3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle via trade. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet pumpkin pie aroma with the usual list of accompanying spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. The flavor has a nice dose of pumpkin that is balanced by the spices. This is somewhat thin and watery. Flavor fades into the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz bottle via trade with TURDFERGUSON, thanks Sam!) clearish orange-brown with soapy bubbles. Nose of brown sugar, real pumpkin. Taste of wheat bread, honey, pumpkin, with a smooth and creamy body that was also oily slick on the palate. Medium thickness. Sampled alongside 14 other pumpkin beers, this was the general consensus as the best of the evening that also had some pumpkin flavor so thanks for sending this Sam!

On tap at the Raleigh Times. Ashy amber pour with a decent head, moderate carbonation. Strong nose of more or less generic spice, with some faint pumpkin powder in there along with what seem like nutmeg and clove. The flavor was very mild, almost like an APA with modest scent. Okay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ brewery: This one poured a cloudy, slightly orangish color. There was a small off white head that left just a bit of lacing. Nice nose of pumpkin spice without being overpowering. The taste is good also. Pumpkin spice is dominant, with a nice malty beer behind it. The spice is not overpowering. This is a well done pumpkin beer.

Pour is a copper with an average white head. Aroma in lots of pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is a little more muted. Some pumpkin and some spice but nothing like the aroma promised. Worth a try though.

One of my favorite pumpkin beers, Harvest Time shows a strong malt backbone buoyed by delectable earthy fall spices. Full bodied, but easily drinkable, everything is well in balance here.
