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.

adnielsen (10089) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Tasted from a 12 ounce bottle purchased in Denver, Colorado. Orange appearance like a Belgian Ale. Citrus-y, weirdly spiced beer. Not a good Pumpkin beer.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Looks nice. Deep, golden, hazy ale. Smells like fresh-baked pumpkin pie. Smooth, malty, spicy flavor, but too thin for me. Watery mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Poured a medium hazy amber color with a smaller white head. Spices and lighter pumpkin on the nose. Lighter tastes vs. the aromas. Fizzy body. Middle of the road as far as pumpkin ales go.

crwills brought this one and thanks. Cinammon and nutmeg is pronounced in a lager, orange with a white head. Astringent and fizzy carbonation.

The strong aroma of pumpkin and ginger was really promising on this one, but the flavor really didn’t deliver. With a little more pumkpin flavor and a little less carbonation I think it would have been a "must-buy" every year around Halloween. As it stands though it was like a lot of fruit beers I have tried where the bark was better than the bite. I am going to try to hunt down a Pumpkin Stout!

Thin, slightly sour, this is just a trainwreck of a beer. Pumpkin pie spice is blunt.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2004
Brown-orange beer that pours with a nice lasting beige head. Smells like a pumpkin pie. Good carbonation. Tastes very sweet fading to a medium-long finish that tastes of clove and cinnamon. This is like drinking a pumpkin pie, and I have to say that as strange as that sounds I like it.

3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Bright and murky soft orange glowing color with a small white head, but an overall attractive appearance. Nose is pumpkin-soap and potpourri, craft-store or bathroom store smells... perfumy oranges, ginger, apple, pumpkin and overripe peaches. Dear lord it tastes just downright horrible... like sucking on designer soap, the stuff that you’re not supposed to use as soap... waxy, syrupy and soapy, this is pretty god damn disgusting... end of rating.
