I love winterbrews - filled with their complex flavors of spices and malts. To me, this falls in the winterbrew category as the pumpkin spice is forfont - you can really taste it. Clearly a change from a few years ago as pumpkin flavors were more subtle and I seemed to enjoy it more back then. Still, its a nice beer for those you like spice.

There is definatly a strong pumkin flavor, a little bit of AllSpice/Nutmeg charecter, but I just couldn’t finish the bottle. Maybe I just don’t like pumkin beers.

This IS a pumpkin ale. The only thing I found abit lacking was pumpkin flavor---but I LOVE the pie. Spices are perfect. A great fall brew!

WOW! I have always wanted to try a pumpkin ale, but this exceeded my expectations. The beer has a wonderful pumpkin aroma. The beer itself seems to have a nice blend of pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon flavors. It is virtually bottled pumpkin pie. While this is an especially excellent Halloween and Holiday brew (I imagine it would go well with turkey) it is actually a brew that can be enjoyed anytime, with a beer here or there.

Decent brew beneath the pumpkin flavors, with a nice malt/hop flavor. Too much cinnamon though as the ’hotness’ tends to get in the way of the pumpkin flavors. Not bad.

Aroma of nutmeg dominates. Nice subtle flavor of pumpkin and the finish of pumpkin spices and hops. Best pumpkin ale out there.

pumpkin flavored anything is good for me.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2003 Minus the pumpkin, this would be a very bland beer. Doesn't taste as good as it smells.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2003 A nice orange color with a thick head. Smells like pumpkin pie! It says it is brewed with 'spices': I think I can detect both cinnimon and nutmeg, among others.
