WOW!! first pumpkin beer I have had. Aroma jumps right out at you with cinnamon and cloves and I can see those little red hot candies that I used to get as a kid!! Bottle poured a cloudy gold with a small head and good lacing. This is a cool beer to get once in a while for friends to try but I dont think I would be getting it very often,, not bad, but WOW!

The smell is pretty bad, so it starts off weak. The taste is ok, but nothing really happening in it for me. The pumpkin is very heavy and at the front if you like that style. Much, much better fall beers I would have before this one again.

An ordinary pale ale, with an orangey color, and some actual flavor of pumpkin as well as spices added to pumpkin pie -- allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. The sweetness of the spice clashes with the hoppier than average, flatter brew. The effect fails completely. The pumpkin flavored beer might have some chance with a sweeter, less hopped brew. Points for the orange color and an E for effort.

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.

Orange with decent head. Very weak aroma of pumpkin and spices. WAtery feel, and mushy pumpkin flavor, cinammon and malt. No bitterness at all, empty finish. Not one that i would repeat.

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.
