UPDATED: APR 18, 2010 The aroma has caramel malt, hops, spice, and a tiny bit of pumpkin and dirt. The appearance is light amber gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall itís OK maybe even better than OK but not something I would like to drink more than seasonally.

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.

In my little hd mug. Pour is like pale lager but with a touch of haze and perhaps even a little darker. Smell is sugar pumpkin. Stronger somewhat rude personality. Does not hide alky well. Malty and sumthin going on here. Reminds me of some stronger aged high gravity beers. Almost irish in nature. Pumpkin is not pleasing in this brew. On style for a veggie spice brew. Does not have the texture of pumpkin pie, heheh

Bottle... Poured a golden orange with a khaki head. Loads of squash flavors, hints of yams, brown sugars, pecans, maple syrup, with a crisp clean finish that contained malts and spices. Nose had fresh pumpkin squash with hints of cloves and other spices.

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.

Clean golden amber with one finger of wispy off white head. Nose is spicy and pumpkin-y, as one would expect. I kind of lost interest in trying to describe these beers. It is just what you would expect, a little less punch you in the face with the spices than it could be. Medium body, clean enough. Meh.

ben4321 (4092) - 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.

Patrickctenchi (4070) - Coxís 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..... Itís actually quite good.

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

Particulate laden amber with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of pumpkin, spice, nutmeg and sweet malt. Taste of pumpkin, spice, nutmeg. Semi watery body that finishes semi dry and spicy.
