UPDATED: NOV 1, 2009 The aroma was more spicy than pumpkin like. That is not to say there was none because there was definitely some. There was also caramel malt but not much in the way of hops. The appearance was amber with an smaller head. The flavor had more pumpkin that the aroma lead on but it was very similar to it. The palate was OK. I love pumpkin beers so this seemed quite good to me.

On tap at BJs. Copper brown with a fizzy white head. Pumpkin and malt aroma. Taste of pumpkin and spice. Better than most pumpkin beers, but thatís not saying much.

Had this as a small sample, draft. It definitely has a pumpkin flavor too it. Not sure what else to say about it, but it was definitely good.

Not the worst pumpkin beer Iíve ever had, but still I find them lacking. Perhaps Iím expecting a bit more sweetness to come forward and since it never does, Iím left slightly disappointed. Either way, this wasnít a bad beer at all. Aroma is slightly vegetative, perfumy with enough nutmeg to notice. Appearance is a light amber color, off-white head. Flavor was a bit green, vegetative with some subtle cinammon and nutmeg spices to notice but not overpower. A bit watery, I felt if it were more creamy, with a little more sweetness left in it it could have been better. But, still...not bad.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2007
On tap at the Brea location on 12/3/06: Pours a transparent copper bronze with a wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet cinnamony nutmeg and caramel malt. Body starts with a light sugary caramel maltiness and a pumpkin spice flavor that reminds me of those windmill cookies. Nicely-balanced and enjoyable brew with good use of the pumpkin and spice flavors.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2007
Brea location: Hazy deep amber color with a creamy off-white head. Big aroma of cinnamon and ginget. It smells like a ginger bread cookie. Clove notes as well. The beer tastes like pumpkin pie. It was strong and almost overwhelms on the first sip but then you are ready for it. Not bad.
