On tap. Very much a pumpkin beer. Lots of the pumpkin in this one, and lighter on the cinamon and nutmeg. Carb is a bit low so the finish is a touch flat. Overall others do the style better but this one works

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of slight pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of Pumpkin Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet malt, hint of caramel malt, hint of hops, hint of alcohol, and slight pumpkin. Overall, weak appearance, sharp, good blend (not too spicy nor all pumpkin) and body though.

See Beerchitect's review, as I Had during a hot summer resurgence from last year's batch. But, good. This is an interesting ale with a good story.

Delicate, smooth and a little saucy- the world looks spicy, sweet and fall-like through these pumpkin tinted glasses. As a taste of grandma's pumpkin ale crams into the beer glass, the pumpkin ale season is upon us- good gourd!

Painted ladies pours a soft and glowing golden, amber and yes- orange hue. Crowned with a frothy meringue, the beer's scent is bright with pumpkin spice but somber with caramel and cake. Its taste burst with caramel, graham cracker, toasted pecan, bread crust and light cream.

Its malty underpinnings hold true while the array of spices mingle overhead. Cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and clove come in equal parts as a sense of gingerbread brings the spices and sweetness together. Mildly bitter, the ale lets the spices carry the load with suggestions of chai, spice cake and of course grandma's pumpkin pie.

Evading the astringency that commonly plagues pumpkin ale, the beer trails into a smooth, silky and spicy after-palate with a medium-full body and a warming sense of calm. Lingering sweetness and gourd-like starchiness ensures that the ale is much more appreciated as a culinary-packed session rather than a crisp, quaffing one.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pumpkin, subtle spices. Taste is the same, pumpkin up front, spices in the background, smooth and easy drinking for the abv. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

12oz bottle poured into a goblet, bottles 8/12/15

A- pours a clear amber color with a small creamy white head that reduces to a thick ring around the edge that retains long after the pour

S- balance of typical pumpkin spicing with some toasted malt undertones, also picking up a hint of vanilla cream

T- slightly sweet toasted malt base gives way to a balance of cinnamon and nutmeg with hints of brown sugar. Toasted finish

M- medium body and moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a creamy smooth finish

O- high drinkability and good balance among the spices

Had on tap at brewery. A lighter yellow, clear with a nice white head. Nice aromas of cinnamon, spice and everything nice about fall. Flavor is real, an ale with fall spices of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. Feel is definitely lighter and easy drinking. I enjoyed it and it is a tasty treat for a fall day.
