Did not have much aroma, and I did not smell any pumpkin. Had a very weak color. Disappointing just a very bland ale, with no real pumpkin taste. The beer finished clean without any after taste.

Hazy orange pour with a white head. Aroma is a little pumpkin and nutmeg. Taste is artificial. Tinny. Has pumpkin and nutmeg flavor but off taste dominates the drink. So-so lacing. Tinny aftertaste.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Tap at Shipwrecked. Filtered orange-tan. Thin, oily head. Clean and straightforward, with classic pumpkin pie spices. Quite sessionable for the style, not overly sugar, well attenuated I suppose. After the disturbingly bad IPA, this is quite a pleasant surprise. Standard, but drinkable and well done.

tmoreau (2315) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Sampled as part of a flight "plank" of the current drafts at the brewpub bar. Poured to plastic with a hazed, orange/amber, with an off white/ecru head, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was perfumey pumpkin and only light spicing. A little less than medium bodied, the flavor offered mellow malt, and a hop bitterness that was moderate and somewhat lingering. The finish was on the dry side. Not a kick-ass seasonal, but this sample was fairly pleasant.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Chunky dark amber with a rapidly disappearing tan head. Aroma of spice, cinnamon, pumpkin, yeast, malt, nutmeg and light cardboard. Taste of pumpkin spices, malt, yeast and mild off-flavors.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, pours a hazy orange. Taste is bland, a hint of pumpkin, no flavors of typical pumpkin ale spices, does not taste like pumpkin pie. It’s like they added some pumpkin extract to the blonde ale recipe. Not a fan.

drywallman (327) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Brought this one home from Egg Harbor. Poured dark amber with the off-white head. Grainy malt with good pumpkin spice and not overly sweet. Hops balanced with a straight bitter edge as appropriate. This is one pumpkin beer you could drink more than one of.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2009
On tap 9/1/08: Pours a transparent copper amber with a clingy-lacing white head. Aroma of mild pumpkin character and pale malt. Body starts with decent fullness and some earthy fleshy pumkin flavor with a touch of grainy toasted malt and bittering hops. Finishes smooth and bittersweet.
