3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
rood/bruin met schuimige bruine kraag. aroma van pompoen, speculaas en wat zoetig. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, licht zuurtje, normaal qua sterkte, redelijk pompoenfruit, matig moutig, ambermout, pepertje, kaneel. iets aan de dunne kant, bittertje blijft iets te lang hangen, neigende later naar iets metaligs. smaken zijn verder goed, maar had over het algemeen iets voller en robuuster gemogen van mij

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a brown color with low white head. Aroma is caramel and spices. Taste is dominated by nutmeg, medium bodied and low bitterness. Ok but too spicy for me.

12oz can shared. pours a light to medium brown color with minimal white head. the aroma predominately spices...cinnamon and nutmeg, with lots of pumpkin mixed in....the flavor is more of the same. plenty of spice and pumpkin evenly balanced throughout..just a bit on the thinner body side...a little thicker and it would be excellent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chestnut colored with white head. Aroma is faintly both ornage and pumpkins spices, not unlike a mulled orange peel tea. Refreshing malt base thatís both sweet and clean at the same time. Very drinkabke. $1.6/12oz

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the bottle, pours a deep, dark translucent blood red with a thick off-white head. Smells or earthy spices and pumpkin pie, some dark malts, piney. Taste is thin, not very flavorful but for some reason not watery. Light notes of pumpkin pie spice, bitter at the end. Very much a beginnerís pumpkin ale. Itís ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: dark malt, nutmeg, cinnamon, spicy.
Appearance: clear amber color, nice beige had.
Taste: low bitterness, really zesty (nutmeg, cinnamon), dark malt, some pumpkin notes (weak), quite bland.
Palate: medium body and low carbonation, spicy finish.
Overall: Quite difficult to say that this is actually pumpkin beer. Very spicy and thatís is boring.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Dark brown body that shows a dark red hue as light shines through it. Through the darkness it is still apparent that the beer is pretty transparent. The head is a lucious creamy light tan fluff that leaves great lacing on the glass.
Aroma: I pick up cinnamon and some clove. It smells pretty standard for a pumpkin ale.
Taste: There is a nice toasty bread flavor to this beer right up front. Itís very delicious tasting and I just keep getting more bread characteristics...itís like eating wheat toast. A cinnamon flavor comes through, but Iím not picking up any other spices. The cinnamon is about medium strength but the base beer has a lot of flavor that pushes it out of the way a bit.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is very present while drinking, but afterwards it is a bit thin. It has perfect carbonation. Not a lot of hop or grain bitterness. Pretty standard feeling overall. The beer is highly drinkable.
Overall: Itís a really good pumpkin beer. If youíre a fan of strongly spiced pumpkin beers it probably wouldnít be fr you. If you want just enough pumpkin spice to remind you that it is the fall, my recommendation is to try it. What I really like is that the base beer is tasty enough to stand by itself. Even if you arenít a fan of pumpkin spice, the nice toasted flavor in the beer really makes this a pleasant beer to drink. Iím going to pick up some more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Imbibe Wine. Nose is light nutmeg and cinnamon and a hint of cocoa. Clear rusty brown with a small beige head. Flavor is pumpkin pie spices and caramel. Very mediocre pumpkin ale. Glad I only bought one $2 bottle not a sixer or case!
