Yummy beer
Really enjoyed this beer. Nice balance of spices give it a great flavor.

Great beer
Brewed this on the 16th of October fermented for about 12 days. When I went to bottle it I was extremely pleased with the taste. Smells great feels like a brown ale but finishes with the pumpkin and spice flavors. Passed it around a party last weekend and people were loving it and were pleasantly surprised when they found out it was a home brew. I recommend this. Keep in mind it's a pumpkin Brown ale.

Kinda meh, no real pumpkin flavor
Brewed this beer about three weeks ago. Hit my FG right on target, and racked it to my new keg. Carbed the beer up and had a taste. First impression: Meh. It has some mouthfeel and a bit of sweetness, but no pumpkin flavor. Perhaps my spices were old, or maybe they should have been added to secondary. Either way, I can't recommend this beer and probably won't order it again.

Great fall brew
Used harvested Safale 04 and added 2 cans of pumpkin and 2 pounds of 6-row for a mini mash with this one. Mashed all that for an hour before the boil. Went 2 weeks primary and 1 week secondary. FG was 1.011. Great fall brew with a nice spice smell and taste, but not overpowering. A real good fall brew that I'll repeat next year. Great value too!

Nice spice!
Purchased this kit on sale. Added one can of Trader Joe's organic pumpkin to the boil as suggested in other reviews. That made straining the wort from the boil pot a chore - clogged the strainer quickly. Reached FG after 11 days primary and 10 days secondary. Just tapped the keg a few days ago. The spice level is not overpowering but is noticeable, which suits me fine. Not sure the pumpkin addition is noticeable or worthwhile. Others have added more spices. May have to try that next time I brew this kit, which I will.

Great pumpkin beer with additions
I added 3lbs of baking pumpkins. Bought 2 pumpkins and cut them up and baked at 350F for 30 mins. Added to mash with grain. Adjusted water amount for mash. Also added extra pumpkin spice to boil. Then added a bunch to secondary. Turned out great. A little darker then I would've liked but tastes great. Will make again next year.

I love this beer
I just bottled this kit this weekend, one week in the primary, one week in the secondary, final abv of 4.7%. Tasted the beer while bottling, no aging, no carbonation and oh wow that's some good stuff I'm getting another kit next week.

Hope it turns out good..., still bubbling!!!
Bought this as my first "kit" beer, as I usually work from recipes. It was a good price, so I thought I'd try it. Brewed on 9/11/2014. Made yeast starter with the White Labs 028 Edingburg yeast. Had explosive fermentation starting about 9 hrs after pitching (foam in blow-off hose in a 6.5 gal fermenter!). Racked to secondary fermenter 9 days later, and it was still bubbling. It is now October 4th and still slowly bubbling in secondary fermenter. It is VERY dark brew, and I did taste it when racking, it was good and spicy. Plan to keg in about a week. Can't give a 5 star, since it is not completed yet....

Add Some Pumpkin for an Amazing Beer
The first time I brewed this ale, I didn't add pumpkin. The last 3 years, I've added 3 15 oz cans of Trader Joes pumpkin on two occasions, and Libby or some other store brand on the third brew. The TJs pumpkin rounds out the beer and makes it an amazing brew. Another option would be to bake some pie pumpkins and add them. Regardless, avoid the Libby pumpkin because it adds very little pumpkin flavour. Also, someone suggested adding the pumpkin during the last 15 mins. of the boil, but I've also added it at the same time as my other fermentables with amazing results. Finally, I like a pumpkin ale with less "pie" flavour and more subtle spice flavour that allows the pumpkin to shine. This said, I'd only add 1/2 half the spice mix that's included with this kit; add it all if you like "pumpkin pie spiced" pumpkin ale. All-in-all, this is an amazing kit. I'm ordering two today and this will be my 4th season brewing this ale. Great job AIH!

Great pumpkin beer
First time I brewed a 5 gallon batch of beer and this was the perfect choice. Kegged my batch and had a tasting party, beer only lasted 3 hours and the guests loved it. Can't wait for next fall to do it again.
