Hazy orange coloration, slim head.

Aroma: all pumpkin spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, a little of clove. Mmmm.

More spice once in the mouth. Medium bodied, high carbonation, spritzy and spicy. Long, lingering finish in the mouth.

Easy drinkability, refreshing, not too big, not too boisterous. A sessionable pumpkin ale.

On tap at Ngon Vietnamese in St. Paul and served in a tulip. Can't say I'm a fan, the beer is too thin for the spices and comes off to perfumey and like an overpowered scented candle. The cinnamon and nutmeg are just too much. The mellow and subtle pumpkin flavor is actually really nice and complex, but the spicing levels are too much. Also, the flavor reminds me oddly enough of apple cinnamon cider, that can't be good for a pumpkin beer.

UPDATE 11/24/10: Tried this again at Stub & Herb's and found it to be a pleasantly drinkable pumkin beer. It was relatively thin, but not too thin. There was a big pumpkin pie flavor with a good hit of cinnamon.

Had on tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. It pours copper tinted amber under a 1” cream colored foam collar. Pumpkin spice aromas – clove, cinnamon, and ginger dominate the palate in a medium light bodied beer with medium carbonation. An easy drinker.

Pours from a bomber an lighter amber hue with a fizzy head that disappears quickly. Not much in the way of lacing.

Awesome smell of pumpkin pie spices. Nutmeg and cinnamon really stand out. Very nice smell of warm and spicy pumpkin pumpkin pie overall.

Tastes much like a homemade pumpkin butter. Lots of pumpkin pie spices to go with the pumpkin. Rather skimpy malt presence. Pumpkin and spices are tasty and really stand out, but they do beg for a malty sweetness. Very long spice finish.

The body is too thin and light. Makes it go down easy, but the need for body is there. Quite dry feeling from all of the spices.

I like this beer, but I would really love it if it had a larger malt base. All the components are there for a perfect pumpkin ale, except the malt, which would really help out the body and flavor.

Had on tap at the Groveland Tap in St. Paul, MN. Served in a British style tulip pint glass.

Appearance: Bright amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About three fingers of off white head with decent retention. Lots of sticky lacing.

Smell: Strong aroma of cinnamon spices up front with nutmeg and pumpkin pie. Hints of bready caramel malts, apple, and earthy hops. Smell is very spicy and moderately sweet.

Taste: Like the smell, lots of spicy cinnamon and nutmeg up front. Solid body of pumpkin pie flavor with hints of caramel malts, toffee, and apple. Hop presence is very light. Fairly spicy and sweet while still being well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Very smooth. Spices leave a nice lingering aftertaste in the mouth.

Overall: A very solid spiced pumpkin beer. Full flavored and pretty easy drinking.

This beer pours a clear ruby color. The head is half an inch in height, and recedes slowly into a small cap of lacing. The aroma is of nutmeg, all spice, cinnamon, and a hint of pumpkin in the background. The taste is a bit mellower than the aroma with more of a malty roundness. There is, however, still a significant pumpkin spice character that is foremost on the palate. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied with a watery texture, and aggressive carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty good pumpkin ale. However, the thin body really detracts from my enjoyment of the rest of the beer.

Pours an orangish rusty color with a small head on it. The nose has faint spice spiraling out the glass (especially cloves) with a touch of pumpkin malts. The taste is watery upfront, which moves to some earthy pumpkin flavors with some more wateriness. Mouth is medium bodied and smooth. Overall, this one is a miss - pretty watery without much taste on the palate of which to speak. I was wanting to try this for a while and was excited to find out my buddy obtained a bottle, but not worth tracking down...

Serving glass: Clear amber-orange with thin off-white head.

Smell: Lots of spice in the aroma, with cloves, ginger and cinnamon most noticeable. Some light caramel and pumpkin.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, fairly light body, dry finish.

Overall: Great low abv Pumpkin Ale.
