COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ichabod combines malted barley and real pumpkin with cinnamon and nutmeg in a delicious and inviting brew. A rewarding complement to many dishes, Ichabod pairs well with autumnal foods such as poultry and root vegetables. After dinner, try it with your favorite dessert!

Thoughtthis was prett drinkable, but not very pumpkin. No noticeable pumpkin aroma. A light trace on the tongue, almost an afterthought. Some decent malts and very light hops. Ultimately not a show stealer, but very solid, esp. for a vegetable brew. Also - they have a much cooler lable now!

Draft at Bostonís Bistro, Dayton. I love the name and label. Bright orange with a poofy top. The aroma said "attack of the gourd!" Spicy yet light-bodied in the aroma with an almost lemony finish that didnít quite fit. Thin, too, for a fall beer.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 Bottle. Nice pumpkin color, pleasant vegetable-like aroma but not necessarily pumpkin in nature. Smells spicy too. Very drinkable, mild and spiced, sort of a beer version of apple cider. No beer bitterness whatsoever, some folks wonít like that at all but itís my bag. Maybe drank it a touch too cold.

BigBeer45 (1422) - Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2006 Poured orangy gold amber ale, looked pretty in the glass, hardly any head, had to pour hard to make a head on top, smells of pumpkin (and hints of that fresh pumpkin smell when cleaning out the insides before carving), squash, some cooked vegetables, and a little spices, taste of pumpkin was subdued, some bite on the tongue from hops and a dry finish, this beer looked and had the fragrance of a pumpkin ale, the spices were muted, I would buy this again.

mstockton (225) - Frankfurt, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2006
Golden color with a light, white head. Not too sweet, but a little bit with some bitter flavors. A decent beer that drinks pretty easily...not huge on the pumpkin flavor though.

tcruicks (282) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Its a yellow color with a hint of orange and a small white head. This beer is very drinkable, almost too much so. It smells very much like pumpkin, and tastes very spicey with maybe carrots and cinammon, some malt, some light fruit.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Pours a rather light, almost macro yellow with just about no head. The nose is a bit more inviting. Holiday spices, light malt, and a hint of something vegetable-like? Hell, maybe even pumpkin. The body is fizzy and light, which I suppose suits the style, a real session beer. The flavor isnít bad, but doesnít distinguish itself from the rest of the genre. Light malt, filled to the gills with cinnamon and nutmeg, with only the slightest bit of pumpkin rounding out the end. Perhaps, a bit soapy. Still, I could drink a dozen of these, and I was in the mood for this at the time, so this is a decent beer, when in the mood for an easy drinking seasonal.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2006
An OK pale ale with some pumpkin overtones. Nothing special in its appearance. Some hints of cooked pumpkin, lighly spiced in what is otherwise a pretty straight forward ale. Better than some pumpkin ales I have had recently ... at least the pumpkin is not spoiled. But I donít see any point to a beer made of cooked squash or cooked carrots or whatever ... unless it adds a distinctive sweet spice to the beer. This is just a lightly vegetal ale. Yeah ... ok but sort of pointless.

NaturalIce (148) - originally from Michigan, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Excellent spicy pumpkin aroma, but I was a little disappointed with the pour; very little head, decent color. Somewhat weak finish but the overall palate is great, starting with spicy pumpkin and moves to nut/fruit finish.
