Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 24, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2004 Copperish and clear. Pleasant aroma. Flavor is okay, considering Iím not a pumpkin beer lover. Not recommended for those who donít like Pumpkin, but probably loved by those who do.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Copper with a small head that leaves quickly. Spots of lace are about. Strong pumpkin aroma that is spicy. Almost another fruit is present, but is not strong enough to differentiate from the other aromas. Flavors are strong in the pumpking department once again and there is lots of spice prevelant. Bitter roast and caramel malts show through. Pretty thick body, chewy even. Finishes spicy.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Pours a dark orange with small off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, ginger and allspice. Flavor is spicy, and bitter. Cinnamon, apples, pumpkins, allspice, and nutmeg. Palate is astringent, hoppy, and dry. A little too spicy for me.

pauliefrog99 (302) - FLINT, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2004
Poured an orange with a white bubbly head that clinged to the glass. Spicy cinnamon aroma. Nice malty pumpkin spice taste. Good stuff.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Pours an amber hue with a small slight/off-white head. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, roses???? Very similar aroma to anchors christmas brews. Flavors of pumkins, malt, spice.....As it warms it gets a little better, but nothing fantastic. This is the best spiced ale I have had yet.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Clear, reddish color body with a smooth, frothy head. Full bodied with a nice, spicy flavor and more of a pumpkiny finish. Exact opposite of the last Pumpkin Ale I drank. A little alcohol warming. The spices in the flavor remind me of that in a pumpkin pie (where itís usually hard to taste the pumpkin in anyway). Very good beer.

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Orange in color with a thin whiteish head. Spices(nutmeg and cinamon)and some pumpkin in the aroma. More emphasis on the nutmeg and cinamon in the taste than the pumpkin, but the pumpkin is present. There is a mild burnt taste in there though. A clean finish but just a bit of lingering though.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2004
12 oz. bottle. Sweet, spicy aroma, with a decent touch of pumpkin. Nice, deep orange color with minimal white head. Spicy, slightly pumpkiny flavor. Not very drinkable. Not really a big fan, in general.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Poured light gold amber, aroma was very minimal, just a little bit of spice and vanilla,pumpkin taste is distinguishable but not bold, cinimmon and nutmeg certainly evident, anice enough ale, but I wish someone would make one that fuller and bolder

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2004
bottle: Short lived white head on a clear medium amber body. Allspice & nutmeg take center stage at first. Perfumey, hairspray alcohol aroma comes next. Very light caramel malt, pumkin, & only hints of cinnamon. Well balanced, very low spice flavors, but cinnamons is there. Some honey notes, allspice, & low fruitiness. Finish is on the dry side, has some alcohol, cidery alcohols notes, w/ a nutmeg & allspice aftertaste. Lighter body, not full, medium carbonation, well hidden alcohol given the nose; smooth. Not a bad pumpkin ale, but Iím still not a big fan of them.
