This is my second favorite pumpkin beer to southern tier. Clipper city has only made this 2 years so I'm sure it will get better with time. They also just released a version of this that is aged in bourbon barrels.

The pumpkin flavor is so smooth, great spices too but not overpowering. A great balance, I wish I could drink this all year.

Pours pumpkin orange and boy is it a doozy. taste of pumpkin pie ever increasing each sip you drink, Has a thin white cool whip colored head. Smells alot like pumpkin pie. Sipped this while watching Its the great pumpkin charlie brown, it's spices actually got more intense as I continued to drink it. I think I might make this a new Halloween tradition.

Poured from a bomber to a pint glass:

A - Orange coppery color, think head, plenty of lacing

S - Spicey tones, rich malty scents

T - This is one of the best pumpkin beers I have had. Nice balance of spices, brown sugar/malty flavours, and a satifying bite of hops. Warms the pallet.

M - heavy bodied, decent carbonation.

D - Could drink this all night, excellent.

Cowboys are on fire!!! Which is rare for the 2010 season!

A- pours a pumpkin orange with a slight head. The brew makes me want to rewind to Halloween and drink this instead of Heavy Seas Prosit!.... although that was excellent too. Heavy Seas may be my new one two punch for Halloween!

S- warming pumpkin and flavors emerge from the brew... there are warming malt themes that cross with the spice to make a tasty brew. Very disciplined with maintaining a pumpkin theme

T- this is pumpkin! I don't care what anyone says. Pumking and this brew exemplify consistancy with the style. Sweet brown sugar is mixed with this spiced treat. FANTASTIC

M- cream, foam, thick, carbonated.. go with it!

D- The great pumpkin may be the best pumpkin beer out there. I am sorry but I will seek this brew every single Fall season from here on out. Great job heavy seas... this can be SLAMMED!
