Wow, this was absolutely excellent. I'm a big pumpkin pie fan so this baby measured up just right. At first I was a little concernced that it would be too sweet, but that wasn't the case at all. This beer had a wonderful blend of pumpkin and spice, a great mouthfeel and a beautiful color. This was my first pumpkin ale but definitely not my last. Great job Bill!

My first experience with a pumpkin ale. Cozy looking label. It tastes pretty much exactly like I expected. Pumpkin taste with all kinds of sweetness, quite like pumpkin pie. Not bad at all but I don't think I would drink a pumpkin ale as any more than a novelty beer. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 9, 2002
Light orange body with a light tan head. Aroma is pumpkin pie. Flavor is fairly mild hops, topped by pumpkin, nutmeg and allspice. Nice, but nothing you'd ever have a hankering for. khayman70 (153) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2002
A very nice spiced ale. I have had both this and New Holland's Ichabod and prefer this. The flavors blended nicely and this beer goes extremely well with cake donuts. I look forward to this beer every fall. MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 2, 2002
Clear amber-orange color, aroma of cinnamon and pumpkin. Pumpkin and cinnamon flavor spicy and different.

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 (1545) - 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. Rib Eye (148) - USA - OCT 29, 2002
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.
