Bottle. Pour is a ruddy brown color with a pretty nice beige head that sadly is short-lived. Aromas are pie spices and some strange and rotting vegetation. Flavor is about the same. Can’t pick out the pumpkin very well, but the rest of th pie spicing is there as is a strange mix of earthy leaf-litter and some sweetness from the malt. Strange pumpkin ale... strange. beerbomb (228) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Pours clear dark amber with small creamy head. Aroma is cardboardy malt with a little vanilla-nothing much in the way of spices. Flavor is mostly cardboardy malt with some spice presence but nothing discernable. Well below average for a spiced beer. NapalmXv3 (11) - Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Simply put.. It’s pumpkin pie as a beer.
Very easy to drink, light tasting, and has a very distinguishing taste. Pumpkin spices hit immediately and dominates the taste throughout the drink. The lingering taste afterwards tastes just like a nice Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. Makes me eager for the fall. User42649 (209) - - OCT 11, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear amber with thin off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, allspice, light malt. Taste of malt nicely blended with moderate pumpkin pie spices, appropriate hop balance. Thin body. Easy drinking, good on a cool evening outdoors. jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Pours light brown with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of burnt spice. Almost unpalatable flavor of watery burnt spice, and overcooked green vegetables. Palate is light and watery, with just a hint of the spice lingering. Wow, that’s total garbage.

In the bottle from HyVee CB. Pours brownish-amber with a thin off-white head. Horrid aroma of boiled broccoli or Brussel’s sprouts. Burnt spice aroma as well. Not pleasant. Has a watery sweet taste that leaves a burning harsh to the tongue finish. The dead animal aroma is hard to stomach. This is a fairly crappy pumpkin beer that lies in the category of pumpkin beers that make people hate the style. dlovell2 (2213) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Cinnamon and Nutmeg aroma. Amber brown color. Highly carbonated. Tastes of Cinnamon, Allspice, and Vanilla. JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured clear amber color with an off white head. Aroma of malt pumpkin and cinnamon. Tastes of malt, pumpkin and cloves. Nice mild flavor with a semi sweet finish. Decent ale. mike5203 (38) - Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Bought a case of it in PA, I was in New York and could not find it. I detected vanilla in the aroma, the color was amber with a nice full creamy head. The flavor was malty with vanilla, allspice, and a hint of pumpkin. This had a pleasent flavor and was easy to drink. kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - OCT 4, 2007
in bottle. blech! sour smell. not in a good way. Taste is better, by far. I taste cloves, some cinnamon, and then there’s a peppery aftertaste, which is very interesting. They’re not making a pumpkin pie beer - this is a pumpkin beer. beer is a murky orangey amber color, with some beige head.
