UPDATED: APR 12, 2007 Pours light orange and clear. Aroma is spices and cinnimon. Flavor is very spicy the clove taste is over powering, however it does taste like pumpkin pie. I poured the last inch down the drain.

Hmmmmmmmm. This is Screamin’ Pumpkin by MBC I hope it’s the same one. But this stuff is pretty bad whatever it’s called. Aroma is something akin to pumpkin pie splashed with Old Spice. Tastes even worse than it smells. The only good thing about it is I only bought the one bottle!

Poured out a copper color with an off white head with a very slight lacing on glass. This ale has a wonderful nose that is nothing short of pumpkin pie including the crust with plenty of nutmeg notes. On palate there is plenty raw pumpkin meat and plenty bread/pumpkin pie crust flavors. The finish has remnants of spice and sweetness. All I need is the whip cream!

Great aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie. Just all around a great smelling beer. Pours a dark nutmeg color, with a slightly offwhite thick head. Flavors predominantly of cinnamon, nutmeg, little pumpkin, lots of spice. Great autumn flavors. Lingering spice on the palate, gets kind of a tangy aftertaste though.
Great beer at a great price for the fall, I suggest picking it up if you haven’t for next year.

Golden beer with a good off white head. Aroma is of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin. Taste is again like pumpkin pie with more crust taste of bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, malt, with a very slight hop and spice finish. For a spiced pumpkin ale this takes top honors, great seasonal beer.

Great pumpkin ale, though a bit thin. Aroma is great pumpkin, allspice, cinamon. Good spicey hop finish too. I expected more of a smooth palate and more of a winter warmer. Good beer for the style, but not my cup of stout.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this in both tap and bottled. Both are excellent with tap being a bit better. Aroma is a stong pumpkin spice, with nutmeg and cinnamon in there, as well as a very faint hop. The taste is very, very good. You can taste the pumpkin first, with spices quickly following, then a very slight hop finish. I wonder how it would taste with whipped cream? This beer made for a nice afternoon with the kids at the brewery while they stuffed thier faces with peanuts. Another great beer produced by MBC!

Wow! A slap in the face of fall spices greets the nostrils, pours pretty weak however, mild copper color and light white head. Ohhh but the smell! And the spice taste is really excellent aggressive taste of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg and pumpkin. A very enjoyable lighter seasonal.

Mmmmmmmm . . . pumpkin pie! This beer really surpised me, and I can’t wait until Fall to get some more. It literally tastes like pumpkin pie, but you can still tell it’s beer. No one I know likes it, but I can’t get enough.
