Headbanger (3545) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2010
12oz can 10/4/10 (Courtesy of a friend)-52į in Lager glass-Pours a clear orangish amber with a small off white head. Aroma of pumpkin spices:nutmeg, cinnamon, and a little allspice. Taste of the same with more spices and a bit of actual butter taste coming through as well. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite easy to drink. Nice brew.

Draft sample, Bavarian Lodge. Nose is full of pumpkin pie spice: nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, a little ginger. Color in the little glass is light brown. Taste has those usual nutmeg, cinnamon and other spices, and leaves you to guess whether thereís actual pumpkin in here. But I caught something else: a distinct creamy or fatty impression that immediately made me think of pumpkin pie crust, whipped cream or even a pumpkin mousse. Donít want call it "buttery" because thatís not diacetyl. A nice surprise for this kind of brew.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Itís a hazy orange brew with a short-lived white head. The aroma is all pie spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. Not too overwhelming. Moreso in the flavor, but if pumpkin was in the mash, Iím not tasting it. Drinkable, but one was enough for me.

This poured a hazy orange. Aroma was defintely spicey autumnn. Mild pumpkin and the right amoint of spices in the taste. Nice body. Iíll have to head over there.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2006
On tap at my brokers office party. This is the first pumpkin beer I can remember ever having so I donít have a comparable base to rate this against. Plenty of pumpkin pie spices throughout this brew with cinnamin, cloves, nutmeg among others. Probably would have rated this higher if i thought I could drink another one.

Liquid pumpkin pie, anyone? The overwhelming pumpkin and cinnamon flavor and aroma were quite good. Not well balanced though, the flavors makes a quick exit in exchange for a rich sugar sweetness. Good autumnal refresher.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy-translucent orange-amber with little head...spicy vegetable-fruity nose, pumpkin but also sweet potato, cardamom and cumin....fairly dry body with lots of pumpkin character, malty and lightly herbal, not pie-like at all...sweetness becomes evident near the finish as it warms.

Brown/Gold Coloring with White Head. Pumpkin and Spices Aroma. Malt Background with Pumpkin and Cinnamon/Cloves Spices on the Tongue as Well. Bit of a Tang in the Mouth and Light Hops at the End. Pretty Tasty Pumpkin Brew! Much More Satisfying Than the Oktoberfest.

badgerben (4633) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Dark gold color with no head. Lots of spices in the aroma. Cinnamon, allspice, and cloves stand out. The taste is everything the aroma promises with a healthy dash of bitter hops. There is a slightly dry and musty qualtiy that could be from pumpkin, but otherwise it just appears to be a dry, mulled beer. Pretty tasty!
