I have to say this was a surprise. The smell is wonderful -- pumpkins and cinnamon. For autumn what could be better. The taste was a nice change with spices and pumpkin. I will drink this throughout the fall.

Pours with a huge white head that leaves hardly any lace. Hazy, light amber color. Serious pumpkin pie nose. Light - medium carbonation. Flavor is pumpkin pie, starts sweet and malty, finishes malty, fizzy and a hint of hops. Very good spiced beer. Available in supermarkets in NH for $5.99/6-pak..

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells like pumpkins, not as spicy as I would have wanted. Pours orange with a white head. Tastes like pumpkins but tastes too much like alcohol. It was smooth though, but I donít know something wasnít right about it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Very bright orange color with a creamy looking white head. The aroma is a delicious blend of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice. Smells exactly like a pumpkin pie. Taste begins with a sweet malty taste mixed with hops and gives way to a smooth malty finish. The flavors of pumpkin and nutmeg and possibly cloves are prevalent throughout and last for a while in the palate after the beer is gone. Very tasty beer.

I guess with number 1000 coming up, Iím doing a mop up. This is not a style I like, but I like this one. Looks like honey in a glass, small to no head. Flavor is like a good pumpkin pie, cinnamon, netmeg, and pumpkin. One is about all I want, but Iíll enjoy the one.
