Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (resin), with light notes of allspice/cinnamon and gasoline. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Sour, kinda fusel, and a dirty aftertaste. A drain pour and no foolin’.

shadey (1849) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Surprisingly amber pour with a thin ring of white cream around the edges of the glass. Aroma is caramel/toffee sweetness and floral hops. The caramel flavors are lightly toasted and a little nutty. The hops create a dry, clean finish. A very nice fall/harvest ale.

onceblind (3672) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Slightly hazy copperish orange with a thin rocky head. The nose has a lot of sweet malty nutmeg and cinnamon with a sweet semi-caramel earthy malt. Basically smells like a pumpkin ale, sans-pumpkin. The taste is initially dry and spicy with a dry earthy malt character that includes a bunch of nutmeg and a bit of cinnamon. Has a sorta sour twang.

Bookseeb (94) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Appearance is a hazy brown supporting a thin dissipating head leaving. Smell and taste has the pumpkin spice, but don’t know if there is any real pumpkin in there with a good dose of hops. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Seems to be more like a spice harvest IPA.

poisoneddwarf (1616) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - NOV 2, 2013
12 oz bottle. Aroma consists of nutmeg and cinnamon, as described, but it’s fairly muted compared to most spiced beers. Pours hazy amber with a one finger beige head with decent retention. Taste has all the spicy character you’d expect, but this is much more bitter than other similar beers. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body. I’m liking the bitterness in this. Different than your average pumpkin spice beer.
