Light orange color with a small white head. Aroma of pumkin and spice. Mild pumkin flavor with some bready malt in the background.

Seemed like an appropriate ale to consume before going out for Halloween night in Madison. Smells atrocious. Interesting taste. Hard to explain as it’s mixing with the toothpaste from my just-brushed teeth, but good. Vote Kerry.

heykevin (1274) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Hazy golden. Vegetal spice aroma--nutmeg, allspice and hints of butyric acid (vomit). Flavor is smooth, not acidic, moderate vague spiciness. No butyric flavor (okay just the merest hint) Flavor is tolerable, but that aroma is quite off-putting.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Glassy yellow oragne color and a thing white head. Aroma is spicy like one would expect from a spiced pumpkin ale. The flavor of the beer is quite nice as it remembers that is a beer first, and a pumpkin ale second. It has a good initial hop characteristic and a strong ending malt robustness that is made all the better by a bit of spice.

Pailhead (4572) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2004
On tap: Very weak pumpkin aroma. Transparent orangish-gold. Very little head. Very weak pumpkin and spice flavor with a light hop finish. More pumpkin tasting than pumpkin like other pumpkin ales I’ve tried lately.

I really like this pumpkin ale. It is well-hopped and I think that this lightens up this style, which is usually cloying. It gives a lighter and crisper perspective. My male friends who were tasting with me preferred the Victory punkin (my guess is the higher abv). Bottle.

I have had this beer both on tap and in the bottle and have always enjoyed it. Probably not a beer I would drink much in the spring but with the pumpkin and the spices it just makes you feel good in the fall.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Burnt Beer Night: Pale Pumpkin Coloring. Good Head. Pumpkin and Spices on the Nose. Unfortunaatly..the Aroma Was Better Than the Taste... Flavor a Bit Watery...

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 16, 2004
A light cloudy copper color with a thin white head on top. The nose has the expected aroma of fresh pumpkin, some dred apples and a little bit of nutmeg. It also reminds me of dry grass. The taste is relatively subtle with a hint of pumpkin hiding behind some earthy hops. The taste is predominantly a nice whole wheat bread with some buttery softness. The pumpkin is there but not overwhelming. Enjoyable for a change of pace.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Yellow color with a foamy head; strange for a pumpkin beer... Good aroma of the typical pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices. The taste is a little more watered down than the aroma suggests, but still good. There was an odd tartness at the finish that just turned this from pretty good to just good.
