Spiced seasonal pumpkin flavor. Good solid bodied ale, pumkin and spice on the nose as expected, cinnamon not too overpowering which I donít like, nice orange to copper brown hue, good for the style and season.

A nice looking beer. Orange/copper with a thick white head. Aroma is mildly malty. Flavor hit me like a truck and I donít mean in a good way. Mostly alcoholic, a little pumpkin, a little spice. Some chlorine. Just too much for me. I had to recheck the bottle to make sure I didnít get an old bottle from another year if there is such a thing.

Boutip (4738) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2004
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a medium head with below average retention. Aroma is quite spicy (probably some cinnamon and the pumpkin) with some malt also noticeable. Taste is also quite spicy with cinnamon being the most recognisable spices with some pumpkin on the side. Not bad but I wouldnít drink a whole lot of this either.

WHolly unimpressive. Little taste and what taste existed was just mildly spicy and just entirely boring

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.
