Pale golden orange pour thin white head, light sticky lacing ..... aroma of pumpkin spices and lightly earthy mostly spicy cinnamon some ginger and nutmeg .... taste is of pumpkin spices (cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg) and some earthy pumpkin with light sweet malt and not overbearing on the flavors just right missing the clove ... a decent little pumpkin ale finishes dry and spicy

Narnad (1471) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Found in St. Louis on a 99 cent rack, sold as cans. None of them I have seen in my hometown which is only about 30 minutes away from this brewer. A very hazy copper brew pours out with a very fast fading white head. Nose of the brew is very spicy with a light cinnamon, strong nutmeg and light allspice. Flavor is a spice bomb. All spices detected in the nose are about 10x greater in the flavor. Very overpowering and there is no "beer" qualities detected. Body is very light with very low carbonation. I feel this beer is highly attenuated and with the strong spices, makes it feel way too light. Not a beer I would recommend to folks.

tmoreau (2526) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Poured to a Czech-pils glass with a clear, orange/gold color, modest, off white, bubbles and cream head that diminished rather quickly to a ring and film, leaving some ribbons and spots of lacing. The aroma was biscuity, with perfumy notes of pie spices as nutmeg, light cinnamon, ginger, and light, fruit-like sweetness. The flavor added some moderate hop bitterness, light, syrupy sweetness, with body that was on the lighter side of medium, and light dryness to the finish. Drinkable, but typical seasonal offering to help with the leave raking, which has now turned to snow removal.

17thfloor (2432) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2010
A can made for kids. Pours an orange amber, clear glowing, with a tall frothy white head. Aroma is fairly nice, pumpkin pie spice, tea, sweet and sour malts, lots of clove. Flavor follows, big clove, cinnamon, seems like some real pumpkin in here, sour maltiness, light bit of hops, like pumpkin PBR, gritty finish with a bit of alcohol. Watery medium bodied, chalky with soft larger carbonation.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Can from 17thFloor. Thanks! Not sure on the appearance, as I drank it from the can. It did have nutmeg and a hint of clove, but it was mostly crystal malt. Reminded me more of an amber ale than pumpkin ale, though some of the spice came on later. Not fantastic, but not too bad either.

deyholla (6829) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2010
Can. Pours a hazy mild orange with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma has lost of crisp malt with just a bit of pumpkin and spice. Flavor brings the pumpkin out more with a nice growing spice in the finish to round out the beer.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2010
12 ounce can. Pours a dark gold with a thin white head. Aromas of pumpkin, cinamon, cloves and nutmeg. This stuff actually tastes like pumpkin or sweet potato pie. I am suprised at how good this is.

MaBeer1972 (1361) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Poured from the bright orange can into my favorite glass. Nice looking light orange brew with a good frothy head. Spicy bouquet aroma. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, but buoyed by the spices. Some sweet bready malts and fruit. Drinkable enough, but not in the top group of pumpkins Ive had.

Ok. Before I say what Im going to say about this, I want to emphasize that I have had had about ten pumpkin ales in the past and I have never said this about any of them: Whoa, this really tastes like pumpkin pie. I am not saying that that makes for the best pumpkin beer but there is simply something about this that reminds me of the creaminess of pumpkin pie more so than any other spiced beer Ive tried. Id say the spicing is maybe more subtle than most but then again so is the actual beer character. I am not sure if actual pumpkins are used in the mash on this one but perhaps the overall mildness lets the pumpkin taste through more than it would otherwise. This is an orange colored brew w/ a thin head and some spots of lace. Nose is mostly cinnamon w/ something of an amber ale hanging out in the background, it seems. The carbonation is nice and this is a little sweet but somehow the palate is still a bit thin feeling. Pumpkin ales are always a bit of a novelty it seems but you could do much worse than filling your glass w/ this stuff on a cold, October day.

Dark golden color with a thin white head. At the base you have a descent ale that has the typical characteristics youd expect. Its hoppy with a hint of caramel and is mildly grainy with a slightly dry finish and plenty of pumpkin. However, it is not overpowered by nutmeg and cinnamon as most pumpkin ales tend to be. An ale with pumpkin, as advertised.
