2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light orange body with a light tan head. Aroma is pumpkin pie. Flavor is fairly mild hops, topped by pumpkin, nutmeg and allspice. Nice, but nothing you’d ever have a hankering for.

A very nice spiced ale. I have had both this and New Holland’s Ichabod and prefer this. The flavors blended nicely and this beer goes extremely well with cake donuts. I look forward to this beer every fall.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very spiced, pumkin pie nose and a thin white head. Thin body and a lot of carbonation held this one back from being very good. Allspice, mace, bready malt, and pumpkin hide behind a wall of fizz. Very spicey with a tasty yet short lived finish.

This really wasn’t too bad. Most beers that try to put some wierd fruit or vegatable it it come out gross, but this one actually tastes like pumpkins. It could use a little less carbonation and more maltiness though. It is what it it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite spicy with a good malty consistency. Unfortunately, it’s overly spicy with a lack of good pumpkin flavor. A decent, drinkable pumpkin beer, but would have like much more of a pumpkin flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2006 Quite a good pumpkin ale; dry and clean with lots of nutmeg and spice on the tongue. Tastes more like cold liquid pumpkin pie than a beer, though some nice malt qualities underlie.

Dark gold to copper color, large bubbles around the edge. Very spicy aroma and taste (nutmeg and cinnamom maybe?) Spice sticks around through the lingering finish.
