2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a slight hazy bronze color with a very small off white head.
Aroma is a decent dose of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and various pumpkin spices.
Taste however, is a bit odd. Not really picking up too many of the flavors i sensed in the aroma. It’s a bit watery and any flavor just kinda gets lost in the mix. Nothing really exciting.
Not much to be said about the palate. A little rough on the palate, watery. Odd aftertaste. Didn’t really enjoy this pumpkin ale

Pours a clear amber with a thick lt tan head...lively...decent lacing and retention. aroma has roasty malt, some spices, and a hint of pumpkin. Flavor is mostly spicey and a bit muddled...a bit of earthiness at the end. Mouthfeel is a bit thin...almost watery and the finish is spicy and a bit dry.

On tap at Good Beer NYC. An amber/orange coloured pour with a small white head on top. Aroma of pumpkin and spice. Tastes of pumpkin, spice, caramel, slight sweetness. OK for a pumpkin beer but give me the Southern Tier any day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Lake Ella - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, sparkling, off-white bubbly head that leaves a brief trace of lace. Aroma is spicy-sweet with with some light potpourri accents. Flavor sweet, just enough spiciness, some nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, a bit of molasses. Not as overbearing as some pumpkin ales. Mouthfeel is thick enough.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A promising pour of amber liquid with a tidy head that leaves some decent lacing. The aroma is lightly spiced. The taste is mild and slightly sweet. It’s not a malty sweet though. It seems like the malt is complemented by the spices. It’s not too pronounced. This beer finishes clean and refreshing.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Expected amber-orange from bottle into regular pint glass. Ok head that settles to a thin cap. Aroma is weird blend of spices, hops, and rubber. Flavor starts out like that old-candy note you get in lagers that have gone bad (not skunkiness). Spice is there, but hard to get past the bad-lager quality. Pumpkin pie in the finish, which is nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium caramel color with a huge foamy orange-cream head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was dryish and dusty with fairly strong cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor was dryish and bitter with a strong cinnamon and nutmeg presence but little else of note. Medium length dry and spicy finish. Medium body. Ok.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper with a white head. Vegetal pumpking and light malt in the aroma. Medium body. Flavor is similar to aroma. The vegetal bit throws me off. Easy going but kinda boring.
