Patrickctenchi (5002) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2012
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..... It’s actually quite good.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2007 Re-rate. Smells like pumpkin pie. Great. Taste is pretty good. One of the thicker and more beer-like pumpkin beers I’ve had. Pretty nice I think.

ben4321 (4840) - 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. I’m a pumpkin beer fan in general, and though this isn’t a perfect beer, I found it to be well executed and enjoyable on a nice fall afternoon watching football.

jkwood04 (4830) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 24, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours copper with a thick, cream-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel/pale malts, a little bit of spices, and light hops. Flavor the same and average texture. Not the best pumpkin beer, but not bad. Edit: 2013 gets exactly the same review as the first time I rated this in 2011.

dmac (4747) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2012
12 oz bottle from Spirits Rt 166. Poured an orange/rust colored body with a smaller foamy of white head. Aroma is more heavy on the spices, all-spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, metallic notes, wet bread and some odd pumpkin as well. the body is very thick and full and not a quick sipper on how much it fillsup your mouth and throat. Flavor actually seems to be astep down from the aroma, wet spices dominate, all-spice, nutmeg, hint of chocolate for some reason, followed by bread, cinnamon and pumpkin. Not a top 3 pumpkin beer but would suffice in a pinch.

AirForceHops (4702) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 13, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Julio’s and a second bottle in trade with queenholly. Clear orange in color, thin head with spider web lace. Nose is indeed pumpkin and spice. Good carbonation making for a lively effervescent palate. Very light body (well it is a lager) Pumpkin spice and nutmeg are the only real flavors to speak of. Not bad just really light.

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