Got a 6-pack of this one at Walgreens in Vegas. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a fizzy warm cap that disappears quickly and leaves not much lace. Smells like pumpkin purée at first, but then the spices come out (cinnamon, nutmeg). Same for taste with just a little sourness, and less spices. Seems like a decent brew for those who prefer more pumpkin than spices.

8/26/2010. From bottle. Pumpkin, malt and spice aromas. A little sticky sweet. Sweet flavors from the pumpkin, but somewhat muted. Meh...

My favorite pumpkin ale. I was surprised to see such a low rating from everyone, since I really enjoyed this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A new pumpkin I’ve never seen. Jazzy orange brown with no real head or lace. Aroma is vegetal with hints of spice, taste follows, more pumpkin than pie. Not bad, but nothing special.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Poured a clear orange color with a pretty much nonexistent head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and little bit of sweetness. Taste is faint pumpkin and spice. If the taste was more intense this would be outstanding. Texture is watery which subtracts from overall appeal.

Not bad! No head, but a nice seasonal cloudy orange hue. Slightly hoppy, an understated pumpkin flavor, but good on an October evening.

Cloudy orange with almost no head. Fairly rich in pumpkin aroma but watery mild taste with less autumn spices than most other pumpkin beers. Sour to rancid after taste ruins the beer though.

Damico (2789) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pours mostly clear orange with a small sandy head. Aroma is light cloves and some fall spice zest. Flavor is amber malty dominant with light spices and a very light body.
