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.

Orange amber.Intensely spicey aroma and flavour, mostly cloves and mace. Caramel malt lends a sugary pumpkinish quality I suppose. alexsdad06 (10262) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2007
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 Iím thinking that its just not my style. The aroma of theis one was less offensive than the first. marcus (10138) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 24, 2010
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. sebletitje (10048) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2008
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.

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. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2004
Brown-orange beer that pours with a nice lasting beige head. Smells like a pumpkin pie. Good carbonation. Tastes very sweet fading to a medium-long finish that tastes of clove and cinnamon. This is like drinking a pumpkin pie, and I have to say that as strange as that sounds I like it. onceblind (9399) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2010
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. Itís wonderfully balanced, even has some bitterness which I find lacking in some Pumpkin Ales, but overall it just didnít 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, itís just not worth getting again. 3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Bright and murky soft orange glowing color with a small white head, but an overall attractive appearance. Nose is pumpkin-soap and potpourri, craft-store or bathroom store smells... perfumy oranges, ginger, apple, pumpkin and overripe peaches. Dear lord it tastes just downright horrible... like sucking on designer soap, the stuff that you’re not supposed to use as soap... waxy, syrupy and soapy, this is pretty god damn disgusting... end of rating. bb (9241) - 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
