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.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Tap at BJs Sugar Land. 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.

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
Not the worst pumpkin beer Iíve ever had, but still I find them lacking. Perhaps Iím expecting a bit more sweetness to come forward and since it never does, Iím left slightly disappointed. Either way, this wasnít a bad beer at all. Aroma is slightly vegetative, perfumy with enough nutmeg to notice. Appearance is a light amber color, off-white head. Flavor was a bit green, vegetative with some subtle cinammon and nutmeg spices to notice but not overpower. A bit watery, I felt if it were more creamy, with a little more sweetness left in it it could have been better. But, still...not bad.

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.

(On draught at Papago). Pours a clear dark copper color with tan head and active carbonation. Aroma has pumpkin, nutmeg, coriander and buttery pie crust. Taste is sweet malt with more spices. Thin bodied with oily texture. Nice pumpkin beer!

A pretty average pumpking beer. A bit synthetic with a bit of spice and caramel at the finish. Light flavor overall with a malty sweet aroma.
