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!

I live in Holland for part of the year and this beer is what everyone drinks in the fall. Itís not a particularly amazing beer when compared with some of the other pumpkin-spice beers, but still one of my favorite session beers for fall. Not overpowering in regards to any of the pumpkin pie tastes, just enough to taste like fall in a glass.

Maybe I had an old bottle, but the aroma I had was simply malt, no spice or pumpkin, taste pretty much the same,fairly thin body,if I didnít have the bottle right in front of me , I wold have sworn someone poured me a lager

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Pours a mirky orangish-gold, with the top half of the beer being more hazy and darker than the bottom of the beer. Small whitish head with small swirls throughout and some bubbles at the edge of one region. Good "legs" on the side of the glass after each sip. Smells of (yep) pumpkin and heavy bittering agents, almost like a bitter pale ale. Tastes like a bitter pumpkin and is very light - almost like a soft, sugary pumpkin pie but watered down. Very fizzy, almost sour. Finish is very clean and maintains a more clean pumpkin aftertaste that lingers for several minutes. This beer would get close to being a decent attempt in most areas, but in every instance, it fell short of being satisfying.

AlabastorJones (812) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Looks like iced tea, slightly fogged, thin white head with a little lacing, spicy aroma rich with cinnamon and nutmeg, hints at a bold flavor, which just isnít there, it tastes like a bland wheat beer with a spicy hint of something, watery palate, not too impressed by this one

egajdzis (5622) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Poured a lightly hazy, copper color with a small, white head and left light lacing on the glass. Sweet lightly spiced malt, dominate earthy pumpkin aroma. Nutmeg, light brown sugar, very light pumpkin, funky tasting, sweet malts. A rather bland spiced ale.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin ontop of a lite malt aroma. Golden with brown hints, minimal off white head. Interesting combination of tastes. Cooked pumpkin inside of toasted malt flavors with a bit of hop to dry it all out. Some chalkiness at the end and the mouth feel is not that pleasing to me. Some spice also - nutmeg and strong clove.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Dull gold. Dense white foam collar leaves sporadic lace. Balanced nose of cinnamon, nutmeg, melon seeds, and toasted malt. Dry with a sharp spritz. Sweet, but dry and firmly malty, with subtle spicing. Balancing notes of sweet graham and freshly cooked buttery pumpkin with hints of acidity and evergreen, which deaden the body. Chalkiness causes both the spice and malt to lose intensity at the finish, as fresh, teasing hints of pumpkin and toasted malt remain. Fairly straightforward example, but at least the spicing was moderate enough to allow some of the subtler pumpkin and malt flavors to come through.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Orange-amber. Earthy cinnamon aroma. Not as sweet or malty as other pumpkin ales Iíve had but I liked the different spin on the style. Nutty and lasting flavor of roasted squash. Mostly dry finish with lingering bitterness.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2004
I liked this, but I didnít love it. I usually love pumpkin ales, so I was a little disappointed our local brewery. Pours a golden orange with white head. spiced aroma, in fact more spiced in aroma and flavor than pumpkin-y. thin and pretty easy to drink, but with a strange, lingering aftertaste.

BUrunner (92) - Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Pours golden with a moderate, short-lasting white head. Minimal lacing. Nice spiced aroma, but very little pumpkin aroma (or flavor). A very good, easy drinking beer though.
