Amber pour with a slight off white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweet malt. Taste is moderately sweet with a weak body and an oily light carbonated finish. Not spicy enough or full enough for the type of pumpkin beers that I like esjaygee (3902) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2013
On tap at Great Dane downtown. Amber with a thin white head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, mace and pumpkin. Taste is spicy but not quite there with nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel and pumpkin. madmitch76 (26413) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2010
9th October 2008. GABF. Clear brown beer. Refreshing and crisp. Full on fruity flavour. Dry finish, very flavoursome! triguy84 (235) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Just add whipped cream and you have pumpkin pie! Pumpkin pie color, aroma and taste. Not overpowering. Nicely done. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2008
A nice beer overall, nice bright pumpkin flavors. Vibrant semi-clear orange colour wih a small white head. Aroma is faint of nutmeg and baked pumpkin. Flavors are decent, a little weak at times on the spice otherwise a generous amount of pumpkin keeps this beer alive adn well.

Sampled on draught at the downtown Madison, Wisconsin brewpub. Pours a clear golden copper amber brew with a decent off-white head that quickly dissipates to thing off-white head and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of light caramel and golden grain malt, some nutmeg and just a hint of pumpkin. Taste is light to medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain and caramel malt, a hint of pumpkin and nutmeg. Finish is slightly watery with a slowly disappearing nutmeg and spice aftertaste. jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 12, 2006
An amber/orange brew with a minimal head. Nice pie aroma (cinnamon and allspice) that is followed up on the tongue, some pumpkin also. Enough oil on the tongue to allow it to linger. Spices help too, of course. A fine pumpkin, better than in some previous years IMO, when it has had a bit of detergent flavor. 2006 is a winner.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2005 On tap at the Madison brewpub. Poured a clear medium-golden with a light white dusting. Home-cooked aroma of pumpkin pie filling, brown sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon... somewhat subdued, but quite pleasant. Flavor really followed the aroma well, with a short finish of pumpkin pie with a wheaty crust. Light-bodied on the palate (but not to the point of being watery), and quite smooth. Good pumpkin ale, but a little spice-heavy. hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Aroma of nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Aroma is all smaice with just a tiny hint of malt. Clear golden-orange with a thin, non-existant head. Sweet, pumpkin flavor with a fruity yeast character, is that a hint of grassy hops? Maybe,...probaby not. Increadibly thin and watery. I like pumpkin ales, but this one just didn’t do it for me.

I’m a afan of a good pumpkin ale, but after living on the Lakefront Pumpkin the last couple of weeks, this brew just doesn’t measure up. Not a bad beer, but it’s almost like comparing pumpkin pie made with real pumpkins vs canned pumpkins. he Dane entery is the canned pumpkin.
