3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint at Global Brew in Edwardsville. This poured with a bit of a pumpkin hue and it was opaque. Not much foam. The nose was pumpkin bread like with pumpkin and, nutmeg, and a bit of cinnamon. The flavor was similar. It is almost like drinking a pumpkin pie. There are some very soft hops which grew at the finish. The local standard for pumpkin beers is Schlafly and while this does not quite achieve that it is very nice. Perhaps the best effort from this brewery that I have had. Nice job, Big Muddy.

Aroma is spices, mild/medium sweetness and pumpkin bread. The flavor is spices mixed with sweetness, pumpkin, fruit and a tart finish. The spices mixed with sweetness was unique, pretty good pumpkin ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/17/13
Aroma: The nose is bread and "off" malts with some spice, not that pumpkiny or nutmegy though
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange-gold color with a small head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is sweet and malty, some spice, vanilla, and a mild earthiness as well
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has an alright mouthfeel, and a tingly, lightly dry finish
This beer being not really all that impressive to go along with being not really all that pumpkiny makes for a mediocre score from me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark hazy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma is of mild pumpkin spices and nutmeg, and some caramel malt. Taste same as aroma with some mild hops bitterness. Sweet and mildly bitter on the end. Palate is a medium body with good carbonation. This brew is not overly sweet but I would have liked a bit more pumpkin spices in the flavor. Overall still a descent showing for a pumpkin ale, good overall.

Dark amber color. Aromas of malt and caramel. Flavors of pumpkin spices; not much of a pumpkin flavor. But overall a light and decent pumpkin ale.

Bottle. Pours an hazy off orange color with no head. Nose is malt and caramel, but missing the pumpkin and seasonal spices. Taste is mild pumpkin with very subtle spice. Very light. Finishes on some pumpkin notes, have had much better ! Quaff Score 6 / 10
