Smells like a freshly-opened stick of Dentyne. Pasty, moderately sweet, spicy. Decent malting. Not my cup of tea.

04 Bottle (yeah its old - Iíll rerate with a fresh one if I can). Dark orange pour. Earthy pumpkin aroma with spices. A little doughy too. Less pumpkin in the flavor tho, with a lot more allspice and nutmeg. Perhaps the muted pumpkin flavor comes from its age.

Draft, Mad Mex in State College. Low aroma, nice amber-red color, a bit spicier than I expected.

Nate (3759) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2005
On draught at Point Brugge Cafe, Pittsburgh. Spicy pumpkin pie aroma, with musky fruit and pumpkin pulp. Sweet brown sugar and light fruity hops. Clear amber liquid with thin white lacing head. Watery body, mild carbonation, warming alcohol. Starts dry with pumpkin pie spices, light astringent bitterness. Light citrus tang and fruit tannin. After has some dry bitterness, light acidity and spice notes

Bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a dissipating head. It smells basically like a hopped pumpkin pie. The flavor has obvious pumpkin and cinnamon, accompanied by nutmeg and cloves, all in the midst of a balanced maltiness. There is a nicely warm finish, too. I may drink this with Thanksgiving dinner.

PorterPounder (5656) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2005
Market Square Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper color with no head whatsoever. Aroma of potpourri and Christmas spices with a hint of pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is quite potent, tastes stronger than the 7% ABV. Has some spicy notes, some candied sugar notes and some belly warming brandy-like alcohol notes. Pick up some sweet cake-mix like doughy notes. Sticky, thick mouthfeel. Best rendition of a pumpkin ale yet.

westcoastbias (12) - panama city, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2005
Interesting spicy beer. Expecting a more distinct punkin flavor, but spices are there. Unfortunately it came in a four pack as one was enough, but definetley worth the try.

12oz - Aroma is clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pours a clear orange with litle head and lacing. Flavor is spicy, yet not very flavorfull. Nutmeg, clove, and maltyness does not recover form lack of character. Palate is not really there. Iím not really a fan of the style, but it isnít very interesting in any case.

Very little aroma, a lot less than expected. A spicy potpourri scent. Not much flavor either. Maybe itís too cold. But Iíve had pumpkin beers that are overwhelmingly gross.
