I remember watching the brewmaster spent hours opening all those cans of Libby’s pumpkin pie filling for this beer back in the mid 1990s. Sure enough, today’s 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.

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.

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.

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2002
Light amber with a light cream colored, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg with a faint pale malt undertone. Malt hits you first followed by light spice and then back to malt maltiness. Its been some time since I had had this one, and this one is better than I remember. Pumpkin really doen’t come out until it warms up. Finishes slightly spicy and a touch of hops bitterness. A very good pumpkin beer.

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.

EithCubes (5619) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2006
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.

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.

This may be the first pumpkin lager that I’ve had. I’m not sure. It’s so much like most of the rest of the pumpkin beers. The body’s 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!!!!!

Pours light gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving no lacing. Sour pumpkin and cinnamon aromas. Dry with nutmeg, mild vegetal pumpkin and cinnamon front to back.
