This amber-colored flavored ale is brewed only in the autumn and combines the flavor of vine-ripened pumpkin pie flavor with traditional crystal malt.

transparent amber color with an off white head...can definitely smell the pumpkin with a bit of malt and a touch of sweetness, medium body that is pretty sweet, pumpkin and malt flavors with a pumpkiny finish...quite interesting, i need to try another pumpkin beer to compare but not bad for something during the fall

Moderate head to start with, resides quickly. Kind of a golden-amber color (which makes me think of a pumpkin) with a horribly bitter aftertaste. Spice flavor is too strong which I think is caused by the lack of flavor in the beer itself. Nothing will top the New Holland Ichabod Pumpkin Ale. Try that if you want a "perfect" blend of malt and spice. These seem to be hit or miss with this one being a miss. The overpowering flavor of the spice and the lack of flavor in the beer leave this very unbalanced.......and the bitterness has got to go!

Good beer for the fall, I had hoped the pumpkin taste would not over power and it did not.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Clear medium-dark amber, little head. Sweetish nose not unpleasant, only vaguely pumpkinish, more malty-butterscotch. Ok flavor, but has an inappropriate cardboardy edge and bitterness; relatively bland finish.

Drank a bunch of these, At first I thought that the pumpkin flavor would be too sweet to keep drinking. But I never tired of the flavor. Not a beer I would look to buy but i would gladly drink if offered to me.

Frank (3596) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Golden brown with a thin brown head. Nose is mostly dominated by spice with a slight sweet edge. Flavor is cloyingly sweet with mild spice. Sluggish palate. Pretty much worthless.

bright copper/dark amber color. Nose is fresh and fruity with a light hint of ginger. A pumpkinesque thing happening in the nose as well, picking up notes of alcohol, some other spices. Slightly sweet at the front with some vegetal/organic notes. Hints of ginger carry in the spritzy middle, making way to a semi-sweet, light grassy and malty finish. A little sweet and I'm still not a huge fan of ginger, doesn't come together that nicely.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 24, 2003
Deep amber color with a light, creamy head and a slight malty aroma. Starts out sweet with some crystal malt notes,but not really any pumpkin or spice flavors. The finish is somewhat sour and dry. Dissapointing.

Smells like pumpkin pie. Tastes like sweet malty beer with plenty of pumpkin pie spice.Not a lot of pumpkin flavor. Thin and highly carbonated. Hops unnoticeable. Not bad, but won't buy again. Looking forward to my own batch,though.
