3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Bright caramel, hazy, thin spritzy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Big spicey nose, some cinnamon, nutmeg, but moreso
all-spice.   Heavy on the all-spice as far as flavor, but present is nutmeg and a bit more cinnamon than most.   Not much background,
body and mouthfeel are moderate.   All-spice is dominant throughout.   Wouldn’t mind the all-spice to be a little more muted, with
more nutmeg and cinnamon.   As is, its fairly decent.   No real pumpkin flavor tho.   Thanks Chris for the bottle!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
More flavorful than some pumpkin seasonals, but it was mostly spices, as you’d expect. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark orange and copper with a lightly off white head. The aroma had some spicy nutmeg and cinnamon. The pumpkin smell was light with some apples. The taste is definite pumpkin rind with some nutmeg. There is also a little bit of cinnamon. Good for those that like more pumpkin in their pumpkin ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a trace of a tan head. The aroma was light spices and fruits with a candied ginger presence dominating. The flavor was tart, spicy and a little bitter with a fruity presence and pervading candied ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body. Solid.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose extremely strong on the spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, some vanilla, but a soft, sweet maltiness underlies. Pours murky orange-brown with a dull beige head. Very autumnal taste, the above mentioned spices, pulled back a bit and in perfect balance with each other, stronger malt coming up to meet them from underneath. Almost no sweetness or bitterness here, closer to bland than anyone would like, but there’s a nice earthy overtone and even the thin, weakened malt gets in a punch or two. Cheers for the balls of straight up admitting, right off the bat, that there’s no pumpkin in this, but I need more out of the base beer, even if the limited adjuncts are deployed well.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2007 Bottle: Great aroma of ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. This is about a close as you’re going to get for duplicating a pumpkin pie aroma. It pours a slightly hazy orange with a minimal off-white head that fades quickly to a ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a light sweet caramel maltiness. All the pumpkin pie spice comes in the finish. Great combination of nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon with the slightest hint of grassy bitterness. I’ll be surprised if anyone scores this as well as me, but I like pumpkin beers and this is as good as I’ve had for a non-Imperial pumpkin beer.
