Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle from Pats Liquors in Porter, Indiana: It poured a clear golden amber body with a sizeable head that left lots of lace in its wake. Theres no indication if theres any pumpkin in here, and if there is, I missed it. The aroma is full of pumpkin pie spices (nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, etc.) and block any malt that might be there. The flavor is more beery, delivering some sweet caramelly malts followed by a rush of pie spices and a light herbal bitterness. Considering its a style that I really dont care for, this one wasnt too bad.

What an aroma of cloves, anisette and licorice, quite anesthetizing. Color is orange/ruby and clear. Has a small off white head. Wow, lots of pumpkin spice in this brew, more than any other Ive tried. Certainly tries to imitate the fall pumpkin feeling. May be overdone on the spices. Yes, if you are looking for something that is like pumpkin pie without the sugar, you got it. But isnt sweetness the major portion of a pumpkin pie? Barely any carbonation on the palate and what does exist is slight champagne creaminess. Finish is pumpkin spice all the way, dont know if I can take more than two of these at a time. No bitterness detected but the spice is quite in your face.

bottle. november 2011. orange with small head. really nice fall spice. not overdone, perfect amount. if all the MBC beers were this good, theyd still be in business. sadly, only this and the IPA were any good.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2011
Poured into a tulip. Color is a bright peach-orange color that is mostly transparent with a bit of light haze. Single-finger white head falls down into a bit of light lacing and a few large carbonation bubbles. Nose is some bright and strong pumpkin spice notes along with a strong nose of cinnamon and some sweet apple. Taste is Apple Jacks with some cinnamon and green apple components plus a bit of nutmeg and some sweet pumpkin pie. Light sweetness. Light to medium body with low amounts of carbonation. Pretty sweet and slightly cloying. Not terrible, but a bit too sweet and slightly gimmicky. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-14-2010

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of spices, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, clove, light pepper, and light pumpkin. Aroma is over-spiced. Poured orange/amber in color with a medium-sized, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and heavily spiced. Tastes of spices, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, and a hint of pumpkin. Light to medium body. Slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Spice, nutmeg, allspice, and clove finish is a tad dry. Way over-spiced.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Pours a mostly translucent orange/amber with a medium frothy/bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of...you got it...Pumpkin Pie spices. A little heavy on the nutmeg and vanilla. Getting some cinnamon in there, but the nutmeg is really winning out. Maybe also some brown sugar, caramel and nuts. The flavor, pretty much a match of the aroma. A decent Pumpkin Ale with a solid label.

Nate (4263) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle from Uncle Sudsy’s. Nice pumpkin pie spices, sweet with cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and brown sugar. Very little hops. Medium dark amber-brown clear, with thin head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with brown sugar and caramel, followed with tons of pumpkin pie spices. Light alcohol and estery flavors, with mild nutty bitter finish and calm spice-bitter after. Nice flavor to this one.

jsquire (4260) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Amber colored beer with a short lived off white head that left moderate lacing on the glass. Nose of powdered sugar sweetness and pumpkin pie spices. After I had a few sips of this I realized what I was tasting. This is like the frosting on carrot cake. Really sweet cream cheese, with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove spices thrown in. Almost a dry, dusty spice flavor, and the sweetness of that frosting just gets me. Interesting pumpkin beer.

bottle - Pours hazy orange with a small white head. It smells like pumpkin pie with lots of pumpkin and spice, especially cinnamon. The flavor is sweet, spicy pumpkin and some bitterness in the finish that unfortunately tastes a little off. I think a more robust malt profile would have helped this one, but its alright.
