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 (5808) - 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.

amber/copper pour with small white head...aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon...flavor is quite similar with a spicey and bread-like finish...very filling, and quite enjoyable for something very basic

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 O’Fallon Pumpkin Ale 12 oz bottle Recent bottling, carved into 09/06 Medium pour in a stein. Poured clear hayish copper with a fizzy quickly diminishing 1/2 inch head. Smelt of light pumpkin and spices. Tasted of light sweet pumpkin pie upfront, with a lightly bready malt kick and a short finish. Mouthfeel was light, fizzy, watery and slightly astringent. Overall, this pumpkin beer doesnt try to impress with taste or complexity. Its more of a good introduction to the style if anything.

Another nasty one by OFallon. I’m just not a fan of this brewery I guess. I am going off old tasting notes. I LOVE pumpkin pie and this beer smells a lot like that. The good stops there, like other OFallon beers i’ve had, they COULD be good but I always get this dirty water flavor going on with them. Has good flavors hiding in there like cinnamon, maybe brown sugar or something but the dirty water thing ruins it for me.

Pours a golden fog that settles to a orange cloud of a beer. Only had a 1/4 inch of head that fizzed out after 30 seconds or so. The smell has hint’s of tart apple, lemon zest cinnamon, and a heavy baked pumpkin pie. Taste is weaker than I expected. I was hoping for more pumkin, less citrus bitter. It’s smooth enough and consistent with it’s taste. The best part is the cinnamon/nutmeg finish. THe mouth feel is a little heavy on the carbonation for a spiced beer. It would have added to the cream if they had mellowed the bubble effect. Overall this isnt at all a bad pumkin beer, but if you have anything else as an alternative, you might have better luck their, like Lakefront Pumpkin.

kramer (5433) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2006
12 oz bottle, via KUEric. Pours a murky orange color with minimal to no head. Sedimented bottle. Fruity and spicy aroma with clear nutmeg, clove, pumpkin, and cinnamon. Light aroma of yeast and orange rind as well. Very heavily spiced flavor, with cinnamon and cloves most prevelant. Generally very sweet with pumpkin showing thru on the finish. Medium bodied with very fizzy carbonation on the tongue. Overall, a little too sweet and highly spiced, tiring the palate by the end of the bottle. Main problem with this is that I don’t think that they started out with a good base beer to begin with. You can’t dress up a weak thin beer with some spices and get an awesome product.

One of the better pumpkin ales I’ve had. well balanced flavor (most are overly strong pumpkin) and a suitable body and finish.

Very Clear Copper/Orange Tints Coloring and White Skin. Pumpkin Spice Aroma: Nutmeg and Cloves Notably...Some Sweet Malt Flavor, Light Pumpkin Spice..Taste Drops Off At End for a Dry Light Finish. Like Many Pumpkin Ales, it Seems the Flavor Stand Up to What the Aroma Promises.

I suggest that SpringsLicker try this beer in a hot tub during a Nebraska snow shower. I found that to enhance the beer drinking experience. My favorite thing about this beer was the strong aroma of cinnamon and cloves. The pumpkin flavor is strong up front and not masked by the spices. The finishing sweetness is well balance with the emerging spices at the end. Tony the brewer told me that he brews up a "tea" of spices and adds that to the finishing tank. He uses the canned Libby’s Pumkin pack and lots of it. Any homebrewer knows that this method is a real mess at racking time. I hope that this labor of love continues annually for Tony and Fran as I’ll make an annual pilgrimage for this beer!
