I like the idea of pumpkin beer and look forward to getting my hands on it when the season comes around. This was a fairly decent sample. Nice dark orange color and low head. Dull but broad pumpkin flavor that blends well with the malt. Cinnamon end. Full body. Got a slightly cardboardy aftertaste, but otherwise quite good.

Draft. Not my favorite style, but this is quite good. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, carmel and honey. Taste is the same. Very malty and easy drinking YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Nice orange brown-amber color, light head. Cinnamon pumpkin cookie dough nose. Grain - rye and pumpkin taste. Light and fast diminishing. obxdude10 (2367) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2002
Just like eating a slice of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, outstanding pumpkin flavors & not too overpowering either, decent lacy head, dark golden in color, great seasonal brew

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2006 Draught: This one pours a crystal clear, slightly orangish, dark golden color. There was a bit of an off-white head on it, but it left quite a bit of lacing. The aroma was basically pumpkin pie spices (ginger, clove, cinnamon), with not much malt coming through at all. Yet, they weren’t overpowering as some others in this style tend to be. The taste was fairly similar. The spices weren’t overdone, but the beer behind them was a little light. More malts were needed to provide a better balance. Still, it wasn’t bad at all. A good pumpkin beer.

Clear orange, creamy white head. Nose held notes of warmed pumpkin pie and spicy cinnamon. Good spiced flavor throughout with just a touch of hop bitterness late. Light to medium bodied, light carbonation, spiced bitter finish. It’s decent, but not a standout... phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2009
BEcause of the plethora of pumpkin beers I’ve had this fall, I’m going to stick my nose up at this one. Everything about this beer passed the pumpkin ale test, but it failed to amaze me. My wife digs the pumpkin beer so we both has this a few times on our visits to New York. Cloudy reddish amber colour. Meidum whitehead. Some initial clove, pumpkin and allspice on the nose . Taste was soft with the spices, not as much as i expected and was hoping for. Decent fruit and breadiness on the palate. But overall, just another passable pumpking brew.
