Really wierd. I like pumpkin beers, but this one was kinda dry and bland. I’d prefer it to be a bit more spiced out, but overall it was good. I thought it was an original take on the pumpkin ale thing. I wonder if it would taste better when it’s cold outside.

An ordinary amber greets you on the pour. Take a whiff and you’ll be drifting into nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin pie. This actually smells much better than it tastes. The mouth is a mix of the nutmeg, but the hops kind of confuse the issue a bit. A nice nutmeg spice aftertaste says goodbye on the way out. I’d like this with a slice and some whipped cream please.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 Re-Rate 01/16/04: Clear amber, beige head and decent lace. Nose is what you would expect, 'Pumpkin', sweet, hints of malt. Front is sweet, the top light, the finish is dry, acidic, sweet, and drinkable. Ranks #807 on my current 1000 beer master list.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2004 1998 bottle This is an outstanding Pumpkin ale, though i havent had it in a while so its tough to compare it to my current favorite, Empire Pumpkin Ale. It has a nice strong spice aroma that leaves quickly to make room for a medium full body and good hearty pumpkin taste. 2003 bottle Well, either I didnt know good beer 5 years ago, or they just dont brew this like they used to. Probably a mix of both. Whatever the case, this is now a drainpour in my opinion (I poured mine out in bitter disappointment). This beer can be easily replicated by taking club soda and stirring in some sugar, and lots of pumpkin pie spice. Enough said.

A good alternative to Harpoon’s Winter Warmer since Harpoon is not yet distributed on the West Coast.

A mild pumpkin taste, moreso in the aroma and aftertaste. A very nice gimmick and sells well around Halloween. Really, it’s a decent beer that you should try in any season.

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!
