3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-11-09. Crisp dark orange body, large off white head. 3++ Pleasantly spicey aroma, lots of nutmeg I think, sweet malt core. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Pleasantly sweet malty core, pleasant spice. Very nice stuff, full flavoured yet fairly well balanced. Better than expected! Bottle cellared several months via trade with Ferris

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good pumpkin beer if you’re not real big on pumpkin beers. The pumpkin and spices are there but fairly subdued. I’d prefer it be amped up more.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours an orange red with a white head. Nose is pumpkin and spice. The beer is very smooth in taste and mouthfeel. This was my first pumpkin beer. Not my favorite but not bad.

(650ml bottle) In-person trade from Ferris. Pours a quick dissipating yellow frothy head atop a red body. Nose of very mild pumpkin pulp and slight spice. Somewhat thin, tonic and vegetable. Not sweet at all and authentic take on a pumpkin ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split at Endo’s, thanks to MJ for the trade, 26/05/13.
Very lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head.
Nose is spiced fruits, clove, sugars, pumpkin, caramel.
Taste comprises sweet sugars, steeped fruits, clove, spice, pumpkin, light apricot notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, fruity spicey finish.
One of the best (I’m not a big fan) pumpkin beers I’ve had - good balance of sweet and spice.

I got this in a slightly different bottle but I think it is essentially the same brew as listed here. The pumpkin pie flavor was a tad overwhelming for me and really drowned out any of the other flavors. Personally I feel it is a bit of a novelty and I might get it for a Thanksgiving or Halloween party but wouldn’t purchase it regularly.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear deep copper with nice big white head that after a few minutes amounts to a small white ring around the glass. Aroma is of nice pumpkin pie(cinnamon, nutmeg, and some other spices you may find in pumpkin pie). Flavours consist of pumpkin pie spices, mostly nutmeg, cinnamon, and slightly nutty. definitely one of the better pumpkin beers i’ve had.
