Pours a clear dark amber with white head. Aroma is similar to freshly baked pumpkin pie. Taste is sweet pumpkin pie with crust. Superb. Extremely smooth and delicious. Will be looking for this in quantity.

On draft at the brewery... again. Deep amber color, full tan head, right level of spice, with vegetative hop notes and caramel on the nose, which works great for a pumpkin brew. Medium bodied, and less spice on the palate than I expected. On the finish- great spice and vanilla flavor. As I said, just a really excellent, well-made autumn brew and great representation of the pumpkin style from Lancaster Brewing.

growler fill straight from the brewery in Lancaster, PA

A- a crystal clear amber, with an off white head, nice lacing.

S- A nice mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, with a hint of vanilla, yeasty esters, and pie crust.

T- Follows the nose nicely, but also has a bit of alcohol sweetness. It's oh so close to DFH Punkin', which I love.

M- Medium body, amble carbonation

O- If you like DFH Punkin', get this one. It's oh so close, and much more readily available (at least int his area!) Great stuff.

I don't know that any other pumpkin beer has the taste to match the description quite like this. The flavors perfectly mimic a slice of pumpkin pie mixed with a sugary cream sweetness just like a dollop of whipped cream.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Orange / amber with hardly any head. Excellent clarity with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Caramel, pie crust, pumpkin, and light spices.

Taste
Caramel and toasted pie crust with additional candy sugars. Pumpkin guts and puree with light spicing. Hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth, balanced, and refreshing.

Overall
Very pumpkin and malt forward. Lighter spicing than most Pumpkin beers...thank God.

Look: Poured into a tulip, it's a deep, orange, copper color. Pours with a white fluffy head.

Smell: Sweet pumpkin spices, cinnamon, wheaty malts,

Taste: Very sweet Pumpkin spice flavor upfront and it follows all the way through to the end. You can taste the malts, but pumpkin is very upfront and dominates the taste of this beer. Excellent stuff!

Feel: Medium-full bodied. Medium carbonation. Just right.

Overall: This rivals Southern Tier Pumking. It's not quite as sweet and spicy as Pumpking, but it has more of an authentic pumpkin pie flavor. I didn't expect to like it this much. The steaming pumpkin pie lable is spot on to how this beer tastes. It's excellent!
