Bottle<!-- p --> Clear yellowish orange, nose has pretty good hops and faint malts with pumpkin. Taste is more pumpkin than the so-called pumpkin spice found in other pumpkin beers out there. For example, when comparing this beer to Buffalo Bills I find this much easier to drink as a beer and overall much more enjoyable.

from the bottle. poured a dark honey with no head. aroma, those nice pumkin pie spies of cinnamon, nutmeg, and gloves with a side of brown sugar, some hops. where is the whip cream? flavor not as robust as I was hoping for had a hard time pulling the flavors out , did get a little of the pumpkin and just hint of the spices. onther than that it was a easy drinking beer.

Pours copper with a beige head that disappears very quick. Aroma is veggie / squash with some cinnamonh. Medium / light body with a small amount of carbonation. Starts with squash, not a distinct pumpkin. There is also cinnamon spice with a minor in clove and nutmeg. Finish is spicier with the cloves showing up more. An okay beer, above average for a pumpkin ale.

2006 Vintage, bottle. Aroma is dominated by pumpkin pie spices but you can also get some of the pumpkin/squash like aroma. Light copper color, hazy, with a thin white head. Flavor is dominated by the spices...cinnamon is really prominent. After a few drinks you get used to the spicing and can start tasting more of the pumpkin, but it’s not nearly as well balanced as the last couple of years. Body is medium with a long lasting finish. Overall, one of my favorite pumpkin beers, but I’m not quite as happy as I’ve been in prior years. Still good though.

Mmmmmm...smells like umpkin and spice. Go figure. A refreshing and tasty pumpkin, probably my second fav. to Lakefront’s version.

murawski (160) - USA - SEP 13, 2006
My first pumpkin ale of the season, and it’s from a local St. Louis area micro-brewery (skeptical). Not bad, but a bit much on the spicy flavor (cloves, cinammon, etc.). Not bad.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - SEP 12, 2006
12oz bottle. Served a few minutes out of the beer fridge. Pours copper/bronze with a small head. Aroma of nutmeg, clove, and to a lesser extent, malt. The initial taste is nutmeg & clove, some pumpkin followed by some cinnamon and spice. Nice, spiced finish. Enjoyable, like many of the other O’Fallon beer, but not extrordinary.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 10, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2007 Re-rate: 12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was thin, off white, and reduced in less than a minute. There wasn’t much lace on the glass at the end. The aroma was somewhat disappointing, but not bad. It was a strange combination of fruity candy and a bit of pumpkin. Very nice flavor consisting of a mixture of complimentary flavors including pumpkin, cinnamon, butter, and malty cereal grain. Pretty good, saved mostly by the nice flavor.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Clove and cinnamon aroma. Smelled like Thanksgiving dinner. The most interesting aspect of this sampling was the cloudy swirl in the middle that looked like a nebula beckoning from afar. Try holding it up to a light and watch the cloudy fingers call you to taste. With that, I found it to be lacking in flavor as compared to the aroma and appearance. Cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg great you while the hops grace it’s exit. I could drink this through Thanksgiving.

Pailhead (5374) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Bottle: Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, and the slightest touch of grassy hops. Pours a transparent amber with an small off-white head that diminishes about as quick as any beer I’ve seen. Almost looks still sitting in the glass unless you take a real close look to see small bubbles rising to the top. Like a lot of pumpkin beers for me, the light flavor just doesn’t live up to the aroma. Light cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of pumpkin. Light grassy hops in the finish. While it looks still, the carbonation is a bit prickly on the palate. It’s drinkable, but that’s hardly a compliment.
