cloudy orange, frothy beige head, spotty lace, lightly sweet pumpkin aroma with light spices eventually showing up as the pumpkin fades, good pumpkin flavor with a hint of spices including cinamon and nutmeg, the spice is very much in the background, upon warming some nice malty sweetness starts to come forward,
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 6/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 11/20
On draught at Max Lager’s on P-Tree. Slightly hazy and dark orange in colour. About two fingers worth of crown with an aroma rich in nutmeg, cloves, and a hint of cinnamon. Medium body, verging towards the lighter side. Extremely sweet, much like drinking sugar water enhanced with herbs. A little spicy like black pepper and a light experience of pumpkin. Other spice notes are greater in the aroma than in the palate. Too sweet for me. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2006
A light, somewhat non-descript aroma, though it suggested brown sugar at times. Cloudy, tea orange-brown. A very unusual flavor - vegetable, perhaps black pepper, perhaps cactus, faint twinges of lemon or something. Medium tangy, not very sweet. Medium light body. Pointless and craftless. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 26, 2003
Slightly hazed orange body with virtually no head. Aroma is medium sweet, nutmeg, clove cinnamon, pumpkin. Taste is medium sweet, pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, finishing with hint of earthy/floral bitterness. Light/medium body. aracauna (3606) - Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2003
This was about the same color as their Oktoberfest. Both were a medium dark stained-wood-like brown. The only difference was the the P.D.W. was lightly cloudy (cloudier than hazy, but not full-on opaque). The head was good but it could have been better. I had a full pint of this followed by a few sips off of my wife's sample glass and then the last third of her pint. The first time around I hardly noticed any pumpkin or spice at all. The last times I started picking up more spice and a little of the pumpkin. This is definitely a reserved pumpkin beer. I'd actually say it was a Dunkel Weizen first (it was nicely wheaty, with a good bit of clove as the main components of the flavor and aroma) with the pumpkin and spice just there as a subtle balanced addition to the beer. Very interesting and pretty tasty.
