3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bomber. Aroma: Strong spicy aroma of the usual suspects (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg). Not much pumpkin in the nose. Light caramel malt aroma. Appearance: Poured an amber/orange with a very light tan head. Head was frothy but small, but had good retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: The spiciness almost burns the tongue. Way over the top with the spice. But as I drink more it grows on me. Pumpkin is hard to pick out behind all the spice, but is there. Light maltiness and a touch of caramel. Palate: Medium-high bodied. Carbonation was a little high and reinforced the spiciness that my tongue felt. Overall: Worth a try, but would like to get more pumpkin and less spice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle for $5.99 from Buehlerís in Delaware, OH. Deep, mildly tan-looking brown with a large, creamy, off-white head; retains a significant ring. Aroma is cinnamon and cloves, sharply sweet malt and rotting vegetables along with caramel. Flavors of vegetable, sugar, and very light caramel; very light alcohol warmth; nothing special. Thick, slightly fizzy, creamy, and fairly sticky. Overall, nondescript and unimpressive; the spices are awkward; the least satisfying $6 beer Iíve had to date.

Pours a dark orange. Smells like very spicy, cinnamon-y pumpkin pie. Flavor is very interesting... cinnamon, cloves, caramel, pumpkin... spices are a bit overpowering though. Bring out the pumpkin and caramel malts a bit more and this would be fabulous.

Bottle: Amber color with an off white head. Aroma, nutmeg, cinnamon, and all those other pumpkin pie aromas. Flavor, spices, caramel malts. Really nice pumpkin ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Iíve had a couple of pumpkin beers...some better than others. This is somewhere in the middle. It smells like a candle store. It tastes over the top like cinnamon and some pumpkin. You canít tell that itís 8% abv, which I think scores major points because itís such a retarded concept for a beer. I mean, who would want more than one of these at a time. At least this one packs a punch. It would be a great beer to drink with a slice of apple pie at thanksgiving or in a vanilla floatie.

Off-the-chart tastes, thanks crwills. 2006 edition. Very orange, a little crowning head, and lace in the glass. All kinds of spice aroma. 8% alcohol. Significant malting but still on the spicey side with nutmeg, cardommon, cinammon, ginger. Altogether too much.

I really think a bit too much spice is used in this its hard to put your nose on pumkin when theres a whole spice rack/ definetly an intriguing beer and i wonder how well it would be aged and for how long. also if a scoop of whipped cream on top. overall its good cheap and i will drink for the holidays

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Clear amber brown with a tan head that leaves a skin. Now this is how a pumpkin ale should smell. Nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamon. Begins a little sticky with sour spices. Baked apple and, I guess, pumpkin. Dry potato finish with dandelion leaf. Some odd notes of old spices.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured clear orange color with a large creamy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy pumpkin, cinnanon and nutmeg aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer and good selection for 1700.
