Appearance - a lusty pour into a Maudite glass yields a beer that has a slight hazy, translucent orange glow. Thin cap but manages to lace nonetheless.

Aroma - light pumpkin, strong cinnamon, with a smattering of some other good fall spice aromas that are hard to identify.

Taste - rich malty flavor with layers of pumpkin pie spices all throughout. Very toasty and full-flavored with just enough hops to accentuate the malts and spices, culminating with a nice pie crust finish. The most complete pumpkin ale so far.

Mouthfeel - medium body, sufficient carbonation to give it a crisp autumn feel.

Drinkability - a great pumpkin ale, deserving of its following. I feel lucky to have scored the last sixer from Mitch at my local Shop Kwik. Thanks, Mitch!

This is my favorite pumpkin brew to date. I look forward to the release party every year. Most pumpkin brews are too over the top in spice flavors, but this one is perfect. So perfect that you can drink one after another and love it... All the other pumpkins brews you can enjoy about 1 and choke down any after that.

On draught amazing, bottle (2007) dang good.

the best I've had thus far was 2007's "Ichabod Tripel" only available at the autumnfest party. Oh man I wish I had a keg of that.

New Holland Ichabod Ale brewed by New Holland Brewing Company. This pumpkin ale pours out a deep golden amber color with a nice off white head. Now Ichabod Ale , has an ABV of 4.50% There is a decent amount of lacing to this pumpkin ale, it sticks nice to the glass. Ichabod Ale smell is rich with spices and pumpkin. The smell puts you in the mind set of pumpkin pie, not saying that is a thing. Between the color and smell this brew is really inviting. Now for the taste, it is bold with spices, you pick up on cinnamon and nutmeg, then pumpkin. You also pick up on a decent amount of grains and malts. There is a lot going on in this pumpkin ale. This pumpkin ale has a bit more spices than most on the market, but it gives this brew a nice kick, that is a good thing. There really is nothing overpowering about New Holland Ichabod Ale, it a has a real nice balance to. I can't get over how smooth this ale goes down. This a fine drinking pumpkin brew, really puts you that pumpkin pie state. This is one pumpkin brew I can really enjoy. The mouth feel of New Holland Ichabod Ale is Spicy , Bold, Clean , Smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I'm giving New Holland Ichabod Ale a 4.75 out of 5. I would definitely buy this brew again. New Holland Brewing Company, did a real nice job with this brew.

Pours light amber with a nice, frothy white head. I suspect that the color comes almost exclusively from pumpkin.

Very light spice notes in the nose, a bit of cooked pumpkin in there as well. Reminiscent of the smells you get walking by a bakery in the height of the fall season.

Slightly sweet flavor with a moderated spice presence. Ends with a surprisingly assertive bitterness.

A bit thin bodied, but quite drinkable, one of my favorite pumpkin ales.
