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.

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.

growler fill straight from the brewery in Lancaster, PA

A- a crystal clear amber, with an off white head, nice lacing.

S- A nice mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, with a hint of vanilla, yeasty esters, and pie crust.

T- Follows the nose nicely, but also has a bit of alcohol sweetness. It's oh so close to DFH Punkin', which I love.

M- Medium body, amble carbonation

O- If you like DFH Punkin', get this one. It's oh so close, and much more readily available (at least int his area!) Great stuff.

Look: Poured into a tulip, it's a deep, orange, copper color. Pours with a white fluffy head.

Smell: Sweet pumpkin spices, cinnamon, wheaty malts,

Taste: Very sweet Pumpkin spice flavor upfront and it follows all the way through to the end. You can taste the malts, but pumpkin is very upfront and dominates the taste of this beer. Excellent stuff!

Feel: Medium-full bodied. Medium carbonation. Just right.

Overall: This rivals Southern Tier Pumking. It's not quite as sweet and spicy as Pumpking, but it has more of an authentic pumpkin pie flavor. I didn't expect to like it this much. The steaming pumpkin pie lable is spot on to how this beer tastes. It's excellent!

One of my favorite pumpkin beers. Lots of spice flavor (which is how I like them). Really does have a baked pumpkin pie flavor to me.

12 oz.

Pours a clear orange brown. Off-white lacing for a head.

Smells of baked pumpkin pie with some cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. A little brown sugar sweetness as well.

Flavor is of brown sugar, sweet pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, and buttered toast.

Medium body with a soft carbonation on the tongue.

A pretty tasty pumpkin ale, definitely one of the better ones I've had, though not quite stellar, but more than worth trying and very easy to drink. Hides the strength well. Tends towards the dessert end of pumpkin ales. Definitely worth trying and hopefully something I'll get to try again soon.
