At Total Wine’s Autumn tasting class; one of the better ones of the night, in my opinion. Mild, pleasant pumpkin aroma, Flavor is pumpkin, spices, clove, cinnamon? Rich, tasty. A little nutmeg. Pumpkin flavor is subtle, not overwhelming.

On tap @ Tustin Brewing. Dark amber pour with khaki foam. Nose is the typical nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, all spice, etc. Toasted bread and caramel. Sort of grassy, though. Maybe some thyme? Flavor has a weird spice and herbal bitterness. Chalky. Sweet caramel malts and toasted cereal grains. Lots of ginger and nutmeg.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid pumpkin, but I am partial to this style. Nothing detracts here. Nothing overly exceptional, either, but that’s OK. Good spice notes. Recommended.

Nice caramel pumpkin aroma. Aperance is ugly looks like flat coke. Taste is pretty good. Spice and caramel very seasonal. Palate is sticky and flat. Not bad for winter. Great aroma

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle purchased at Julio’s Liquors. Very dark amber with full lasting white head. Aroma is the standard nuance of nutmeg, caramel, nutmeg and earthy malts. Maybe a tone of English malts.
I would call this more a fall brew rather then a pumpkin brew, not much in the flavor of real pumpkin. All along the spice and dirty/ earthy malt tones. Most of the flavor is nutmeg and cinnamon. Nothing makes me want to purchase this again. I don’t see anything that makes it sand above any other in the style.
