Pleasant pumpkin pie spice aroma with some Christmas spice and cinnamon in there as well - quite nice - mostly downhill after that. Light off white head sits atop the light copper pour with some floaties speckled about. Flavor has a brief pumpkin pie spice splash, but settles to a bland vegetable like flavor. Has a bit of pepper in there as well and as it warms, tastes similar to spiked hot cider. The aftertaste is not unlike some malt liquors - slighlty fusel alcohol-like. Started with high possibilities.

Orange color with a white head...nothing too impressive. Strong pumpkin and clove aroma with some pepper, nutmeg and ketchup? Bready flavor as well as the obvious pumpkin and sweet malt with a dry finish.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Found this rating in my phone from who know’s when. Orangish brown pour w/ a small off white head and weak lace. Smells of some bread, weak pumkin pie, clove, & cinnamon. Palate is ok, very avg. Flavor is sweet generic pumkin pie filling and hitns of spice and grain. Not very good.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours a dark orangeish colour with a full generous off white head. Aroma is strong of pumpkin pie, butternut squash and apples. Mouthfeel is light, but creamy. Body is well carbonated, taste is decent, obviously pumpkin infused but not too rich in the taste.

Medium golden pour. I got a strong nutmeg aroma with a little malt but no pumpkin yet. flavor begins with an average lager taste moving on to a medium pumpkin taste and finishing late with a dry grainy nutmeg. Reasonably well balanced brew. Interesting.

(Bottle) Pours a dark shade of amber with a good amount of head. Aroma is heavy on spice, especially ginger. Taste includes some clove and cinnamon roll. Honestly, I am not getting a lot of pumpkin notes in here... just a lot of spice. Fair mouthfeel and body. Not too bad, but probably something I would skip next time around.

TheAlum (6908) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2009
12 oz bottle from the brewery (Milwaukee, Wi) from my February trip. Pours a striking amber pour, clear and well carbonated, with decent offwhite head that dissipates entirely. Aromas are a nice light bready malt body, with pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, and light brown sugar making a good showing. Quite inviting, really. Initial is light bodied, bitter with some pumpkin bite, moving to very vague cinnamon and nutmeg body. Light, bitter. Stays away from malty dominance. A little unfriendly late palate, decent aftertaste. It tries, but it doesn’t quite do it for me.

Cybercat (5045) - Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Aroma is strong and malty with a good overtone of pumpkin and cinnamon, rather appetizing. It pours a clear coppery amber with not much of a head. Pumpkin flavor is strong, but does not overpower the malt; there are hints of cinnamon and hops. Texture is glass-smooth and just a little tingly. A good fall beer, but enjoyable any time of year.

Bottle. Poured an orangish amber with minimal head. Aroma is full of pumpkin notes with a sugar sweet undertone. Flavor begins pumpkin, but sweet flavors tend to over power by the finish. Not bad as pumpkin beers go.
