4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Are you kidding me. I wish they all could be California pumpin beeeeers...This one rocked. The first taste was OK but after that each drink was a pumpkin orgasim in my mouth. Tastes good smells good feels good...Its just freaking good. I will have to get a piece of pumpkin bubble yum after this. This is a good drink at work, at home, at church. Any place you want a drink. PUmpkin this bad boy out. I will wait in the field with Linus for the Great PUmpkin if he is handing out this beer. Remember drink safely and if drinking at work make sure you have Big Red just in case your boss comes calling.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can pour. Rich copper color with soapy head. Nose is straight autumnal spice cabinet. Not nauseating (comes across natural), but not enticing. Nothing about this nose make me want to take a sip. This is a perfume better suited to a pie. Taste is more palatable. More vegetal than all-spice. Like almost all beers in this sub genre, I do not understand the appeal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep clear ruby red with a light tan head. Aroma of cola, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin spice. Taste is sweet with a dark spicy note. Bitter in the finish. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark golden brown. Aroma is full of spice, not much pumpkin. The taste introduces the pumpkin and follows with more spice. This isn’t anything remarkable but it’s very drinkable and has a nice "autumn" feel to it. I liked it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep amber brown with some red tones and creamy tan, quickly dissipating head. It smells like pumpkin, molasses, some spice. Nice roasty notes caramel and pumpkin sweetness, a light vegetal note and a medium bittersweet finish. Medium bodied with some fairly lively carbonation. I like it. I don’t think the spice is overpowering and the darker malt bill lends well to pumpkin flavor.

Pours a dark black/brown color with a huge off-white head. The aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, spices, and sweet malts. The taste is light and full of spices and pumpkin. Pretty good but a little to light for my taste.
