Ahh Painted Ladies season! Had this two years ago and loved it, then last year it did not show up in my market.... I guess when you are only 2 hours from a brewery you can not expect to get there basic seasonals....

Pours a light amberish orange color nice lacing. Half finger of off white head. Frankly it is one of the most "glowing" beers I have ever seen, really good looking stuff.

Smell is pumpkin pie, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, nutmeg, light cracker like malt.

Taste is more of the same, allspice, ginger, nutmeg, light malt presence... My one gripe is that they went way overboard on the cinnamon. It is almost like it could get caught in your throat and make you cough. finishes spicy.

Mouthfeel is medium full, you can tell the pumpkin really amped up the body in this one, really coating and nice. Lowish carbonation, works nice with the style.

This remains a top Pumpkin beer for me. It is no Whole Hog Pumpkin Ale but I will be damned if it isn't delicious!

a: nonic pint, medium copper in color, average eggshell head with some light retention

s: sweet caramel with a buttered brown sugar, smooth squash, and restrained spice profile, nutmeg, ginger, anise cookie, very nice

m: prickly carbonation, body ranging around the low end of medium with a sugary slickness, smooth

t: heavy on the caramel malt and brown sugar with a slick, buttery feel, squashy, balanced spice with nutmeg most notable, ginger, sugar cookie, a bit of alcohol in the end with a mild hop flavor and slight bitterness

d: a little on the sweet side but easy enough, wasn't a huge fan at first, but it grew on me, appreciate that they didn't go crazy with the spices here

poured into new Belgian Globe.

Appearance: brilliant and clear amber orange bodied beer. Beer is topped with 1 finger of white head. Drops quickly to a ring.

Smell: Sweet and spicy smelling of big cinnamon and nutmeg spice. A touch of pumpkin.

Taste: starts off with spicey cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice and a hint of clove. Pumpkin shows itself in the middle, but fades quickly. The beer finishes with big cinnamon notes and a lingering vetigal pumpkin aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The spiciness in this beer makes it feel heavier than the beer really is.

Overall: A solid pumpkin beer tyranena! Its good, but Shafly is the best that i have tried so far!

12oz fall of 2010 bottle consumed 4.24.11

Appearance: Pours a slightly murky auburn with a 1 finger off white crown that shows moderate retention and lace.

Smell: Smells of all spice, clove, nutmeg, and some caramel malt.

Taste: Same as nose.

Mouthfeel: Fairly crisp if consumed while cold.

Overall: This is a solid pumpkin spice ale. I'm curious to know if the pumpkin made an appearance in fresher bottles. Also curious to know if the spices were overbearing on fresher bottles because I think they are just right at the moment.

Picked up a single 12oz of this new release brew from Famous Liquors in Lombard, IL.

A: Pours a dark orangy amber color with a half finger of just off white head that settles down to almost zero bubbles but laces as it goes down.

S: Smells to me like mainly pumpkin and oranges, as well as a pleasant balance of cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar

T: Tastes similar to the smell, except with no oranges. Mainly pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. There's a little lager beer type flavor in there with some metallic notes also, but not horribly so. It would be better had those flavors not been there though.

M: Mouthfeel on this is pretty good, with a higher amount of carbonation, but no too much. The carbonation actually helps this be smooth and close to creamy.

D: Pretty drinkable as there's no alcohol flavor, the taste is above average, but nothing here really blows me away and makes me yearn after more and more.

The beer pours a hazy amber color, with an orangish tint. The head is white, and thin. The aroma of this beer smells of pumpkin spices and malt. The taste is bready, with the flavor of pumpkin spices. The mouthfeel is sort of a medium light. Its a drinkable beer. Overall not much pumpkin flavor.
