Pours a clear dark amber with white head. Aroma is similar to freshly baked pumpkin pie. Taste is sweet pumpkin pie with crust. Superb. Extremely smooth and delicious. Will be looking for this in quantity. (206 characters)

Looks pretty clear caramel amber deep dark roasted notes as well with a cream khaki tan head forms nice and thick even speckled lacing is left behind.

Aroma rich pumpkin spice, caramel malts, pumpkin flesh a bit of crust notes…really works well together.

Flavor a spicy mix of booze and all spice, cinnamon, and nutmeg that all overshadow the pumpkin additions. That harsh perfume like character is out of balance here and makes it much more difficult to enjoy than some of the better versions that have more balance.

Mouthfeel is a bit harsh heavy spice notes really kill the palate and basically fatigue sets in after a few different versions of this same pumpkin ale style the good wants stand out and the bad and the average kind of run together.

Overall impression is it is drinkable but not stand out amongst the group of pumpkin ales I’ve had this year. (872 characters)

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Moderate hand. Dated 21414.

A: 4.0 Rich amber-orange with good clarity. 1 finger of off-white head. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: 4.25 Sweet pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg. Smells very much like pumpkin pie filling. Vanilla. Brown sugar.

T: 3.75 Hop bitterness intermingle with pumpkin pie. Interestingly, there is not much of a progression with a beginning/middle/end, but more of an on/off. That being said, the malt notes do somewhat build and taper off. Semi-dry finish. Surprisingly clean. Slight alcohol presence. A bit more bitterness than expected.

M: 4.0 Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Decent creaminess that is well suited to the flavor profile.

O: 3.9 Pretty nice pumpkin ale. The spices are there and there is a nice amount of actual pumpkin flavor as well. Good body. Perhaps slightly over-hopped and the taste doesn't quite live up to the promise of the nose, but overall it is well above average in the typically under-performing pumpkin ale classification.

Prost! (1,089 characters)

On draft at the brewery... again. Deep amber color, full tan head, right level of spice, with vegetative hop notes and caramel on the nose, which works great for a pumpkin brew. Medium bodied, and less spice on the palate than I expected. On the finish- great spice and vanilla flavor. As I said, just a really excellent, well-made autumn brew and great representation of the pumpkin style from Lancaster Brewing. (413 characters)
