COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Pumpkin and Spices(Cinnamon,Nutmeg,Cardamom,Cloves). This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is heartier, spicier, and more caramelly and pumpkiny than its faint brethren! Perfect finisher on a cool autumn night, or match it up with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream. If you don't agree this is the mother of all pumpkin ales, then you just don't like mothers!

12 fl oz bottle, courtesy of fiulijn. Pours hazy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma is nutmeg and ginger spiced. Sweet and light caramelish and light roasted. Lingering caramelish and spiced flavoured into the finish. Easy and nicely balanced pumpkin spices and malt base.

Ungstrup (29277) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2006
A hazy amber beer with a light brown head. The aroma has very strong notes of pumpkin, but also cinnamon. The flavor is sweet malty, but again with very strong notes of both pumpkin and cinnamon, leading to a slightly dry and spicy end. A bit overdone for my liking.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, dark amber with a small, of-white head. Aroma of cinnamon and cardamom. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel notes and a distinct spicyness with also the cloves showing. Some warming alcohol in the finish. Pure pumpkin pie in a bottle, but actually rather complex and interesting. 011206

oh6gdx (20308) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2008
Bottled (thanks PilsnerPeter!). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is pumpkin, wood and some slight fruity hops. Flavour is pumpkin, lots of spices and salted licorice. Spicy aftertaste along with some hops. Wellbalanced and quite nice.

Cloudy red brown beer. Smooth to dry palate. SWeet pumpkin and malt. Lots of spice - cinnamon and nutmeg. Decent pumpkin beer but over spiced as many of them are!

Hazy amber color. Mellow aroma of cinnamon and caramel, light vegetables. Sweet caramel flavor, with some cinnamon; bold body and warming alcohol. The final has too much vegetables. It’s definitively not my style, yet it’s not terrible.

Amber color. It has the obvious cinnamon aroma, wax, perfumy, lightly soapy. Medium body strength (less than the alcohol content and the name let expect); light caramel flavor and evident cinnamon; ordinary bitterness; dry finish, still with some cinnamon. I’m bored by cinnamon beers.
Guys, next year try something else than cinnamon with pumpkin, maybe bitter almonds…

Theis (13389) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle (Thanks to Papsoe for selling it to us) at home - shared with Mette on Christmas evening, while eating Apflestrudel. Dark amber - white head. A lot of spices - Nutmeg Cinnamon, Cardemom, Cloves - as the label says. Light alcoholic, caramel, peber, berries, light chokolate, not much malt flavor..

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2008
Bottled. Dark amber color, small beige head. Christmas spicey aroma (cardamon, clove). Stronger stuff than "a standard" pumpkin ales. Strong flavor of salted licorice, but with quite short flavor. Aftertaste has more Xmasy spices, middle of the pack season ale.

Oakes (12447) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2008
Very autumnal with its golden dark amber colour. Warming, delectable aroma with lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, gourd with caramelly, brown sugary malts. Rich palate is boozy, not like overly alcoholic but with the stylish complexity of a fine spirit. Subtle but confident spicing. Lots of pumpkin in the background. It’s 88 F and I’m feeling like trick or treating. Gotta like a beer that evocative.
