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 it’s alright. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2010
(draft @ D’s Six Pax & Dogz - Pittsburgh, PA) Clear orange pour with a thin white head. Very nice and apparent pumpkin and spice notes in the aroma. Very minimal hops. Pumpkin pie and lots of spice all throughout with a rather malty and bready middle. Very little bitterness with a nice and sweet spice and pumpkin flavor at the finish. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Amber with a thin white head. Minor lacing and a touch of haze with this Halloween offering. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Taste of heavy clove, nutmeg and a spicy finish that has some burnt malt mixed in. Dry finish on this one trick pony (clove) that just a bit too one dimensional. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Bottle. Pretty copper color with a small white head. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, vanilla, and sweet caramel. Flavor was right in keeping with the aroma: spicy pumpkin pie, sweet caramel malt, and vanilla. This is my first pumpkin ale and it was everything I expected a spiced pumpkin ale would taste like. Very nice. LinusStick (3457) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2007
The aroma of this beer is the best of any of the pumpkins hands down. Strong alcohol and spices that would be the equivelant of snorting a line of pumpkin pie mix. Pour was a clear medium brown with a 1 finger white head. Taste was not too strong. Heavy carbonation drowned out any taste, but the heavy pumpkin aroma floats up through the nostrils. Nice.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 Disclaimer: I LOVE pumpkin so I may be a little bias. This beer tastes like a liquid pumpkin pie with alcohol. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 23, 2007
12oz bottle, courtesy of pjweaver (my bro). Thanks, Phil! Pours a clear, bold orange-amber color; fluffy white head with good retention and lacing. Very generous, soft spicing in the aroma; mostly nutmeg with some cinnamon and toasty vanilla. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: pleasant amber ale underneath everything (clear; light carbonation), surrounded by warming nutmeg and cinnamon; none of the typical spice harshness, just toasty and warm spicing. Medium, candy sugar and nutmeg in the finish; a bit dry. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 25, 2003
This is the "Screamin' Pumpkin Spiced Ale," which I assume is the same beer. This clear orange beer poured with an off-white creamy head and spicy nutmeg aroma. Rather full-flavored, with nutmeg and cinnamon joining forces. A wee bit of bready malts peek through the spicy morass. Decent example of a style that is otherwise wearing thin on me at this point.

On tap at Cole’s.
Spicy nose, cinnamon, allspice, amber/orange, small custard head. Taste has a spicy start, again, allspice, nutmeg, malt is there too. Medium bodied, sweet, spicy and tasty. Very good. unclemike (3121) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 1, 2009
