3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Poured a deep amber color with a larger sized tan head. Aromas of vanilla cream soda, pumpkins, and spices. Tastes of pumpkins, vanilla soda, and various spices. I think this bottle is a little old, but it is still holding up nicely and was pleasantly ’different’ from other pumpkin beers.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep amber, strong copper hues, moderate off-white head, fairly nice lacing.   Spicy nose, lots of pumpkin up front, pumpkin pie, with a soft nutmeg and cinnamon background.   Similar on the tongue, slightly mealy, malty, not too strong or too soft.   Lots of pumpkin like flavors, spices are a little neutral.   As it warms the spices come out a bit more, but they dont get any stronger on the tongue.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Lingering pumpkin pie like flavors.   Reminds me of the first time I had Pumpkin, yet more subtle.   Doesnt seem fake, seems like a good representation of the style.   Thanks Austin for the bottle!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks Mark for the bottle! Dark reddish brown pour with nice fluffy white head, dissipates pretty quickly however. Aroma brought nice notes of toasted pumpkin, slight cinnamon, ginger, hints of earth, grain, nice vanilla, cracker, nice smelling brew! Taste is a nice mix of pumpkin, vanilla, cracker, nice caramel, toffee notes in there as well with a slight ginger, cinnamon that balances instead of overtakes. This is some nicely done stuff, probably my favorite out of Bristol.

bottle. A dark brown color with an orangish hue to it. A subtly sweet aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, and vanilla. A nice thick mouthfeel with subtle earthy pumpkin, strong vanilla and mild nutmeg and other spices. A great beer for a worthy cause.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle from BeerandBlues2. Pours amber brown with lasting tan head. Nice pumpkin spice aroma, with vanilla and crust apparant. Lacking in the flavor of even some of the pumpkin pie character, but it doesn’t taste bad. Middle of the road on the palate as well. I’ll bump it a couple of point overall for the charitable aspect of this beer. If you see it, buy it. I imagine its for a good cause. Thanks Brad.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Had this beer on 2/17/2007. Aroma is a rich scent of vanilla, nutmeg and pumpkin, this may be the most interesting scent I have seen in a beer. Color is a deep amber with light carbonation and a tight head. Taste is light and spicy. Starting with a light body it goes down light and crisp. Finish comes on spicy then fades to a creamy nutmeg flavor that reminds me of eggnog. This is an amazing beer and by far the best pumpkin I have ever had.
