Bottle poured a clear yellow-orange with a lasting white head. Aromas of cinnamon, pumpkin and ginger. Palate was medium bodied and smooth almost creamy. Flavors of cinnamon and pumpkinwith a sweet finish.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 [At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A hazy orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of cinnamon and pumpkin - both very powerful notes. The flavor is sweet and again with powerful notes of cinnamon and pumpkin, but the body is thin. To me this is a Christmas beer - drink it with spiced Christmas cookies.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2005 Aroma is splendid, perhaps the best of a pumpkin ale I’ve come across. Just like worn by the women of Egypt such as Nefertiti the queen -- the aroma boasts of high-quality ladie’s perfume. Appearance is nice and solid, impressive for a Halloween offering. Flavor is similar to the aroma but much more along the lines of conventional pumpkin; could use more hops for backup, and perhaps some additional malt. Spritely and bubbly in the mouth, as if to toast the fattening holidays to come. One of the better pumpkin brews for sure!

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle. Yellow-Orage color with small white head. Very carbonated. Aroma is very spicy, pumpkin and cinnamon. Flavor similar. Lighter look than I expected but the flavor is full and delicious. Of course I love the style, so others may disagree with me.

rlgk (18199) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2005
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2005) Golden, small white head. Cinnamon aroma, ginger, wheat and some cherry notes. Flavor brings pumpkin, cinnamon, sweetish, quite different but not that bad.

omhper (23497) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2005
Bottled. Clear golden. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon and gingersnaps. Sweet with fizzy, rounded mouthfeel, low bitterness. The spices makes in interesting, but the mouthfeel is not very attractive.

Nice pumpkin spice aroma. Flavor is thin and somewhat watery. Taste reminds me of soda water with some pumpkin flavor added. High carbonation with little head.

Drank it from the bottle. Burst of nutmeg and pumpkin instantly.. then tapered off. The taste lingered pleasantly until the next sip. Not overpowering at all. Of all the pumpkin brews this season this one takes the whole pie. Try this horse-humper and see what I mean.

Dark yellow, hint of orange color, white head, lovely aroma of nutmeg and pumpkin, flavor separated this one from the rest of the punpkin beers i have tried, most are heavy on the spice and have some sort of an acidic bite, this ones flavors were more reminiscent of a cold slice of pumpkin pie with just a slight amount of spice in the finish. Quite enjoyable in my opinion.
