had at the Cloverleaf in Caldwell NJ. nice looking amber brew, a tiny bit of head. nose was spicy, some slight citrus present. taste was a little lacking in pumpkin, but otherwise a nice ale. good mouthfeel, velvety. overall, one of the better pumpkin beers I have consumed. Wish I could have quaffed more...

I poured this one into a pint glass, it has a clear copper color body with a small fizzy head that lays down quiet quickly. The smell has a spicey hoppy smell to it. The taste has a spicy hop flavor to it with some pumpkin spices coming through on the middle of the tongue. I get a slight pumpkin flavor but more malt on the back of the tonuge. The mouth feel is good smooth, a little more heavier than other pumpkins but good. Overall this is good but needs less spice and hops and more pumpkin.

Not my favorite pumpkin by a long shot, but this is growing on me a bit as I drink through the sixer. Pours a dark amber with a head that sticks around as a thin cap. The smell and taste is quite gingery- and lacks a lot of the other pumpkin pie spices, and is also quite a bit thinner than I'd like. There is a chalkiness to the brew as well, as though raw spices were just dumped in. Completely lacks the silkiness of the pumpkin- either it wasn't used or not enough was, or perhaps the raw spices just overwhelm it. The spices leave a bit of a bitter taste in the mouth, but the ginger note is pretty tasty nevertheless. Needs more balance, or at least more integration.

Cisco's pumpkin ale is an interesting version of the style, relying more on hop and herbal flavors to complement the malt and pumpkin bill. While intriguing, I found the flavors somewhat off-putting, while the weak mouthfeel does little to make me want to sip more of this. In general, a pumpkin beer I'll avoid in the future.

Pours a nice, 2cm head of off-white foam composed of small bubbles. Recedes to a thick ring around the glass with some whispy foam lingering atop the body of the beer. Lacing is moderate, with a few choice swatches along the glass' edges. Body is a transparent copper color with medium-intensity carbonation, streaming up from the bottom center of the glass.

Aroma is moderately hoppy with an herbal tinge, vegetal, a bit compost-like, along with a biscuity, bready aroma that's heavier in the background. An interesting aroma, definitely different from the sweeter, pie-spiced, but perhaps too vegetable and herbal like, and not bready or pie spice enough.

Taste is overall kind of like a pumpkin-y, herbal-hoppy, slightly watered-down caramel malt soup. There's a distinct lack of pie spices here, instead herbal hops are the dominant spicing candidate. Tasting opens with toffee-like malt sweetness with a bit of bitterness and a slight Mid-palate is herbal, modestly bitter, and slightly sweet. Back of palate is more bitter with continued herbal undertones. Aftertaste is somewhat bitter, a bit grainy and sweet, with small hints of herbal flavors.

Beer is medium to medium-light bodied with medium to medium-low level carbonation. The resulting mouthfeel is a fairly smooth, somewhat creamy and foamy beer, but it is also disappointingly watery as the glass wears on. Finish is semi-dry.

Malty aroma has a yeasty overtone and a hint of spice. Pours a clear, dark, bubbly amber with a thick pale wheat head. Malty flavor has a hint of pumpkin and more than a hint of hoppy bitterness. Smooth texture has about average body and not a whole lot of fizz. If not the best pumpkin ale, worthy of at least a try.
