This one was unpleasant from start to finish. Pours light brown, with a quickly diminishing head. Aroma is of spices - nutmeg and pumpkin. Flavor is pumpkin pie spices, with a pumkin flavor that just tastes off to me. Pretty bad.

Pours a dark amber with a small head. Smells like a Budweiser with a very small pinch of spices. Tastes the same. Not good.

This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of slightly foamy finely sized mostly lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was unnoted and dark amber brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild spices and malts. Its mouth feel is initially spicy with a smooth finish. Its flavor contained malty spicy notes. Its an OK spice beer that was better than I expected.

Spice, wheat and malt aroma, deep amber, fair sized toffee head. Fine malt flavour, some caramel, woodiness, not much pumpkin. Light bodied, pleasingly bitter. Nice beer, but pumpkin is lacking.

hmmm...can’t really discern any pumpkin quality to this beer. Lacking in the spicy taste associated with many better pumpkin ales. Not a great effort.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2005 Bottle. Reddish amber body with a small orange-tan head. Nose is light pumpkin pie, light spice, generous malts and mild hints of caramel. Timid pumpkin flavors blended with faded spiciness and a sweeter malt profile. Body is medium with decent carbonation feel. Finishes with light spice and fruit with mild malt and caramel notes. Much better than expected and very drinkable!

Pours a dark amber color with a medium head. Aroma of possibly over-rippened pumpkin. Decent taste of pumpkin and malt, but it laked much of the spices that make up the typical pumkin ale. Slightly disappointing, but not bad.

Venturing down a steep mountain hill after an intense hike I could only dream of the relazation that awatied me at home. I prance in to find this wonderful beer looking me in the eye, saying, drink me, rest, enjoy, relax. so I did. the taste fit the mood perfectly as a slight bit of pumpkin-ness hit my tongue, but that was it, not much to offer after that. but at that moment the mood was just right. I had one the next day and then reached for a bud light. yeah, I said that.

Best pumpkin flavored beer bar none. Excellent spicy flavor; no moldy pumpkin taste like some other pumpkin beers have. Orange color fits right in to the autumn theme of this exceptional brew. Another Blue Moon winner...

Pumpkin What? I have had pumpkin beer before but this is the worst I have had so far. No taste at all! If you are in the Philadelphia area you must go to Iron Hill Brewery for the best Pumpkin Ale ever made! It is availabe around Halloween.
