Tmoney99 (14982) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Bottle 12 oz. Pours an orange dark amber color with a moderate off-white head that diminished quickly. Complex spicy pumpkin aroma. Medium body with creamy texture. Good complex flavor of a liquid pumpkin pie. Very interesting and good brew.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep amber with a small bit of head. Slight aroma of cinnamon and pumpkin (or should that be punkin?) Good solid flavor for a vegetable beer. Very full bodied. Out of any of the pumpkin beers I have tried so far, this one easily tops the list.

Superb aroma spicey nutmeg cinnamon all assault the olefactors. Orangish brownish hue for color. The head is almost no existent. First taste the nutmeg hits you then the cinnamon. Brown sugar ties it together and keeps it from getting too sharp. Very different then anything I have ever had.

Dorwart (2609) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Decent sized off-white head. Creamy on top with good carbonation. Spicey aroma with ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon with a soft malty background aroma. Color is a bright orange amber. Crisp and dry flavor with a nice touch of spices. This is not overly spiced like some of the other pumpkin ales out there. Just the right balance. More soft malts. Goes down easy with just a hint of alcohol. Finish is spicy on the tongue and pretty clean. Kind of a surprise coming from DFH. Used to seeing a lot of extreme beers coming out of their place but this is mellow and very well balanced. The best pumpkin ale I have had to date.

3.5
Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Pours a dark amber color with a thin and quickly dissapating head. Spicey pumpkin aroma with a little bit of brown sugar. Pumpkin, some cinnamon, and plenty of allspice in the flavor with a little bit of malt. Not so much a pumpkin pie flavor, just a good spicey flavor. For pumpkin pie flavor try Cottonwood. This beer is a surprisingly good pairing with Lemonpeel Stilton.

3daddict (139) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Pours a medium orange brown with an average sized head that receeded quickly. Malt, pumpkin spice and brown sugar aroma. Pumpkin and spice flavor stays largely in the nose, taste is more malt and brown sugar. Good texture and carbonation in mouthfeel. Best Halloween beer I’ve tried to date.

redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Smells like pumpkin pie more so than that other pumpkin beer, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, alittle citrus, sweet. Pours orange/brown. Deffinitely a beer drinkers pumpkin beer, and its awesome. Sweet at first, some spiciness, kind of a dry finish. Light on the palate. gets better as it warms.

3.5
Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 17, 2005
Pours with an orange body topped by a thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s sweet and spicy with a note of pumpkin, very similar to pumpkin pie. Medium bodied, smooth and slightly warming.

zug4abby (288) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 15, 2005
This was an oddly enjoyable beer. Poured an amber color with a small head and medium lacing. I love pumpkin pie and this beer tasted just like it. With strong nutmeg and cinnamon aromas and tastes. I don’t think I could drink more than one beer in a sitting, but enjoyable nonetheless.
