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

Bottle: Hazy amber, moderate spritzy off-white head, dies quickly, spotty lacing.   Nose of allspice, slight cloves, pumpkin bread.   Spicy on the tongue, not as sweet as others as the nutmeg and cinnamon are muted.   More Pumpkin and Allspice, slight orange rind as well.   Somewhat flat on the tongue, but remains quite flavorful.   Fairly clean finish, lingering spices.   Not as bright as other examples, but still big on flavor. &nbps Thanks Facto for the bottle!

Spicy and vegetative in aroma. Decent spice in flavor covers up the vegetables. Not too bad, really could do without the vegetables though.

ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 12, 2005
2005 bottle from Liquor mart drunk on 9/29/2005. A clear, filtered amber-to-light-mahogany colored beer, with a quickly dissipating off-white head, no lacing. Rather bubbly. Aroma of raw pumpkin meat, brown sugar and cinnamon. Very sweet, with some buttercream qualities, don’t get any of the hops, definitely not any lager yeast. Pretty much a sweet cream and pumpkin pie aroma. Flavor is more of the same; very sweet, brown sugar-meets-heavy cream flavor, moderately carbonated, with a raw pumpkin meatiness, that may be authentic, but seems to overpower the otherwise lighter characteristics of the mouthfeel, especially being that this is quite filtered. Looking for the lager qualities, I find none. Cinnamon/nutmeg and light allspice on the end, some plant-like, vegetal notes and more buttercream. I appreciate that it’s not overspiced, and there is a definite sweetness to it that at least gives it some body, but the mouthfeel is weak. I’m not so sure a creamy-sweet pumpkin beer works well with a lager, I’d prefer to stick to an ale. I did have this only chilled (and the first half straight from the bottle), however, so that may be a problem.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Ofortuna. Pours a clear orangish gold colored body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. Aroma is full of pumpkin pie spices, most prominantly nutmeg and allspice. Lighter notes of cinnamon and pumpkin. Flavor is pretty much all spices, and what pumpkin is there seems pretty artificial tasting. Quite heavy on the cinnamon. Mouthfeel is thinnish with very fizzy prickly carbonation. Texture is just shy of sticky. Overall, this just seemed a little shallow and lacking in complexity. All spice and not much else.

ajnepple (6625) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2013
12 oz bottle from Wilburs. Orange and clear with minimal head. Pumpkin, spices, and light hops with a smooth lager feel. Light body and easy to drink.

Patrickctenchi (6591) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours amber with a slight orange hint... Short, off-white head. Scent is strong pumpkin pie/spice. Taste is pure pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon, crust..... This is not at all my favourite sub-style, but, damn it..... It’s actually quite good.

ben4321 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 9/26/10

Aroma: The nose is dominated by the pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon
Appearance: It pours into the glass a clear caramel-orange color without much head
Flavor: The taste also has quite a bit of spice, it is much like the nose, not much else going on here
Palate: It is light-medium bodied, with a lasting spice that tingles on the tongue after the beer dissipates
Overall Impression: This one is one-dimensional, but I like that dimension. This is what you should be expecting when you buy a Pumpkin beer, and it is well executed. I’m a pumpkin beer fan in general, and though this isn’t a perfect beer, I found it to be well executed and enjoyable on a nice fall afternoon watching football.

Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Orange, off-white head. Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice - the usual pumpkin ale suspects. Flavor is sweet and spicy, again pretty much what you would expect. Not bad, but I don’t know that I’d get it again...

3.4
Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 31, 2006
Pours gold with a white dissipating head. Smells of pupkin pie and pumpkin spices. Tastes of spices but not as blended as I’d like. Nothing but the pumpkin spices really shine through on this one.
