Got this one bottled at the Binny’s Oktoberfest in St. Charles, Illinois. Sweet, but without the characteristic spiciness of many other pumpkin brews. Pretty good.

Very thin body. The aroma is horrible. It smells like dirty, rotten trash. The spice overwhelms the beer and there is a lacking in the body. Overall, the Schlafly is much better.

Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Sample from a bottle at Binny’s "Fall Festival of BEERS." Very pumpkiny flavor. Of all the pumnpkin ales I’ve tried, this one succeeds the most in capturing the flavor of pumpkin pie. Very deserty, not really spicey. Purs thick orange color.

2006. Bottled. Beer is clear, light-medium caramel-amber colored with a small, frothy, off white, mostly and rapidly diminishing head.<P>The aroma’s initial impression is raw vegetal and spicy. The malt has light note of toasted grain light-to-moderate notes of caramel and cookie; Hoppy with a light herbal note; Yeasty with a light note of sharp cheese, trace of attic; Light miscellaneous notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, cola, raw pumpkin guts, and traces of apple and ginger, additional light note of alcohol (in the back of a deep inhale) that smells like a coud of hairspray.<P>The flavor is moderately-to-heavily acidic, lightly bitter, lightly-to-moderately sweet with a long, light-to-moderately acidic finish. Husky aftertaste. Trace astringency on the gums.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a freshness date on the carrier, fall ’06 version. Poured a hazy golden orangey bronze with a foamy off-white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing. Aromas of nutmeg, clove, pumpkin juicy and a sweet grainy maltiness. Good carbonation and a crisp, smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of clove, nutmeg, light cinnamon, pumpkin flesh and fruity as well, a subtle hoppiness towards the end and a sweet grainy maltiness. A seasonal from O’Fallon that I look forward to every year, not the best, but one of the better pumpkin ales out there. Picked up at the Woodman’s in Madison, WI.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - OCT 10, 2006
12oz bottle, no date. Pours a clear golden orange with a ring of eggshell head. Aroma of nutmeg, light pumpkin, a little butteryness, and some cinnamon--not all in that particular order. Taste is the same with some very minor bitterness, but not really a lot of sweetness, either. Light body, lighter carbonation. Nothing wrong with this--nothing great about it either.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2013
10/05/2006: Color is clear, orangy amber. Generous carbonation, fizzy. No head or crown of any kind. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice (clove) and light malt. Flavor has pumpkin, pie spice (cinnamon, ginger), and alcohol. Somewhat watery. Okay, but not great. 12 oz bottle, $1.49 from Party Town. Scoer: 2.4 . . . . . . . . . .

11/08/2010: O’Fallon Pumpkin... Aroma: Vanilla, apple cider vinegar (smells acidic); subtle pumpkin and spice underneath. Appearance: Cloudy golden color; thin off-white crown. Flavor: Nice roasted pumpkin taste; maple/honey sweetness; delicate spice (clove and cinnamon); some roasted apple/pear. Palate: Medium-bodied; smooth and slightly creamy. Overall: Not too bad.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Score: 3.1

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2006
12 oz bottle pours a copper color with a tan head. Aromas are nice malty, pumpkin, cinamon, brown sugar and nutmeg. The flavor is genuinely pumpkin tasting like it smells with some clove spice lingering on the tongue. I haven’t had a ton of pumpkin beers, but this one tastes the most purely pumpkin with out tasting fake, and still enjoyable.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 1, 2006
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.
