Nicely pumpkiny and spicy, finishes with a very straightforward light beery flavor. Sweet flavors, initially sweet taste, finishes drier. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves. Pleasant mouthfeel - thick. I donít really know pumpkin ales, and they wouldnít be my go to beer, but this one is very pleasant.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2010 Pours a dark amber. Stong pumpkin pie aroma. Taste was liquid pumpkin pie w/ a kick. Lots of cinamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, cloves, vanilla; some alcohol taste. This was the fullest bodied pumpkin beer Iíve ever had and definitely the best one Iíve had. Didnít taste as artificial as others. Has a relatively high ABV. Best pumpkin ale Iíve had.

Bottled. Poured medium coppery-brown with a one-finger, dense cap of beige head.. rising carbonation. The aroma picked up slightly sour caramel and nutty notes with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg around.. not a whole lot of pumpkin meat to note, but not bad. The flavor found caramel and some pumpkin meat at the core.. nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves around.. spicy and warm on the back-end. Medium-bodied and crisp on the palate.. quite dry on the back-end.. felt good and tasted good.. wish I had more.

Pours a dirty orange with a thin white head. Aroma of nutmeg and sweet pumpkin pie. Typical pumpkin flavor with a spicy drying touch on the back end. Pretty light bodied and thin.

Thin off-white head of fine bubbles. Spices and pumpkin with some sweet malts and a bit of butterscotch. Color is a dark copper brown. Flavor is mild spice and pumpkin. Some gingerbread and toasted grains. Slightly gritty mouthfeel. Noticable but light alcohol presence. Finishes spicy and dry. A pretty decent pumpkin brew.

Copper colored liquid with a tallish beige head. No doubt this is a pumpkin pie spice brew from the first sniff. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger all seem to prevail in the nose. Iím looking for either a little crust or malt, but Iím not finding much. Still a nice spicy aroma. This is a bit rough when cooler, and slightly mellows as it warms. Initial cinnamon bite, followed by a little bit of toasted malt. Reminds me of the slightly burnt edge of crust. Quite thick and nearly mouthcoating. This is more a sipper than one to quaff. The finish and linger have a burnt edge that continues from the prior thoughts. Slightly warming. I like it, in a small dose dessert kind of way.

Pours a nice orangish-brown with small head. Intense aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg. Flavors are pumpkin spice with roasted grain and bitter hop finish. Just a bit too sweet to be entirely successful and a bit thin in the palate. Worth a try.

Sampled at the 2009 Great Nebraska Beer Festival. Pours dark amber with a huge spiced aroma of pumpkin pie spices. The flavor has big pumpkin pie spices as well but the beer is slightly chemical at the finish. It seems schizophrenic. Not something I would ever drink again.
