I did not enjoy this one. Kind of skunky. It indeed had that cinnamon-pumpkin flavor, but it’s 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 doesn’t have much going on. I have to admit being biased against this beer from the beginning, the idea of pumpkin and beer just didn’t seem to go together. This beer is better than I expected, but the flavor combo still doesn’t work. Wouldn’t have it again.

Suprise...it’s orange colored. Actually I’m 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 doesn’t seem that the base is of very good quality. It’s as if they’re counting on the pumpkin flavor to carry this all the way, but it really doesn’t.

Most delicious beer i’ve 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 it’s 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.

Initially rated 19Nov2002. Average beer. Has a nice orange color, but sorry guys, I don’t think it’s from the pumpkin. The added spices dominate the aroma, though I detected a hint of vanilla. A relatively thin-bodied beer, particularly when it’s served too cold. 55-60 degrees F is probably ideal. Little hopping is evident, either aromatically or bittering. Spices dominate the flavor, though at warmer temperatures pumpkin is indeed evident. Little malt or hop flavor to remind me that I am indeed drinking BEER. Some sourness and unpleasant aromatics. The carbonation is perfect. Beer is bottle-conditioned. The head is fluffy and long-lasting, and provides much-need effervescence to break up the strong spice flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 nice retained head on a brightly color orange body..tha alcohol and pumpkin spice kind of clash in the aroma combining in a sort of disgusting like way..I love pumkin pie..and this beer would probably pair quite well with it..However, on its own, theres just too much spice..the hops and the spice clash at the end..during the whole experience, the aroma doesn't go away either and that doesn't help..Its all novelty, and nothing too good
