2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thin head, mild carbonation. Copper pour with scents of pumpkin and spice. Fizzy kinda metallic taste at first but then the pumpkin flavor settles in. Light on the spice though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong aroma of pumpkin pie spics, brown sugar, just what I would expect from this style of beer. The flavor hints at cinnamon and nutmeg, with a solid bready malt backbone. Very little hops. Above average pumpkin beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from craft beer outlet. Smells and tastes of spices, but not too much pumpkin. Pretty good, not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a darker hazy orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was of pumpkin and a bit of spice. The flavor was the same with a little malt and caramel thrown in. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
As pumpkin beers go, this isn’t noteworthy at all. I barely taste any spices and no pumpkin flavor. Good sort of soft and sticky mouthfeel. Tartness on the tail. I can drink it, but I wouldn’t go back for more.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an orange amber with a white head, medium to lively carbonation, and thin lacing. Doughy spiced aroma, cloves... allspice. Your mouth is bombarded with spices and a semi sweet taste, a little sour too. Average carbonation in your mouth with a light body and a semi bitter finish. Overall a 12.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Translucent dark amber color. Thick, creamy, sandy colored head. Heavily carbonated. Had to pause after pouring half of this and wait a couple of minutes for the massive head to diminish before pouring the rest of the bottle. Excellent retention and great lacing.
The allspice and nutmeg dominate the nose. Very nice level of sweet underlying malt smell. Light yeasty notes.
The taste is totally sweet-malt based with spicy pumpkin flavors. Once again the allspice and nutmeg dominate, but the cinammon makes a light showing on the back end. Nice caramely edge to this one.
Medium bodied, creamy and smooth make this feel very nice.
An easy to drink (and enjoy) festive ale here. A good representation of the style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clean orange-copper color resulting in very little lacing. Very good mouthfeel, with pumpkin taste dominating the barely perceptible spices giving it less a pumpkin pie taste and more a straight up pumpkin beer. Adequate carbonation and the flavor remains for a bit.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not enough pumpkin for me. Odd tasting yeast for the style, but not necessarily bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber with a one finger head. Aroma is very spicy. Cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice make themselves prevalent. Taste is very spicy as well but not from hops, from the spices they pack into this beer. Palate is medium, slighty watery on the back end after the spices wash away. Overall a decent beer, perfect for what its for. The fall.
