A - orangish copper color without much of a head

S - loads of spices billow out of the glass - nutmeg, cinnamon, and sugary crust.

T - sweet spices from the nose are upfront and give way to some nice caramel malts through the middle. The caramel malts are superseded by some more spices from the nose - cinnamon and nutmeg are most prominent.

M - creamy and full body

D - pretty solid pumpkin ale by Tyranena. This has more spices than anything else...almost like a mini Schlafly pumpkin ale. Been wanting to try this one for a while and glad I got the chance.

12 oz. bottle tried 21 Nov 2011. From our Wisconsin connection R&S, thank you. Served in the Bright Brewing shaker pint.

Small parchment colored head. Medium carbonation. Clear burnt umber color. Aroma is spicy, clove and nutmeg. Starts sweet with a lot of spices, nutmeg, clove, ginger. Spiciness continues throughout. Medium body, ethanol is hidden. Finish and aftertaste are sweet and spicy, very much reminiscent of pumpkin pie. Nutmeg dominates.

A says tastes like potpourri. But then, she doesn't really like pumpkin beers. I thought it was pretty decent.

Sent as an extra by inlimbo77 and poured into a tulip.

Autumnal orange, murky to the point of total, muddy opacity. Half a finger of airy white head fizzles away within seconds, leaving behind a thin, soapy ring. No lace.

Creamy, sweet nose. Smooth, sugared pumpkin pie mixed with heavy cream. As it warms more spices emerge. Mostly clove, but there’s also some nutmeg.

Sharp, gently roasted pumpkin mixes with spices. Nutmeg is the biggest, then cinnamon sticks. Tangy, almost citrusy notes emerge after a while.

Just an awesome mouthfeel. Soft as a velvet hug, creamy, medium. Carbonation is almost not there, prickly, breaking into just a bit of fizz.

Not a bad example of the style. Balanced and drinkable, with a smooth blend of spice and pumpkin.

Pours a hazy orangeish brown with a finger of a white head.

smell- Smells like fall in a bottle, pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon and a hint of citrus. Very sweet smelling.

taste- Tastes like pumpkin pie with cinnamon. Spices were not overwhelming either which I thought they would be smelling the beer.

mouthfeel- thin bodied... carbonation was good

overall- It was a very good pumpkin ale, by far the best ive had so far and it should go perfect for thanksgiving.

From 10/24/11 tasting notes

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into my Ale Asylum pint glass

A) A clean looking orange, with a finger of off white head. The head dissipates to a nice dusting, and there was some decent lacing. The parade of bubbles making their way to the surface was also visually pleasing.

S) Pumpkin... Spice... The aroma is fairly sweet, but not overpowering.

T) Sweet pumpkin bread, spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Hops detected slightly in the finish. The 7.50 ABV was extremely well hidden.

M) Medium body, and quite well carbonated. Settles well on the palate. A nice crisp feel and good aftertaste.

O) A real nice pumpkin brew. It reminded me a bit of Lakefront's Pumpkin Lager, just a little more spiced. I must say, these pumpkin beers are really growing on me. I would gladly recommend this beer. Well done Tyranena...

Poured into 12oz Pilsner Glass

Appearance - Dark Orange with a tinge of crimson and brown. Hazeiness gives of an unflitered look to it.

Smell - Smells like Pumpkin Pie, but with hints of cinnamon and ginger snaps, or a Snickerdoodle Cookie. It has a very sweet aroma to it and that makes it all the more appealing. Smell is more prevalent the more it warms up.

Taste - The flavor is a combination of Cinnamon, Spice and Pumpkin with a very sweet kick. There is also hints of hops in the back. Spiciness is a bit excessive, but not overwhelming. The aftertaste is that of a sweet pumpkin flavor

Mouthfeel - Carbonation is moderate as well as the body. It's one of the more spicy beers that I've had but I felt it added more to the flavor. I get a very warm sensation from drinking this beer.

Overall - I think I may have found my new favorite seasonal fall beer. This is definitely one of the more unique beers I have had and the first pumpkin ale that I've drank. It's not a beer for everyone, but if you're into fall seasonal beers and are looking for something different, this one is worth checking out.
