Aromas of lager with faint pumpkin fruit notes under clove and cinnamon. A delicious lager that does not overdo the spice footer the season. Bottle from bottle shop.

Iím NOT a lager guy.....but I AM a pumpkin guy... This beer is nice! Itís got the pumpkin flavor I want, not too spicy, not too thick....nice bubbly zing on the tongue.. Pours a hazy and almost amber color. Little head that dissipated immediately. Sweet spice aroma, but not very heavy... Light lager taste with hints of pumpkin and spice....very refreshing! My new favorite lager!

deep orange with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet pumpkin with muted nutmeg and cinnamon. Sweet veggie flavor with nutmeg and cinnamon on the finish. Not too overwhelming, in fact for a pumpkin beer, I would like the flavors to be a bit more assertive and distinguish itself from a regular bock. This one just seems comfortable sitting on the fence.

Pours a mostly clear orange golden with a fine off-white head that quickly disappears. I like the nose. Some pumpkin, good spices, nutmeg, some clove, hint of candied ginger. Taste is spiced with clean light pumpkin notes and a nice dry finish with some lingering nutmeg pumpkin spice. Palate is bright and med- body. A good intro pumpkin beer.

Bottle. Lacking in aroma, but makes up it with a very smooth feeling. Not much in flavor, but hints of apple and spice. Really nothing "pumpkin" about it, but thatís a good thing if you donít really get into "pumpkin" flavored brews. Not very distinctive, but an easy to drink, smooth, unoffensive fall lager.

Eh. Nice aroma of pumpkins and spice. Couldnít really taste it though, just seemed to be a little spicy around the edges of my tongue. Not much to it, really.

12oz. All pumpkin pie spice in the aroma, no hint of malt or hops. Flavor is similar except that there is a slight hop bitterness that blends with the spice in a not completely pleasant way. The after taste is watery but the body is on the thick side. Not bad for the first couple sips but it gets harder to drink. Perhaps itís better on tap.

Nice but a little to sweet. To much spice for me. Not that its spicy but its to much like a really sweet pumpkin pie.... No where near as good as ichabod
