I do love pumpkin so was excited to try this one. Medium bodied pumpkin color with a creamyish head. The aroma was of beered pumpkin innards--and I realized on the instant, this was not going to be quite the delicious spice monster as Buffalo Billís version. This beer is delicately spiced giving the easy pumpkin flavor head billing. Authentic pumpking taste with moderate sourness. Similar to Elysianís pumpkin ale.

Spicy nose, orangy-amber color and fluffy head. Meaty body full of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumkin flavors - like pumpkin pie. Pretty smooth and a great balance of complex tastes. One of the better pumpkins Iíve had.

This isnít as bad as I thought it would or could be. Kind of overwhelming on the nutmeg but still a good blend. An excellent fall beer. ;)

Light orange body with big off-white head. Aroma is strong nutmeg, with some pumpkin and crisp hoppiness underneath. Flavor has nice hoppiness accented by the pumpkin and accompanying spices. Despite all that, a bit of unpleasant bitterness sneaks into aftertaste. Still, very drinkable, very fall, very nice.

Never had a pumpkin ale before this one, its is definitely unique, a good change if you want to try something different. Its pretty good, smooth and crisp, great to drink on a fall day watching football or give it to trick-or-treaters.

Light pumpkin and spice flavors - was not syrupy. The background ale in this provided a nice bitter finish.
