Notes / Commercial Description:
Our golden orange-colored Pumpkin Ale is brewed with pumpkin and spices to produce a delicious taste of fall. This mild ale has little bitterness and a malty backbone.

An amber/orange pour with major clarity. Faint fall spices on the nose but not overly floral at all.
Initial taste yields a crisp and clean start with a rush of pumpkin and spice notes on the finish. Pretty decent tones of pumpkin, nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon. The mouth feel is a bit light and even slightly watery.

Overall, a pretty average beer for the style at best. A good easy drinker that is neither horrible or great.

This beer is amazing. Smell, taste, look, you name it. Not just a beer for Autumn, it's early August and I'd prefer this beer over any summer ale. Drink this beer, you will not be disappointed.

I walked into the craft beer store this afternoon (Saveon) and I saw several pumpkin ales. That can only mean time for college football! I had heard that the Browns were coming back for more punishment, but they said the same about the Indians and they didn't show up. But the Buckeyes will show!. O H. IO

Anyhow, this stuff looks good. Light brown. A little fizz. It smells a little pumpkin like and less so spice like, and that's good.

The aftertaste is clean. For the style. So as the first pumpkin ale of the year for me, it leaves me wanting a more American style pumpkin ale. Imperial, kill all the aboriginal peoples, no flag, no country, pumpkin ale. I will seek out only the biggest of the style the rest of this season.

Sorry for such a trivial review for my first for this brewer (I'm pretty sure). Hopefully there will be other good beers. This one is really OK and recommended.

Malty aroma has an overtone of cinnamon and subtle pumpkin and earthy notes. Pours a dark orange amber with a thick, fluffy, persistent pale tan head. Flavor has malty and caramel notes with hints of pumpkin, cloves and cinnamon. Smooth texture has firm body and good fizz. If you like pumpkin beers, pick this one from the patch.

12-oz bottle into nonic pub glass

A - 3 fingers of khaki over a transparent body of orange amber, medium/high amount of visible carbonation, decent web of lace

S - malty and sweet with a strong aroma of pumpkin spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice); par for the style

T - caramel-sweet malts, pumpkin spices, pumpkin

M - smooth medium body, moderate/high carbonation, slightly boozy finish

O - Not a bad brew, but nothing spectacular compared to other pumpkin ales.
