hopdog (13258) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Poured a medium hazy amber color with a smaller white head. Spices and lighter pumpkin on the nose. Lighter tastes vs. the aromas. Fizzy body. Middle of the road as far as pumpkin ales go.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 (Bottle) This ale poured a deep cooper color with very little head. Had a strong pumkin and cinnamon aroma. Tasted like pumpkin pie with a bitter bite at the end.

they did a great job with heavy use of pumpkin and spices to cover up what would be a very boring beer. low on "beer", high on spice. still thin, but if you like pumpkin and allspice, this one’s for you."

crwills brought this one and thanks. Cinammon and nutmeg is pronounced in a lager, orange with a white head. Astringent and fizzy carbonation.

12oz bottle-pours a foamy light tan head and copper/orange color. Aroma is thin pumpkin, then metallic, spice?/herbal. Taste is plenty of nutmeg then thin pumpkin, then metallic, spice?/herbal.

Looks nice. Deep, golden, hazy ale. Smells like fresh-baked pumpkin pie. Smooth, malty, spicy flavor, but too thin for me. Watery mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

Sampled from a 12 oz. bottle. Poured mostly clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma was mostly the spices (cloves, et al.) with some malts present as well. The flavor was mostly spicey, with some semi sweet malt and perhaps pumpkin. This was my second attempt at a pumpkin beer and I’m thinking that its just not my style. The aroma of theis one was less offensive than the first.

DocLock (11191) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Orange/copper colored, with a lot of pumpkin spice and some pumpkin puree in the aroma. The taste was spicy, with some finishing pumpkiny elements. Medium to light palate.

3.2
Fin (11070) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2008
Bottle from Jose Pistolas, Philadelphia 17-11-08 Pours a hazy orange amber with no head and no apparent carbonation. The pumpkin is a little syrupy sweet, its good but possible a bit contrived there are spices aplenty, a real spicy nose and a real autumnal feel to it, its fine but just too, too spicy.

Hmmm, not the worlds best pumpkin beer. Pours an amber color with very little head. I smell some lagerish aromas and some spices. No real pumpkin in the nose. Flavor has some pumpkin pie spice, light malt and some grassiness. Not so good.
