Lackluster. The aroma is off, smells like a cheap beer with some slight notes of pumpkin spice. Light bodied and watered down. Again, lackluster.

Crystal clear orange brew, few bubbles. Virtually no head. Heavy spice aroma, cloves, all-spice and something strange. Pretty flat brew, smooth, very clove taste with notes of pear and apple. No pumpkin detected here. Donít think I can finish this one.

Fizzy orange, with a thin head that absolutely disappears. Weird pumpkin pie aroma, with nutmeg being the major aroma. Tangy, but otherwise rather flavorless. Just as well, as Iím not much of a pumpkin pie fan. The aroma had me thinking "drain pour" Tastes more like a cider than a beer.

Bitter smelling, loose head, opaque. Not impressed at all, actually disappointed. Iíve tasted less bitter ESBís. No significant or nor dominant flavors, whatever is there is overpowered by the bitter water-down taste.

Thin, slightly sour, this is just a trainwreck of a beer. Pumpkin pie spice is blunt.

Sorry guys, but I have to say "Only in America". Geez, what's our equivalent? Macadamia Nut or Prickly Pear beer (please note the absence of the ridiculous reference to Koala Bear or Kangaroo beer as there is no such thing as Turkey or Buffalo beer either). Anyway, beer should be beer right? No pumpkin, no mashed potato in gravy, no corn chowder or no grits and beans. Add this to some soup stock and you have dinner.

Tastes like nutmeg. Smells like nutmeg. I fricken HATE nutmeg. The nutmeg is way too overpowering, although I can also sense a clove note in there...

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2005 I was not very impressed with this beer at all. That being said I havenít tried many of the spice/herb style beers before so Iím not a good reference point. This tasted just like drinking pumpkin pie which was pretty revolting to me. The cinnamon was overpowering at times and I expected more beer attributes in this as well. I wonít be drinking this one again any time soon. This beer is the worst Iíve ever had...

An awful 12oz offering. I have no idea what the hell this was supposed to be. Light spicing, no flavor and a bitter edge that was offensive. Nothing about this beer says that it is a pumpkin or drinkable. Drain poured.

Well,....smells great at first whiff... no head whatsoever.....then it gets worse. cloudy urine-coloured, not really even orangish, any pumpkinivity this aspires to is lost in a tart, sour, acidic, hypercarbonated mess. poured it out after 3/4.
