3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange, off-white head. Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice - the usual pumpkin ale suspects. Flavor is sweet and spicy, again pretty much what you would expect. Not bad, but I don’t know that I’d get it again...

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Spicy. Pumpkin, cinnamon, citrus, brown sugar, cloves, salt. Clear ornage pour with medium carbonation and a medium-sized, lacing beige head. Taste is moderately spicy (add allspice and nutmeg to the list) pumpkin pie, a little grainy. Medium, slightly oily body. The citrus and coiander/cloves (the Wit notes, essentially) are the interesting tones here. Just a touch of citric sourness and light bitterness in the finish and beyond.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was semi sweet caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The flavor was dryish and spicy with strong nutmeg and cinnamon and moderate caramel and nut undertones. Long cinnamon and nutmeg finish. Medium body. Solid.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fall 2001. Very clear orange (pumpkiny!) body with a medium-sized head; aroma is deliciously Thanskgiving, pumpkin and cloves with just a hint of chocolate; flavor is on the light side but malty with pumpkin running throughout. Little hop presence; a bit thin and weak, but worth a try. Probably the brewer’s least impressive offering, but still miles better than a lot of fruit/veggy beers. 1/1/2002 rerating -- liked this a bit more 2nd time; pumpkin flavor needs a little warming to come through strongly; if it had a touch more body it would be up there with some of the brewery’s other (world-class) offerings. Oct 2002. Seems thinner and weaker this year; aroma still wonderful, and overall still above average.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a translucent copper with a small creamy white head that left some slight lacing on the glass. Aroma of pumpkin pie spicing, pumpkin, nuts and bready. Flavor was again a lot of that pumpkin pie character you would expect. Actually getting more actual pumpkin flavor in this beer more so than I really ever had with any other pumpkin beers. Even getting more texture in the mouthfeel. I wonder if part of that is due to the fact that this is a lager. Not sure I had many pumpkin lagers..usually ales.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a burnt orange color with no head. Cinnamon and nutmeg on the nose. The taste has much more pumpkin flavor than most. It seems typical to have lots of spices rounded off with pumpkin; this one reverses that recipie. Pretty tasty treat, but I would like a little more flavor. Not bad by any stretch.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
