Drinkable but disappointing, not enough head, and not enough pumpkin. I expected more pumpkin or pumpkin spice or aroma.

This was the weakest pumpkin I tasted this year. Thankfully my father-in-law ;ikes it??? He thinks I am great for giving him rthe last 4. Don’t bother.

I had the Blue Moon Pumpkin the night before this, and I think this was the loser of the comparison. Yellow, rather than a more rich color of amber, the flavor here was much more of straight up pumpkin, with a sense that it was an under-spiced pumpkin pie (the Blue Moon had a lot more to it like gingerbread or pumpkinbread). Average palate. Not bad, and actually my wife quite liked it, and I think there are more and more decent pumpkin beers out there--it’s not an inherently bad combination.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2006 First thing I think the bottled version has more flavor than tap. Very clear golden pour, thin white head. A cheap pumpkin beer that actually has some pumpkin flavoring, wish there was a little bit more it’s kinda on the weak side, but you get some pumpkin and the spices that go into a pumpkin pie, not bad just wish there was a little more flavor, still more than others I’ve had. A beer anybody could drink.

pretty good, poured a straw-golden color with a white head. A mix of cinnamon and coriandor in the aroma. Taste was yeasty at first but finished with a sweet cinnamon pumpkin bite.

Bottle. Pours a nice pilsner-looking straw colored beer with a thin white head. Strong cinnamon nose and full allspice. Hot on the tongue with some bitterness..or is that the cinnamon? A bit of vanilla. Dusty on the palate. A nice pumpkin.

almost clear yellow pour with a white head. aroma is nutmeg, chemicals, cinnamon, and dough. pumpkin flavor with a liberal dose of nutmeg and cinnamon. apple pie finish somehow.

Golden color, nearly no head. Cinnamon and squash nose. Light and weak cinnamon taste, also squash, cookie dough and apples. Lively carbonated. I really get used to those Pumpkin stuff ;-)

Another reason to make Fall my favorite season! Best beer and my new favorite!

Pours hazy orange, thin head. Apple, cinnamon, vanilla nose with small hints of cherry. Cake, ginger, really sweet flavour. Somewhat yeasty finish.
