Clear amber-orange color, aroma of cinnamon and pumpkin. Pumpkin and cinnamon flavor spicy and different. Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2002
Very spiced, pumkin pie nose and a thin white head. Thin body and a lot of carbonation held this one back from being very good. Allspice, mace, bready malt, and pumpkin hide behind a wall of fizz. Very spicey with a tasty yet short lived finish. Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2002
This really wasn’t too bad. Most beers that try to put some wierd fruit or vegatable it it come out gross, but this one actually tastes like pumpkins. It could use a little less carbonation and more maltiness though. It is what it it. IneedAbuheer (69) - Ingleside, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2002
Quite spicy with a good malty consistency. Unfortunately, it’s overly spicy with a lack of good pumpkin flavor. A decent, drinkable pumpkin beer, but would have like much more of a pumpkin flavor. Darkover (1538) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 Dark golden color, almost no head. Cinnamon and pumpkin aroma. Pumpkin and cinamon flavor. A little over carbonated.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2006 Quite a good pumpkin ale; dry and clean with lots of nutmeg and spice on the tongue. Tastes more like cold liquid pumpkin pie than a beer, though some nice malt qualities underlie. Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2002
Medium thick, deep gold. Lots of spice in this punkin pie - from start to the long finish. tasty. Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2002
Dark gold to copper color, large bubbles around the edge. Very spicy aroma and taste (nutmeg and cinnamom maybe?) Spice sticks around through the lingering finish. bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2002
Yummy nutmeg goodness! Brownish-orange color, sweet spicey aroma. What a great fall beer! Dogbrick (13144) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2002
The strong aroma of pumpkin and ginger was really promising on this one, but the flavor really didn’t deliver. With a little more pumkpin flavor and a little less carbonation I think it would have been a "must-buy" every year around Halloween. As it stands though it was like a lot of fruit beers I have tried where the bark was better than the bite. I am going to try to hunt down a Pumpkin Stout!
