Didnít like this at all. Faint aroma, anemic red/brown body. Slight pumpkin aftertaste. Very light spicy palate. Not very impressive.

Pours amber/orange with a small white head. Faint aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor was light pumpkin, a touch of cinnamon and some nutmeg with a thin and watery plain finish.

Pours a clear copper color with a meager thin head. The aroma is faint, Iím not getting much from it at all. Sorta of an odd potpourri smell. Any pumpkin spice is virtually absent. The flavor leaves a lot to be desired. Itís astringent, overly sweet, nearly sour. Over carbonation doesnít help the flavor, but rather feels intrusive and needs to be turned down a notch. Other flavoring includes pale malts, light toastiness, a hint of cinnamon, pumpkin not too strong. Decent amount of hop bittering at the end. I hate being overly negative about a beer, but there really isnít much to hang your hat onto.

Bottle. Mild initial spice aroma. Medium amber cloudy color. Not very pumpkiny. A lil tart. Eh.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Definitely on the drier side of the pumpkin beers I have had. Lightly tart and fairly spicy. Rather odd, and not entirely appetizing.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Pours clear orange, dark amber. Small film head. Aroma of dirt, pumpkin, and spice. Flavor is dry, bitter, pumpkin, cream and spice and has a dirt hue to it. Must be the organics. Palate is tart. Too tart and bitter, and not sweet enough for a fall pumpkin ale for my tastes, and I don’t even like sweet beers. This one could use a little more creaminess though. It’s just too dry and bland on the finish.

Bottle. An unclear amber beer with a frothy white head. Weak aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, caramel; metallic. Same flavors in the taste, metallic and somewhat bitter finish. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

tgncc (2885) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2009
pale yellow orange in color, more pale than expected for the style. The aroma is pumpkin, squash, vegetable matter, minor spices. The flavor follows. It tastes too much like raw, unprocessed pumpkin. Some cinnamon and nutmeg, not a lot for this style. The finish is not bitter, but earthy, funky, stale and vegetable. The mouthfeel is medium. OK, hardly great.

Bottle I think from vintage estates. Smell is sweet spicey pumpkin, but not overwhelming. Taste is unsweetened pumpkins and asssociated spices. Typical pumpkin beer. Sometimes a tad creamy. Finish is somewhat mild bitter medicine. Not bad overall, I guess. Sometimes has that old lager thing going on in there.
Earlier Rating: 9/26/2008 Total Score: 2.6
Must be new, very few ratings. Sweet punky aroma. Pale brown at first when poured. Clear pour goes swirling towards end of bottle. Taste is a blend of pumpkin spices and bitter ale. Decent friendly sparkly carbonation. Veggie unrefined back of throat impression. Palate indicates good carbonation. Some lingering bitterness in the finish.

fluffy (1782) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2009
aroma is typical for the style of beer of course-nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. but its too sweet, the spices are off balanced and its a little "raw" tasting of the pumpkin flavors. the aftertaste is missing any hoppiness and its got a funky bitterness and stale bread flavor that lingers. id take Shipyardís or Dogfish Headís pumpkin beers any day over this.
