Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium orange with a short beige head. The aroma picked up sweet pumpkin meat and vanilla with nutmeg and ginger accents. The flavor found similar, picking up some complementary pumpkin tartness.. tasty stuff. Lighter-bodied with good balance.. very drinkable.

blklab2007 (2098) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle dated 070813 on the glass. Pour has an orange in color with a thin covering of off white head that retained well. Aroma has cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and real pumpkin puree. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation a bit low. Flavor has mild sweet malt, mixed spicing, light bitterness, and again real pumpkin. Easy drinking and not dominated by the spices.

EithCubes (5247) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottled ... 070213? Nose has some pumpkin but more notable is how the spices are controlled, nutmeg and cloves and light cinnamon, but none above the sweet citrus and lilting malt overtones. Pours a lightly hazy orange with a soapy off-white head. Taste sweet and spicy, light-medium body, thin malt but smooth with citrus and almost no bitterness. A little lifeless even for style, but OK.

Number 600... A solid beer in this category. Looks exactly like you'd expect, aroma of earthy yeast, pumpkin custard and spices. Taste is very enjoyable, nutmeg, pumpkin spice and caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of pumpkin and clove. Apperance was dark reddish brown. Taste was pumpkin and nutmeg. A little light on the pallate with an odd aftertaste. Not great but ok.

nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2013
draft, clear orange color, thick foamy head, aroma of pumkin, hints of spices. Esy to drink mild brew, like everyone else is saying, not over the top with pumkin flavor. Balanced, hints of pumkin and spice flavors, medium body.

Bottle. Minor initial aroma. Clear medium amber color. Smooth on palate. Well balanced. Mild taste; no pumpkin taste at all. Good smooth beer but not very flavorful.
