Golden brown, thin white head. Aroma is all pumpkin supporters, clove, nutmeg. etc. etc. Taste is all spice, pumpkin, and .... soo tired of rating pumpkin beers... most of the same. Good effort!

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.

[2006 GCBF] Starts out great, tons of pumpkin pie aroma, and the first sip is wonderful. Unfortunately it goes downhill, as the last taste is a strange sweet brown ale.
