Had this beer on 9/10/1999. Color is like they said it would be an orange/amber with good carbonation a ok head. Aroma is very spicy and hides the pumpkin scent if it ’s there at all. Taste light, spicy and mildly bitter. It starts with a light body that goes down crisp. Finish is a malt/pumpkin flavor overwhelmed by coriander and nutmeg. Ok to drink by there is just a bit too much spice. Buddahchild (28) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2007
light gold color. aroma of pumkins and nutmeg spice. Not much pumpkin taste, the nutmeg and spice flavors kind of overwhelm. Not bad for a lager style. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2007
sweet pumpkin pice nose. Decent mouthfeel and finish with more pumpkin pie spices. waolsen (1376) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2007

Poured a usual light orange color, weak initial head, no retention or lacing to really speak of. The aroma was pumpkin and light grass / corn notes. The flavor was mostly like a pumpkin pilsner (honey, grassy) with significant citrus notes. With warmer temperatures, the pumpkins came on stronger. Mouthfeel was a touch acidic, finishing with only gentle spicing zing in the mouth. A pretty ho hum pumpkin beer, although not bad. Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Decent holiday beer with the right amount of spices and a not too watery not too thick mouth feel. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma of spices, pumpkin, and slight cookie dough. The flavor is sweet, pumpkin, spices, and grain. Mild traces of hops, thin brew. SeizOne (32) - Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2007
the very first pumpkin beer i ever tasted was from Buffalo Bills Brewery Hayward California. That just killed the standard for any other pumpkin made. Amazing.
This had such a water down taste. It was Horrible. Id pass on this one. yuck

Ugh. I hate pumpkin beer. I think that they are all pretty much horrible, but this one just might take the cake. Hazy, burnt orange-amber body. Small white head settles to a thin film with a prominent rim. Sudsy lace does not stick around for long. The aroma is something out of a nightmare I once had. Boiled pumpkin juice is accompanied by nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander, and clove. Melted butter shows on a deep inhale, as does an unexpected and unwelcome celery smell. It takes everything I have to muster up enough courage to sip this. Double ugh. The flavor is downright offensive. Its like taking a bite out of a raw pumpkin covered in celery salt. Watery body. Horrible, vegetal aftertaste. Mommy, please make it stop! DRAIN POUR!
