Amber/orange color, white, some spice in the aroma, flavor is of cinnamon, and some caramel, and nutmeg. Needs more malt. lukin013 (215) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Pours a dark orange. Smells like very spicy, cinnamon-y pumpkin pie. Flavor is very interesting... cinnamon, cloves, caramel, pumpkin... spices are a bit overpowering though. Bring out the pumpkin and caramel malts a bit more and this would be fabulous. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Bottle: Amber color with an off white head. Aroma, nutmeg, cinnamon, and all those other pumpkin pie aromas. Flavor, spices, caramel malts. Really nice pumpkin ale. Zeswaft (1773) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2006
I’ve had a couple of pumpkin beers...some better than others. This is somewhere in the middle. It smells like a candle store. It tastes over the top like cinnamon and some pumpkin. You can’t tell that it’s 8% abv, which I think scores major points because it’s such a retarded concept for a beer. I mean, who would want more than one of these at a time. At least this one packs a punch. It would be a great beer to drink with a slice of apple pie at thanksgiving or in a vanilla floatie. Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2006
Off-the-chart tastes, thanks crwills. 2006 edition. Very orange, a little crowning head, and lace in the glass. All kinds of spice aroma. 8% alcohol. Significant malting but still on the spicey side with nutmeg, cardommon, cinammon, ginger. Altogether too much.

I really think a bit too much spice is used in this its hard to put your nose on pumkin when theres a whole spice rack/ definetly an intriguing beer and i wonder how well it would be aged and for how long. also if a scoop of whipped cream on top. overall its good cheap and i will drink for the holidays TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear amber brown with a tan head that leaves a skin. Now this is how a pumpkin ale should smell. Nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamon. Begins a little sticky with sour spices. Baked apple and, I guess, pumpkin. Dry potato finish with dandelion leaf. Some odd notes of old spices. Tmoney99 (14497) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Bottle. Poured clear orange color with a large creamy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy pumpkin, cinnanon and nutmeg aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer and good selection for 1700. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Draft. Very nice pumpkin aroma with slight cinnamon scent and decent head. Dark amber look, thick. Very sweet but not too sweet. Has a nice kick too it and the alcohol hides well. Well balanced and good autumn brew. HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 6, 2006
(2006 Vintage) Certainly more enjoyable than the average pumpkin beer, but the cinnamon level is a too high. The cinnamon washes out the other spices. The beer is surprisingly dry.
