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.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent copper with good carbonation and off-white lacing. Smells and tastes alright; light and pumpkin spice with an average mouthfeel. More lagerish, so it doesn’t weigh you down (filtered?). Exceeded my expectations.

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. Pretty full aroma of cinnamon and spices, pumpernickel, faint ginger bread, some pumpkin and mellow sweet dark fruitiness. The carbonation creates and initial punch of harshness that quickly rolls into pumpkin, cinnamon and all spice. By midway smooth mild pumpkin and maltiness give way to another wave of wintery spices and ginger bread. A little out of the can pumpkin feel and a bit heavy on the spices for my taste.

Sometimes pumpkin beers are good fro the flavour, sometimes because they don’t have flavour.. this is the latter .. Pours a murky orange brown .. light foam ,,no real sticky lacing .. muddles sweet maple and very light spice .. one of the better pumpkin brews i’ve had but ehh.. the best piece of meat the preist had was nun..

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.

Disappointing pumpkin ale considering how good the orange ale is. It’s all nutmeg and cinnamon with VERY subtle pumpkin.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 8, 2008
Possibly an old bottle. Pours with a fizzy-off-white head that goes away completely in about 30 seconds. Hazy amber bodey with some particles floating around. Pumpkin, cinnamon, clovee, nutmeg, and even mint in the potent aroma. Pretty bitter and even sour spicey taste. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2010 Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with a very strong aroma of spice. Taste is smooth and spicy.

PorterPounder (7613) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Dark orange pour with a quickly fading white head, not much lacing. Delicious spicy aroma - pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg perhaps. Same spiciness carries over to the flavor with a little bit of cloves in there as well. Mouthfeel is a tad thin and the spicy flavor fades near the end. Still not a bad novelty beer though.

A actual pumkin ale that smells and tastes just like pumpkin ale. Full of many spice tastes, which might be the only downside to this drink.
