Draft sample, Bavarian Lodge. Nose is full of pumpkin pie spice: nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, a little ginger. Color in the little glass is light brown. Taste has those usual nutmeg, cinnamon and other spices, and leaves you to guess whether there’s actual pumpkin in here. But I caught something else: a distinct creamy or fatty impression that immediately made me think of pumpkin pie crust, whipped cream or even a pumpkin mousse. Don’t want call it "buttery" because that’s not diacetyl. A nice surprise for this kind of brew.

A hazy, orange-brown pour with a small, white head. The aroma has banana, pumpkin, and some bubble gum. It has a medium body with average carbonation and smooth texture. The taste is sweet with a quick finish.

Aroma is spices, cinnamon and malts. The flavor is cinnamon, malts, spices and a slightly sour/tangy finish.

Tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy orange pour with a clingy white head. Nice cinnamon and nutmeg aroma. Similar flavor but more reserved. Decent.

Wild Onion Brewing’s Pumpkin Ale (5.4%) is the last of the pumpkin beers I picked up in Chicago. It pours deep copper gold with a decent head. A slightly spicy cinnamon with that apple pie aroma I got from many mid-West pumpkin ales. Medium to light bodied with a scratchy carbonation. The taste gives me cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and a sweet fruitiness. I think the sweetness and spicing is a bit overdone and needs a gentler touch for my tastes.

Pours a burnt orange, semi cloudy with light cream head. Pumpkin and sweetness upfront with spice and hop bitters on the back. This is a good beer for people who want something halfway between a sweet rich imperial pumpkin ale and an less aggressive ale with just a hint of pumpkin and spice.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The can was the best part of this beer. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a cloudy orange-caramel color with a medium sized creamy-soapy off white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sour, tangy and industrial with notes of corn and cinnamon. The flavor was tangy, industrial and corny with a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg and yeast. Medium finish and medium body. Not good.

Does not have much of an aroma. It has a very pale color. Very generic beer taste. Maybe a hint of pumpkin, but overall not much flavor. Local brewery, so I really wanted to like it. One of the best looking cans on the market.

Thanks to Gil. The hop flavor in this seemed a little out of place. Brighter in flavor and appearance than some other pumpkin beers. Serving: Can
