Hazy watery amber color with a small white head. Aroma of mace and allspice. An unusual spicy bland taste.

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.

Hazy, yellow - orange pour from bottle. Cinnamon and nutmeg on the nose. Watery taste of harvest spices and fruit, but not much pumpkin itself. Liked the smell, but not much else.

12oz bottle. clear orange pour with a small white head. gelatinous texture with a light body. typical pumpkin and spice aroma. flavor is a bit corny and grainy. some pumpkin and spice in there but nothing interesting.

Reviewed from notes. Pours a copper brown color with a very thin off white head. The nose brings a ridiculously overloaded amount of spice. Taste brings ever so slight hints of caramel and sweetness sitting behind ginormous amounts of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, clove, and probably every other spice man has ever found. Way too spicy and a bit thin overall. Poor drinkability. The epitome of what not to do with a spiced beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-20-2010

Poured a pumpkin-ish cloudy amber with no real head to speak of. The initial whiff from the bottle was very pumpkin smelling, but even after pouring all in a tulip that smell is dilluted. There is hints of pumpkin, with spice overpowrering it, but overall really bland and watery. Worst pumpkin beer I have had.

Little to no head when poured. I tried to like it since it was my first spice/herb/vegetable beer but it was just too painful.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 Smell and taste of pumkin pie without the sweetness, thank goodness. Too much spice and clove form me. A style I appear not to like but this may be good example.

Bottle: pours a cloudy, light orange color, aroma of pumpkin which is kinda rare for the pumpkin beers I’ve tried so far since they are usually loaded with some other spice that overpowers everything esle, also has some weaker spice aroma, it actually reminds me a lot of the smell of my grandma’s pumpkin pie, taste is a big letdown, it is watery and thin and and somewhat citrusy. Not worth buying ever again.

bottle. Aroma is very spicy with clove and pumpkin. Average sized fizzy head that fully diminished. Starkly pale amber hue. Flavor is weak but some clove and spicy pumpkin is there. Palate is lively and watery. This beer just plain sucks. I hope I never have to drink this again, buffalo bill you’re a dick.
