I opened this one on Halloween. This was the second pumpkin beer I have tried. Good aroma, flavor was decent but I am still looking for one that really reminds me of pumpkin pie. The spices were evident.

Bottle. Pours a deep, ruddy amber color with just a touch of haze perhaps. Fair whitish head which leaves a solid bit of lacing behind. Aroma is pumpkin, slight bits of pie spices. Lighter bodied, tending to run a bit watery at times which is a little dissapointing. Flavors of pumpkin and spice blend together quite nicely with a very solid pumpkin presence and a nicely done job with spices. You get the tingly spice feeling on the palate but it doesn’t overwhelm. Decently done job.

The body is a dark amber with a frothy off white head. The aroma has nutmeg, vanilla and pumpkin. Very much like a fresh pie and more in your face than many pumpkin beers. The taste is raw pumpkin with some light spices of nutmeg. There is also a light tinge of cinnamon and zucchini. a decent pumpkin beer. Thanks for the bottle, MrFacto.

On Tap @ Elysian- Pours a clear rich orange color. Nice off white head, laces well. Aroma of nutmeg, tarragon, pumpkin "guts". Flavor is pumpkin, cinnamon, other spices, sweet dry finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Ruby color, thin head and modate lacing. Nose of light malts, ginger, clove and some noticable pumpkin. The flavor is very fibrous like pumpkin pie, lightly hopped though. Nice sweetness fills the rest of the beer. This is pleasant. The finish is gourdy and balanced. Very nice.

Bottle. Pumpkin colored pour. A very nice aroma of pumpkin pie. A nice pumpkin flavor and the other spices come through pretty nicely. Pretty average body, like an ESB. I rather enjoyed this, my first pumpkin ale.

Had this on tap at Tangletown....according to the bartender they screwed up this batch and it’s not quite as strong as usual. I really enjoyed it though...typical Pumpkin Ale, but very smooth. I actually wanted another when I was done, not the case with most spiced beers.

Bottle pours a slightly hazy deep amber, sturdy off-white foamy head, very sticky lacing, with soft carbonation.   Aroma is amazingly similar to fresh Pumpkin Pie and Dolfin Hot Masala Chocolate.   However, the flavor is quite fleeting.   Minor Pumpkin Pie notes, but no other spices to back it up.   Light body, average mouthfeel.   Finishes too quick IMHO.   Had it been a bit more spiced I think this would have been top notch.   Last years was a better.

The aroma of this one was crammed with caramel almost butterscotch in aroma. Also, a little alcohol in the aroma. Nice body, it was a little overcarbed at first. Aftertaste was bitter after a while. I can’t get over the aroma, awsome.
