Fatehunter (1414) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours a thin head on a clear dark straw body. The aroma is cinnamon candy and pumpkin. The taste is watery pumpkin and a touch of cinnamon and clove. The texture is thin and fizzy. Itís not offensive, but doesnít taste like much either.

IrishBoy (3900) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 6, 2014
12 oz bottle from World Market, Bakersfield. Nose is light pumpkin, nutmeg, and cloves. Clear amber orange with a medium beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet and spicy pumpkin pie. Not the best pumpkin ale Iíve had but no where near the worst!

slowrunner77 (6163) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
still tastes like the flavor is from a kit, but this is easily the best and least offensive beer Iíve had from them. pours amber orange with a fizzy thin white head that quickly disapates. mouthfeel is a touch thin and prickly, but smoother as it warms. flavor is just what youíd expect from an average pumpkin beer...spices with a little sweet malt and a touch of hops. similar aroma. Bought a 2014 (or who knows, maybe a 2013) as a joke, and damn it was worse than before. Multiple simultaneous drainpours. Way to go IW!

thome50 (1095) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JAN 1, 2014
On tap at Pizza Port on New Years day, for some reason. (16oz pours for $3, they had to be getting rid of this ASAP) Pour is a hazy golden brown with white head. Aroma of gym socks soaked in allspice but not in a funky and good way. Taste is a nasty hot pumpkin pie spice mess. Avoid.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 4/20
Pailhead (5193) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of consists of light-moderate nutmeg, cinnamon, light graham cracker, and pumpkin. It pours a mostly transparent amber with a touch of haze and a large yellow-tinted off-white head that has good retention. There is a good amount of soapy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of nutmeg and cinnamon. Itís instantly dominated by moderate-heavy sour lemon/lime in the finish. There are also some vegetal notes that struggle to get past the lemon/lime flavors. Itís light bodied with lively and prickly carbonation. Overall, it smells pretty good, but flavor-wise, thereís some serious problems here.

resevil787 (123) - Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark amber, white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice. Taste is pumpkin pie. If I didnít like pumpkin beers so much Iíd have to rate this much lower.

alexanderj (3349) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle; didnít write down the color, but nothing real noteworthy. Aroma of spice, gingerbread, and veggies. Palate was real thin. Some decent pumpkin spices, but a strange sweetness to it. Maybe a bit better than expected

JohnnyJ (4625) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle. Clear copper pour, huge head. Sweet, very spicy, clove, light cinnamon, not much pumpkin, and watery. Not very good, but at least it was cheaper than Budweiser.

Worst attempt at a pumpkin ale I have ever had, and Iíve had them all because itís my favorite seasonal beer and favorite time of year when the pumpkin ales come out . Definitely has no pumpkin flavor at all but a lot of spice-in fact, it tastes like a bottle of liquid "Old Spice" soap/cologne. Seriously, I felt like I was drinking a bottle of perfume/cologne/liquid soap. Horrible taste. Bought it at Fresh and Easy and drank one. Threw away the rest.

Robbievegas (230) - Las vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 10, 2012
I picked this up in the bottle from Total Wine in Henderson, NV. A watered down pumpkin ale with hints if pumpkin and fall spices. A lingering spice aftertaste. Not one of my favorite pumpkin ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
