3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2015 Bottle. 5.4%. Clear copper-amber pour, that produces a minimal bubbly foam even when poured aggressively. Aroma is potent, quite a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of pumpkin. Taste is malty and heavy on the nutmeg, hint of cinnamon, and sweet caramel. This is a pretty good seasonal, and despite the presence of fairly heavy flavours, it remains a balanced, full bodied ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, thanks to Macadem. Pours medium amber, thin off-white head, passable lacing. Nose is very soft, with cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, some malt as well. Palate is very pumpkin-pie like, but still quite soft, and honestly rather watery. I like this, and it makes me desirous of having, better pumpkin beers in the future.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale golden copper colour, finger of head (after an aggressive pour) little retention, body barbonation is almost non-existent and no real lacing.
Scent is rather mild, but the nutmeg seems to dominate followed by some green pumpkin, some cinnamon and leafy hops on the finish.
The spices really shine on this one, with nutmeg and cinnamon coming through. The pumpkin comes through on the finish and and is a bit nutty with some bready caramel malts that linger on the tongue.
Medium bodied ale, goes down smooth with a touch of a dry finish. I thought it would be a bit more watery given the lack of visible body carbonation.
Overall this pumpkin offering is quite tasty, easily drinkable, and is the perfect complement to a fall meal

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
"Beer appears crystal clear reddish brawn with a noisy tan cap that is quickly reducing to nothing. Right off the top the aroma reminds me exactly of apple cinnamon yogurt. I guess can smell pumpkin in this but I might just be being tricked by the name of the brew. Aroma is ok maybe just a touch sour. Taste is watery and malty with a cinnamon kick and a clove finish. Can’t really notice any pumpkin in the taste but it does remind me of pumpkin pie. Sour, watery and a touch of spice this sums up this brew. Drinkable but disappointing but what ells do you expect from Alley Kat."

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden clear amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste of pumpkin pie and nutmeg with a bit of cinnamon. Nice taste until the aftertaste took over which was not all that pleasant. Could of easily scored much higher because of that.
