This is the first spiced brew I’ve had. I had little hopes for such beers but am pleasantly surprised by the subtelties in this beer. The cloves and ciniman really come through but do not overpower. Mouthfeel and aroma are a little weak. I’d like to try more spiced beers like this.

Initial impression when pouring - looked like pumpkin. Very pleasant taste, hints of pumpkin and cinnamon.

Smells of pumpkin, spices, rubber and vomit...seriously. Tiny, fizzy head with bubbles filling the glass. Rich, amber color and, at first taste, not so bad. Full, spicy flavor...can definitely taste the pumpkin and pices but the aftertaste is RANK! Like "chewing on a pen" said one friend. Glad I tried it, but ewwwww. Not again.

Not too shabby, but not quite what I expected. Poured from a bottle, quite thin...hazy orange color. Spicy notes, and a crisp, pumpkin flavor finish.

Wonderful pumpkin ale that actually has balance pumpkin spice flavors and bitter ale elements. This is one of the better pumpkin ales I’ve had, right up there with DogFish Head.

I did not enjoy this one. Kind of skunky. It indeed had that cinnamon-pumpkin flavor, but it’s not really my style.

Not bad for a cheaper pumpkin beer. Its very smooth with a pumpkin taste. Cool looking bottle. Happy Halloween!

Decent. Certainly a novelty beer, but worth trying. For flavor, there is a lot going on, it’s full of flavor. Great aroma for Fall time, could be too strong in the heat of Summer. Highly carbonated with absolutely no head. Overall, too spicey to drink more than one or so, but a great conversation beer.

It had almost zero head, no lacing and an unappealing aroma of nutmeg and cloves. The flavor is nutmeg, sour, some other spices that were not quite clear and an astringent aftertaste. Mouth feel is not great-a bit heavy and dry. I would not drink this again.
