Gez (44) - Ormond Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Pours a dark hazy orange with a medium light tan head.Has a spicy aroma of clove, cinnamon, and alcohol with a hint of pumpkin. Light and spicy flavor, caramel and clove. Has a bubbly feel to it. Very nice beer.

12oz bottle. Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma is yeast, spice, and fake pumpkin. Taste is the same, but even more unpleasant. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Absolutely awful.

I truly enjoyed this beer. The spice palate is a great mixture to create one of the best tasting pumpkin beers Ive ever had. It is low in alcohol content, so i would recommend this for an easygoing night.

Bottle. To America & England: and may they never have any division but the Atlantic between them.

jaghana (6160) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 10, 2017
Bottle 50cl, a copper beer with low head. Nose is intense on sugar, ginger notes and spices like cinnamon. Aroma is on spices again ginger and cinnamon, light pepper, body is very low and watery, ok for the fun.

DenverLogan (1230) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 31, 2016
From a bottle into a North Coast chalice. Pours golden with small head. Aroma of grains, malt, sour grapes, melon rind. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grains, pale malt, minerals, pumpkin spice, melon juice. Overall flavorful, refreshing, decent.

Ferris (16066) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle - Sweet cooking spices like pepper and nutmeg. Clear gold with a small white head. Light pumpkin and nutmeg.

Docavey (88) - Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Have had this many times in the fall season, from the can. Light in the mouth but with a nice pumpkin spice flavor. 4.5% alcohol so easy to drink and the flavor does not get overwhelming. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love this beer. Has just the right amount of everything. Good for just one with a meal, or without, to relax at the end of a hard days work. Also good for multiples with friends or at the pub. I LOVE THIS BEER!

Cajun (539) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - OCT 18, 2016
Can - Pours a clear dark gold to amber, white head that thins quickly. Aroma of pumpkin and fruit juice. Flavors of some pumpkin, fruit, spices, very mild hops, and raspberry kool-aid. Not impressed with this particular can. Ran flat.

Andrew196 (1941) - Katy, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Bottle to glass - pours light gold, just a flash of head. Aroma is standard fall potpourri, nothing adventurous. Taste is squash and pumpkin with an unwelcome adjunct tinge. Not very good.
