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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Bottle pours reddish caramel, medium white frothy head, good carbonation, with fairly sticky lacing.   Not much pumpkin like aroma, but definite cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.   Soft spicy flavor, quite a bit of nutmeg & allspice.   Decent body, medium mouthfeel.   Balanced spices on the fininish, not strong nor soft, just perfect.   Thanks goes out to heemer77 for the trade!

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Nutmeg and cinnamon - the aroma mixes well with the pies that Lisaís baking. Darker golden body - very clear, short ring of a head, no lacing. Taste is sweet, spicy and plenty of pumpkin. Finishes sweet. As others have noticed - this has a thin palate.

sfontain (832) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Bright orange with a very tiny, white head. Aroma heavily pumpkin and nutmeg and other pie spice. Flavor is pumpkin and spice as well, but itís a lot more balanced and real-tasting than many other pumpkin brews. Unfortunately thin. Decent pumpkin beer.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Decent pumpkin brew. Dark orange pour with a nose all full of spice. The one knock I have for this one is the palate. Body is a little thin for my tastes and it is overly carbonated.
