GCBF. Pours a reddish brown. Aroma of pumpkin pie (duh!). Tastes much the same with medium carbonation and a light body. I liked it.

I thought this beer was terrific; most of the pumpkin ales Iíve tried (Elysian et al.) just donít taste like pumpkin pie, which is what I want to taste...I mean, letís face it, if youíre drinking a PUMPKIN beer, you donít want it tasting like gourds. You want it to taste like a slightly sweet, nutmeg/cinnamon/clove glass of pie, which is what this beer tastes like. Good stuff. I had a few.

Wow, this beer has some kick. Brown with a small tan head. Aroma is cinnamon and nutmeg all the way with a hint of pumpkin. Flavour is spicy, with noticeable ginger and nutmeg and cinnamon, tastes like pumpkin pie puree. Finish is bitter and somewhat harsh. Great for something different but it was hard to finish.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 Deep brown colour with orange highlights and a thin tan coloured head that quickly fades. Aroma of nutmeg, coriander, and clove. Flavour is okay, spicy bitterness, slightly metallic on a faintly malty pumpkin accented brew. Body is quite thin and there is a harsh bitterness on the finish. Could have been much better
