3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Benno’s. Pours to an amber/bronze body with a white head. The aroma is light. Pumpkin and spice. Cardamom? Too light! This is the lightest tasting pumpkin beer I’ve had. Nice sweet pumpkin, very light spices. The palate is creamy and medium bodied. Nice and good carbonation.

I believe they pour the pumpkin pie mix right into the mash during the brewing process. It is a very spicy beer with lots of pumpkin flavor. Quite good - for a beer with Pumpking in it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This wasn’t bad at all. There are lots of spices in both the aroma and taste, being dominated by cinnamon and nutmeg. Pretty creamy with a strong pumpkin aftertaste. I thought it was a fun beer for the season.

Pours a clear amber color, small white head quickly disapearing. Aroma is of cinnamon, like "liquid atomic fireballs". Flavor is sweet, lots of spices, with a sweet malt body. Not a big fan of the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange color with a white head...nothing too impressive. Strong pumpkin and clove aroma with some pepper, nutmeg and ketchup? Bready flavor as well as the obvious pumpkin and sweet malt with a dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper orange pour. Thin off white quick settling head. Pumpkin aroma as soon as I opened the bottle. Also spices, especially nutmeg, with alcohol underlying it all. Not much carbonation in appearance. Pumpkin is the first flavor, spices in the middle of the mouth, and a sour finish. Cannot drink more than one of these. Novelty beer. Not for me but well worth the rate.

Pretty solid beer, I would say that it has more of the spiciness that is associated with Pumpkin pie, than the actual pumpkin flavor, kind of a spicy sweet flavor, no real hops to speak of, good but not really a style that I would repeat much

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Thin white head with a dark, cloudy body. The aroma is fairly spicy with nutmeg and mace. Also the pumpkin and soem earthy must comes out. The taste has a funky tartness under the pumpkin. It is hard to get past the tartness. A lame lager beer and probably the worst pumpkin beer I have had. Thanks Secret Santa.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted just like pumpkin pie, there’s so much spice and flavor to it, so if you like pumpkin pie you’ll love this, but I don’t like pumpkin pie that much, so I won’t get it again.

Cloudy golden-orange color, aroma of cinnamon and pumpkin. Small white head that doesn’t last, not much lacing either. Pumpkin , ginger, cinnamon and butter bread flavors, Medium body body with a buttery mouthfeel, finishes pretty sweet, I had a tough time finishing the bottle.
