Coppery-orange in color, with an off-white, thin yet resilient film that left some lace. Pumpkin pie aroma with spices and heavy nutmeg, all of which carry through to the flavor. A little thin in the mouth but full-flavored. ’Tis the season, so indulge your craving.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2006 On tap at the Milwaukee location. Clear orange-golden body under a thin white head. Spicy nutmeg nose, not much sweetness to it. Pumpkin in the flavor along with some sweet (but very light) pale malt; cinnamon and nugmet as well. Noble hop bitterness in the finish. The beer does taste like pumpkin pie just w/o the custard-sweet goodness. A weak amber w/ pumpkin spice thrown in. Re-rate 10/31/06 - about the same!

Someone did it! After my having some pretty bad interpretations of the pumpkin beer, this one is really tasty. Clear bronze color. Gentle pumpkin aroma, also showing hints of the pie spices. In the flavor, there is some fruitiness up front, then the pumpkin flavor comes in mid-finish, with a dry hop grassy bitterness taking over the late finish. Nicely balanced and interesting. Well done. On tap at West Des Moines, IA, location.

After drinking this I’m not sure why anyone would put pumpkin in a beer. It seems like just an excuse to play with spices, in this case, too much play.

Prevalent pumpkin pie aroma. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg in both aroma and taste. Like drinking a pumpkin pie.

A pretty good interpretation of an Autumn classic.

Never had a pumpkin beer before, so I went in with nothing to compare to - but a real nice brew - the aftertaste was almost like the aftertaste when your done eating a slice of pumpkin pie - couldn’t handle a whole case of the stuff though - but real good

granted this is the first pumpkin ale I have tried, but I really enjoyed the great aroma at every lift of the mug. And the taste was excellent!
