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.

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!

3fourths (9108) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Slightly murky orange with a huge foamy tan head but it dies quickly. Sweet pumpkin syrup and candy smell, a bit artificial. Taste has some rye, cardamom, soap and some sweet peach. Too candy-like.

alexsdad06 (8919) - Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange amber color with a thin off white film. The aroma is sweet, with mild hints of pumpkin and way too much spice. The flavor is like the nose too short on the pumpkin and too heavy on the spices. Soft and a touch thin, this became tough to finish.

Draft to taster. Looks decent; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells of pumpkin, spices, and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay, but I think I prefer pumpkin ales to pumpkin lagers.

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.

drowland (7881) - 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!

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2006
Bottled 10/05. Poured a clear medium caramel with a rather well-retained cap of off-white head. Nose was of baked pumpkin, nutmeg, and an unidentifiable sourness... decent. Flavor was pumpkin-based, with brown sugar, cinnamon, an odd sour and tangy metallic twang to it. Tacky on the front of the palate, watery across the middle, and tacky again at the finish... odd feel to it. OK pumpkin with a solid (not overbearing) spice complement.

Ernest (7286) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2006 Blind rating. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel), with notes of nutmeg and pumpkin. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Unpleasant sourness hurts this one.
