Basically agreed with the last reviewer; very nice nose, full of sweet spices, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, but rather lacking on flavor. Practically no hops, and no aftertaste. I remember thinking the taste to be rather transparent; excellent aroma, but none of that aroma transfers into the flavor of the beer. It’s rather light and easy drinking, but the pumpking flavor doesn’t come through as well as does say the Wild Onion Pumpkin Ale (still my fave pumpkin ale).

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2004 12oz. bottle: This poured an amber color. It is clear, with maybe a hint of orange to it. There is a fizzy head that dissapates almost instantly. Not getting any lacing from the beer. It definitely smells like a pumpkin pie. The flavor is malty, with a good hit of pumpkin pie spiciness. Fairly crisp and dry taste. I remember this being better years ago, but then it wasn't being contract brewed.

One of the best Pumpkin Ales I’ve ever tried. Extremely well balanced with all the pumpkin pie spices and the crystal malts. Beautiful orange/copper color. Exquisite pumpkin pie aroma. Literally like liquid pumpkin pie!

This bottle was made by Portland Brewing. It’s good, well balanced, but not as deft or stylish as the version made by McAuslan in Montreal, which is the same beer, though it doesn’t say so on the label.
