We did a blind taste test between this beer and other pumpkin ales to determine which one is the best pumpkin ale for the season. The beers were Shipyard Pumpkinhead, Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat, Buffalo Bill’s America’s Original Pumpkin Ale, Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale, and New Belgium Pumpkick.

Most delicious beer i’ve ever had, a normal but very good beer taste with a hint of almost pumpkin pie flavor, simialer to the smell only the smell has a much stronger pumpkin pie smell, Not a very strong Ale flavor at all, and not a very strong beer flavor it tastes like it’s 2% alcahol when its realy 5%, further more the smoothest beer ive ever had it runs about 7 bucks for a 6 pack so its a bit expensive but other than that perfect.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Bottle pours a nice amber color with a very small head that quickly disappears. The beer leaves no lacing and carbonation seems low. Obvious pumpkin flavor tastes like a mix between a fruit/weisse beer and an ale. An OK beer for the pumpkin/halloween season.

This beer pours very little head and what’s there dissipates quickly. It is very light and refreshing with some sweetness and obviously pumpkin, but very mild doses of both and an even more subtle hint of cinnamon. It finishes clean. By itself it was underwhelming but I can imagine it would be great paired with spicy food or on a hot day.

spicy aroma, tastes of pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, little bit of cinnamon. Spices were present but not overpowering. Appearance is nice and orange and slightly opaque. Taste isn’t huge but the pumpkin is definetly there, would drink this again.

Strong, spicy, pumpkin smell. Amber in color with white head. Tastes like a pumpkin air freshener. Very spicy taste, somewhat acidic. A lingering aftertaste. I would not order this beer again.

golden amber color. Aroma of citrus, and spice. (no pumpkin) Pours light body, tastes of wheat and light pumpkin flavor not overly spiced with nutmeg.

Overall, this beer smelled of pumpkin, but really tasted watery. I was expecting more of a pumpkin taste.

Bottle. Appearance: Medium caramel color with medium opacity, almost no head with a good pour. The smell is slight, with hints of nutmeg. Smell slightly like a dentist office. Taste: ewww! I hardly ever have a beer that I don’t like but, this would be one of them. Probably just not my cup of tea. Real mediciney taste, too much fizz, and, well just bad.

This is the first spiced brew I’ve had. I had little hopes for such beers but am pleasantly surprised by the subtelties in this beer. The cloves and ciniman really come through but do not overpower. Mouthfeel and aroma are a little weak. I’d like to try more spiced beers like this.
