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!

Pours dark clear amber with small head. Nutmeg dominates this brew, with the pumpkin taking a backseat. Too bad for the nutmeg overkill as this brew seemed to have potential.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Bottle, clear coppery slightly gold pour. Subtle but very present and not overwhelming pumpkin and spice (cinnamon and allspice) aroma. Light caramel malty flavors with subtle pumpkin and present but not overwhelming pumpkin spice flavors. Finishes a little earthy and a bit bitter. Decent pumpkin beer I felt. I like the fact that the spices are not overkill on this one. Other pumpkin beers seem to go overboard on the clovy spices, and this one seems more balanced and in-check.

hotstuff (4397) - Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Draft NHBC. Small white head that quickly dissipated, poor lacing, no visible carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Sweet, pumpkin aroma, with a sweet, tart, pumpkin flavor. Tingly mouthfeel. Light body. Not impressed with this one.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2006 Pours amber with decent white head. Aroma is very pale lager like with no spice or pumpkin detectable at all. Flavor even more of a letdown. Pale lager through and through with faint spice towards the finish. Can’t believe I used to actually enjoy this brew. Too many re-rates have been the same to be coincidence.

bu11zeye (12147) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2005
(Bottle) Pours an amber body with a moderate white head. Aroma of pumpkin, breadiness, and spoiled vegetables. Flavor of pumpkin spice and malt.

antzman (315) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2005
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.

Tonitones (13) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2005
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 (476) - 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.
