On at at the Dragonmead Brewery. Poured a medium amber color with a small sized head. Aromas and tastes of pumpkins and spices. Not overly spiced nor not overly pumpkin. ClarkVV (6839) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 30, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2006 Light orange color, little head, not terribly cloudy. Aroma has lots of spice and a touch of malt. This is another heavily spiced pumpkin that concentrates more on spicing than it does on the rest of the beer. Has more body and slightly more malt profile than Buffalo Bills pumpkin, but still, the spicing makes for a dry almost astringent flavor, while there is little else to taste here than the spice.

On tap: Spice and light pumpkin in the aroma. Transparent amber with a small white head. Light spice in the fron with light pumpkin. Spice reallh comes on in the finish and becomes the dominate flavor. jsquire (4563) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2004
On tap at the brewery. Orange amber color with a foamy beige head and a big nose of pumpkin pie spice. The smell reminded me of mom’s pumpkin cookies. Taste of cininmon, clove, pie spice and a white sugar sweetness. Palate is so dry you can almost taste the powder of the spices. A little light in body, and not enough beer here to support the spices. But I still like this style for an Autumn treat. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2005
On tap at Dragonmead. Mostly clear orange body, medium light tan head. Typical pumpkin pie spice aroma, with nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. slightly thin, cinnamon body with nutmeg and light bready notes and an earthy, rather chalky finish. Somewhat thin. Nothing special, I’m afraid.

Tap: Pours amber with little head. Aroma was spiced pumpkin pie almost like the yankee candle. Little pumpkin flavor and really strong spice. Overall very smooth pumpkin ale. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 25, 2005

Amber colored. Has a sweet aroma like brown sugar. The combination of spices gives this a mildly sweet flavor. Tasty, though I wish there was just a little more to it. joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2009
medium brown large white head. moderate carbonation. a little bitterness up front followed by somewhat indiscernable spices, that aren’t immediately identified as traditional pumpkin pie spices. the spice lies in the background, without much else to the beer. flawed recipe firstsip (733) - Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Had both on cask and standard. Cask is a opaque, milky brown with a more vegetable quality to the pumpkin flavor. Normal is an orangey-amber with a much brighter malt character, and pumpkin spice character shines through more.
