PorterPounder (7618) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Pleasant pumpkin pie spice aroma with some Christmas spice and cinnamon in there as well - quite nice - mostly downhill after that. Light off white head sits atop the light copper pour with some floaties speckled about. Flavor has a brief pumpkin pie spice splash, but settles to a bland vegetable like flavor. Has a bit of pepper in there as well and as it warms, tastes similar to spiked hot cider. The aftertaste is not unlike some malt liquors - slighlty fusel alcohol-like. Started with high possibilities.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2006
Bottled 10/05. Poured a clear medium caramel with a rather well-retained cap of off-white head. Nose was of baked pumpkin, nutmeg, and an unidentifiable sourness... decent. Flavor was pumpkin-based, with brown sugar, cinnamon, an odd sour and tangy metallic twang to it. Tacky on the front of the palate, watery across the middle, and tacky again at the finish... odd feel to it. OK pumpkin with a solid (not overbearing) spice complement.

Ernest (7478) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2006 Blind rating. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel), with notes of nutmeg and pumpkin. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Unpleasant sourness hurts this one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7178) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was semi sweet caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. The flavor was dryish and spicy with strong nutmeg and cinnamon and moderate caramel and nut undertones. Long cinnamon and nutmeg finish. Medium body. Solid.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2002
A unique style, and very fitting to the season. This has very distinctive taste of cinnamon and maybe nutmeg that seems to compliment the pumpkin very well. Im not a big pumpkin fan, but I could definitely drink this with ease.

TheAlum (7051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2009
12 oz bottle from the brewery (Milwaukee, Wi) from my February trip. Pours a striking amber pour, clear and well carbonated, with decent offwhite head that dissipates entirely. Aromas are a nice light bready malt body, with pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, and light brown sugar making a good showing. Quite inviting, really. Initial is light bodied, bitter with some pumpkin bite, moving to very vague cinnamon and nutmeg body. Light, bitter. Stays away from malty dominance. A little unfriendly late palate, decent aftertaste. It tries, but it doesnt quite do it for me.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 8, 2008
Clear light amber with no head. Nice smell is ginger, cloves, sweet malts. Medium body and smooth. Nice spiced up pumpkin pie flavors mirror the aroma with cloves, pale malts, ginger, nutmeg. Enjoyable, no off flavors/aromas.10157
