This is liquid pumpkin pie, complete with the whipped cream topping. Sharp nutmeg bites right into the aroma. The cinnamon and clove are more evident in the flavor. Turns a lot of people off, but I kinda like it.

I am assuming that the draft version of this beer is 10x better, but with that being said, the bottled version isnt all bad. Smells like a pumpkin pie. Looks reddish orange. Flavor is less pumpkin and more cinnamon and nutmeg. It is very easy to drink and I will probably get some more during the next holliday season just to be festive.

350 ml bottle from Bevmo. Hazy orange with a fizzy white head. Sweet malty pumpkin and spice aroma and taste, but the taste is oddly dull somehow.

( 12oz bottle) Pours very clear light orange. Nose of nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon. Taste is dry, raw pumpkin, and cinnamon. Reminds of Christmas. Lingers with spices and nicely sweet.

Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Aroma has more cinnamon, clove, and spices then the beer itself. These flavors diminish quickly leaving some a sour flavor but not a good one. Pick up Sarnac instead.

This one’s definitely the spiciest smelling pumpkin ale that I’ve had in a while. Nice looking orange (how appropriate) color with little head but plenty of carbonation. Plenty of fizz in the mouth (good?) with strong pumpkin & spicy tastes. Oddly a bit watery. Clean finish with a lingering cinnamon and nutmeg aftertaste. Fun drinking once a year.

Aroma is full cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, pumpkin is subtle though (which is a good thing). This one is just like a nice pumpkin pie but with a slight bitter dry finish. I really like this one but I wouldn't try it again unless it's thanksgiving or something.

PorterPounder (5451) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Dark orange pour with a quickly fading white head, not much lacing. Delicious spicy aroma - pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg perhaps. Same spiciness carries over to the flavor with a little bit of cloves in there as well. Mouthfeel is a tad thin and the spicy flavor fades near the end. Still not a bad novelty beer though.

Sampled from a 12 oz. bottle. Poured mostly clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma was mostly the spices (cloves, et al.) with some malts present as well. The flavor was mostly spicey, with some semi sweet malt and perhaps pumpkin. This was my second attempt at a pumpkin beer and I’m thinking that its just not my style. The aroma of theis one was less offensive than the first.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent copper with good carbonation and off-white lacing. Smells and tastes alright; light and pumpkin spice with an average mouthfeel. More lagerish, so it doesn’t weigh you down (filtered?). Exceeded my expectations.
