COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Found this to be very drinkable, nice amber look, decent light aroma and flavor of pumpkin and spice. I thought it was a bit too light though, just not enough of the good stuff for this type. I prefer Michigan Brew Company’s pumpkin.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 From bottle to glass: Poured medium amber, with little white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma of pumpkin and spice. Taste was very much pumpkin all the way through, finishing with spicies, nutmeg. This went down very smooth, and I enjoyed two! This is a very nice pumpkin ale and I will enjoy many more throughout the fall.
Re-Rated Due to tasting a better pumpkin beer.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Odd color, more auburn-mahogany. Some pumpkin and cinnamon in the nose, but some strange bitterness and caramel that seem odd. Odd malts, toffee’s there along with pumpkin and allspice/nutmeg. Finishes a bit sour. Not grand.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2009 Goes down smooth and has a very nice spicy pumpkin taste to it. Look forward to next autumn to get this again

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a bright copper/orange/amber with a big creamy, lacy, off-white head. Smells spicy, lightly bitter with aromas of pumpkin and cinnamon. Tastes spicy and sweet. Lots of pumpkin flavors in the body with a bitter finish. Medium bodied with a spicy pumpkin aftertaste. A bit creamy. This isn’t bad for the style but the style is not for me. Not one I’d care to sample again.

I had one on Halloween this past fall and felt as if there was some fake pumpkin flavouring in my beer. I’m not sure what could be done to improve, but it didn’t taste real. It has good colour and some nice spice, but overall a poor attempt.

waveman352 (178) - Saratoga Springs, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2005
bottle. Pours a cloudy red orange color with a small white thin head. Very good aftertaste and palate,, very spicy aroma and clear punpkin scent. I would recommend Post Road Pumpkin Ale before this omne but this is not a low end shabby beer.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Nice coloring, orange to amber. Pumpkin flavor didn’t come through all that strong. Sweet and smooth finish.

whiskeyfairy (27) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2005
Nice orange color. A sweet spice aroma and good carbonation. Not much pumpkin flavor. It would be better if I had poured it in the fall rather than a cold February day in MN.
