Light distant aroma of pumpkin flesh and Frangelico. Pour of just slightly hazed glowing pie skin orange. Soapy white rim. Flavor a chewy mask of candy corn and wisping pie spice residue, authentic. Subtle and pie like. A nice gentle balance of the pumpkin, malt and spices. Not overbearing and yet hoppily refracted. Not horrible. hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Lightly soapy aroma with some subtle pine and nutmeg. Light yellow in color with a thin, white head. Pine hop flavor with a subtle nutmeg finish. Nice and hop forward with a touch of charcoal in the finish. Light body with a watery texture and dry finish. brpelton (1) - climax, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2006 does not count
I was wanting to try something new, it’s a good beer, but I didn’t really notice any pumpkin taste or aroma. Still, not bad, just another ale. stoutchap (423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Thoughtthis was prett drinkable, but not very pumpkin. No noticeable pumpkin aroma. A light trace on the tongue, almost an afterthought. Some decent malts and very light hops. Ultimately not a show stealer, but very solid, esp. for a vegetable brew. Also - they have a much cooler lable now!

Draft at Boston’s Bistro, Dayton. I love the name and label. Bright orange with a poofy top. The aroma said "attack of the gourd!" Spicy yet light-bodied in the aroma with an almost lemony finish that didn’t quite fit. Thin, too, for a fall beer.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 Bottle. Nice pumpkin color, pleasant vegetable-like aroma but not necessarily pumpkin in nature. Smells spicy too. Very drinkable, mild and spiced, sort of a beer version of apple cider. No beer bitterness whatsoever, some folks won’t like that at all but it’s my bag. Maybe drank it a touch too cold.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2006 Poured orangy gold amber ale, looked pretty in the glass, hardly any head, had to pour hard to make a head on top, smells of pumpkin (and hints of that fresh pumpkin smell when cleaning out the insides before carving), squash, some cooked vegetables, and a little spices, taste of pumpkin was subdued, some bite on the tongue from hops and a dry finish, this beer looked and had the fragrance of a pumpkin ale, the spices were muted, I would buy this again. mstockton (225) - Frankfurt, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2006
Golden color with a light, white head. Not too sweet, but a little bit with some bitter flavors. A decent beer that drinks pretty easily...not huge on the pumpkin flavor though. wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2006
dark gold with a white head that sticks around. aroma light pumpkin spice. flavor light malt pumpkin and pumpkin spice with a hint of hops. light body. finish fairly bitter pumpkin spice. this beer is nowhere near as good as i remember it being last year. tcruicks (282) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Its a yellow color with a hint of orange and a small white head. This beer is very drinkable, almost too much so. It smells very much like pumpkin, and tastes very spicey with maybe carrots and cinammon, some malt, some light fruit.
