Beerenberger (1519) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Aroma of pumpkin, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. Pours a dark copper with off- white head and no lacing. The taste follows the nose. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable pumpkin ale but slightly heavy on the spice side for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A pretty average pumpking beer. A bit synthetic with a bit of spice and caramel at the finish. Light flavor overall with a malty sweet aroma.

Draft at Brea location. Dark orange / amber pour. Aroma of pumpkin, a little spice (coriander i think). The flavor is nice and palate is good, but a little light on the malt.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2007
On tap at the Irvine location. Dark, orangish amber pour, transparent, with a thin layer of wispy beige head. A distinct clove aroma instantly grabs my nostrils, along with a bit of ginger. Some light vanilla and caramels also combine, softening up the gingerbread cookie aroma a bit. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. Lots of clove and ginger spice - I wish it had more cinnimon and nutmeg characters to give it a bit of a more traditional pumpkin pie flavor. Its rare that I complain about this aspect of a beer, buts its almost over attenuated. The dry finish makes the ginger and clove seem all the more dominant, which overpowers the caramel malt background a bit. The spices start to get a bit astringent toward the finish. Not a bad beer though - easy drinking, great accompaniment to my meal.

Dark redish copper with a light thin head. Light, sweet spice and pumpkin aroma. Thin body with a light pumpkin spice flavor and finish. Not the best.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Draught at the Boulder brewery.<P> Beer is medium-amber colored with a thick, large, creamy, beige, mostly diminishing head.<P> Not really enough pumpkin character to satisfy mu pumpkin-beer craving. The aroma was malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, caramel; Hoppy with moderate note of resin/pine, light note of lemon zest; Yeasty with a light note of dough; Miscellaneous notes included a light-to-moderate cinnamon and a light note of pumpkin pie filling.<P> The flavor was moderately sweet, lightly bitter, moderately acidic/sour with a long, lightly acidic, lightly bittersweet finish. Slightly dull and vegetal in the finish.<P> The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

desurfer (1222) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Deep amber body with little head. Aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg with some sweetness. Flavor is chock full of pumpkin goodness, little hoppiness and a well-rounded sweetness. Definitely good if pumpkin ales appeal to you.
