Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2006
Golden clear colour with a little head. Nice christmas aroma of cinnamon and orange peel lot of aroma. Not the same taste as the aroma, some flavour of malt, spices and with a little fine and tasty finish of pumpkins.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2006
(Bottle) Pale amber/orange colour with frothy, quickly disappearing, white head. Malty and very spicy nose with ginger, cinamon, cardamom, clove and unripe banana. Hints of honey as well. Cinamon takes over after a while. Strange, spicy taste with cinamon, ginger, clove, notes of citrus and honey. Slightly thin with short finish (luckily), a bit artifical. Definitely interesting, but more strange than good. Is this what pumpkin tastes like? I’m not really impressed.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2006
nice golden copper, very strong pumpkin flavor that overwelms the rest of the beer, some maltiness with strange mouthfeel and aftertaste

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - OCT 25, 2006
12-ounce brown bottle date notched five months out. It pours a bright dark gold with orange hues. Well carbonated but a slight head. Big cinamon aroma then a solid combo of light malt, caramel and moderate pumpkin spices - all within reason. Matched with a light-medium body and medium mouthfeel, it is overall very drinkable.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Golden, slightly orange with no head. Aroma is very vegetal, with standard pumpkin spice background. Flavor has a certain fruitiness going on, that I can’t pinpoint. almost Belgian like. Clove and allspice? in the finish. Very weak overall.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2006
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Malty, spicy aroma with a light caramel sweetness. Cookie flavor witha light spicy note. Light dry, sweet and spicy finish.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 23, 2006
First time with the pumpkin beer. Orange-brown pour with a bubbly head. Aroma is close to gingerbread. Taste is the same, with the pumpkin coming out. Spicy and sweet, but watery. A nice little beer.
