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

BMan1113VR (7869) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 8, 2008
Possibly an old bottle. Pours with a fizzy-off-white head that goes away completely in about 30 seconds. Hazy amber bodey with some particles floating around. Pumpkin, cinnamon, clovee, nutmeg, and even mint in the potent aroma. Pretty bitter and even sour spicey taste. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel.

Fin (7682) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2008
Bottle from Jose Pistolas, Philadelphia 17-11-08 Pours a hazy orange amber with no head and no apparent carbonation. The pumpkin is a little syrupy sweet, its good but possible a bit contrived there are spices aplenty, a real spicy nose and a real autumnal feel to it, its fine but just too, too spicy.

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. Pretty full aroma of cinnamon and spices, pumpernickel, faint ginger bread, some pumpkin and mellow sweet dark fruitiness. The carbonation creates and initial punch of harshness that quickly rolls into pumpkin, cinnamon and all spice. By midway smooth mild pumpkin and maltiness give way to another wave of wintery spices and ginger bread. A little out of the can pumpkin feel and a bit heavy on the spices for my taste.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2009
Orange amber.Intensely spicey aroma and flavour, mostly cloves and mace. Caramel malt lends a sugary pumpkinish quality I suppose.

DrSilverworm (6944) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Yellow-orange, mildly hazy appearance. White head quickly fading to minimal. Bubbles on side of glass. Pronounced, strong carbonation. (artificial?) pumpkin aroma, and not much else. Pretty much just watered-down pumpkin. Medium sweet taste. Boring bare-bones pumpkin ale.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2008
bottle pours golden/copper with a thick white head. Aroma of light spices, cinnamon, aroma reminded more of a mix between orange/pumpkin. Taste, malty, sweet. Maybe too sweet for a pumpkin ale. Very weak taste of pumpkin. As with the Buffalo Bill’s Orange Blossom, you get this mix hops/yeast that gives you the impression of drinking a soapy soda. I am still wondering where the pumpkin and the spices went? Just too weak, missing a good kick.

bb (6861) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Bottle. Rich amber beer with a big off-white head. Big pumpkin-pie spice aroma with some backing malt. Astringent malts and pumpkin pie spice flavors. Lighter bodied. Lingering nutmeg, cinnamon, etc

marcus (6773) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Pours orange with a thick beige head and a pumpkin aroma. There is a harsh pumpkin pie flavor with lots of spice. A bit overwhelming.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Bottle courtesy of 5000. Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, some pie qualities. Tastes of pie spice, sweet malt, earthy, some tea, some peppery splashes. Finishes slightly bitter.
