Decent copper color, light head. Strong spicy aroma allspice, and cloves. Taste is awful. Horrible spiciness runs rampant over any malt background that may be there. Tastes like sucking on a spice bag after having steeped it in something. The question is can the finish redeem this beer??? The finish is pure acid reflux, no kidding. Absolutely foul terrible beer.

Pumpkin pie spice over a fairly sweet caramely malt base. Not my cup of beer.

One of the worst ales I’ve ever tasted. The wife concurs. Interesting in its awfulness.

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. Don’t 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 I’m 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. I’ve tasted less bitter ESB’s. 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...
