HogTownHarry (6142) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
Draught. At Coleís, Buffalo NY. Hazy amber with an average diminishing off-white head. a GREAT aroma of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, cream and graham crackers - so moreish. Tastes similar, not quite as mouthwatering; Cool Whip ("why are you sounding the "H"?!!!) instead of whipped cream, so dry herbal bitterness. Light bodied, decent carbonation, mild alcohol, a hint of spice-astringency; it finishes quick, but leaves a pleasant spicy/biscuity linger - a solid pumpkin beer, and disturbingly easy to drink.

(Draught at GABF) clear golden, fine ring of white bubbles. Nose of pumpkin, huge cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet brown sugar, juniper and herbal. Taste of spruce tips, christmas *HUGE* spices, cloves, little bit of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Well carbonated, huge spice linger and allspice on the palate.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle from Patís Liquors in Porter, Indiana: It poured a clear golden amber body with a sizeable head that left lots of lace in its wake. Thereís no indication if thereís any pumpkin in here, and if there is, I missed it. The aroma is full of pumpkin pie spices (nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, etc.) and block any malt that might be there. The flavor is more beery, delivering some sweet caramelly malts followed by a rush of pie spices and a light herbal bitterness. Considering itís a style that I really donít care for, this one wasnít too bad.

27/III/2012 - 355ml bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2012-292) Thanks to Cory and kelly for the bottle!

Little cloudy deep orange beer, big irregular creamy head, adhesive, pretty stable. Aroma: lots of cloves, cinnamon, some ginger, more cloves, bit sugary, although that last could be my mind playing tricks on me with all of these pastry aromas. MF: soft carbon, light to medium body. Taste: lots of spices, mainly cinnamon and cloves, orange peel, gingerbread. Aftertaste: bitter, lots of spices, more cloves and cinnamon, bitter, little metallic, green banana.

Skyview (5282) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Sampled from 12-oz bottle at Cellarís Wine and Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a copper amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a ring and film top. Aroma of spiced pumpkin filling, cinnamon, nutmeg and some mince meat raisin. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a pumpkin filling flavor. Finish is semi-sweet with a spicey pumpkin aftertaste. No doubt, Mr. Peter Peter would be proud of this one.

Pailhead (5277) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Bottle: Huge spice aroma. Loaded with ginger with some cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin. About as close to pumpkin pie as your going to get in a pumpkin beer aroma. Maybe a tad too much ginger, but I really like it. Pours a transparent amber with a small off-white head that diminishes quickly. Flavor is rather disappointing after the aroma. Very watery up front with light pumpkin. Flavor builds into a spicy ginger and cinnamon finish with light bitterness. A light sourness hides in the background. No doubt the overall score benefits from the aroma.

Thanks Floyd. A clear caramel beer with a smallish tan head. A nice aroma with pumpkin that is just some Cool Whip away from pumpkin pie including the spices. Feel is quite zesty and gives a nice zing to the tip of the tongue. Flavor is exactly the same as the aroma. One of the best beers in this genre that I have had.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5168) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was strong nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor was bitter nutmeg and cinnamon and had a light dry malty undertone and a hint of hut. The finish was long and spicy. Nicely done.

EithCubes (5138) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle. Nose is dominated by sweet, overly strong pumpkin pie spice. Way overdone. Clear bright orange body with a large creamy beige head. Watery body is filled with spice but here are some nice earthy undertones and sparkling vanilla accents. Mildly bittersweet. Hard to find a good swig of punkin juice, but thisíll do.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2011
Poured into a tulip. Color is a bright peach-orange color that is mostly transparent with a bit of light haze. Single-finger white head falls down into a bit of light lacing and a few large carbonation bubbles. Nose is some bright and strong pumpkin spice notes along with a strong nose of cinnamon and some sweet apple. Taste is Apple Jacks with some cinnamon and green apple components plus a bit of nutmeg and some sweet pumpkin pie. Light sweetness. Light to medium body with low amounts of carbonation. Pretty sweet and slightly cloying. Not terrible, but a bit too sweet and slightly gimmicky. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-14-2010
