ganache (5951) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Bottle. Spicy. Pumpkin, cinnamon, citrus, brown sugar, cloves, salt. Clear ornage pour with medium carbonation and a medium-sized, lacing beige head. Taste is moderately spicy (add allspice and nutmeg to the list) pumpkin pie, a little grainy. Medium, slightly oily body. The citrus and coiander/cloves (the Wit notes, essentially) are the interesting tones here. Just a touch of citric sourness and light bitterness in the finish and beyond. thornecb (5947) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Pours light gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving no lacing. Sour pumpkin and cinnamon aromas. Dry with nutmeg, mild vegetal pumpkin and cinnamon front to back. cheap (5888) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2011
In my little hd mug. Pour is like pale lager but with a touch of haze and perhaps even a little darker. Smell is sugar pumpkin. Stronger somewhat rude personality. Does not hide alky well. Malty and sumthin going on here. Reminds me of some stronger aged high gravity beers. Almost irish in nature. Pumpkin is not pleasing in this brew. On style for a veggie spice brew. Does not have the texture of pumpkin pie, heheh Cybercat (5877) - Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Aroma is strong and malty with a good overtone of pumpkin and cinnamon, rather appetizing. It pours a clear coppery amber with not much of a head. Pumpkin flavor is strong, but does not overpower the malt; there are hints of cinnamon and hops. Texture is glass-smooth and just a little tingly. A good fall beer, but enjoyable any time of year.

36cl, no mention of ABV, American brew, with pumpkins, from De Hopduvel Gent, not complex brew, malty/spicy and slightly sweet, yet not balanced, cloudy, small head, nothing special

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 12/25/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, brown sugar, toasted bread, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, brown sugar, toasted bread, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, brown sugar, toasted bread, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and solid robustness of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish; and very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good pumpkin lager style. All around good balance and solid robustness of pumpkin/spices and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

This may be the first pumpkin lager that I’ve had. I’m not sure. It’s so much like most of the rest of the pumpkin beers. The body’s a deep gold with a touch of orange. The head starts big then fizzles out quickly. It smells of nutmeg and allspice and whatever one usually tosses into a pumpkin pie/cake/cookie/etc. Tastes that way, too. Okay, meaning as good as the others.BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 12, 2008

Bottle: Hazy copper/orange color, light white head and nice lacing. The nose is herbal with some squash, allspice and clove up front. Towards the back a little bit of molasses. The flavor has a nutty nutmeg note along with the pumpkin and spice. The finish is a bit light and thin. Missing the maltyness that would really push this towards a respectable lager. nearbeer (5452) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2010
12 oz. Clear, light amber with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is earthy cinnamon and dried leaf. Flavor is light squash, with some pie spice: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and clove. Light body is spicy dry and watery. Nice that the spice was not overdone, but a lighter touch would be even better to let the pumpkin shine through even more. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 24, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours copper with a thick, cream-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel/pale malts, a little bit of spices, and light hops. Flavor the same and average texture. Not the best pumpkin beer, but not bad. Edit: 2013 gets exactly the same review as the first time I rated this in 2011.
