Oh man, this stuff is putrid. íTis the season for pumpkin ales, and my advice is to stay far, far away from this one. Pale yellow color, quickly diminshing head. Aroma is of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg, with very faint beer aromas. This stuff tastes like someone took a bottle of Bud Light, added a teaspoon of nutmeg and cinnamon, and some artificial pumpkin flavor. Yes, itís that awful. Thin, watery, way too much cinnamon...there is nothing I liked about this beer.

I guess you either love or hate some herbal brews, I did not like this one, the flavor was way to fake. As though spice was just added to the beer. It has a very watery thin consistency. Tastes like bad pumpkin pie.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2007 This is definitely one of the worst beers Iíve had. It pours just like a cheap high life or something of similar quality. The head tastes just terrible and so does the beer. I beet a pumpkin pie with rum in it would be a much better idea involving pumpkin and alcohol. The remainder of these will be given away.
Second try 2.3

THis pumpkin ale is dead to me. Its flat, tastless and should be tossed out with yesterdays trash. The only cowboyís fire this pitiful ale will be lighting is satanís

Setteled nicely with the crisp autumn air of the vineyard. spirits were high and the ship yard helped resonate this feeling. Loved the flavo. was extremely strong with the cinnamon though. cheers

A little lighter colored than other pumpkins Iíve had lately. Thin fizzy head. Really spicy aromas. Lots of cinnamon and pumpkin with a little nutmeg. Thin body. A little bit of toasted malt flavor, but this primarily about spices. A whole lot of cinnamon, with accents of pumpkin, ginger, nutmeg, and maybe brown sugar. Most people here are really knocking this stuff because of the thin body, but I really didnít mind at all. A nice autumn quaffer.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2005 Very light color. Tastes more like a sweet cinnamon beer than a pumpkin one. No truth in its name, but I did like the taste. Just not what I was expecting. So it will lose some in the overall.
Re-rate---even less like Pumpkin and not even a good beer at all.
