Despite the smokers next to me at the bar, the aroma was classic for the style with cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor and palate were also par for the course. A decent pumpkin brew.
Sampled at great taste. Smells like I want it to but there is some earthy bitterness that doesn’t work. Spices are almost right. Just not quite for this one. Mark_Eck (1998) - - NOV 16, 2014
Draft. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aroma and taste are spices with some malt and pumpkin. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Tap @ Olde Peninsula: Hazy copper-amber & sunburst gradient with a bubbly, beige film & collar that leaves some nice lacing behind. Aroma of spicy cinnamon, creamy nutmeg, mild potpourri, & a toasty malt background. Lighter hints of ginger & vanilla towards the back-end. Taste is heavily cinnamon *& ginger, very well spiced with lighter inclusions of nutmeg, toasted bread, & crispy, crackery malts. Some slight earthy potpourri spice brings on a touch of bitterness in the finish. Thin bodied. Not bad. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate ginger, lighter nutmeg, faint pumpkin, and cinnamon. It’s a slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with mild caramel and brown sugar. The Irish has moderate-heavy ginger, light nutmeg, allspice, and a touch of cinnamon. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. b3shine (9025) - Indiana, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Draft to taster at Olde Peninsula. Looks solid; a hazy golden orange with foamy creme head. Smells of pumpkin and related spices, much like pumpkin pie. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

On draft at Olde Peninsula brewpub. A good pumpkin beer with lots of "all spice" that give it a pumpkin pie aroma and flavor. Pretty good. tsetlock (66) - Hartland Twp, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Good initial pumpkin smell, which then turns barnyard later.
Low carbination, possibly due to the growler. wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Draft at the brew pub. Pours a apple cider color. Little bit of lacing. Nice spicy aroma as it warmed up. Tastes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Very nice beer. Highly drinkable. Both my wife and I agree that the 2008 version is better then 2007.
