this is one of my favorite pumpkin ales. With a smooth, sweet taste and spicy but soft smell, I can’t get enough.

Very tasty initally, but kind of faded for me and hit a plateau. Definitely smells like pumpkin pie. Tastes of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. It had a little metallic taste about half way through. Little to no lacing. I liked Saranac’s much better. This is definitely better than Blue Moon’s Pumpkin Ale though.

Not much flavor for a pumpkin ale. A bit flat compared to other brands. No smell of pumpkin either. Drinkable but not as good as other brands on the market with pumpkin. I would not try it again.

Color is amber, orange with the smell of Pumpkin spice, just as advertized. You can defiantly taste the pumpkin spice, and maybe a bit of ginger. Not an overpowering flavor, I didn’t mind it.

Nice for a once a year novelty. I thought that the taste doesn't back up the aroma. And, I was looking for better/more mouth feel.

Bottle to Lager glass, pours a brownish color. The head is almost non existent after maybe 2 minutes. Has a pretty good smell of pumpkin. The taste is also of pumpkin but is somewhat odd. Not very carbonated at all. It was a decent beer overall, I probably won’t buy it again however.

Pours an nice yellow with a quickly dissolving head. Smells like cloves and cinnamon. Tastes like a metallic pumpkin pie. Finish is about the same as licking a penny. Not worth trying.

big pumpkin spice overlapping mild caramel aroma. dark orange color with good clarity. no head at all. heavy syrupy sweetness, with pumpkin spice stealing the show. tastes underattenuated Not much carbonation. drying astringency lingers. I do like pumpkin beers, and this was one that turned me on to the style. Not bad, but not very quaffable.

My favorite pumpkin ale. I was surprised to see such a low rating from everyone, since I really enjoyed this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
