No notes on this beer. I had several beers where I was only able to kind of take small notes and therefore everyone suffers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin, dissapating head. golden, light amber, honey colour. Pretty enough. Smells of sweet malt and pumpkin pie spices, not so much pumpkin. A good medium-full body. Taste of pumpkin pie spices, no pumpkin and slight hop bitterness. Did I mention the spices? Clove in particular. Overall, it’s a typical pumpkin (pie) beer. Forgettable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has the most pleasing "pumpkin" appearance of any pumpkin ale I’ve ever had: a beautiful, deep rich orange. Not overly sweety, mostly strong spice character stands out than pumpkin flavor. Spice wise, it’s more of a ginger/allspice profile than a cinnamon/nutmeg one. Nice nose. Bright on the tongue.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Pumpkin pie aromas clearly evident, with hints of citrus hops, but not too much.
Appearance: Cloudy orange with no head.
Taste: Medium sweetness throughout with hints of sourness in the finish.
Palate: Medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation, long finish.
Overall: The best pumpkin ale I’ve tasted this season (2013). It’s very pumpkiny, despite having no actual pumpkin in the recipe, with the spice flavors apparent, but tempers it with the hops for great flavor. I really enjoyed this one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
For some reason this year I have felt the need to try Pumpkin beers.
I thought This would be a pumpkin beer.
However, after tasting it, is a a good ale... with a little too much spice.
The pour is cloudy amber, with a small whitish head.
the Aroma is sweat malt, clover and nutmeg.
The beer lingers a bit on the pallate, and the flavor is pretty much over powered by the spices.
An ok beer.

Dan’s Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #26 of 90. Tap at Arcadia, shared taster (hands down best taster offering I’ve ever had...a total of 9-3oz pours for $7.99). Pours clear orange. Pumkin, spices and giner nose with flavors that follow. I little bite on the throat, but pretty good overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-amber body with a clinging white head. The aroma stands out immediately and is dominated by spices. Smells like potpouri. Pretty smooth mouthfeel, a bit oily. The spices are not as prominent in the flavor. More of the pumpkin flavor comes through there. Finishes somewhat sour. Not a bad pumpkin beer.

Julie says too much nutmeg and allspice there is a bit of a hop bitter bite not really a Julie beer. She gives a 2.0

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy, brown-orange color with a thin off white head that quickly dissipates. Traces of some sediment. Lots of baking spices in the aroma, with cinnamon and allspice being most dominant. There is some fresh pumpkin and toasted malt in the background. Overpowering spices and a faint smokey flavor drown out any pumpkin that may be in here and leaves a slight medicinal aftertaste. Disappointing because I enjoy these spices in my Fall seasonals when balanced properly.
