Bottle from Party Source. Poured hazy copper color with an average creamy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Average spice, nutmeg and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Moderate sweet spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Not my style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured a deeper orangish / amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aroams of stronger cinnamon (reminds me of big red gum), other spices, and pumpkins. Lots of spices. Tastes of spices and pumpkins. If you like pumpkin pie with lots of spices, you’ll like this one (for me, I like less spices and more pumpkin).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Deep orange-amber beer quite cloudy with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly spicy. Some clove, nutmeg and allspice in the nose. There is a soft malty backnote as well. A bit of lightly toffeeish sweetness and a bit of cherryish yeasty fruitiness. Sort of a spice English ale. It’s a bit different from other pumpkin beers and I quite like it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the HopCat. I am starting to find pumpkin beers late summer. This one had significant and distinct pumpkin, as well as other spices to enhance drinkability. Cloudy yellow with some lace. Above average mouthfee. Not bad, and cinammon and nutmeg are spices I like. Mildly spicy aromas.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
#3,500. Bottle from Capone’s. Turbid deep copper pour with 1-finger whitish head. Aroma of huge pumpkin spice, cinnamon, plus caramel malt and nutmeg. Tastes caramel malty, with the flavor of pumpkin pie + the crust, and the applicable spices to go with it. Medium palate heft, with a smooth finish. This one was nice, and kudos for another great label that is very original and season-appropriate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy orange amber with a small forth of wispy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramel, nutmeg and pumpkin, with some citric tartness. Starts with decent body and sweet maltiness showing some light cinnamon spice before a drier, doughy pumpkin flesh finish with some light fruity tart character. An interesting spiced beer, but could be a little more assertive and balanced.
