Dark orange-amber. Light fizzy head. Strong pumpkin and spice aroma. The question is how much pumpkin and how much flavouring. Cool novelty beer but I cannot see anyone drinking more than one bottle. Full mouth flavour of cold pumpkin pie.

I enjoy pumpkin ales and this one was above average. The spices were much more prevelant than the pumpkin flavor, as this one tasted like a fall fest style beer with a touch of pumpkin. Nice amber color and the flavor was complemented by a slightly higher touch of alcohol. Some breadiness to it and a noticeable presence of some degree of bittering hops.

Great pumpkin pie and spice aroma. Flavor was mild, pumpkin, spice, just like Thanksgiving. Very good and refreshing without being over the top.

I generally dont like pumpkin ales, but if anybody could pull it off DH could. I really like this beer. Nice sweet rice flavors of pumpkin spices mixed with a great full flavored beer. Need I say more.

Bottle courtesy of Ross. Pours a slightly hazy amber-orange with a small diminishing white head. One sniff of the aroma and I think of Xmas. Pumpkin with brown sugar and lots of spices: nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice -- theyre all there. Flavour follows the aroma, pumpkin and spices, and adds lots of malt and finishes a little boozy. I found the spicyness in the nose and taste mellowed out gradually as I drank it, I would have preferred it stay really spicy. Medium bodied. I liked it, its a good Pumpkin beer, but I was expecting better.

12-ounce bottle. Pours medium brown with a short-lived thin whitish head. Basic sweet caramel maltiness on the nose, with a hint of dryish pumpkin around the edges--maybe more mental suggestion than anything. Medium body, light carbonation. The attack is basically the same ordinary caramel, but the finish is sweet and spicy, with cloves, pumpkin, and just a whiff of hop for balance. Interesting, even sessionable beer but still really a novelty style for most occasions.

Decent, a little weak in the maltiness, but is not over the top with the spiciness like so many of these in this category. Very mellow, with obvious flavors of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon, perhaps a little cardammon. Caramelized brown sugar sweetness, nice for a pint.

Orange in colour with a very thin head. Cinnamon and nutmeg aroma with notes of alcohol. Flavours are mostly cinnamon and ginger, light bodied with a very dry finish and a very odd yeast after-taste. Just not my stuff....

Bottle Pours a hazy amber with a decent off white head, which produces good lacing. Has a delightful aroma of pumpkin, brown sugar, all spice, cinnamon, and a touch of nutmeg. Has an aroma of a ginger snap cookie. Just smelling this one gives me incredable amount of excitement. The carbination is soft. Has a light body. A soft duration, and weak finish. All the aromas come out beautifully in the flavor of this beer. Its a wonderful beer. Gives me visions of good halloween deserts. Im slowly becoming a big fan of pumpkin ales.
