Pours amber with a slight orange hint... Short, off-white head. Scent is strong pumpkin pie/spice. Taste is pure pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon, crust..... This is not at all my favourite sub-style, but, damn it..... Itís actually quite good.

kramer (5760) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Ofortuna. Pours a clear orangish gold colored body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. Aroma is full of pumpkin pie spices, most prominantly nutmeg and allspice. Lighter notes of cinnamon and pumpkin. Flavor is pretty much all spices, and what pumpkin is there seems pretty artificial tasting. Quite heavy on the cinnamon. Mouthfeel is thinnish with very fizzy prickly carbonation. Texture is just shy of sticky. Overall, this just seemed a little shallow and lacking in complexity. All spice and not much else.

This may be the first pumpkin lager that Iíve had. Iím not sure. Itís so much like most of the rest of the pumpkin beers. The bodyís a deep gold with a touch of orange. The head starts big then fizzles out quickly. It smells of nutmeg and allspice and whatever one usually tosses into a pumpkin pie/cake/cookie/etc. Tastes that way, too. Okay, meaning as good as the others.

Rating number 3 X 666!!!!!

jgb9348 (5527) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Slightly hazy copper tinted body with an orange tint and a very thin off-white head. Aroma of pungent spice and squash note with allspice and cloves coming through, a touch of malt and some nice brown sugars. Medium to Full-bodied; Nice full spice flavour with a good sweetness, some light pit fruits, a touch of malt and a little earthiness. Aftertaste shows good spice tastes, a strong squash and pumpkin full-bodied taste and a good sweetness. Overall, surprisingly good with a nice complex flavour that shows very well for the season. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 04-September-2011 for US$1.35 sampled at home in Washington on 12-September-2011.

Spicy and vegetative in aroma. Decent spice in flavor covers up the vegetables. Not too bad, really could do without the vegetables though.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a typically carbonated yellow-orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was spicy and pumpkin. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild ofness in the aftertaste I did not care for. The mild flavor contained notes of pumpkin. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

ben4321 (5484) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 9/26/10

Aroma: The nose is dominated by the pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon
Appearance: It pours into the glass a clear caramel-orange color without much head
Flavor: The taste also has quite a bit of spice, it is much like the nose, not much else going on here
Palate: It is light-medium bodied, with a lasting spice that tingles on the tongue after the beer dissipates
Overall Impression: This one is one-dimensional, but I like that dimension. This is what you should be expecting when you buy a Pumpkin beer, and it is well executed. Iím a pumpkin beer fan in general, and though this isnít a perfect beer, I found it to be well executed and enjoyable on a nice fall afternoon watching football.

I remember watching the brewmaster spent hours opening all those cans of Libbyís pumpkin pie filling for this beer back in the mid 1990s. Sure enough, todayís Pumpkin lager is just as good as it was back then. Pours a slighly hazy light amber with a nice white head. Aroma is cinnamon, citrus, tasted malt and of course pumpkin. (all it needs now is whipped cream). Tastes more of lightly roasted barley malt and some cinnamon/spices which is present in the finish. A nice light lager beer with a touch of Thanksgiving dessert.
