Default pumpkin ale trade

I brewed a batch of Yuri's Thunderstruck pumpkin ale, I hit all the mash temps and gravity was pretty much spot on. Fermented with S-04 at 65 F for 3 weeks, and it's been in the keg for 3 weeks.
It seemed to turn out pretty good, but definitely not my favorite. I'd love to try a bottle of someone else's pumpkin ale, or even spice ale. Of course I'd send you a bottle or two of my pumpkin ale for tasting, I'd love to get some feedback on mine. Thanks!

I just tasted yours. It tastes a lot like Harvest Moon. Good flavor, but I can't taste the Pumpkin. Good carbonation too. You should get mine this week. It isn't quite as carbonated, but has a distinct Pumpkin flavor.

I mashed with the pumpkin as per Yuri's recipe, the only thing that I didn't follow was the amount of spice added, I used only 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice at flameout ( for 10 gallons).
I smell the pumpkin more than taste it, I can taste the spice but probably only because I know I put in there...it's barely perceptible.
Thanks for the feedback!

Default review of Rek's pumkpin

I received Rek's pumpkin beer in a swap. On opening, there was good carbonation and a nice pumpkin smell. The color was pleasing. In general, it was a clean & tasty ale. I was looking for more spices, though that might be a personal preference.
Thanks for sharing!
Wendy
