you see the label,you drink it. there’s a pretty good beer that has a good pumpkin flavor decently balanced with appropriate spices, good carbonation and mouthfeel. better than one might expect. satisfying bottle of beer. they marry the flavors well. one beer wonder.

On tap at the brewery. Probably the best pumpkin ale I’ve had. Poured copper-colored with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of spices including nutmeg and cinnamon, maybe the faintest hint of cloves? Spicy taste full of pumpkin flavor, very enjoyable. Perfect for those autumn days. Lowe1983 (1605) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2007
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of pumpkin, nutmeg, sweet malts, yeast, and some slight floral hops. Flavor starts off with the nutmeg and pumpkin then gives way to the sweet malts, yeast, and floral hops. Doesn’t have too much of an aftertaste but it’s mostly the nutmeg and pumpkin. A decent brew even though I’m not really a big fan of pumpkin ales. natejgood (516) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - APR 13, 2007
This is my favorit pumpkin ale. Many pumpkin ales are too sweet or taste too strongly of pumkin spice. This one is nicely balanced. It tastes like a beer (a relatively good beer), but you can tell that there is a bit of pumpkin pie, some cloves, and maybe even some nutmeg in there. When you smell it there is just a hint of pumpkin spice. The taste is also relatively crisp, so you don’t get a lot of aftertaste. While a pumpkin beer isn’t something you want to drink every day, this one sure does hit the spot in the autumn months. My rating may be higher than it deserves for that reason alone. jonwayne4883 (401) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2007
a better than average autumn seasonal. pumpkin flavor is faint, also detected typical spices, cinnamon, some ginger...there are both better and much worse pumpkin beer attempts out there, try it out.

Bottle. Transparent orange pour with a white head. Like most pumpkin brews there’s an overwhelming amount of clove and cinnamon with some pumpkin as well and not a whole lot else. The flavors are similar with the spices standing out with nothing under it to support it. Spicy mouthfeel...undercarbonated with a dry finish. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2007
Bottled. A dark copper coloured beer with a nice enough off-white coloured head. The aroma is spicy with clear notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. A little phenolic also. The taste is also spicy and warming. A bit of a chili kick amidst the cinnamon. Tasty and drinkable. Drink4Satan (677) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2007
Great stuff. All-spice, berry, clove, cinnimon, and of course pumpkin. They really pulled off the fall style on this one. Looks appatizing with a good sized white head atop a clear burgundy body. Nice medium bodied beer. You really have to like spicy fall beers to enjoy this one. caper (2) - USA - MAR 1, 2007 does not count
this is one of my favorite beers. truly.
how can you beat the aroma, the tones, the flavor, the aftertaste, the appearance.
I leave in the northeast, so i’m steeped in autumnal things, pumpkins, leaves, damp fall weather... maybe that’s what makes this so good, it is part of the season.
Great beer, especially by itself, after dinner, for a few tips. DerWeg (1689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2007
Pie-spice and baked pumpkin aroma very much like a pie. Medium strength flavor and body, very clean and drinkable. Nice color. Enjoy it warmed up with fresh whipped cream.
