3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep dark amber color, cola like fizzy head that fades to a thin foam film. Malty and sweet with fall spices but does not present much pumpkin. Thin and watery body with a dry finish. About par with most other pumpkin ales.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma caramel, cereal, herbs, clove,
Appearance red, clear, tan foam,
Taste light sweetness, medium sweetness,
Palate light body, thin feel, soft carbonation,
Overall a very light almost watery mouth feel that is more malty than pumpkin. Not a bad pumpkin beer but there are many other ones that are much better. I would not suggest this beer to a friend who has never had a pumpkin beer before.

This pumpkin ale poured a dark Amber with a big, beautiful, tan head. Scents include trace pumpkin, a little spice and malt. First swig was of medium carbonation with flavours of allspice, pumpkin pie and cinnamon. Finish was a little bitter with the allspice lingering...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. The aroma has caramel, ginger, pumpkin, raisin. Dark brown, bit reddish coloured beer with an off-white-beige, thin head. The taste is sweet, has lots of spice, caramel. Quite some body for a 6% ABV beer. Bit sticky mouthfeel. Normally I am not a big fan of these kinds of beer but well I enjoyed it.

[ Can ][ 12oz ][ vtafro ][ Bonus ][ Snifter Tulip ][ 3.4.15 ]
>> Thank you Victor- pours low haze red amber with dwindling beige foam, no retention. Nose is fall leaves, perfume, potpourri, gummy candy. Taste is a bit watery/thin, powdery, dusty, with more fall leaves and earthy flavor than anything pumpkin. Definitely a fall beer, probably not super fresh, but fun to try.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
American pumpkin ale - a style I only recently learned to appreciate - with yellowish light beige, creamy, nicely lacing head and dark brownish purple colour, like an old red wine. Perfumey aroma makes me happy immediately: pleasant and a bit frivolous, with impressions of cloves, milk chocolate bars, butterscotch, pumpkin pie, toast, hazelnut oil, dried ginger, cinnamon, mango. Fruity, crisp onset with medium carbonation, sweetish but rapidly turning spicy, cloves and ginger abounding and stretching till deep into the finish, with a drying, even somewhat sharp effect; in between, a sweet, toasted, nutty and caramelly maltiness reigns, soft and slick, bready. Finish encompasses not only the drying, resinous spiciness, but also a good deal of peppery hop bitterness, as well as a hint of warming alcohol. Wish I had this in autumn... Based on the aroma, I expected a sweeter and much less bitter taste, but once you get used to its spicy sharpishness and unexpected hop bitterness, this becomes quite agreeable and characterful. Very pleasant little beer!
