3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap: Appropriately orange colored, both a smell and taste of both pumpkin (you’re shocked, I know) and wheat. Surprisingly bitter aftertaste. Not bad for a novelty, but not something I’d drink regularly.

Pours pale straw white with a little haze. Aroma is pretty strong bananas, wheat. Flavor is pretty light, not much going on. Kinda boring, but not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. I’ve been seeking pumkin beers this year, and I believe this is my 3rd rating so far. This one pours an orangy brown with a disapearing pop like head. Aroma is pretty well dominated by cinnamon, but there is slight notes of other spices. Flavor comes in with some pumkin, loads of cinnamon, hints of nutmeg, allspice, brown sugar, all appropriate pumkin like flavors. Not getting any hops but thats okay, it’s not needed. Tthe finish comes in fairly dry and short. Palate on this is thin, watery, but I guess it’s supposed to be being a lager and all that. Slightly out of balance in my opinion and improperly spiced this one is coming in last so far on my pumkin spree. DFH is winning right now, I wish I could get my hands on some of that southern tier stuff or O’fallons, but still.

Hazy orange pour with non existent head. Aroma is dominated with spice and sweet pumpkin. High hopes. Taste is sweet with a slight hint of bitter at the finish. Overall weak carbonation and light body lend to an underwhelming but decent pumpkin beer

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy golden amber with a nice tan foamy head. Aroma of pumpkin spice and nutmeg. Pumpkin is all in the nose not in the taste. Lots of spice and earthy hops. Bit of vanilla in the finish. Balances out the bitter and spice. Lightly carbonated and enjoyable. Not sweet like most pumpkin brews.

Pretty passable as a dessert beer. The nose, unsurprisingly, was pumpkin and spices. The flavor was a buttery pumpkin/apple hybrid with cinnamon, allspice, and brown sugar very lightly added in.

This beer pours almost orange in color with a light white head. The beer is a bit hazy in the glass. The aroma is sweet and a bit like pumpkin spice. You can definitely taste the lager flavor, but it is sweet and has some hints of pumpkin pie spice. The flavor is a little sweet and doesn’t have as much of the spice as I would like, but it’s not a bad pumpkin beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep amber with small white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices. Flavor had a decent pumpkin taste with a good kick of cinnamon, nutmeg. A good malty pumpkin backbone combined with the spices made for a crisp and satisfying beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a amberish/orange color with a medium head. Aromas of pumpkin, spices, nutmeg and some caramel. Flavor hits you with the spices first that then mellow in to silky pumpkin flavor. Slight bitter finish to it as well. Not too bad

UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 Light golden color with a thin white head. Strong pumpkin spice aroma. Spiced, malty taste and pumpkin flavor with a bit of hops and a slightly bitter finish. Claims to be the worlds only pumpkin lager (all the others are ales.) Not bad.
