Pour is a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is faint but i do detect some nutmeg. Flavor is pretty decent. Lots of pumpkin and cinnamon to go around. Swallow is spicy and rich. Quite tasty and reminds me of Thanksgiving.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2006 Tap. Nice dark brown hue with a medium sized head. The cinnamon and spice came out nicely in the aroma. Nice spicy flavor, slightly sweet. My first pumpkin ale, but I enjoyed it a lot.

Bottle. Hazy orange in color with a nice head. Spicey clove aroma. Nutmeg and clove notes. Cinnamon. Thin. Not much to say. Watery.

I bought this in the collector’s pack that also included the lager, pale ale, marzen, amber bock, and the honey one. This was my favorite of all of them because of the unique flavor and festive aroma.

10.01.05 GABF Clear copper pour with amber highlights and lingering fizz. Sour aromas of milk and canned green beans with nutmeg. More cooked veggies in the flavor but it ain’t pumkin, pumkin. Seriously overspiced as though the marketers are trying to make a point. Fizzy and watery with a crazy amount of eff.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours copper with tiny rising bubbles and a medium foamy off-white head with lined lacing. Sour malt (grain) and yeast (sweat) aromas to start with some pumpkin pie spices (nutmeg, clove) throughout and hints of cooked pumpkin. Pumpkin malty with cloves and nutmeg, sour yeast and hoppy finish. Medium to light crisp clean refreshing palate.

This was my first pumpkin beer. It wasn’t too bad but, it didn’t have the aroma I was looking for. It was OK, and I might buy it again if the season it right.

Good beer. Way to much nutmeg. Perfect seasonal beer, that will proble go well with a big slice of pumpkin pie.
