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!

Bottle. Poured a murky dark orange with a decent sized white head. Aroma makes you want to break out the whipped cream to top that Pumpkin Pie, very tantalizing. Quite a bit of pumpkin flavor, with a bit of nutmeg. This was pretty good for a vegetable/spice beer, but there are better out there in the market.

This beer pours so pretty and smells kinda good, but the flavor is nothing short of terrible. at first you get the pumpkin, but the finish as well as the aftertaste is bitter and gross. I am hoping that there is a better option as far as pumpkin ales go because this one is a flop!

JoshuaB (474) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Pours a somewhat cloudy copper orange with some thick white head. Aroma is all about pumpkin pie. Taste is more of the same. I enjoyed this beer but it seemed flawed in a few ways. First it really needed some more malt and sweetness, as the finish was pretty bitter and unflavorful, not really good for the style and season. Also, the flavor needed to be turned up a few notches, this is a cold weather beer afterall, not a session guzzler, or at least it shouldnt be. Oh yeah, this beer shouldnt be filtered.

How delightful. Very nice spicy smell, like a bakery in october. Orange color, good flavor. Lots of spicy undertones and the pumpkin comes in late, when you least expect it. Kind of watery, but overall very tasty.

Bottle. Pours a orange amber with a moderate white head that diminished slowly. Pumpkin pie aroma. Medium body. Full flavor of spice and pumpkin with a short finish.

thegreenrooster (3295) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Pour is almost a bright orange with a white head. Aroma is of cinnamon and spice. Flavor is deffiantly pumpkin with a nutmeg after taste. Swallow finishes watery and thin. My first pumpkin beer and its so-so. Ok to have one but more than one is a a bit much. Could use more spice.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2005
12 oz bottle pours amber witha short tan head that laces a little. Aroma of caramel malts, pumpkin, some corriander and yeast. Flavor is a nice blend of yeast, pumpkin, caramel, spice, and some earthy undertones. Palate is medium bodied and almost a buttery mouthfeel. This is a pretty good seasonal. Definitely worth a try.

sandwichpants (117) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2005
From a bottle into a straight sided glass. Kinda pale looking, but a nice head. Aroma is wonderful, beer(yeasty) and pumkin and spice, a little biased towards the spice. The yeastiness and the body remind me a little of a Tripel, but lighter. The flavour is very well balanced, better than other pumpkin beerís Iíve tried. If it were a little deeper in itís malts and body, this would be world glass, but as it is, itís still a very nice beer.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Poured from what I suspect is a 2005 bottle since I bought it in Sept. from a store that didnít have it the previous month. This beer pours to a fizzy/foamy white head atop a clear dull golden body. Good lacing. The aroma is very strong. Yeast, nutmeg, pumpkin, ginger, wet/undercooked pumpkin bread, clove. The flavor of this pumpkin ale is much stronger than the OíFallon I just tried. Tons of pumpkin, spices, yeast, wet/undercooked pumpkin bread, honey. This beer is good but a touch cloying with the spices 1/2 way through. This a pretty decent beer as far as pumpkin beers go.

Orange-y brown-ish color, predominately nutmeg flavor with pumpkin notes. My favorite pumpkin so far, but havenít tried very many yet.
