This beer is the great pumpkin taste with a nice medium look and a fall smell to boot.

Pours a slightly cloudy light orange with a white head with little lacing. The nose is light spice. The taste is spice with no bitterness apart from the spice. The body is lager, which is a welcome change from the pumpkin ales.

Tasting at Keg and Barrel 12 Oct 08, kinda urine color with no head. smells of nutmeg and pumpkin spices. Mouthfell is thin and watery. It ends up with more of just a lager taste that pumpkin.

This is OK, but Iíve had mixed results despite multiple attempts at trying it. Weaker taste than I want for what it is. Weaker color than I want. Spicy, and a little yeasty, and there is a little pumpkin, but just not that great. Would only drink one.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Light, cloudy orange with thin wispy head. Sweet caramel in the nose with some funky pumpkin notes. Light fizzy mouthfeel. Sweet caramel notes up front with some medium pumpkin meat. Taste is oddly vegetal. Finish is rather flat. Slightly clean and lager-like finish, not much bitterness to speak of. Suggestion of pumpkin guts.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Pours amber with a small Head. Nose is heavy with pumpkin and spice... Very strong scent. Taste is almost too overpowering with pumpkin spices. I know thatís what this is marketed as, so I wonít discredit for that. Anyone looking for liquid pumpkin pie wonít be disappointed.

I am very impressed with the aroma of this beer. From the bottle it is like Campari and soda; from the glass it takes on a hoppiness and when taken in closer the aroma exhibits malts, elegant womenís perfume and spices. The flavor of this beer is unique to me as this is my first pumpkin flavored beer (figured itís Halloween time so why not). Sort of hard to put a handle on, still a lot like Campari but with some tangy spice elements; perhaps the standard hops and malt elements should be more prevalent to make it seem less like a high-quality wine cooler. In fact, I donít like its texture at all - carbonation is present but seems stifled, and there is a watered-down syrupiness. One thing that strikes me is that pumpkin doesnít seem to figure too strongly anywhere in this beer - since this is claimed to taste like pumpkin pie Iíve decided to deduct 2 Overall points based on this. Note: if you're in Milwaukee I'd recommend this brewpub - truly a fun place with a sense of class, and many great brews to say the least.

pours a clear copper orange with a small white head. aroma is light pumpkin and heavy spice. The taste is more spice than pumpkin. A nice lingering spiciness on the palate. Pretty darn good.
