Bottle. Pours clear golden/amber with a small off white head. Sweet alcohol, nutmeg and ginger spices, and Budweiser. Thin bodied, pretty bland, nice semi-roasty sweetness. Being generous I would call this average.

Tap @ Papago. Spice aroma that really seemed dull. Orange body with no head. Beer had a ordinary spice and malt texture. Odd beer felt like I was lift a weight instead of glass.

Smells and looks great. Aromas are muy spicy... cinnamon, pumpkin pie, mildly grainy... color is a great deep reddish amber with a nice head that doesn’t stick around too long. Flavor is great up front, a sweet pumpkin pie, but then falls apart a little bit at the end. As the warmth of the alcohol takes over, there is a mildly astringent flavor that isn’t quite right. That said, the flavor up front is quite nice and more than makes up for the problems at the end...

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

04 Bottle (yeah its old - I’ll 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.

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

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 15, 2005
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 (5884) - 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.
