larsniclas (6139) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2006
[Bottled] Golden with s ahort, white head. Some weird sourish, cardboard aroma. Almost flat and rather dry. Weird sweet mouthfeel with, well maybe pumpkin...

EithCubes (5247) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Bottle. Spicy aroma of pumpkin (though I may be imagining that), cinnamon. Hazy orange pour (almost golden) with a large, rocky white head. Spicy notes are more akin to gingerbread than pumpkin pie. Taste is the liquid form of the aroma with just a dash of lemon. Medium-strong carbonation, somewhat dry finish. Lightish mouthfeel. Light breadiness. On the whole, weak!

scania (188) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2006
Bottle. Color like a golden pils. Peculiar aroma and sweet flavor from the pumpkin, which I don’t fancy.

Just picked this up at the Homewood Piggly Wiggly because I thought the packaging was cool. It’s not bad, a little sour at first but a great finish. Probably couldn’t drink more than five in a row...

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - SEP 21, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2006 Pours pale golden w/ a modest froth. Aroma of sweet gingerbread and spice to a moderate degree. Medium nectar with ample residual effers. Flavors of baked cinnamon and ginger bread spice w/ a fruity malt backbone. The finish has a slight bittering. Overall: Easy to drink with everything you want in a pumpkin brew. From aroma to flavor, and finish....solid.

FlacoAlto (3881) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Best By Date December 2006, Sampled September 2006
Pours with a brilliantly clear, rich gold color and is topped by a frothy pale tan colored head. The aroma smells dominantly of pumpkin pie spices. Notes of cinnamon join with ample nutmeg and a touch of ginger. Fairly simplistic in its pumpkin pie spice focus.

The taste is quite dry up front, it tastes a bit tart initially and even has a bit of a bite to it. It finishes with a spicy note of nutmeg and ginger. Perhaps a touch of sweetness in the middle, but I already feel like this beer has been sampled and described to the best of its abilities. This is really quite simplistic. I guess my biggest gripe with this beer is that I want a rich satiating character in my pumpkin brews. If you don’t then this is certainly for you.

desurfer (1252) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Light orange with minimal head. Definitely has the pumpkin/autumny character, but is too thin bodied to get the full effect. Also could use more alcohol to add to the depth.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Fizzy and yellow, looks like a miller light. Smells like a pumpkin pie though, sugar and spice and everything nice. Tastes like a pumpkin pie too. I think its pretty good actually. Thin bodied but it does actually taste like pumpkin.

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Very clear golden body with lots of bubbles and a compact white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is inconsistent... at times I’m getting a full blast of pumpkin pie and all its ingredients, the next sniff it is weak. The nutmeg is the most consistent smell. Flavor is very watery up front and then blossoms into a pumpkin pie aftertaste.

shigadeyo (3296) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Golden color, clear. Lively carbonation with a very effervescent head the went from two fingers or so to absolutely nothing in about 10 seconds. Aroma is similar to apple juice with some cinammon spice. Sometimes the aroma also reminds me of the smell of some bourbons. Flavor is bland and artificial and mostly tastes like spiced cider. There is a hint of pumpkin and spices (mostly ginger), but not really that much. Very thin and watery and very carbonated - a lot like soda pop. This one is very disappointing, even for a pumpkin ale... 12 oz bottle, $1.50 from Belmont Party Supply.
