It looks like pumpkin, smells like pumpkin and tastes like pumpkin-flavored beer! Big aroma of nutmeg. Taste of cinammon and dough. Dry finish. A bit watery and very filtered.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours bronze with a small of-white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, spices, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet, pumpkin pie, and spices. The body is thin, yet this is still slightly enjoyable.

Aroma is pumpkin spice, ginger. Flavor is much the same, also cinnamon, with a malty backbone. I really like the fact that this beer is thin and light on the pumpkin. Ive had pumpkin brews that were just overpowering with the pumpkin. Or tasted like they used cheap ingredients. Recommended.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2006 Pours a thin amber with a film for head. Aroma is light of ginger, and pumpkin pie. Very thin & watery with only a light suggestion of spice and a slight bitterness present in the finish. Not too good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. Aroma: Spicy with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Pumpkin is there, but not as prevalent as I would have hoped. A touch of sweet malt and caramel. Appearance: Medium orange in color and clear. Off white head was thin and fleeting. Not much lacing. Flavor: Spices jump out front in the flavor, as well. Again cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove seem to be the major players. Pumpkin comes through clear with a light sourness. A good slightly sweet maltiness and a bit of caramel. Palate: Medium-light bodied and slightly watery. Medium-high carbonation. Finish was slightly sour. Overall: A pumpkin beer should showcase pumpkin, and this one doesn’t. More spicy with a pumpkin undertone. Not bad, but there are better.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2009 Decent pumpkin beer. The aroma is of the usually list of spices but this beer has the body that many pumpkin ales are lacking. One of my favorites but still never as good as i remember it/ want it to be from the previous year.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very clear pale orange with a thin tan head. Smells strongly of pumpkin spice, clove and nutmeg mostly. Some sweet malty aromas as well.
Tastes lightly tart (surprisingly). Lots of pale malt breadiness then the spices and a nice clean finish. Crisp and dry and surprisingly full bodied. Decent drinker but nothing to write home about.
