Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - OCT 30, 2011
On tap at Sublime Ale House. Dark brown pour, nearly black. Aroma: Spices, which I can’t really pick out, but it just smells spicy. Flavor: Weird. Can’t really pick up any pumpkin or Yam, but then again I don’t think it would be noticeable with all the other stuff going on. I don’t really see the point of this beer, but I drank half the pint and left the other half.

Blairgus (2415) - California, USA - NOV 3, 2011
3 nov 2011, bottle. Med nut brown, clear. Lemon lager with some pumpkin spice. Nothing appealing. Thin/med body and fizzy. Lemon pith, some pumpkin spice. Not very enjoyable.

A crystal clear brown. Little to no head. Smells if pumpkin spice. Watery with lots of pumpkin spice flavor.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2012
UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 From the 3/2012 3R6P tasting. +++Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with orange highlights and a small soapy beige head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was light piney hops, honey and wood. The flavor was bitter, dry and a bit medicinal with woody and earthy undertones. Medium length dry, woody and earthy finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

Dark ruby-brown color, small white head. Citrus, lime, spices and caramel in the nose. Medium-bodied. Flavor of ginger, caramel and crystal kind of malts. Short finish. Like a XMas beer. Too weird!

estover (49) - Valencia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2012
Not exactly my cup of tea but not bad. Slight malt up front with a dark hoppy finish. A tad thin in the middle. I think some of the additions to this could have been more up front making a WOW niche beer instead of a flavoried beer with an interesting label. It is an enjoyable beverage, one that has a place in a fall festival. This is one to keep in the cellar and bring out to freak people out.

ExpendableHero (728) - Florida, USA - APR 22, 2012
Dark copper beer with an off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin pie, and caramel sweetness. Tastes of muted pumpkin pie flavors, yams, prunes, caramel, and some earthy notes in the finish. A bit too cloyingly sweet for me. Unoffensive pumpkin flavors, but the high amounts of sugary sweetness made this one a bit tough to finish.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a medium size dark beige color head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of pumpkin and light spices is less powerful then expected. Taste is a mix between light pumpkin notes with light dry spices with light residual sugar finish. Body is a bit thin with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not the most interesting experiment with a lot of components falling into middle of the road category without enough complexity; malt backbone is also a bit too thin.

Barreras (849) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Pours a reddish brown mahogany color. Aroma of spiced herb, a slight odor of yams and pumpkins. Taste is a slight lemon zest mixed with a spice vegetable mix in the initial swallow. The taste disappears quickly then is refreshing after you’re done.
