Poured a cloudy, amber hue with a nice glow around the edges. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, apple (apple pie), and some pumpkin. Tasted the pumpkin, definitely not a spicy mess... very delicate cinnamon and spice. Could use a bit more hop bitterness in my opinion for balance, but very good. Smooth, medium body and mouthfeel with very little aftertaste. Overall this was outstanding, I can see why it won a blind pumpkin tasting in my bottleshop 2 years running.

A: Brown like a brown ale. Little head with a nice lace that stayed

S: Pumpkin Pie, as advertised. If I had whipped cream.. Not quite as sweet smelling. Weak alcohol smell at the back as well.

M: Creamy finish that left little taste. Hole in the middle.

T:Another beer I had high hopes of tasting like a slice of pumpkin pie and well, it does, on steroids. Strong alcohol takes control and punches in the palette. Prune and raisin with just a hint of cinnamon and pumpkin off to the sides with the linger of pumpkin finish and molasses.

O: One man's pumpkin ale is not another mans pumpkin ale. This is a great beverage, just a bit stronger than my holy grail of pumpkin pie in a glass with whipped cream.

This is a really impressive pumpkin ale. I like the way the pumpkin/gourd flavor combines with the spicing. This is not a spice bomb but it add a nice touch with cinnamon and nutmeg most prevalent. Really like the aroma and flavor. Only slight knock would be it could use a bit fuller body for 7.5%. Finishes a little thin rather than rounded but I am splitting hairs....one of the better pumpkin ales out there..
