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.

Tasted from a 12 ounce bottle purchased in Denver, Colorado. Orange appearance like a Belgian Ale. Citrus-y, weirdly spiced beer. Not a good Pumpkin beer.

Pours orange with a thick beige head and a pumpkin aroma. There is a harsh pumpkin pie flavor with lots of spice. A bit overwhelming.

Orange amber.Intensely spicey aroma and flavour, mostly cloves and mace. Caramel malt lends a sugary pumpkinish quality I suppose.

Pours out a deep orange with a bubbly white head with no longevity or lace. Smells like roasted pumpkin, cinamon, and some mild hop bitterness. Taste is much the same as the aroma, but not as heavy on the pumpkin. It’s wonderfully balanced, even has some bitterness which I find lacking in some Pumpkin Ales, but overall it just didn’t do it for me. Somewhere between the bored pumpkin and the lack of head retention I gave up on this beer. The taste is fine, it’s just not worth getting again.

bottle pours golden/copper with a thick white head. Aroma of light spices, cinnamon, aroma reminded more of a mix between orange/pumpkin. Taste, malty, sweet. Maybe too sweet for a pumpkin ale. Very weak taste of pumpkin. As with the Buffalo Bill’s Orange Blossom, you get this mix hops/yeast that gives you the impression of drinking a soapy soda. I am still wondering where the pumpkin and the spices went? Just too weak, missing a good kick.

bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Bottle. Rich amber beer with a big off-white head. Big pumpkin-pie spice aroma with some backing malt. Astringent malts and pumpkin pie spice flavors. Lighter bodied. Lingering nutmeg, cinnamon, etc

blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Pumpkin pie spice aroma, with cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor seems a bit off, with apple juice, cinnamon and other spices. Decent.

2.6
DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Yellow-orange, mildly hazy appearance. White head quickly fading to minimal. Bubbles on side of glass. Pronounced, strong carbonation. (artificial?) pumpkin aroma, and not much else. Pretty much just watered-down pumpkin. Medium sweet taste. Boring bare-bones pumpkin ale.

3.2

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small white head that dissipates quickly. A sweet pumpkin nose, light spices. The flavor is nice; smooth and easy pumpkin, light spices, almost musty. A nice pumpkin ale- I appreciate these from time to time.
