Bottle. Pours a smallish white head, nice aroma of fresh cloves. Effervescent, causing it to maintain a thin head, but no lacing. Clear orangish yellow. Very crisp and sharp up front with full spice flavor, mostly cinnamon. Nutmeg and cloves come later. Light bodied, but a long creaminess. Faint roasted flavors.I think this is an excellent beer for style. So what if it’s a contract brew. It’s tough to mass produce a spice beer and get it right. chinreallyfat (21) - Chula Vista, California, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Another Ale that is better at the pub than in the bottle. If you like pumpkin pie, then this is for you. DragonStout (1416) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Had this 8 years ago and boy i wish i could get some more.I am rating this from last nites tasting and this is still good stuff.This more of a pumpkin beer not a pumpkin pie beer.Had flavors and color of pumpkin and was not overwhelmed by all the spices.They were there but not dominant.Good stuff sfhc21 (74) - Midlothian, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2007
For some reason, this is one of my favorites. It’s one of those beers that goes perfect on a Sunday afternoon on a crisp, sunny fall day. Full of cinnamon, clove and pumpkin spices. Delicious. Cavie (4718) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Not really a pumpkin ale, but more of a cinnamon and ginger ale. The aromas of the latters are very apparent and actually mix quite well.

It poured a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of spice and cinnamon. The taste was of malt, quite a bit of pumpkin and spice, finishing with a touch of hops bitterness. A very good Pumpkin Ale. Frecklest00 (7) - Alabama, USA - NOV 6, 2013 does not count
My favorite pumpkin ale. I was surprised to see such a low rating from everyone, since I really enjoyed this beer.

Alcoholic liquid pumpkin pie. Very interesting and very pleasant. Smelled exactly like pumpkin pie and had a lovely taste that was similar. 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. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 28, 2006
First off, I only wish that I had tried tihs back in Oct/November instead of late February. Fate is fate though so you just go with it. Anyways, I thought this beer was rather intriguing and can’t WAIT to try it again in said months. The aroma wasn’t too bad with some soapy aroma and a little pumpkin thrown in. I didn’t get nutmeg as some reviewers did. As it warmed up a bit I also got a slight metallic nose too. Appearance was just beautiful with a dark maple appearance and a huge head, although the carbonation was fairly lacking. Mouthfeel was nice and soft, although a bit flat. Flavor was pumpkin, but in a way that was pleasing not distracting. There was some maltiness to it that was also nice, although unlike other reviewers I didn’t get (again) any nutmeg or allspice. Perhaps wishful thinking or just that time of year. Overall this was a nice brew that would go wonderfully during Oct/November. Can’t wait!
