Orange color with quite a bit of sediment. Very nice spicy aroma. The flavor doesn't hit you over the head, like some pumpkin ales do. The pumpkin is there, as well as a variety of spices, but they blend together well.

Nice burnt orange color. Smells a little weak as far as the spices are concerned. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves. The flavor is quite a sour citrus taste, not overwhelmingly pumpkin at all. The first taste is a bit like pumpkin, a little sweet but then it finishes as perrier or some other tonic water. Definitely tonic water finish. Unimpressed. Olde Peninsula's Pumkin Brew is still my favorite of this style. This isn't horrible but I wouldn't buy more of it.

OK, I hate most pumpkin ales, but this one is done nicely. Not, over the top and a good balance of flavor. Excellent dinner beer.

Color is a dark pale squash-like yellow, how fitting, head is small, loose and white, fading very fast, leaves minimal lace. Smell reminds me of fresh squash and pumpkin guts, but faintly, not all that aromatic, but is complexingly nice. Some lighter mild and dull fruits are more so in the smell with some dried light lemon, tomato, melon, yellow pepper, and nutmeg noted. Nice mild vegetable spiced nose. Taste is intreging and mildly spiced with various vegetable and fruitish qualities, balanced well with cracker like malts and a moderate little hop bite. Subtle flavors intice alot of garden memories with tomato, a touch of dull lemon, a bit of squash and pumpkin, mild spice, cinnamon, mild pepper, & nutmeg, actually it kinda reminds me of old ketchup, just not as thick of course. Feel is lighter then medium, clean and fresh with a super quick and crisp finish with some mild and dull spices lingering. I actually liked the little nuances this had, the subtlites are quite nice, every sip brought out something a bit different then the last. A nice refreshingly spiced little beer.

Very close to the description. Does have a pumpkin spice nose. Orange hue and the flavor is heavy with the cinnamon. There is some pumpkin but spices dominate.

light amber color, almost no head. aroma is that of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. reminds me of Old Spice deoderant. also a very subtle caramel type roasty thing. flavor has a lot of yeast and spice, but with very little pumpkin presence...surprisingly good.

A nice ale with a gingerbread spice. Starts with a hint of malt sweetness and ends on a spicy hop note. A nice fall selection.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2004 re-rate: perhaps not as fresh, but feels oxidized and less of the spicy sweetness. not as good as the first time i had this....

this is one of my very favorite fall/winter beers! a dark orange color with a lovely off-white head, and a lightly spicy aroma that is more like gingerbread than pumpkin. the pumpkin and spices blend really well with a malty smoothness, and a subtle hoppy tang. and it’s got a clever name and fun label.

A fall beer to add to the seasonal lineup! Appropriately orange, sediment-laden, and topped with a thin white head. The pumpkin pie aroma seemed out of place on a July evening, but fall is not too far off! Flavor was likewise spicy (ginger) pumpkin pie. A neat seasonal from an interesting local brewer.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2003 Only my second pumpkin ale, I was VERY pleased with this offering. Nice copper color with a fluffy off white head and a great pumpkin and spice aroma start this fine brew. Flavor also features the pumpkin, but the spices are more prominent. A nice hop bite on the finish as well. A great seasonal spice beer!
