3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Clear rusty orange. Nose of potpourri pumpkin spice and pie with a little bit of black pepper. Flavor is sharp and peppery, almost meaty like jerky or pepperoni mixed in with the pumpkin spice. Vibrant and effervescent, peppery on the tongue, but still moderately thick and frothy for the style. Very good. b3shine (8864) - 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. Strykzone (7354) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2015
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. Pailhead (6539) - 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. 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.

Draft. Pours a hazy golden orange. Aroma and taste are spices with some malt and pumpkin. jtw (1163) - farmington, Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2004
very interesting pumpkin and spice aroma. i expected it to be a tad sweeter than it was, it wasn’t quite like pumpkin pie but more like canned spiced pumpkin. a very intriguing fall beer! 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. Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2010
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.
