Had a recent pint at the Iron Hill Lancaster location. It has a rich brown color with lasting tan head and good lacing. Not much pumpkin, which is to be expected, with a moderate amount of spice on the nose. Mouthfeel is a medium bodied with the light spiciness and minimal sweetness… the way I prefer a pumpkin brew. It’s a decent go, but have had better this year.

Serving type: on-tap

(Maple Shade location)

It looks like a pumpkin ale - the right amber (orange-y) color.

Perhaps smells hoppy. Not so much pumpkin pie spices coming through - a little bit of allspice or cinnamon maybe. But there's something peculiar and, dare I say, unique about what I'm getting here. (At least it's not a straight-up nutmeg bomb)

I take a sip - oh, yes, what is that? It's vaguely nutty, mildly plant-like. Leafy? Vine-y? Wait... "Here, taste this," I say to a friend. "What is that?!" A couple more sips, and it occurs to me what it is...

Have you ever smelled the stem of a pumpkin? It has a dried-out, earthy, dead-leafy, and arguably mushroomy thing going on. Pretty unique for what it is, but fairly indicative of a gourd. I ask this because it occurred to me that this beer totally tastes like a pumpkin stem. Dead on.

Interesting? Sure. Could I drink a bunch of these? Hell, no. Not nearly enough balance or presence of malt, nor is it pleasingly "spicy", as in pie-esque. Believe me, I have a soft spot for examples of this style coming across more "pumpkin" than "pumpkin pie", but this one wasn't quite doing it for me.
