illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Bottle from Friar Tuck in Savoy, IL. Pours a deep copper with a huge tan head. Very nice aroma of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and berries. Medium bodied. Nice moderately sweet malt backbone, which has a flavor of dark caramel and raisens. The pumpkin spices take the center stage, and the hops stay out of the way. Spices carry through to the smooth finish. Excellent session Pumpkin Beer.

Rating 1071. On tap at the Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood MO. Clear dark dark copper with no real head. Served in a snifter. The nose was pumpkiny, just a tinge of alcohol but lots of spice. The taste is all over cinnamon, with lots of clove pumpkin and nutmeg. In contrast to other pumpkins that I have had, in particular Buffalo Bills and OíFallon, this is much more palateable and drinkable. Nice brew.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2007
Bottle courtesy of foureyedgeek. Amazing pumpkin pie aroma with all the spices, cinammon in particular - canít really say much else about that. Clear amber-brown with thin off-white lacing head. Medium-thick body with medium carbonation. Starts with a dry spiciness with awesome pumpkin pie spices and sweetness infused in a light amber ale. Light floral hops and bitterness. Pumpkin spices throughout with spicy finish and mild apple sweet finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Pours a clear copper orange with a nicely-lacing ring of white head. Aroma of fresh earthy pumpkin, cinnamon spice, and toasty caramel malt. Body starts sweet and caramely malty with a good viscosity, and nice nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin flavor. Finishes with a touch of warmth and lingering holiday spice. One of the best pumpkin beers Iíve had. Thanks to Duane for the bottle!

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Sept 06 bottle. Beer is clear, light-medium amber color. Head is virtually nonexistent.<P> The aroma is good. Malty with light notes of caramel, toasted grain, cookie; Hoppy with a light note of flowers; Moderate miscellaneous notes of cooked pumpkin flesh, ginger, light notes of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Aromatic net is pumpkin pie custard cradled in a flaky whole-wheat crust. Yum!<P> The flavor is lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly acidic, trace bitter with a long, lightly bittersweet, trace acidic finish.<P> The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is average, but fragile.<P> Vibrant pumpkin quality achieved without loosing the beeriness of the brew. Nice.

Ernest (6160) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Sep 06 bottling. Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie), with notes of allspice/nutmeg, brown sugar, pumpkin. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation. Reasonably good nose, but very sweet, simple, and syrupy overall.

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle... Clear, amber ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The nose is all crystal malt and heavy spice... cinnamon and nutmeg. Smells like pumpkin pie to me. Heavily sweet flavor, again, with lots of crystal/caramel malt notes and heavy spice. No semblance of balance... none intended, Iím certain. Full-bodied and creamy with modest carbonation. Finishes sweet and spicy. Not one of my favorite styles. This one, in particular, is way too sweet and spicy for me. Kudos to vyvvy for sending this bottle my way!

Pailhead (4633) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Very nice spiced aroma with lots of ginger, nutmeg, and clove. It pours a bright transparent amber with a minimal white head. The flavor starts with lots of nutmeg and light cinnamon. The finish is more ginger and clove with some light grassy bitterness. Pumpkin itself is rather faint. The mouthfeel is suprisingly syruppy for a pumpkin ale. One of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had in quite some time.

heemer77 (5098) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 5, 2007
From a bottle, thanks to Duane. The body is medium orange with a light khaki colored head. The aroma is strong with pumpkin and nutmeg. There is also a little bit of roses in this. The taste is fairly spicy with nutmeg and cinnamon. Pumpkin tastes are only present in the background. A buttery finish rounds this one out. A strange pumpkin ale that needs to have the spices backed down a lot. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and that distracted from the beer.
