Pretty good. I got this case on special for 10 dollars a case. One of the best weeks of my life. SilkTork (5725) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2007
360ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. Filtered and carbonated like a lager. The base beer lacks interest but is clean enough with a soft sweetness. Most of the interest comes from the blend of spices which work well enough giving a pleasant woody warmth. The sweet pumpkin used in the brew adds no real character and is mainly added so the brewer can claim this is made with pumpkin. Though there is some documentary evidence that early American brewers did occasionally use sweet pumpkins as a fermentation material, the beers they were making back then were dark beers in the style of porters, and didnít contain the spices that are such a feature of this brew - as such the blurb is very spurious and should be regarded as fanciful and romantic rather than accurate. bgburdman9 (861) - columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2007
I was forced into drinking this one by sliffy and nolankowal. Very spicy with pumpkin flavors. Malty with a orange color. Sweet with just an annoying spiciness to it. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle with a dubious thanks to nolankowal for "sharing" (drinking less of it): Thanks john: Amber color with an off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and some pumpkin. Smelled too much like Jackís pumpkin spice. Flavor, spicy, sweet malts, a bit bready, and some pumpkin flavors. Not good.

12 oz bottle. Filtered amber hue. Strong aromas of cinnamon and ginger and nutmeg. Slight vanilla note. Medium bodied and sweet. An almost immediate bitter middle into the finish. Lively but bitter. Nice spice flavor. A little too bitter for my liking. Nice alcohol subtlety and sticky hop finish. ganache (5848) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Bottle. Sweet and vegetal aroma. Wow, a pumpkin beer with pumpkin flavors, fancy that. Might be a first. Also cloves/coriander and either nutmeg or allspice. Orange-amber pour with a foamy beige head. Taste is moderately dry, balanced by a light bittersweetness. Pumpkin flavor at the fore, spicy body, but a good blend of components into something new. Light body seems thicker than it is because of all the smoothness. Dry and pleasantly malty aftertaste. Really one of the more laid-back and enjoyable pumpkin beers Iíve had - very drinkable. rauchbier (3880) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle, courtesy of John White. Orange-amber, moderate lasting white head and moderate condition. Initial dominant aromas of American hops is soon muted by spices and a caramel maltiness, sweet malt and spicy cinnamon in the mouth but overall quite thin, gently dry finish with a touch of cinnamon and ginger.

Orange colour. Herbal aroma. Nice smooth flavour with some pumpkin, spices, some vegies, good hoppiness. A pretty tasty brew! RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Hmmm. maybe Iím just used to the over-spiced varieties of pumpkin ales Iíve had this year, but this one was rather bland in comparison. Probably a better beer overall, but I canít really think of anything remarkable about it. Nice, smooth and pumpkiny. Iíd drink it again.
