Bottle. Deep orange/amber color with little head. Strong nose of nutmeg, very fresh, some general pumpkin pie spice, and a good bit of actual pumpkin as well-- a nice treat in a pumpkin ale, go figure. Medium body, carbonation seemed a little low, with flavors of all of the above, the nutmeg adding a welcome spicy heat. Manages a sweet pumpkin flavor without being candylike. Wouldnít want to have this all the time, but when those first few 40 degree evenings roll around, this is fine company.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2005 No more nutmeg?!? Why leave it at that? No more allspice! No more cinnamon! No more mace! No more clove! Enough already with the spiced holiday freakiní beers...Itís probably the best of a sorry lot, but Iím done with this gimmick crap! I beg of you...

Bottle. Poured clear amber orange with continues streams of carbonation from the bottome. Head is thin and creamy, dissipating quickly with little head. Fruity and spicy aroma with dominant cinnamon and hints of alcoholic warmth. Very spicy with strong pumpkin flavors, and warmth well-balanced with some hoppy dryness. A solid respresentation of the style.

OUt of a bottle. Aroma spicy, cinnamon and nutmeg. Poured a nice brownish amber with a nice foam head. Flavor was good nothin out of the ordinary for the style. Palate was good also and finish was clean. Overall good.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Holy crap! Itís a smooth, non overwhelming pumpkin beer. Iím so impressed by this offering that Iíll give this "spice" beer over a 3 rating. I wouldnít drink another one, but if I had to choose a best pumpkin beer, this is most deffinately it.

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 Pours reddish brown with small white head. Smells of cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg and sugar. Reminiscent of pumpkin bread. Taste combines pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar and hops to form a pleasant fall brew.

adrian910ss (2410) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Pours a dark orange coppery color with a small sized fading head. Aroma is very spicy and complex. Nutmeg,pumpkin pie mix,cinnamon and spicy baked apple dominate. Taste is spicy as well with pumpkin pie filling dominating. Hints of apple,nutmeg and cinnamon are also present. One of the better pumpkin ales out there. Not your everyday beer, but quite enjoyable.

Terminus (3318) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - SEP 27, 2005
bottle-pours orange with a small white head. big cinnamon, allspice, and faint hops in the aroma. Some toasted malt as well that mimicks baked pie crust. pretty cool! big spicy flavors with cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and light cloves. alcohol is actually detected in the finish, which hurts the beer somewhat. I think it masks the true pumpkin flavors. a spiced beer, but where is the pumpkin?

Draft at Sippin by the River í05. Sorry, but liquid pumpkin pie just doesnít cut it. No more nutmeg in beer, please.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Bottle poured dark amber with a good thick head. Aroma is malt and spice. Flavor is malt, spice and cinnamon. I donít really taste any pumpkin flavor myself but still a good drinkable beer.
