Fairly bitter with some pumpkin flavor and some pumpkin pie spice. A bit thin. Could be more full bodied for the amount of spice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of lots of cinamon, cloves and malts. Pretty dark colour. Flavours include cinamon, cloves, nuts, maple and a bit of hop. A bit dry and roasty malts wich adds a little hint of dark chocolate and coffee in the bitterness and dryness. At first i seems like a helloweenish simple ale, but it is actually pretty good for what it is.

Pours a frothy tan head. Body is full a large bubbles and brown colored. Reminds me of freshly poured root beer. Typical aroma of a pumpkin pie. Flavors of clove, allspice and some cinnamon. Bitterness lingers on palate. Thin to average body.

Can from TJís. Rich caramel & spice aromas matched in the flavor. Itís a good Pumpkin beer, but Pumpkin beers are kindaí odd.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Roasted caramelized pumpking since some nutmeg and clove in the aroma; nice deep amber-brown color with frothy beige head; nice caramelized pumpkin maltiness up front that moves quickly to a d dry spicy finish with a bit of hop bitterness, the spices are balanced and not overwhelming and therefore a nice characteristic, but donít dominate; medium body, average mouthfeel; Anderson Valley seems to be overlooked and underrated these days, but their beers are typically quite good; that being said, I was hoping for more from this beer, but was unfortunately disappointed (I donít like the hoppiness in the finish as it seems incongruous with the spice blend used); actually, this beer seems to improve as it warms, so Iím liking it more and more and starting to think that the Bravo hop flavors (earthy spice and herb, fruity and floral) actually work well in this Pumpkin Ale...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 fl oz bottle from De Bierkoning, bottled in July 2015. Clear, deep red with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, tan head. Fruity-spicy aroma of cinnamon, redcurrant, elderberries and plums. Sweetish, fruity-spicy taste of cinnamon, toffee, elderberries, plums and raisins, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter finish with lots of cinnamon. Medium body, creamy and slightly oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Well-balanced, malt-accented ale with a huge load of cinnamon. Didnít really get the pumpkin which is supposed to be good I think. Since I like cinnamon, I enjoyed this beer a lot!
