Some pumpkin required
Got two of these while on special. Took Steve's advice and added a 29oz can of pumpkin--went from ok to excellent. Also went with a full oz @60min of northern brewer over the half oz of cascade in the recipe. Balanced much better with the added pumpkin to my taste. Second go with those changes turned out excellent--much better than expected. Knocking off a star because the pumpkin should really be part of the recipe.

The Great Charlie Brown is Great!
Turned out to be an excellent beer. I added 28oz canned pumpkin to the mini-mash for mouth-feel and subtle flavor. There's a discrepancy, the recipe shows Cascade hops and I received Northern Brewer. All is well but AIH should be aware of the contradiction.

Recommend adding Pumpkin
Good beer, but the spices aren't enough in my opinion. To get a full bodied flavor, I added 29oz of "100% Pumpkin" canned puree into the boil at 15 minutes left. PUT IT IN A BAG or it's a mess to clean up. You'll get a great pumkpin taste and smell with this mix.

Tasty Pumpkin Spiced Brown Ale
I brewed this using the WLP028 yeast. I fermented for 17 days then bottled. This is a medium-body dark brown ale (it's dark brown due to the "Chocolate" specialty grains) with a tan head. The aroma is malt up front followed by a slight chocolate and pumpkin-spice undertone. The taste is similar to the aroma, malt up front then you get some chocolate (think bitter-sweet baking chocolate) and a slight pumpkin spice on the back of the tongue. I'm not a fan of most pumpkin beers but overall this is pretty good so I'll give it 4 stars.

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.
