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.

great pumpkin and spice aromas upon opening. pours orange brown. taste just like pumpkin pie but with more spice. somewhat watered down but very smooth drinkability.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

Basically agreed with the last reviewer; very nice nose, full of sweet spices, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, but rather lacking on flavor. Practically no hops, and no aftertaste. I remember thinking the taste to be rather transparent; excellent aroma, but none of that aroma transfers into the flavor of the beer. It’s rather light and easy drinking, but the pumpking flavor doesn’t come through as well as does say the Wild Onion Pumpkin Ale (still my fave pumpkin ale).

so it might not be very hoppy or even carbonated but the spicy aroma and the overall flavor work for what its trying to do. i just needed some whipped cream to top it off, would buy again.
