Oh wow this is an amazing pumpkin beer. This is one of the best seasonal beers that I can get my fingers on. Nothing more to say. You just have to try some for yourself in the fall time. Cheers! A- (90-94) score range

This is one of the better pumpkin ales that I've tried. It pours a dark amber/orange color with a medium head. Very prominent pumpkin pie flavor. The body and mouthfeel of this beer is excellent. My only complaint is that there is an obvious off-flavor that comes through when it off-gasses carbonation (especially in the smell). This may be due to the use of pumpkin in the fermentation or it could just be my beer. I will say that it benefits greatly from some time spent in the refrigerator to clarify and drop some of the organic matter out of suspension (pour accordingly). I believe it is just a classic Scottish style ale with spices and pumpkin added. As is typical of the style, it is hopped only enough to add bitterness in order to showcase the malty and fruity elements. Well done. Tastes like Fall.

great tasting pumpkin brew. much like a good baked pumpkin pie without being overpowering to the beer itself. drinkable from ice cold to warm and an easy oddball beer flavor that can be enjoyed by both casual beer drinkers to beer advocates..... no pun intended

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky bright amber orange color with a small white head. The aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste follows the nose. Very nice.

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass.
Reddish, amber, slightly cloudy body, thin off white cap, and very little lacing.
Rich aroma of pumpkin spices, Nutmeg and cloves prominent, with minor whiff of cinnamon and ginger.
Slightly sweeter taste of spiced pumpkin, more with cloves and nutmeg.
Thin mouth feel.
Good, tasty pumpkin ale.
