3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at BJís In Mesquite, TX. Pours a clear, deep orange/amber with beige creamy head. Aroma of strong pumpkin, nutmeg, some cinnamon and malt. Flavor is much the same with a strong spiciness and solid malty backbone with a very nice sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium body, medium-high carbonation, solid body. Overall I felt this was one of the tastier pumpkin brews I had this year. Good stuff!

Pours out a transparent dark orange, fluffy khaki head with good lacing. Oh, that smell! Perhaps the best smelling pumpkin ale I ever smelt. Creamy pumpkin pie pilling, a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is found lacking though. Still good, just lighter bodied than I demand, crisp and clean. Not as creamy as the smell would hint at. Good, not great.

5oz taster. Pours clear orange with minimal head. Lovely aroma of pumpkin & nutmeg but the taste is much more subtle. Exceptionally watery mouthfeel. Average-to-below-average pumpkin ale.

[Tap] Pours a bright orange color with a small amount of white head. Nose is of clove, ginger and nutmeg. Sweet and malty in taste. Caramel and some toffee notes throughout. Typical pumpkin pie spices with a heavy emphasis on ginger. The body is a bit thin, but really not too bad. High carbonation level and easy to drink. It was good to try.
