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!

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2006
Bottle: Clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma, cinnamon, pumpkin, caramel and some grassy hops. Flavor, pumpkin, and some maltyness, some light spicing. It was pretty smooth but a little too light bodied for me.

Found this one bottled at my local Binnyís in St. Charles, Illinois. Orangeish-yellow pour with a thick, off white head. Peppery in the nose with a bit of clove and pumpkin. Flavor is sweet, with pumpkin, nutmeg, orange peel and lemon. Finished strangely astringent. I liked everything about this but the finish.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - OCT 8, 2006
12 oz bottle: Pours a slightly cloudy medium yellow color with smallish off white head. Aroma is malty, hint of pumpkin, allspice, black pepper. Flavor is slightly malty, with a faint twinge of pumpkin. Finish has a metallic note and is a bit too bitter IMO for this type of brew.

Lowe1983 (1483) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Pours a hazy golden color wiht a thin whilte head. Aroma is of pumpkin, spices, fruit malt, and slight bitterness. Flavor starts off with the pumpkin then gives way to the spices and fruit. Finishes slightly bitter. Better then I expected but still isnít anything Iíll be looking forward to getting every winter.

New Holland Ichabod Pumpkin Ale 12 oz bottle Recent bottling, carved into 10/06 Medium pour in a tulip glass. Poured a hazy amber with a small foamy quickly diminishing white head. Smelt of moderate sweet pumpkin with light cloves, and a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste was upfront moderate bitter sweet pumpkin taste with the medley of spices followed by a light bitter pumpkin/squash taste and a hint of spices on a short/medium light bitter finish. Mouthfeel was light bodied, watery, fizzy, with medium astringency. Overall, a beer that does a good job showcasing the pumpkin.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2006
12 oz bottle pours amber in color with a small off white head. The nose is lots of vegetables pumpkin and squash, alright but iím expecting more from these guys. As the beer fills my mouth itís pumpkin spiced, ginger and nutmeg. Not too bad until it fades, it fades to an astringent lactic tinge. This suddenly turns this into an undrinkable drainpour. I donít know what happened but this unpalatable.

JFGrind (1987) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Iíll give props to New Holland for not relying on spices to define its pumpkin beer. Light amber ale with pumpkin and malt flavors in the forefront.

EithCubes (5475) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Bottle. Strong, sweet, wit-ish aroma: a little pumpkin and a lot of spice. Hazy golden pour with an epehemral white head. Spicy taste, not very crisp, medium body. Nice, earthy bitterness. Gourdy with cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Yes, gourdy, but not necessarily pumpkinous. Herby and slightly vegetal, though these notes are constrained to the finish and aftertaste. Compared to the Blue Moon I just spit out, this is a revelation.

Dogbrick (11164) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Sep 22nd, 2006: Dark orange/copper color with a medium eggshell white head and minimal lacing. Aroma of pumpkin pie. Medium body with a good amount of pumpkin flavor, along with some caramel malt. The finish is short and lightly spiced. Slightly above average all around.
