On tap at Clark St. Ale House, Chicago. Definitely tasted the pumpkin flavor, although the overall body is very light. I wish it had a little more malt to beef up the beer-- I guess itís just a light lager with pumpkin flavor.

Iím pretty partial to pumpkin flavor, thus the above average rating. Light bodied, soft malts. Has that pumpkin pie flavor to it, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Balanced without being cloying. Not much to say here, just a nice light pumpkin beer.

(bottle) Pours a light orange with a small white head. Aroma is pretty good with some nice nutmeg slight cinnamon and a bit of pumpkin too. Taste was not the greatest slight hint of pumpkin and spice, but definitely not as strong as the aroma led me to believe, with an off-putting grainy finish that lingered.

[Bottle] Pours slightly hazy amber with a very small white head. Aroma is nice--spices and pumpkin with a little bit of grain. The spices (mainly clove and cinnamon) are also evident in the taste, but the pumpkin is not as much. The grains are more noticeable in the taste and especially in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Not the best pumpkin beer Iíve had, really went downhill after the aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a hazy amber orange body with a small offwhite head. Standard pumpkin beer aroma of pie spices. Taste features some genuine pumpkin favors which blend nicely with the spicy hops and pie spices of cinnamon, ginger, and clove. This lager stands up well to most pumpkin ales in my book.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had this beer on 9/10/1999. Color is like they said it would be an orange/amber with good carbonation a ok head. Aroma is very spicy and hides the pumpkin scent if it ís there at all. Taste light, spicy and mildly bitter. It starts with a light body that goes down crisp. Finish is a malt/pumpkin flavor overwhelmed by coriander and nutmeg. Ok to drink by there is just a bit too much spice.

light gold color. aroma of pumkins and nutmeg spice. Not much pumpkin taste, the nutmeg and spice flavors kind of overwhelm. Not bad for a lager style.
