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!

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.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.
Consumed 1/29/14 (Maybe 4 to 6 months old)

Appearance
Orange / amber with hardly any head. Excellent clarity with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Pumpkin meat and pie crust with hints of allspice and cinnamon.

Taste
Sweet pumpkin meatiness with a lightly toasted pie crust. Bready with notes of pumpkin rind. Nice layers to the maltiness with additional notes of biscuit, Munich malts and sprinkles of candy sugar. Subtle hints of allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth, crisp and semi-dry.

Overall
Tastes great despite being past its prime. Well balanced with a complex maltiness and a nice pumpkin taste. I'll definitely be buying fresh bottles this year.

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.

Pours a brownish-copper with a finger of fluffy beige head that dissipated quickly. There is a subtle note of pumpkin in the nose along with some spice. The pumpkin is also present in the flavor profile along with nutmeg and other pie spices. There is a sweet smooth vanilla note on the finish. This is a very nice seasonal offering from my home state of PA.

I paid $3.50 for the single always love trying new pumpkin ales regardless of already having a favorite (Night Owl)

A - Pours a very deep amber brown hue, clear with a solid 1/2 inch of opaque colored head that doesn't fizz out in seconds so yeah!
S - Smell is balanced no overbearing cinnamon or nutmeg, smells rather sweet with a vanilla dough like sweetness. I taste.
T - Quite good the cinnamon is a bit heavy but it masks the vegital bite of the pumpkin pretty well. Its sweet but not Pumking sweet giving a bit of malty crust like body and vanilla like dough.
M - Medium bodied sort of chewy really digging that its not overall bitter.

Overall it meets my expectations of balanced malt to spices and its doesn't have a super heavy hop profit (malty like it should be) I would have this again if approached with a six pack.
