bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Aroma of pie spices, especially clove. Slightly hazy amber color with a quickly disappearing head. Starts with clove, hit of carbonation, finishes with clovey veggie flavor. Clove persists. Interesting. At least it is not squash.

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 14, 2011
A: The beer pours a rather pale orange/amber color with a short live off-white head. S: Tart apple cider mixed with garbage and some pie spices. A pretty good summary of the aromas on this beer. Quite watery with a touch of straw, maybe some lemons. T: Flavor is better, but not good. Some bread and malt sweetness with a little spice flavor. There’s also a strong tea and bad apple cider flavor. M: Very light, watery, with medium carbonation. O: Not nearly as awful as I feared, but not good.

Hmmm, not the worlds best pumpkin beer. Pours an amber color with very little head. I smell some lagerish aromas and some spices. No real pumpkin in the nose. Flavor has some pumpkin pie spice, light malt and some grassiness. Not so good.
