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.

Initial impression when pouring - looked like pumpkin. Very pleasant taste, hints of pumpkin and cinnamon.

Smells of pumpkin, spices, rubber and vomit...seriously. Tiny, fizzy head with bubbles filling the glass. Rich, amber color and, at first taste, not so bad. Full, spicy flavor...can definitely taste the pumpkin and pices but the aftertaste is RANK! Like "chewing on a pen" said one friend. Glad I tried it, but ewwwww. Not again.

Wonderful pumpkin ale that actually has balance pumpkin spice flavors and bitter ale elements. This is one of the better pumpkin ales I’ve had, right up there with DogFish Head.

Not too shabby, but not quite what I expected. Poured from a bottle, quite thin...hazy orange color. Spicy notes, and a crisp, pumpkin flavor finish.
