Orange clear beer with disapating white head. Good pumpkin taste. More like cinnamon and pumkin pie. Not overwhelming, but still, the flavor is there. This beer fits the Fall well. Pumpkin beers seem to be showing up everywhere. Its easy enough to market, with Ichabod and jackolaterns. Most fall flat on flavor though, but this one is decent.

Disappointing. The pumpkin spices are barely noticeable at all, and if I didn’t know to look for them I wouldn’t know this was a pumpkin beer. On the light side overall, it is a light bodied ale with no remarkable characteristics. There are many more flavorful pumpkin beers, and this beer has almost no aroma.

12 oz bottle sample. Pours to a slightly hazy, burnt orange color, with a white head that fades, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is very inviting with aromas of sweet malt, and pumpkin pie spices such as cinnamon, clove, and nutneg. The palate is firm with good pale and sweet malt, paried with some "squashy" flavor of pumpkin meat. This beer finishes with more good malt and pumpkin flavor, then ends with very pleasing, sweet and spicy flavors of brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg that lingers. Excellent pumpkin ale, with a nice balance of real pumpkin flavor and pumpkin pie spice aromas and flavors. Fantastic fall seasonal, but a beer to enjoy year round, especially with a desert of vanilla ice cream and a big slab of pumpkin pie. jonwayne4883 (401) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2006
one of the better pumpkin ales i have tried. just the right combination of pumpkin and spices to capture the fall flavor Hollywoodt (241) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2006
Bottle. Poured a hazy orange. Aroma was of pumpkin and spice. Flavor was that and some nutmeg. This one was OK.

On Tap @ Brew Kettle 10/13/05: Medium amber w/ a lasting white head. Aroma is spicy, but subdued. Nutmeg is dominant w/ some light cinnamon, toasty malt, and light pumpkin aromas. Well balanced w/ a lot of spice, but just to bitter. A bit of herbal hop flavor in the dry finish. Aftertaste is a bit dry and tannic. Medium body, lower carb., a bit astringent. Not my favorite style of beer for sure. Too much tannin from spices to be enjoyable and I couldn’t drink much more than one. shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Bottle. Clove, nutmed and cinnamon aromas. Orange-yellow color with small head. Flavor primarily clove and nutmeg but also with lighter cinnamon and pumpkin notes as well. Nicely blended beer - gives you what it says. Panzuriel (2429) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Pours a hazy orange liquid witha white head. nose is of pumpkin and a little spice. Mellow and smooth mouthfeel. Taste is hints of pumpkin and spice. finishes with a little taste of pumpkin creaminess.Not too spice flavored or sweet. Very good pumpkin flavor. whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Clear golden straw body with a fading, sudsy white head. Festive aroma of nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, pumpkin, and buttery, nutty malt. Nicely spiced flavor includes an unexpected citrus aspect suggesting pineapple plus a lightly starchy pumpkin impression. Medium pumpkin pie sweetness with low bitterness and low acidity. A decent and enjoyable authentic pumpkin beer. Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2005
eh. I’ve had better pumpkin brews. It was okay. Did have a faint taste and smell of spice, but pumpkin presence was weak, little overall taste.
