3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My buddy bought a case of this for halloween and i drank a few bottles. I thought it was a very good idea and the beer pulled it off well. The taste of the pumpkin was strong but not overwhelming. A good beer for a cold halloween night.

Bottle. Picked up at PBC. Pours with an average sized head and a fizzy dispostion. Murky and dark amber in color. Light malt and hop aroma, very disappointing in this aspect as I was looking forward to some spice and only found a slight nose. Flavor is yeasty with a strong clove presence. Full bodied and a little sweet as it lays on your tongue. Creamy and sticky with a fizzy head. This is really tasty for about 4 swallows, and then it becomes just Ok. Not bad stuff, not great.

A slightly below average ber, but somethign decent to try. A friends dad loves this stuff. I haven’t aquired the pumkin ale taste quit yet, but its something that interestes me in the fall. It has a nice colour of redish amber and a decent head. The pumpkin comes out in the aroma, but not as much in the taste. Its a little sweet, with some spice noticed as well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a medium amber color with a large off white head. I could definitely pick out the pumpkin smell in this beer (more so than many of the local brew pub pumpkin ales I’ve had of late). Light pumpkin and spice taste. Smelled better than it tasted. Nothing special, but then again, nothing too bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle Pours a clear deep copper with a short lived fizzy white head. No real lacing Aroma is a slight cinimon/pumpkin thats smells sweet like cinimon candy. Some malts and no hop aroma. Flavor is consistant, but not as sweet as it smelled. Lively carbonation and a nice feel. Surprisingly bitter aftertaste. Interesting but I’ll never get used to pumpkin beer.

Dark amber/orange color. Scent is of pumpkin pie. I really liked this one. The flavor is a perfect balance. The pumpkin is prominent, but not overpowering. Hope to drink some more of this before the seasons out.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This one was unpleasant from start to finish. Pours light brown, with a quickly diminishing head. Aroma is of spices - nutmeg and pumpkin. Flavor is pumpkin pie spices, with a pumkin flavor that just tastes off to me. Pretty bad.
