Dark golden, slightly hazy, with a thin white head. Very pumpkiny, squashy aroma, slightly buttery, with some cinnamon and flowers, but the pumpkin flavor is at the forefront unlike so many other pumpkin beers that hit you in the face with cinnamon and nutmeg. Quite good.

I was surprised to see this still on the menu. One of the few in which the actual squash flavor comes to the forefront, the usual spices playing a secondary role. Pretty tasty ale with a golden body, active bubbling, and a frothy, lacing head.

shigadeyo (3026) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2006
Sampled from tap on 11/10/2006 at Walter Payton’s Roundhouse in Aurora, IL... Clear light orange/copper color with moderate carbonation and no head. Aroma is has some subtle pumpkin and sqash undertones with hints of pumpkin pie spices as well. The flavor is squash, a very small hint of pumpkin and mostly ginger spice. Medium body. This was a fairly average and typical Pumpkin Ale.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium thin white head that recedes to an outer ring quickly. Aroma of ginger and pumpkin. Light body with flavors of sweet pumpkin spices and malt. The finish is clean and sweetly spiced. Slightly below average overall.

12oz bottle. pours orange, but roasted and rusty, w/a hint of light amber. head was minimal, but present. aromas are of...thin pumpkin, nutmeg cream, and heavy egg nog. the egg nog practically drowns out the other aromas. same way on taste. the egg nog overwhelms, while the carbonation, autumnal flavored yeasts, and caramel malts take a deep backseat. interesting conglomeration, but i’d rather it be released in nov under a name of ’holiday spice ale’...just a marketing suggestion.

Jobus (7) - Chuluota, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2007 does not count
Golden Orange, slightly cloudy appearance. The taste is not too bad as I was franky expecting the worst. I like the slight pumpkin taste, but the spices are a turn off. The spices remind me of a holiday tea or coffee. Nutmeg and/or cinnamin I guess.

Tried this one out on tap while up judging the Drunk Monk Challenge but didn’t have time for good notes, just jotted down "boring and lacks spice."

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2010
12oz bottle from Market Street. Clear, honey-colored body with a fizzy, rapidly dissapearing tan head. Nose is pumpkin, some spices, hint of clove and light sweetness. Flavor is (dissapointing when compared to the nose) light pumpkin and bit of spices and sweetness. Very thin body. Lively carbonation. Short, micro-bitter finish. Not much character/depth here.

Bottle. Orangy golden color that is a bit hazy. Smelling the pumpkin in the aroma. Flavor is lots of spice and pumpkin. Maybe a little too heavy on the spice. Thin watery mouthfeel.
