2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drinkable but disappointing, not enough head, and not enough pumpkin. I expected more pumpkin or pumpkin spice or aroma.

I had the Blue Moon Pumpkin the night before this, and I think this was the loser of the comparison. Yellow, rather than a more rich color of amber, the flavor here was much more of straight up pumpkin, with a sense that it was an under-spiced pumpkin pie (the Blue Moon had a lot more to it like gingerbread or pumpkinbread). Average palate. Not bad, and actually my wife quite liked it, and I think there are more and more decent pumpkin beers out there--itís not an inherently bad combination.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2006 First thing I think the bottled version has more flavor than tap. Very clear golden pour, thin white head. A cheap pumpkin beer that actually has some pumpkin flavoring, wish there was a little bit more itís kinda on the weak side, but you get some pumpkin and the spices that go into a pumpkin pie, not bad just wish there was a little more flavor, still more than others Iíve had. A beer anybody could drink.

pretty good, poured a straw-golden color with a white head. A mix of cinnamon and coriandor in the aroma. Taste was yeasty at first but finished with a sweet cinnamon pumpkin bite.

Bottle. Pours a nice pilsner-looking straw colored beer with a thin white head. Strong cinnamon nose and full allspice. Hot on the tongue with some bitterness..or is that the cinnamon? A bit of vanilla. Dusty on the palate. A nice pumpkin.

Golden color, nearly no head. Cinnamon and squash nose. Light and weak cinnamon taste, also squash, cookie dough and apples. Lively carbonated. I really get used to those Pumpkin stuff ;-)
