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.

Draft at their Frederick, MD location served in a pils glass, clear dark copper color with off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, faint clove) and some caramel. Taste adds a little graham cracker sweetness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, soft with spicy/sweet finish. Pretty good balance between pumpkin and spice, nice.

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.

Deep amber body with little head. Aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg with some sweetness. Flavor is chock full of pumpkin goodness, little hoppiness and a well-rounded sweetness. Definitely good if pumpkin ales appeal to you.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the Boulder brewery.<P>
Beer is medium-amber colored with a thick, large, creamy, beige, mostly diminishing head.<P>
Not really enough pumpkin character to satisfy mu pumpkin-beer craving. The aroma was malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, caramel; Hoppy with moderate note of resin/pine, light note of lemon zest; Yeasty with a light note of dough; Miscellaneous notes included a light-to-moderate cinnamon and a light note of pumpkin pie filling.<P>
The flavor was moderately sweet, lightly bitter, moderately acidic/sour with a long, lightly acidic, lightly bittersweet finish. Slightly dull and vegetal in the finish.<P>
The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

Good because the pumpkin and spices were not totally overdone as with most of these types of beers.
