Palatable ale with strong pumpkin and spice flavors to it. I liked it, may not be for everybody.

Imbibed in October 2002. An aroma of pumpkin pie spices. A clear light amber color with a whitish tan head. Flavor consists of pumpkin, spices, and some hoppiness. I enjoyed it but I think the pumpkin style could be improved. Less spice flavor and some maltiness would improve it in my opinion.

I did not enjoy this one. Kind of skunky. It indeed had that cinnamon-pumpkin flavor, but itís not really my style.

Color really is a pumpkinish orange/red. Smells exactly like pumpkin pie, with a touch of sweetness and cloves. Medium sized, quickly dissipating head. Pumpkin is much less present in the flavor than the aroma, but still noticable. Smooth finish. Besides the pumpkin notes, the flavor doesnít have much going on. I have to admit being biased against this beer from the beginning, the idea of pumpkin and beer just didnít seem to go together. This beer is better than I expected, but the flavor combo still doesnít work. Wouldnít have it again.

Suprise...itís orange colored. Actually Iím quite impressed in the accuracy of getting a pumpkin-hued beer. Pumpkin pie aroma, with cinnamon and nutmeg, but also ginger which I found a bit disagreeable. Rather watery, and a weak malt presence; it doesnít seem that the base is of very good quality. Itís as if theyíre counting on the pumpkin flavor to carry this all the way, but it really doesnít.

Most delicious beer iíve ever had, a normal but very good beer taste with a hint of almost pumpkin pie flavor, simialer to the smell only the smell has a much stronger pumpkin pie smell, Not a very strong Ale flavor at all, and not a very strong beer flavor it tastes like itís 2% alcahol when its realy 5%, further more the smoothest beer ive ever had it runs about 7 bucks for a 6 pack so its a bit expensive but other than that perfect.

Aside from the pumpkin and ginger flavor this beer does not have much. The pumpkinness of this beer was a little stronger than I expected.

What happens when you drink Bass ale while eating pumpkin pie? This beer.

Pumpkin pie spice over a fairly sweet caramely malt base. Not my cup of beer.

The aroma of this beer was very appealing - nutmeg and ginger(?), kind of spicy. But that is where it all ends with this beer. It seemed over carbonated and watery. It was similar in flavor to a not-so-sweet ginger ale.
