I noticed this at the store around Christmas time, then picked it up in March when I saw it on clearance. This is definitely a seasonal beer, and in March seems about as appropriate as Nat King Cole singing O Holy Night. While most winter beers are still beers, and really could be enjoyed any time of year, this pumpkin pie-flavored beer is a holiday novelty. drazil91 (41) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2009
The pumpkin aroma is unmistakable, the flavor falls just short of how good this smells. denzo45 (40) - Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2012
It’s spicy, pumpkiny, and watery all at once. It’s a decent beer but there are many better fall beer alternatives than this one. brewbattles (40) - - SEP 17, 2013
We did a blind taste test between this beer and other pumpkin ales to determine which one is the best pumpkin ale for the season. The beers were Shipyard Pumpkinhead, Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat, Buffalo Bill’s America’s Original Pumpkin Ale, Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale, and New Belgium Pumpkick. Check it out:

Most delicious beer i've ever had, a normal but very good beer taste with a hint of almost pumpkin pie flavor, simialer to the smell only the smell has a much stronger pumpkin pie smell, Not a very strong Ale flavor at all, and not a very strong beer flavor it tastes like it's 2% alcahol when its realy 5%, further more the smoothest beer ive ever had it runs about 7 bucks for a 6 pack so its a bit expensive but other than that perfect.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 Bottle pours a nice amber color with a very small head that quickly disappears. The beer leaves no lacing and carbonation seems low. Obvious pumpkin flavor tastes like a mix between a fruit/weisse beer and an ale. An OK beer for the pumpkin/halloween season. explosivebeer (36) - Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2008
This beer pours very little head and what’s there dissipates quickly. It is very light and refreshing with some sweetness and obviously pumpkin, but very mild doses of both and an even more subtle hint of cinnamon. It finishes clean. By itself it was underwhelming but I can imagine it would be great paired with spicy food or on a hot day. SpencerH (33) - Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2011
spicy aroma, tastes of pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, little bit of cinnamon. Spices were present but not overpowering. Appearance is nice and orange and slightly opaque. Taste isn’t huge but the pumpkin is definetly there, would drink this again. animal8788 (32) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Strong, spicy, pumpkin smell. Amber in color with white head. Tastes like a pumpkin air freshener. Very spicy taste, somewhat acidic. A lingering aftertaste. I would not order this beer again. IdahoBeer (28) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Overall, this beer smelled of pumpkin, but really tasted watery. I was expecting more of a pumpkin taste.
