UPDATED: JUL 14, 2004 Crystal clear amber with quickly dissipating head. Aroma of cinnamon imperials (red-hots). Lots of spice flavor (cinnamon dominates, stale nutmeg), smooth savory pumpkin flavors sneak in behind the crystal malt, too. Glad I only bought a single.

Overall, a very pumpkiny beer brewed by a man with our first president's name. How could you not love that? Well, I really don't like pumpkins and the after taste of this was way too pumpkiny. I enjoyed the Post Road better for the potpourri of spices it provided. This is decent and pumpkin pie lovers will definitely love it. But this ratebeerian thinks it falls short.

Clear dark orangish color. Tastes like liquid pumpkin pie. Almost zero carbonation. No detectable alcohol. Watery. Dissapointing.

Sickingly sweet is my first and foremost thought about this beer. Way to sweet to be a beer. It poured a medium sized ivory head with fine-large sized bubbles that quickly diminished. The nose was pumpkin pie, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. The flavor was sweet, malty and of course, pumpkin. It had a smooth mouthfeel along with a thin and watery texture and it was light bodied. The lacing was sparse. Another rating down the tubes of a beer that I absolutely did not enjoy one bit.

Light amber with a quickly fading white head. Nutmeg is the pronounced aroma in this beer while chilled, then cinnamon takes over IMHO; a little sweet caramel malt plays back up to spices. The nutmeg and cinnamon seem to be the most predominant flavor other than a little malt for this beer; it's well balanced, but lacks any distinct characteristics. They are all pretty well muddled together. A little astringent and light bodied, but not bad for an SHV beer. Not terribly imppressive, but drinkable nonetheless.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 (Bottle) This ale poured a deep cooper color with very little head. Had a strong pumkin and cinnamon aroma. Tasted like pumpkin pie with a bitter bite at the end.

Like drinking a pumpkin pie, complete with nutmeg, clove and cinnamon - which seems to be the intent. Execution is just ok; it seemed a bit watery. Bottom line for me is that I never had yearned for pumpkin pie in my beer bottle, so I'll move on.

This brew poured a medium head of fine to medium sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a light orange brown colored transparent softly carbonated body and a fair lacing. The aroma smells very much like a pumpkin pie. The mouthfeel is smooth and sickening. God its like drinking a pumpkin! I suppose that is good for the style but come on now. The flavor is cloven, pumpkin and malt. Weird flavor and not one that I would care to try again. Ewwww!

This one tastes like big slice of pumpkin pie. Flavor of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and of course pumpkin. Pretty much what I was expecting for a pumpkin brew. Looks like flat amber beer, no head at all. Not much else to say about it. If you are on a liquid diet, and miss your pumpkin pie, grap one of these.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2003 wow! nice smell, spicy pumpkin pie! at first, though. it's very welcoming. nice golden brown translucent looking beer with a head that leaves itself into a good ring around the glass. interesting bubbly appearance - streaks of bubbles form near the half filled mark, but that dies quickly. the alcohol kinda ruins it though. i was so reminded of a pumpkin pie that when i continued drinking this i just wanted the damn pie, not a beer. needs more, lacking. egh.
