UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 Always an avid Dogfish Head fan, I was excited to try out their twist on the pumpkin ale. After pouring into glass, the aroma mainly consisted of sweetness, with a tiny spice hint to it. Once touching the palate, the spiciness kicked in a bit more, with more of a crisp, light taste to the pumpkin side of things. A decent pumpkin ale, but I enjoy other Dogfish works much more.

This is a unique beer and one of the best, if not the best, spiced beers Iíve had. The aroma is spicy and sweet. The pumpkin is noticeable. It pours orange with a decent but not lingering creamy head. Flavorwise, I experience a definite pumpkin with lots of spices. You notice a bitterness that comes from the spices sure, but definitely the pumpkin as well, maybe the skin. Iím almost reminded of the same bitterness that comes from an orange rind or something - but savory, not citrusy or sweet. Body is medium to full and finish is smooth. All in all, I was impressed and I thought the spices were well-blended. I would only want this beer if I was expecting something mighty in flavor and lots of spice. I wouldnít want this as a crisp, light beer. Good work dogfish!

[Bottle] Has a very unique aroma but the punpkin was very faint. Can smell the nutmeg and cloves and a strong malt nose. Dark ruby gold color thiswas a easy drinking beer with a lot of complex flavors. Not easy to get them all. A good beer for watching the Oscars

This beer offers an aroma infused with nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. It is a dark cloudy rose colored solution that produces only minor quantities of head and lacing. This carbonated beer offers a taste nutmeg and pumpkin to the taste buds. All that is left in its wake is a mild spice taste.

clear amber body with tiny little white ring, tart & floral spice nose, bitter and tangy, very complex attack on the tongue, spices in the background, fresh and leafy, earthy veggies, fruity pear and citrus notes, dry finish that hints at roast and leaves a banana taste for minutes after a swig,

I get the feeling Iím missing something here, but I just wasnít into it. LOTS of flavor, including spice, pumpkin pie, and possible some citrus? Not my favorite style anyway. If you like veggie beers I bet its great, but not for me.

small lacey head, orangey. Spicey cinammon, spicey,allspice, nutmeg, some maltness spice chest, chia tea with some hop bitterness. Drying, very vegatable taste. No expiry date. Gourdy taste.

Depending on your tastes, this might not be for you. Dogfish head is known for taking that extra step toward flavour, they do not skimp here at all! This brew has ALMOST too much flavour, but it is quite good. Iím always excited to try something new from them. Nice dark colour, and decent head. Excellent aroma, Iíd go so far as to say itís mouth-watering! Na Zdrowie!

I think I actually prefer Smuttyís Pumpkin beer. This is a bit TOO spiced. Itís got all the requisite flavor, and a nice sweet backbone, but itís not my style. Might be yours, though.

Pours a rich amber. Aroma is a nice slice oí Momís pumpkin pie. Mmmmm... Nice head with clinging lace. Oh wow. This is a DAMN good beer. Like a slice of pumpkin pie, it has all the necessary ingredients: nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon. Oh yeah, this is GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD. And take it from someone who doesnít like this brewer: Try it. It is THE BEST pumpkin ale Iíve ever had.
