Bottle. Amber pour. Big pumpkin and spice aroma, with the nutmeg and pumpkin aromas fairly well balanced. Not much pumpkin in flavor - mostly malt and clovy spice, which made it feel unbalanced. A touch acidic.

12oz. Bottle: Smelled malty and a bit of sugar. Poured orangish brown color. Small tan head. No lacing. Flavor was malty and a little roasted. Ok to drink. A bit acidic. Overall, not as good as Dogfish Punkin.

My very first pumpkin ale, did not know what to expect, but the pumpkin and spices are most def. there. Quite nice beer and the color is the most beautyfull amber/pumpkin like.

Best pumpkin I’ve had to date, probably. Aroma is clovey, nutmeg, though pretty absent. A lot more spices show up the taste, with a nice pumpkin kick.
...whew just got sidetracked. Ummm, good beer. Maltiness is nice, could use a bit more hoppage, perhaps.

not a big fan of pumpkin ales but it was smooth and if you like the taste of pumpkin you will like this beer.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2007 This is another pretty generic pumpkin ale. I will admit that it went down very easily .... if you’re looking for something different taste wise I suppose you could do worse.

beh. i guess this was okay. Had a bit of pumpkin spice to it, but i didn’t like it too dry and bitter it seemed. Blue Moon pumpkin ale destroys this.

Pours an average amber with small off white head that slightly laced the glass. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, some cinnamon and malts. Flavor is pumpkin, nutmeg, all-spice and some cinnamon. Also some roated malts. A little thin but a decent pumpkin ale. These pumpkin ales need to be unfiltered in my opinion. Add a little depth to the feel.
