The Ex-husband left me two bottles of his favorite pumpkin beer as a gift a few weeks ago. Roy thinks it tastes like metal and could be poisoned but I know I'm still worth more alive than dead, so this heavily spiced pumpkin ale just tastes a bit like non-poisonous metal.

Creamy, lightly sweet, malty beer with definite-but-not-overboard pie spice presence. Very lightly fruity, or is that the pumpkin? An easy drinking option, and cheap.

Gingerbread smell. Thin waterish body and cinnamon taste.
Bottle at Home
Pumpkin cookie smell, cereal and spice. Good balance between a light sweetness, spiced body, a hop bite at the end.

Strong pumpkin flavor - almost eating a slice of pumpkin pie.

Emphasis on pumpkin spice, less on the malt.
Bottle at Home
Light and drinkable, maybe a little heavy on the spices (ginger snap?), but with a faintly sweet, nutty character, probably from pumpkin seeds. Not the best pumpkin ale I've ever had, but it sure tasted like autumn.
Pumpkin cookie smell. Not a very strong pumpkin taste which is good but the malt taste stops real short and I'm left with a slight baking powder/bitter sort of aftertaste.
