2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had this in a small glass from a tap at CBC. It came to the table with very little head left. The color was very nice, a kind of copper-dark honey look. The aroma was slightly fruity, but I didnít get much trace of pumpkin in it. The palate was fairly full, carbonation OK. The flavor was rather íbeeryí but rich and warm, with some fruitiness and a moderate hop tang--but, again, little real pumpkin taste. It was very smooth, a nice tail with no nasty dregs. OK overall, but something of a disappointment. If theyíre going to call this a pumpkin, they need more pumpkin in it. Iíll take a Dogfish Head Pumpkin over this.

on tap at gabf. Smells like a pumpkin pie with buttery graham cracker crust, and tastes like it too! clearly going for the pumpkin pie flavor, this beer includes many pie spices, nice hefty palate, and great malt presence. a true delight.

Had this one on draught at the brewpub in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Hazy medium orange pour with a thin white head, sweet candy apple nose with some cider, pumpkin and clove. Spicy finish. Good!

Sampled with Stegosaurus during our second Boston Tour. Served at Cambridge brewing. Coppery clear pour. Some pumpkin in the aroma. Taste was watery with mild spice and pumpkin flavors fighting their way through this lack luster brew.

Delightful and refreshing beer for the Autumn season. Spices and malty sweetness greet the tounge. Admittedly a bit light and simple in composure, this beer is great to have on a night in Cambridge or to sip on while by a fire.

iím not huge on these beers, however this one was pretty good. at the brewpub, which nobody in the kendall square had any idea where it was located. not as bold as most pumkin ales bosting big clovey flavors but more suble with a brown beer feel and light hopping. quite thin but easy to drink and unoffensive.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 I hated this last year, but itís excellent now. Lots and lots of pumpkin flavor, with good spice and hops, and balanced malt. A joy to drink.

Just called the "Great Pumpkin Ale" at the brewpub; seems to be referring to Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin (right?). Sweet potato/yam scent (yum). Translucent light orange color. Mellow, mellow spices. Almost zero head. Really good after taste. But could be sweeter.
