5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Bottle: Hazy amber, moderate spritzy off-white head, dies quickly, spotty lacing.   Nose of allspice, slight cloves, pumpkin bread.   Spicy on the tongue, not as sweet as others as the nutmeg and cinnamon are muted.   More Pumpkin and Allspice, slight orange rind as well.   Somewhat flat on the tongue, but remains quite flavorful.   Fairly clean finish, lingering spices.   Not as bright as other examples, but still big on flavor. &nbps Thanks Facto for the bottle!

deyholla (5972) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Bottle. Poured an orangish amber with minimal head. Aroma is full of pumpkin notes with a sugar sweet undertone. Flavor begins pumpkin, but sweet flavors tend to over power by the finish. Not bad as pumpkin beers go.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
10/22/11. 12oz bottle. Hazy orange pour. Medium level spice aroma, mostly cinnamon, with a touch of sweetness. Sweet gourd flavor with a nice spice profile as well. Not overwhelmingly spicy. Not bad!

phaleslu (5869) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2009
12 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines. Pours mostly clear copper, slightly cloudy, with almost no head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, citrus, pumpkin. Flavor is a weaker version of that- somewhat watered down with a really light body. Thin mouthfeel, cinnamon/nutmeg finish. Could be better if the flavor matched the aroma.

arminjewell (5717) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is slightly hazy orange with nice bright white head, aroma has nice sweet notes of pumpkin, biscuit, and toffee, some nice hints of cinnamon and clove, touch of caramel as well in there. Taste is much heavier on the spice but has notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg for sure, hints of toffee and caramel, some sweet bread notes along with a touch of pumpkin, finishing slightly bitter, dry and spicy. I liked this!

blipp (5679) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. Sweet aroma with brown sugar, pumpkin, vanilla, and spices. The flavor has pumpkin, ginger, and spice. Nice.

BVery (5616) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle. Clear amber orange pour with a very small head. Aroma is pumpkin and lager yeast. Decent palate. A bit of spice in here as well. Pretty solid fall beer.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Pours a hazy orange color with a head that goes away as quickly as the beer is poured. Pleasant cinnamon and pumpkin spice aroma. The flavor is interesting but I like it. It is a crisp mix of spices with a touch of grainy malt, a dab of bitterness, than a lingering sweet pumpkin spice. Thinner body than most of these Pumpkin beers, but it’s a lager. It drinks like a lager and finishes crisp like a lager. Interesting. Is there ginger in here?

AmEricanbrew (5523) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 8, 2008
Clear light amber with no head. Nice smell is ginger, cloves, sweet malts. Medium body and smooth. Nice spiced up pumpkin pie flavors mirror the aroma with cloves, pale malts, ginger, nutmeg. Enjoyable, no off flavors/aromas.10157

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Bottle: Hazy copper/orange color, light white head and nice lacing. The nose is herbal with some squash, allspice and clove up front. Towards the back a little bit of molasses. The flavor has a nutty nutmeg note along with the pumpkin and spice. The finish is a bit light and thin. Missing the maltyness that would really push this towards a respectable lager.
