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 (6200) - 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 (9120) - Indian River County, 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 (4778) - 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 (5100) - 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.

Wow! Now this is a Pumpkin beer I could really get used to drinking year round! Iíve had several and this one is by far the best. Itís high alcohol content is nicely masked by the pumpkin pie flavor. Schlafly makes some great beers! I would highly recommend this one!

This is still one of my favorite beers. Schlafly is a wonderful brewery and Iím rarely disappointed in their work but this is really a gem. On tap this 8% veggie beer has enough alcohol to make it distinctive in the booming pumpkin arena. It has a very well balanced mix of spices on top of a good beer foundation. It has the expected pumpkin pie taste. It is nearly as good in bottle as on tap.

Sammy (8571) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2006
Smells like pumpkin, with some cinammon and brown sugar and alcohol. Light Orange colour, no head. Carbonation right up there as if club soda, but pumpkin taste right there, not sweet nor bitter. A good representation of this blooming style. Thanks for the hitchhiker, jpm30.

Bottle from Duane. Solid pumpkin ale. Nice spicy pumpkin and cinnamon aroma. Some beers smell great and the flavor doesnít follow through, but this one tasted as good as it smelled. Good malt backbone with plenty of pumpkin pie flavor. Alcohol is hidden very well; I had no idea this was 8%. Good brew from Schlafly
