poured amber/orangey with a good white head. smells yeasty and like pumpkin pie and all the spices that go along with that, and tastes spicy and a bit sweet. i found it a bit thin in flavor, but that could be just me.

Not a bad beer by any means, but like most DFH beers you can expect to pay a lot of cash for this brew. This brew, although decent, is a poor value. The beer looks nice, presents a good head, pours a nice amber color and leaves lacing. There is definitely pumpkin in both aroma and taste. Cloves and other spices are in there too, it’s quite subtle. One of the better pumkin beers out there, but not worth the $9.00 a 4-pack.

Not quite up to the standards of normal DogFish head beer, but certainly a drinkable beer that could use a taste. The malts are appearent but not overly rich, very little hops is presnece with great Autum spices that remind of pie and fruit cake.

12 oz bottle found at Florian’s Market in Auburn. Orange, almost red body with a half an inch of off white head. Smells vegitable-ish and somewhat hoppy. Very tasty. This is a beer that tastes much better than it smells. Tastes malty and spicy. Pumpkin is also present. Medium body. I like it. Probably will be getting it again if I can find and afford it at the same time...

Bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of pumpkin and spices. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, pumpkin and light spice with a smooth lightly spiced finish.

Bottle. Mahogany color with a fluffy off-white head and tons of visible bubbles cascading from the bottom of the glass to the top. Mild but spicy nose, a bit yeasty. Notes of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, pumpkin, all the spices you’d expect. Also a faint metallic smell. Flavor is actually quite nice. Nice and spiced, warming, the cinnamon and nutmeg show through well. Sweet, but not overly so, creamy. Mouthfeel is good, not too thick, well carbonated. This is one of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had. Not overly spiced and not overly sweet. The nose could use some work, but it’s still a nice fall beer.

12 oz bottle. Clear orangeish amber, decent white head. Spicy nose, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. Nutmeg and pumpkin take the lead in the flavor, plus a light brown sugar sweetness. The pumpkin flavor tastes especially fresh. Not a big fan of pumpkin beer, but this is good.

superg22 (9) - USA - SEP 18, 2006 does not count
watery, light,aroma is mildly pleasing but too much in the family of budvar (if thats a negative) coloration is beatiful. one of the prettiest pores out there, an october orange. a good halloween beer.

3.5
TChrome (1481) - North Richland Hills, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Beer pours orange amber color with a fizzy, totally dissipating head. Aroma is light pumpkin aroma with some nice spiciness, especially nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavors follow the aroma. I have never been big on pumkin ales, but this is an enjoyable ale.

3.4
WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Smells like pumpkin pie ... slightly vegetable, with pumpkin pie spicing. Tastes like pumpkin pie, sweet malts, sweet spices of cinammon, nutmget, alspice, and of course pumpkin. Finish is nicely bitter, but with off-putting vegetable notes. It’s from Dogfish, and it’s as good as a pumpkin can be, but the combination of pumpkin pie and hops and malts may not have a lot to recommend it.
