Slightly hazy copper tinted body with an orange tint and a very thin off-white head. Aroma of pungent spice and squash note with allspice and cloves coming through, a touch of malt and some nice brown sugars. Medium to Full-bodied; Nice full spice flavour with a good sweetness, some light pit fruits, a touch of malt and a little earthiness. Aftertaste shows good spice tastes, a strong squash and pumpkin full-bodied taste and a good sweetness. Overall, surprisingly good with a nice complex flavour that shows very well for the season. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 04-September-2011 for US$1.35 sampled at home in Washington on 12-September-2011. dmac (6315) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2012
12 oz bottle from Spirits Rt 166. Poured an orange/rust colored body with a smaller foamy of white head. Aroma is more heavy on the spices, all-spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, metallic notes, wet bread and some odd pumpkin as well. the body is very thick and full and not a quick sipper on how much it fillsup your mouth and throat. Flavor actually seems to be astep down from the aroma, wet spices dominate, all-spice, nutmeg, hint of chocolate for some reason, followed by bread, cinnamon and pumpkin. Not a top 3 pumpkin beer but would suffice in a pinch. kaser (6314) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Draft at Vaughn's. spicy and pumpkin aroma. Dark orange pour. Crisp and flavorful pumpkin beer. Tasty for the style. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Pours a hazy orange color with a head that goes away as quickly as the beer is poured. Pleasant cinnamon and pumpkin spice aroma. The flavor is interesting but I like it. It is a crisp mix of spices with a touch of grainy malt, a dab of bitterness, than a lingering sweet pumpkin spice. Thinner body than most of these Pumpkin beers, but it’s a lager. It drinks like a lager and finishes crisp like a lager. Interesting. Is there ginger in here? JPDIPSO (6236) - Wauwatosa, USA - SEP 9, 2002
Light amber with a light cream colored, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg with a faint pale malt undertone. Malt hits you first followed by light spice and then back to malt maltiness. Its been some time since I had had this one, and this one is better than I remember. Pumpkin really doen’t come out until it warms up. Finishes slightly spicy and a touch of hops bitterness. A very good pumpkin beer.

Bottle. Orange pour with a short, fizzy tan head. Strong clove, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in the aroma along with subtle pumpkin pie notes. Taste is mellowed spices with pumpkin pie, light brown sugar, faint caramel and grass/straw notes. Body is light-medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more pumpkin pie notes, spices, light caramel and brown sugar. thedm (6216) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were and left behind a typically carbonated yellow-orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was spicy and pumpkin. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild ofness in the aftertaste I did not care for. The mild flavor contained notes of pumpkin. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again. dwyerpg (6216) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 10, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2007 Re-rate. Smells like pumpkin pie. Great. Taste is pretty good. One of the thicker and more beer-like pumpkin beers I’ve had. Pretty nice I think. JK (6192) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 This beer is ok. Some pumpkin in the aroma. Copper color. Flavor of sweet citrus and some spice. Little pumplin. Very nice aftertaste with mild spices and fruit. Skyview (6076) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2007
I remember watching the brewmaster spent hours opening all those cans of Libby’s pumpkin pie filling for this beer back in the mid 1990s. Sure enough, today’s Pumpkin lager is just as good as it was back then. Pours a slighly hazy light amber with a nice white head. Aroma is cinnamon, citrus, tasted malt and of course pumpkin. (all it needs now is whipped cream). Tastes more of lightly roasted barley malt and some cinnamon/spices which is present in the finish. A nice light lager beer with a touch of Thanksgiving dessert.
