scrawfis (143) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Straw colored ale with a very thin white head. Aroma is very spicy, with what I think is nutneg, clove, maybe allspice - almost a peppery smell. Flavor is mild at first, with some pumpkin flavor. The finish regains the spicy aroma and ends with an abrupt tartness. The tartness is a bit much, but the ale is refreshing.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 22, 2004
Pale yellow, gold with thick white head that dissapates fast. Cinnamon, clove, and faint pumpkin. Medium mouthfeel with dry short finish. Flavors of pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, hops and light anise. Not bad, no lingering pumpkin pie flavors that I hate in other pumpkin ales.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Orange body with a short-lived white head. Wheat, brown sugar, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is similar except with a more pronounced spice element. Dry finish with a hoppiness that’s pretty close to pumpkin flesh. A well-done pumpkin beer.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Pours a nice amber color with a smaller white head. Smells of cinnamin and nutmeg - very much like an x-mas beer. Very clear. Tastes of noticable spices. Thicker mouthfeel than it looks. Not bad.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Nice amber color, you smell the pumpkin and spices. I smelled brown sugar and something else I couldn’t figure out. Doesn’t taste as good though, mostly just the pumpkin taste at the end. Not spicy at all. Good seasonal indeed.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Pretty beer...crystal clear amber gold. Aroma is pumpkin but not really that spicy otherwise. Flavor is pleasant like pumpkin pie but not as sweet. Smooth body. I like this pretty well.

Metalhead (628) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Aroma was not strong but that of mild pumpkin spices. Poured an orangey gold with a fairly typical 1" whiteish head. Mouthfeel is initially semi creamy with a hint of dryness in the finish. Tastes of mild pumpkin and spices. Overall it was good but nothing mind blowing. When I try a pumpkin beer I am looking for liquid pumpkin pie with either a malt or hop edge.

tomxcs (321) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Pours orangish-brown with a small head. Aroma is nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon with hints of pumpkin (very similar to pumpkin pie). Taste is strongly spiced with a little pumpkin flavor and good amounts of malt. I think that this is a rather good pumpking beer (though it is definitely more spice than pumpkin).

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Dark orange in color with a good head. Spicey aroma with notes of pine. Flavor is of subdued malt and assertive pumpkin pie spice. I admit I am a pumpkin beer fan, but I think most would find this enjoyable.

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Slightly spicy, not bad. Had a nice orangish color, white head, very good aroma. Flavor was definetely different, not sure if it really tasted like pumpkin, but pretty good anyway.
