Draft sample, Bavarian Lodge. Nose is full of pumpkin pie spice: nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, a little ginger. Color in the little glass is light brown. Taste has those usual nutmeg, cinnamon and other spices, and leaves you to guess whether there’s actual pumpkin in here. But I caught something else: a distinct creamy or fatty impression that immediately made me think of pumpkin pie crust, whipped cream or even a pumpkin mousse. Don’t want call it "buttery" because that’s not diacetyl. A nice surprise for this kind of brew.
Lightly hazed dark golden color with a moderate sized ecru colored head. Cinnamon dominates the spicy scents. Ginger and mace in the background. Doughy sweetness and mild spices in the front. Spices build to the finish, but are rather dry. Flavors just not fulfilling for a light pumpkin brew. 7/11

12oz can from Crossroads. Pours a hazy amber color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, floral hops, and pumpkin pie spices. Taste of lemon citrus, light spices, and watery graininess. Pretty boring Finhead (1800) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2015
A hazy, orange-brown pour with a small, white head. The aroma has banana, pumpkin, and some bubble gum. It has a medium body with average carbonation and smooth texture. The taste is sweet with a quick finish.

Aroma is spices, cinnamon and malts. The flavor is cinnamon, malts, spices and a slightly sour/tangy finish. BVery (11241) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy orange pour with a clingy white head. Nice cinnamon and nutmeg aroma. Similar flavor but more reserved. Decent. kaser (6360) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Slight fruit and pumpkin aroma. Taste is light and pumpkin sweetness. Poured from 12pz can at home. Enjoyable pumpkin but have had better KansaiBeerLvrs (5305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 31, 2014
Wild Onion Brewing’s Pumpkin Ale (5.4%) is the last of the pumpkin beers I picked up in Chicago. It pours deep copper gold with a decent head. A slightly spicy cinnamon with that apple pie aroma I got from many mid-West pumpkin ales. Medium to light bodied with a scratchy carbonation. The taste gives me cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and a sweet fruitiness. I think the sweetness and spicing is a bit overdone and needs a gentler touch for my tastes.

Pours a burnt orange, semi cloudy with light cream head. Pumpkin and sweetness upfront with spice and hop bitters on the back. This is a good beer for people who want something halfway between a sweet rich imperial pumpkin ale and an less aggressive ale with just a hint of pumpkin and spice.
