2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
draft... light copper body, great super lasting head with great retention and lacing... the nose has a touch of spice, in between a pumpkin beer and xmas beer... the taste is lots of spice as the backbone of the beer, but somehow it works and doesnít over power, really nice cinnamon notes... not my style of beers at all but I enjoyed this one

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at The Coney. Mild spice aroma. Cinnamon, allspice, and whatever else goes into pumpkin pie. Light sugary sweetness with a bit of nutty character. Medium dark amber clear with thin off-white head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with brown sugar and malt. Pumpkin pie spices. Neutral fruit with nutty finish. Mild hoppy and nutty after. A decent pumpkin beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with a large soapy tan head. The aroma is quite spicy with the spices listed on the bottle (cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg) all being represented. There is some toasted caramel malt underneath and little, if any, pumpkin on the aroma. Medium body thatís slick and smooth with very unobtrusive carbonation on the finish. The flavor starts exactly as noted for the aroma. The finish has pepper and a hint of pumpkin (or possibly some fruit). A decent beer with a very cool label.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a nice clear orangish amber color with a long-lasting off-white head. The aroma has big pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, with a bit of sweet caramel malt. Flavor is like a pumpkin ale thatís a bit overspiced and doesnít have any pumpkin. Caramel malt and big spiced notes, with lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. I donít like the mouthfeel much, as the spices linger a little more than Iíd like and itís a bit thin. Mediocre overall.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Central Market, 11/10/13
Aroma: The aroma is vegetal and spice, mild pumpkin, and cinnamon
Appearance: It pours a dark orange color, some beige head, and mid-plus lacework
Flavor: The taste is much the same, a little too much vegetal, not enough pumpkin spice
Palate: The body is medium, it has a decent mouthfeel, average carbonation, and a tingly finish
I wanted this one to be better, but the vegetal flavor overrides the pumpkin spice and makes it a less than stellar example of the style for me.

Aroma is spices and perfumed sour/sweetness, canít tell if its pumpkin or yam. The flavor is spices, citrus, mild wheat notes and the same sour/sweetness from the aroma in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, deeper orange colored body with a thin, white head that leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet with a blend of soft spices and an acidic tartness. Clove and cinnamon stick out the most of the spices. Light caramels. Flavor is a moderately sweet, dry caramels and various spices that give this a distinct autumn taste. I can see myself watching the leaves change colors while drinking this. Very season-appropriate. A bit of an earthy bitterness dries this out and it finishes with just a touch of acidic citrus and opens up a light doughy taste. Light to medium bodied. Overall, a tasty spiced beer. The spices donít overpower, but stay rather even keel while being distinct at the same time. I like the light citrus and earth too. Good balance and very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber beer with a short lived off white head. Surprisingly subtle aroma, but what there was hinted of nutmeg and spice. Spicey beer with cinnamon, nutmeg, and pie spices. Some underlying caramel sweetness and almost orange juice citrus. Medium bodied. Okay pumpkin beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with MrRain. Pours a slightly hazy rust color with llots of large carbonation bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. Thin sudsy head that completely disappeared before I took my first sip. Light vegetable aroma along with some cinnamon. The flavor is a little bit of malt, some light vegetable flavors, and more dominantly, cinnamon and nutmeg. The cinnamon and nutmeg linger and bring on a dry finish.
