Pumpkin Pie in a bottle. I am absolutely obsessed with fall and plan to drink one of these each day of October. I love it!

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass for maximum pretentiousness.

Appearance: Beer pours a golden copper color (or alternatively, a dark amber color) with a vague haziness. Head is thin and wispy, and pure white. Much like pumpkin pie.

Smell: Right out of the bottle (out of the fridge) it's not very appetizing...but after a few moments of warming up, the pumpkin flavor blasts through accompanied by the perennial cinnamon and nutmeg additions that are a part of pumpkin pie. As a pumpkin ale, it smells perfect.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Slightly buttery going in, it begins fizzing on the tongue. With the fizziness comes a great deal of pumpkin flavor, with an even amount of buttery sweetness and herbal spice. Aftertaste is beautiful, all that's missing is the crust and whipped cream.

Overall: A great dessert beer and a great fall beer. I am definitely picking up a six-pack of this when the harvest moon rolls through. VERY tasty, and well done.

Thank goodness for September!! The early fall seasonals start to come out and I get to enjoy one of my favorite beers! It looks like they redesigned the label. It's now black background with brown maple leaves and a jack-o-lantern. I have had this beer for years now and really enjoy this one. I finally remembered to review it! Duh.

A: Pours a wonderful hazy orange with a white-ish head that dissipates down to a persistent ring that produces slight lacing.

S: This is what I love. This beer has an honest name. Pumpkin and the associated pie spices (nutmeg and cinnamon) are obvious. No pumpkin extracts or candy - this is pie!

T: Once it gets to proper temperature the flavor is out of this world. But I don't need too many words to describe it - liquid pumpkin pie with alcohol content. Good rich flavor that isn't watered down.

M: Medium bodied, good carbonation. I wouldn't call it dry but maybe... You know how your mouth feels after some good cinnamon? That's the feeling. It's not a bad thing. I think it adds to the genuineness of the pumpkin flavor.

D: I love this. I could drink this - slowly - all night long. This is a really fine example of a fall seasonal beer. Of all the pumpkin ales out there this year, don't pass this one up!!

This is by far one of the best pumpkin beers on the market and absolutely the only one that actually taste like pumpkin pie and in a good way.
