bottle thanks to thaichile...pours brownish-orange with average head that quickly disappears, aroma is of cinnamon & clove...taste is fairly malty with the pumpkin pie seasonings. Dry finish, I’m actually a fan of pumpkin beers and enjoyed this more than the average pumpkin brew!

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber brown with virtually no head. Aroma of spiced pumpkin; allspice, cinnamon, cloves. Flavor of...spiced pumpkin, as above. Finishes with...spiced pumpkin. Both is not too bad at all, decent thickness (2% milk). This is probably the pumpkinest pumpkin ale I’ve ever had. If you like pumpkin pie, you are set.

Wow. Great label, rubbish ale. I am convinced no body will make a good pumpkin ale. They’re all gross, this being no exception. And, quite frankly, if I want pumpkin pie, I’ll order pumpkin pie. Not pumpkin pie flavored beer that tastes nothing like pumpkin pie and everything like ass. I do like the label though. It’s got that going for it. Not trying to slam the brewer, but rather the style. They should all give it up.

And..............this went right down the drain. Sorry, im not into these pumpkin beers. They all have that same taste, which come to think of it, really is so much pumpkin as it is clove and nutmeg. Anyway, this was about as good as I expected it would be.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2006
12 oz bottle via oldgrowth (thanks!). Semi clear amber with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is what else-pumkin..also a bit of cinnamon and vanilla, and i would swear there is custard in their but of course i am imagining things, lol...It tastes just like it smells with soem allspice flavor and a nice malt backbone. Not a fan of pumpkin beers but this is pretty good.

Scubatrip (605) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2006
From the bottle, pours a clear, deep ruby red without a lot of head. Smells like pumpkin pie. Vanilla, alspice, and even the cool wip. Tastes like pumpkin pie, but not fresh baked pumpkin pie. Definitely been in the fridge for a day or two. Sweet, some cinnamon and sweet malts in there, as well as the vanilla, alspice, and cool wip. Not bad, not my favorite pumpkin ale.

12 ounce bottle from Thaichile. Pours crystal clear copper with a pertty thin white head. The aroma features cinnamon, all spice, sugars, even some cracker/crush type aroma. Spice flavor. Sweet flavor with a bitter finish. Medium body. Not bad for pumpkin.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Bottle thanks to OldGrowth: Pours a transparent copper bronze with a thin, but frothy and spotty-lacing white head. Has a sugary sweet caramel pumpkin nose and some pleasant cinnamon spice. Body starts with a mild malty sweetness, some toasted grains, and an earthy spice presence before a slightly more bitter dry finish. A pretty decent pumpkin brew.
