A nice light spice aroma that has a hint of pumpkin but not too much. This is a pretty tasty pumpkin beer that is light and quite drinkable.

Every year, I try every new pumpkin beer I can easily get my hands on. I donít like pumpkin beer particularly and yet I do this anyway. Is there something wrong w/ me? I say no.
This particular pumpkin ale is a pretty decent one, as far as pumpkin ales go. It is more ale than pumpkin pie and that is a good thing. I like beer better than pumpkin pie. I have beer every single day and pumpkin pie like twice a year. I think this goes for most people around here, call it a hunch. This stuff pours a nice orange amber w/ a thin head of mostly fine bubbles. The nose is a bit of malt, ale yeast and earthy hops. There is a touch of spice but not too much and what I am getting is a very subdued clove but itís really just kind of a general spiciness where you canít pick anything in particular out, which I think works. There is a touch of sweetness here, verging on a little too much, but it is still pretty drinkable overall. The carbonation is gentle and the texture is thick and subdued. I can get behind a bottle or two of this stuff a year, which is probably all I will drink.

Just ate Mahmoud so my taste buds are weaker than usual. Standard red ale with slight pumpkin spice, nothing special

Some decent warm spices on the nose. Light spice on the palate. I donít get the pumpkin at all, if you do then more power to you. Tad watery on finish. Below average pumpkin beer.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Can. Clear orange amber pour with a small sticky white head. Nice aroma of pumpkin, mild cinnamon, and some other spices. Taste is similar but more muted, and this might be a touch on the watery side, but not bad overall.
