Hazy dark orange and copper with a lightly off white head. The aroma had some spicy nutmeg and cinnamon. The pumpkin smell was light with some apples. The taste is definite pumpkin rind with some nutmeg. There is also a little bit of cinnamon. Good for those that like more pumpkin in their pumpkin ale. joeymacaroni (309) - Wagontown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Pours amber brown with a light tan head. Nose of spice and malt. Taste was heavy spice, caramel malt, and strong citrus hoppiness, but not a lot of pumpkin pie. Finish was malty. If I tasted pumpkin, it was uncooked pumpkin. It’s good, but it’s not like the rest of the pumpkin ales out there. SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2008
<i>12oz bottle:</i> Crystal clear amber pour with a thinnish tan head. The nose is nicely balanced with the pie spices playing off the caramel sweetness of the malt. The body drinks like a lager, thin and refreshing, with notes of cinnamon, caramalized pumpkin and nutmeg. Finishes a bit chalky on the back of the tongue. A well balanced, drinkable brew but not something that is going to keep you warm during the cold months. jeff789 (1423) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Not much to speak of in terms of aroma, the spices seem muddled, they are there, but muddled... Good flavor, a bit spicier than some other pumpkins, but quite a bit thinner... I think it might be too spicy for its body, but it tastes good.... MOboy (510) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 29, 2008
Thin, dissapating head. golden, light amber, honey colour. Pretty enough. Smells of sweet malt and pumpkin pie spices, not so much pumpkin. A good medium-full body. Taste of pumpkin pie spices, no pumpkin and slight hop bitterness. Did I mention the spices? Clove in particular. Overall, it’s a typical pumpkin (pie) beer. Forgettable.

<b>9/27/2007</b>: Allspice and a trace of nutmeg dominate the aroma of . Its appearance is a clear Autumn-like color (amberish) with a thin, off-white crown. A good malty base has a layer of spice that sticks to the roof of the mouth and creates a film there. There is lots of cinnamon and nutmeg in the flavor, but the beer actually smells spicier than it tastes. It also has a medium-body and a powdery texture. This is really a spiced beer as no pumpkin is detectable in either the aroma or flavor. All summed up, it’s okay.
<i>12 fl. oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #66 for this beer.</i>
12oz bottle poured into snifter. Hazy brown color with a thin off white head, thin and lacy. Aroma has a nice pumpkin pie scent to it with a nice hint of vanilla. Flavor is very sub par, very little pumpkin flavor. Only got a little on the back end. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2012

Bottle. Dark golden orange with Minsk head. Way too much allspice and cinnamon. Couldn't finish the bottle. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2013
It’s ok. Lots of spice, cinnamon, cardamom. Light and easy to drink. Brown and not much of a head.
