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.

Mildly spicey when compared to DFH Punkin Head. More balanced in terms of sweetness with the cinanmon and allspice. Definately a Punpkin Beer. Amber color with a thin white head and medium body. Overall, I am not a bit Pumpkin beer fan bu tis' the season. Better than average.

Spicy, Delicious, tasted much better than I expected. We don't rate labels but if we did, I would give this label a high rating too.

Pours a hazy deep amber with an off white head that disappeared at an average rate to leave very little lace. The aroma is one of my favorite parts - smells like pumpkin pie. The taste is like a moderately hopped APA with a pumpkin pie mixed in, without the palate that would result. The palate is really quite average and carbonated. I'm glad I tried this as it really fits the fall day we are having.

Another pumpkin ale that is orange-brown. Small head. Nose is much spicier than the Post Road pumpkin ale. Almost a cider and cinnamon mixed with pumpkin pie. Strong clove taste as well. Very spicy taste. It seems stronger than the aroma. Dry finish. I think it finishes better than it tastes. Decent but too spicy for me.

Pretty golden beer with a small but lasting white head and an aroma that slaps you aggresively with very sharp spices. The body is a little light, especially given the nose. The spices almost burn on the tounge, with a metallic finish. I don't get much pumpkin, only spice and a white sugar sweetness as it warms. Needs more body, but still a very nice seasonal treat.

Intoxicating aroma, spices, pumpkin, not overwhelming. It's a nice reminder the Halloween is around the corner. Taste just like eating freshly baked pumpkin pie. Utterly smooth and refreshing. The spices are perfectly balanced. Not bitter in the end, which is a continuation of a subtle and flavorfull beer.
