Worth trying and drinkable, notice the spices much more than the pumpkin. Clear sunburnt orange body with minimal head. Assorted spices on the aroma, ginger, nutmeg, pepper then watery pumpkin notes in the taste.

Davros (3054) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2011
Pours ruby/copper with a large but short-lived head. Nose shows loads of spices: heaps of ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon along with some spicy cloves. Very reminiscent of ginger bread and speculaas. No detectable pumpkin under the massive amount of spices although there is a little sweet malt and brown sugar. Same spices continue through as flavours, followed by some unpleasant chalky and grainy malt. Carbonation is too high and prickly.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2011
Pours a light reddy brown with a small off white head. Aromas of ginger, nutmeg and pumpkin. Flavours of pumpkin skin, big nutmeg, and ginger with a very dry finish. Not bad at all. Very unusual. First pumpkin beer and am liking where this is going

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle. Clear brownish amber pour with a short-lived, foamy tan head. Aroma doesnt have a strong pumpkin presence but is quite spicy with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove all standing out as well as hints of caramel, lemon and berries. The pumpkin is a little more noticeable in the flavour which is also quite spicy but less fruity than the aroma. Mouthfeel is watery but dry with prickly carbonation and a lingering spicy finish. This being the first pumpkin beer I have tried so I dont have anything to compare it to, but IMO this is a nice, interesting brew although probably not something I would go for all that often.

mkel07 (5681) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2011
341ml bottle. Pours thick and a little syrupy with a copper to deep red colour and a wispy thin head of foam that disperses quickly. Cinnamon and clove spice aromas that are quite good. My first pumpkin ale and I wasnt quite sure what to expect. Lively in the mouth with a spice and pepper flavour and a lingering dryness on the palate.

SlovakSniper (5467) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2010
Le liquide est orange fonc. La mousse est fugace. Les armes et les saveurs sont trs tarte la citrouille avec des pices (cannelle et muscade) et de la pulpe fruite. Un caramel se dgage des entrailles du liquide avec une bonne sensibilit. En bouche, le liquide a une structure moyennement faible avec une effervescence normale et une texture douce. La finale se fait sur de bonnes notes pices.
