3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pleasantly (dry) hopped for a harvest ale, this seasonal pours a rich substantial head over a dark orange body that presents a hop forward balance with roasted malt caramels and mild spices present more in aroma than taste. This brew finishes crisp with lingering bitters of pine and grass. A welcome variation in a season of malt forward beers.

Brilliant copper kettle color with lasting ivory head. Boiled yam, allspice, caramel aromas. medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Decent allspice, clove, sweet bread, caramel flavors; nicely bitter finish----not bad.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Decent amount of pumpkin flavor and finish. I was hoping for more spice and better pumpkin flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours a dark amber with a fleeting head. Average lacing.
S - Sweet caramel malt, yeasty spice bead, some ginger, mushy apples, very bready.
T - Spicy hops upfront with underlying caramel malt backbone, some apple, getting a good amount of nutmeg but the cinnamon is faint. The middle is dry and spicy. Bitter pecans come out on the finish making it pretty dry.
M - Medium wet body that does a 180 in the middle turning very dry. Lower carbonation.
It’s pretty spicy but it’s a spiced beer. It’s not a watered down afterthought like most of it’s kind. The nose tells a sweeter story than the flavor for sure. This would be a great beer around the holidays.

Poured from 12 fl oz bottle. Clear light orange-ish brown with very minimal off-white head. Cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, brown sugar, sweet potato, pumpkin aroma. Nice sweet pumpkin taste at the beginning that quickly dissipates leaving very lacking, watery finish. Perhaps it had been kept for too long.

Pours a rich amber with a bit of frothy white head. Lots of caramel on both the nose and in the flavor. Subtle hints of spice and almost pumpkiny.
Overall decent and a I would drink a few more

Brownish-orange with a white head. Aroma is ginger and nutmeg with some caramel malt. Flavor is similar. I get a lot of ginger as well as some cinnamon and nutmeg. Quite spicy. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottled. Poured fiery reddish-orange with a densely-packed beige head. The aroma picked up nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon over sweet caramel and a touch of molasses.. a bit too focused on the spicage, but I enjoyed them all. The flavor found bright cinnamon and nutmeg, and some sour notes over molasses.. a bit sour on the finish too.. this wasn’t that well balanced. Light-medium bodied with only an OK feel/flow.. meh.
