3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

Draft. Very nice pumpkin aroma with slight cinnamon scent and decent head. Dark amber look, thick. Very sweet but not too sweet. Has a nice kick too it and the alcohol hides well. Well balanced and good autumn brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(2006 Vintage) Certainly more enjoyable than the average pumpkin beer, but the cinnamon level is a too high. The cinnamon washes out the other spices. The beer is surprisingly dry.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours amber copper with a one finger thick off-white head. Aroma of spices, alcohol, pumpkin pie. The flavor is smooth, alcohol not as present in the flavor as in the aroma, spices, pumpkin. Good body, great brew.
