Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is as expected, with loads of pumpkin and nutmeg. The flavor is very similar. The pumpkin notes are present, as is come cinnamon and nutmeg. There is also some toffee and biscuit malt in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark copper with a quickly receding half finger of head. Leaves no lacing. Smells of pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie crust, slight cinnamon, and slight ginger. The taste is of straight pumpkin crust, With a good dose of ginger thrown into the mix. Only thing missing is the whipped cream. The mouthfeel keeps the mentioned flavors however the nutmeg comes through and dominates over the rest of the flavors. Over all, this was a delicious beer that would pair up well with Thanksgiving dinner. Hell, Even my girlfriend liked it!

Appearance - Pours a reddish amber with an off-white 2 finger head, sub-par retention, and a resulting lace that's sparse, clinging mostly to the sides.

Smell - Smells of pie crust malts, hints of pumpkin and nutmeg spice.

Taste - Big pie crust malt flavors, accompanied by notes of pumpkin and nutmeg. Hints of spice.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body. Okay carbonation. Fairly smooth.

Overall - Tastes nearly identical to the Apple Caramel ale, though this one gets slightly higher marks for tasting somewhat akin to the name and description given. Definite pie crust flavors that the latter had, but the hints of pumpkin come out slightly better than the "apple and caramel" character that's supposedly in the other beer. Truth be told, if I did a blind taste test, I believe I'd have a hard time differentiating between the two.

Poured out into a pint glass, this pumpkin ale is crystal clear with mild carbonation and a semi thick off white head that quickly dissipates into a thin layer of bubbles caressed by a good layer of lacing. The aroma is nice; I picked up some cloves, pumpkin spices, all spice, cinnamon, figs and raisins. It has a medium to light mouthfeel, and leans more toward light… Its crisp and sharp tasting throughout, on the tip of your tongue its mildly bitter, but the spices come out as it travels towards the back of your throat. As it hits the mid-section of your tongue, you can taste the spices and cloves; by the time it hits the back of your mouth the cloves, allspice and cinnamon are more present. This beer maintains its crispness throughout and is very pleasant overall, but the flavors could be a bit more present.
