Oakes (16949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2008
Hazy orangey-amber colour. Bright, assertive pumpkin nose with lots of spice (nutmeg). Body is light...theres just enough malts to keep this going. Big nutmeg splash. Plus, it has lager cleanliness. Not the coolest pumpkin beer Ive ever had, but probably the most technically sound.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 3, 2011
A: The beer pours a slightly cloudy burnt orange color with a short lived off-white head. S: Lots of spices to it, especially clove and nutmeg. Theres a bit of cinnamon in there, too. The aroma is a bit tart, sort of like my homebrew pumpkin beer that got infected. A light fruitiness, likely yeast esters. T: Fruity and sweet up front, which isnt something that you normally associate with pumpkin beers. An intense spiciness follows, mostly cinnamon with a bit of nutmeg and clove. M: Light to medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation. O: Too much of the lager comes through without enough of the pumpkin. The spices are there, but its not the greatest balance or combination.

Benzai (15092) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle shared @ ChrisO after GBBF Day 2. Clear orange golden color, small off-white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, loads of pumpkin and cinnamon, (Dutch) "peperkoek" lichtjes, maar vooral die fucking cinnamon irriteert mateloos. Gadverdamme zeg! Bleh!

bhensonb (14881) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Spicey aroma. Pie spice. Amber color with essentially no head. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is cinnamon and clove and pumpkin? Its really good. Best pumpkin ale I think Ive had. The finish is sort of astringent, maybe a hint of sweet, but definitely spices. Thats how to turn squash into something drinkable. Spice it!
