3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at BJ Desert Ridge, AZ
Hazy amber color. Very light cinnamon aroma. Basic Ale, lean, with a very light sourness and light cinnamon touch. Correct bitterness. The cinnamon being so light, this beer is not as bad as other pumpkin ales.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(draught at Plano location) pours clear orange-yellow with spare head. Nose of pumpkin mash, cinnamon, nutmeg, and star anise. Taste is heavily spiced, cinnamon, raw pumpkin and a faint trace of lager hops. Finishes slightly creamy but also bitter like hairspray. Honest not bad just a little over spiced and pedestrian.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at BJs San Jose. Gold with a light orange tint and a thick head that leaves some clingy lace. Pie spices and fleshy pumpkin in the aroma. Start a bit bland and finishes sweet with a thin body. Not much malt flavor and just a little spice in the beginning. Watery texture. Not offensive, but to bland and light for a pumpkin ale. I guess I just like the style thick and malty.

LIquid Pumpkin Pie! From beginning to end, this looks, smells, and taste like pie, almost unnatural. This uncanny likeness is the only drawback from this beer.

Big spicy nose. Pours a light amber with a solid white head. Heavy spice flavor, cinnamon, clove, allspice, mild pumpkin flavor, not bad. A little too spicy though.
