Bottle. Nice orangish golden color. Smell reminds me of Tang and spices - similar to spiced cider. Tastes like watery pumpkin. Needs more oomph for me. Easy to drink but needs to step it up quite a bit.

Cinnamony nutmeg pumpkin aroma. Average yellow color. Very light nutmeg flavor, mild and unadventurous overall.

Light yellow pale lager looking pour with just a bit of white head that doesn’t last. Smell is like pumpkin pie, with nutmeg and a metallic smell as well. Not over the top, but pumpkin is noticeable. Very light bodied beer and equally mildly flavored, and slightly undercarbonated for sure. Easy drinking, but not full flavored to really be great. My first pumpkin beer, and it at least made me interested in trying out some more similar to this.

Shag (2647) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2007
A golden color with a moderate white head. The aroma contains pumpkin, ginger, and cinammon. This one doesnt seem to contain much in the malt department so you get smacked in the face with the pumpkin flavor. This is like a blonde ale with a crap load of pumpkin and spices thrown in. The mouthfeel is a little buttery though. Overall not bad for a pumpkin beer but not complex in the least.

Golden beer with a small, disappearing white head. Aroma is musky--a bit like socks. Flavor is very thin, with too much bite. The finish is slightly sweet, but almost non-existent.

The Dan Journal #51. Tasted 10/22/06. Final selection from the autumn tasting. 12oz bottle. Bright and golden. Spicy citrus aromas. Honey melon. Medium bodied with an apple cider palate. Similar flavors. Cloying finish. Not my favorite pumpkin.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Woof. Hate this beer. Brownish amber with an off white head. Tastes like a mash of sweet potato, pumpkin pie, gingerbread, and cinnamon. All that’s missing is the turkey, the cranberry and the green bean casserole and you would have Thanksgiving in a bottle! Far too sweet and in-your-face with the pumpkin.

fiulijn (15440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2007
Golden color, poor head. To me this is simply a very ordinary Golden Ale, without character, with a light cinnamon aroma and flavor, as it is often associated to pumkin recipes.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2007
Aroma of real ginger-beer, sweet and slightly spicy. Pours a nearly headless transparent pale yellow. Tastes like some sort of ginger-ale concoction with lots of vanilla and a touch of pulpy pumpkin, but very little. Thin body, low carb, more pop than beer.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 Poured an golden yellow almost orange color with a thin white head. Pumpkin and spice flavors come through in the aroma, and follows just the same in the flavor. Not an overwhelming pumpkin flavor which is good. It is a light bodied ale that finishes smooth with the spice on your tongue. This years version is not as good as it used to be. It is really watered down and overcarbonated with very little spice or pumpkin for that matter. Really disappointed in it.
