Had on-tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Poured a brownish orange color with a slight bit of haze to it. Small white head with minimal lacing. Aroma of spices, vanilla, caramel...much like pumpkin pie, actually. Tasted like it smelled, though it was disappointingly one-dimensional. Could have been stronger on spices.
Light to medium in mouthfeel. Not a bad beer, just not great. Drinkable...give it a try once for the experience.

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA
Poured a hazy burnt orange with a small white head that leaves a bit of streaky lacing. Light aroma of pumpkin pie spices and caramel. Taste of nutmeg and cinnamon, light spicy yeast, pithy and a bit vegetal, even though there isn't actually any pumpkin in this one. A little bit bland, but not entirely without its charm. Light-medium mouthfeel, and moderately drinkable.

A - I pours orange to burnt orange in color. I got a skim of beige head.

T - I get some spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, but they taste watered down.
M - Thin and watery
O - I like a lot of pumpkin beers. This doesn't rate up there with my favorites.

a - pours a hazy orange color with a few chunks of yeast sediment in it. forms a finger of off white head that calms quickly to a thin film. very little lacing.
s - all spice, nothing else.
t - unfortunately, flavor is dominated by spice. very little malt character coming through though there is a bit of bitterness in the finish.
m - thin with far too much carbonation.
o - well, at least it's appropriately named. not awful, but not for me. certainly won't be returning to this one.

Appearance is murky brown and orange, with nice lacing.
Nose has tons of cinnamon and spice, with cooked apples--very aromatic.
Taste is spicy, but not overwhelming. Has apple and brown sugar, and possibly a hint of pumpkin, but is much more of a spice beer than a pumpkin beer. Flavor dulls to just spice about midway through.
Mouthfeel is sort-of watery, with smooth carbonation and a nice spice bite.
Overall, not much of a pumpkin beer, but is well-spiced.

12 ounce bottle, no bottle date but most likely from this season. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a fairly dense 1-2 fingers of off white head with nice retention that reduces to a thin lacing cap. Aromas of big cinnamon, clove, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, caramel, and a bit of citrus. Decent aromas here, but there seems to be an odd medicinal aroma as well. Taste of big spiciness, clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon up front; with some caramel and sweetness near the finish. Not much bitterness on the finish; but notes of big spices, pepper, clove, and cinnamon linger on the finish. Medium bodied with fairly high carbonation; with a bit of a creamy moutfeel and smooth drinkability despite the carbonation level. No alcohol noticed other than a slight warming after the finish. Overall this is actually quite good for a spiced ale. Good balance of spices and sweetness, and I definitely enjoyed this.

Poured into a pint glass.
A: Hazy amber with a few small particles, lots of bubbles, and a one-finger, off-white, foamy head that lasted a couple of minutes. Okay lacing.
S: Cinnamon and nutmeg up front. Sweet malt.
T: Moderate sweetness and light hop bitterness. Spicy and kind of tart.
M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Kind of smooth and slightly dry.
O: Average spiced ale. Good, but not great.

A: A copper orange color with a slight red tint. No head on this beer at all.
S: cinnamon and nutmeg with a slight touch of pumpkin.
T: Very spicy. Loads of cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice. Has a slight pumpkin aftertaste. Very reminiscent of a fall day.
M: Good amount of carbonation with a medium body. Smooth and creamy.
O: One of the better pumpkin beers I believe. Has the right amount of spice and does not taste like an over-sweet desert beer.
