. Lots and lots of pumpkin and cinnamon and other spices. Very unique and interesting, it blows me away.

T- Delicious. Pumpkin and spices and a little bready. This covers all the bases. Wonderful and flavorful. Really impressive.

M- Very creamy and tasty. This makes my mouth water. Excellent.

D- Very well done. A little on the rich side, but this has replaced O'Fallon's as my favorite pumpkin ale.

Appears dark amber with some brown tint to it, 1/8 inch, very thin, white head with very little carbonation bubbles to the top, no lacing. Smells primarily of cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin spices, very much like a pumpkin pie. Taste is of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spices, and some breadiness, with a sweet brown sugar pickup as the beer warms. Very smooth and creamy with little carbonation. Definitely a drinkable pumpkin ale, not too overwhelming in any of the aspects, nicely balanced with all of the flavors. Fantastic for a Fall brew.
