"Very enjoyable pumpkin ale. Poured a nice amber color. Could taste the spices and some pumpkin flavor, unlike others that i have had where the pumpking flavor overruns the beer. Over all good beer "

A balanced approach with the spices and pumpkin. Could have a little more pumpkin kick to it. Overall a good medium bodied pumpkin ale.

Well balanced and sweet. A tasty novelty that holds its own. Pretty, moderately complex, and substantial enough to hold its own.

Ok, so this might be a bit biased because I love pumpkin ales and I also love Dogfish head ales, but this beer rocks. Pumpkin and spice in the nose, and a great pumpkin flavor. Seriously, make more of this.

rusty brownish color, smells like allspice and nutmeg and slightly yeasty. as you would expect, tastes of pumpkin pie, with nutmeg, allspice, clove, etc. it manages to balance these flavors with traditional beer essance. unlike shipyard pumpkinhead wich tastes like crappy pumpkin pie with watery beer mixed in with it.

12 oz bottle. Copper-orange beer, crystal clear, thin white head. Nice sweet and spicy aroma, nutmeg and allspice dominate. Sweet malts in back, bread and spome pumpkiny character as well. Flavour is well balanced, sweet toffee, toast, caramel with strong warming spices. Lingering spiciness and a bit of alcoholic warming. As it warms a nice pudding-like malt complexity with white grape sweetness comes out.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2008 Bottled. Almost a glowing orange color. Huge nutmeg nose, possibly a hint of pumpkin and cinnamon as well. Lots of spice upon sipping. Excellent spice brew. If you like nutmeg in a beer, this is a good one to try.

This year DFH hit it right on. This is perhaps the best Punkin Ale this year. A great recover over the 2004 tap one I had in DE. The spices were well balance and it was great after mowing the lawn or right next to the bed on a cool autumn night. Still do not open a meal with it because the spice will set the meal off.

Brown orange body with a sweet brown sugar aroma w. spices. I could not drink more than one or 2 of these at a sitting as the brown sugar can become cloying. I prefer Buffalo Bill’s and Sea Dog’s version, though this Dogfish Head’s can be enjoyable in small doses.
