beerbill (3267) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold with a sudsy head that disappeared in less than a minute. In fact, it was a head that I would expect to find on top of a glass of soda instead of a beer. Very effervescent. Scant aroma of spice, difficult to identify. Slight aroma of pumpkin as well as grassy notes. Pumpkin and spice are very subdued in the flavor. Watery and thin. Boring would be an apt description. I wish I hadn’t bought a six pack.

MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle: poured yellow with a slight orange tint to it. Small head. Very very light cardamom aroma. Little else. Flavor is like water. Crisp but seriously lacking any real taste. Light spice. Maybe my tastebuds are screwed up but I don’t taste much and I don’t have a cold.

madsberg (9650) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2006
Bottled. Golden coloured. Quite clear. No head. Cloves, vanilla and other christmasspices in the nose. Has some fruity notes as well. Flavour is like indian chai. Cardamom and cloves. Has some sweet fruity notes as well. Is quite light bodied. Ends on a spiced note. Quite smooth and easy to drink, if you like the very spiced edge.

joergen (19645) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle. Clear golden coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and cinnamon. Flavour of caramel, spices, fruits, cinnamon and cloves. A bit watery.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Pours a boring clear golden with small head/film. Aroma is slightly spicy, but funky and acidic pumpkin is there also. Flavor and body is very thin. Little comes through. Almost no pumlkin flavor and it has a corn-like aspect. Cheap corn finish. The label is the best part of this beer.

Holdwine (1071) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2006
A wide range of ratings for this one. I liked it. A nice solid wheat for a foundation. Crisp spiciness slightly muted by a trace of damp malt on the nose. The flavors follow with a decent spice mixture. Crisp finish.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2006
12oz Bottle. Sice and herb notes on the nose. Orange body with disipating head as usual for this type. Flavor was at times punkin malt, next drink watery next drink spicey, back to watery man the flavor was like jekel and hyde. Little hard on the spice and some bitter. Odd beer if you wasnt to say anything about it.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2006
bottle. Aroma: Ginger ale-like in the spice. Slight pumpkin and maybe a bit of apple. Appearance: Clear and dark gold in color. Very lively bubbles. Head was white and rocky, and dissipated rapidly. No lacing. Looks almost like a sparkling cider. Flavor: Spice in the nose barely presents in the flavor. A little nutmeg and some cinnamon with a touch of ginger. Very mild pumpkin flavor. A touch of malt. Slight tartness right before the finish. Palate: Light bodied and watery. Medium-high carbonation. Clean finish. Overall: Bland and uninteresting is an understatement. Save your money and skip this one.

Horrendous pumpkin brew. Base brew doesn’t comprehend blending of nutmeg and spices. Try drinking a mixture of oil and water. It’s like drinking two pieces of crap. One into the mouth, then one down the hatch. Best piece is the label. This is one step above a drain pour.
