Reddish amber with decent head. Smells of nutmeg, cinnamon....spices. Tastes like nutmeg, cinnamon...spices, maybe some brown sugar and sweet malts. A touch thin, but quite tasty and easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma is pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, hints of cloves. Taste follows, a slight sweetness but mostly the spice. Dry and refreshing on the mouth. Not bad, but I think I have become more of a pumpkin beer snob over the years and this turns out middle of the road.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at the brewhouse. Like most of their brews, disappointing, and really only sampled it for the rating. Taste is weak. Served ice cold, which probably killed it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Brea location. Dark orange / amber pour. Aroma of pumpkin, a little spice (coriander i think). The flavor is nice and palate is good, but a little light on the malt.

I tried this at the Eugene location as part of a sampler. Great underwhelming pumpkin taste. One of the better Pumpkin Aleís I have ever had.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Irvine location. Dark, orangish amber pour, transparent, with a thin layer of wispy beige head. A distinct clove aroma instantly grabs my nostrils, along with a bit of ginger. Some light vanilla and caramels also combine, softening up the gingerbread cookie aroma a bit. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. Lots of clove and ginger spice - I wish it had more cinnimon and nutmeg characters to give it a bit of a more traditional pumpkin pie flavor. Its rare that I complain about this aspect of a beer, buts its almost over attenuated. The dry finish makes the ginger and clove seem all the more dominant, which overpowers the caramel malt background a bit. The spices start to get a bit astringent toward the finish. Not a bad beer though - easy drinking, great accompaniment to my meal.
