Solid pumpkin ale. Pours dark orange from draft with little head that dissipated quickly. Cloudy. Smells of spices with a hint of cloves. Tastes like pumpkin, vanilla, all spice and cloves with a little nutmeg. Very light and smooth in the mouth. Clean finish. No bitterness. Better than Dogfish Head.just behind Schlafly and Alewerks. Excellent.

Wow. What a great way to start a fall beer session. This exceeds my expectations.

It pours a great light brown color. Clear, with just a bit of head turning to a light fizz. The aroma is first rate. Not too pumpkin pie (like a Pumpking, though I love those), yet just enough real pumpkin smell.

The taste similarly is real. Real ale (brown?) and real pumpkin, with other stuff, but not too much spice. A nice complex blend. A great refreshment.

The aftertaste is very pleasant. Just a little bite. No booze. This is a very good pumpkin ale. The bottle was a lot cooler than the photo - solid orange.

Pours dark amber with a one finger beige head. The aroma has pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spices. There is cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger.

Tastes much like it smells with pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and toasted malt. There is also a light hop bitterness at the end.

Medium bodied with low carbonation. There is a light pumpkin spice aftertaste. Easy to drink. I am glad I gave this beer a try. Worth picking up again.

750ml bottle. Pours a dark rusty orange amber with a small beige head. Aroma is of sweet pumpkin spices, nutmeg and some malt. Taste same as aroma, but not overly sweet or cloying like other pumpkin ales, a bit of cooked vegetable flavor and mild caramel malt undertones with some mild bitterness, Palate is a medium body, good carbonation, sweet and very palatable brew. Finishes with sweet pumpkin spices, nutmeg, some cooked vegetable notes, mild caramel malt and some bitterness on the end for balance. Could have used a bit more pumpkin spice. Overall this is a good, easy drinking, and unassumingly nicely balanced brew.
