I havnít tasted many pumpkin beers that Iíve liked a whole lot, but this one is actually decent. The aroma and flavor are pleasant with a nice mixture of spices and nutmeg. This pumpkin ale is more understated than others, thankfully. Itís quite drinkable but only the balance really stands out.

Interesting brew, but it didnít quite measure up to my expectations. Very dry feel in the mouth with an overload of spice. I ws generous on my rating, but this will be my one and only try.

An orangish brown with a pretty foamy head. Has a nice spicy taste to it with a mild sweet hint of pumpkin and maybe some cinnamon. Very smooth and refreshing to drink.

For some reason, this is one of my favorites. Itís one of those beers that goes perfect on a Sunday afternoon on a crisp, sunny fall day. Full of cinnamon, clove and pumpkin spices. Delicious.

Nutmeg, nutmeg, nutmeg. Pours a light amber color with a miniscule head. Lots of nutmeg aroma with a hint of pumpkin and hops. Essentially, this reminds me of BMC swill with a darker color and a few tablespoons of nutmeg. This one could stand some malt complexity to counterbalance the nutmeg bite. Unbalanced, thin and hard to drink.

Aroma of pumpkin spices with a slight yeastiness. Body is a bit watery with a strong spice finish. Flavor is thin with a slight cinnamon bite and a lack of any discernable pumpkin.

Pours a light amber with 1/4 inch head. Head quickly disperses. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, and toothpaste... yes, toothpaste. Taste is heavy on the pumpkin and nutmeg. Aftertaste mixes pumpkin and hops. Body is watery, but with the heavy pumpkin taste, I donít think I could handle a full bodied version. Overall, this beer isnít for me. I wanted to try this seasonal brew for a different taste experience, and thatís exactly what I got. Unfortunately, this is the first beer Iíve tasted in a long time that I really havenít liked at all. The beer itself isnít brewed poorly; my personal preference is just in a different direction. Itís always fun to try something new, though!

First rating in like a year, its good to be back. Anyhoo I know I should go all Beer Snob and hate on this cuz its Pyramid, but no dice...I dig it. Aroma reminded me of Ben n Jerrys Oatmeal ice cream mixed with pumpkin, which needless to say is pretty bomb. It grabs your palate firmly but not like its trying to prove anything...much in the way I imagine Alec Baldwin shakes hands. This beer is like college one-night stands: not pretty but still makes me happy and I want like 20 of em...which I can do since this bitch is only 5.2%. Maybe Iím a sucker for diggin Pyramid (I like Purple Haze too) but tis the season for some friggin pumpkin ale and I can knock these back all night and have a good time doin it. Sure its no PumpKing, but what is?

Quite spicy with a good malty consistency. Unfortunately, itís overly spicy with a lack of good pumpkin flavor. A decent, drinkable pumpkin beer, but would have like much more of a pumpkin flavor.
