2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bright and murky soft orange glowing color with a small white head, but an overall attractive appearance. Nose is pumpkin-soap and potpourri, craft-store or bathroom store smells... perfumy oranges, ginger, apple, pumpkin and overripe peaches. Dear lord it tastes just downright horrible... like sucking on designer soap, the stuff that you’re not supposed to use as soap... waxy, syrupy and soapy, this is pretty god damn disgusting... end of rating.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange/copper colored, with a lot of pumpkin spice and some pumpkin puree in the aroma. The taste was spicy, with some finishing pumpkiny elements. Medium to light palate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Jose Pistolas, Philadelphia 17-11-08 Pours a hazy orange amber with no head and no apparent carbonation. The pumpkin is a little syrupy sweet, its good but possible a bit contrived there are spices aplenty, a real spicy nose and a real autumnal feel to it, its fine but just too, too spicy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange amber.Intensely spicey aroma and flavour, mostly cloves and mace. Caramel malt lends a sugary pumpkinish quality I suppose.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle pours golden/copper with a thick white head.
Aroma of light spices, cinnamon, aroma reminded more of a mix between orange/pumpkin.
Taste, malty, sweet. Maybe too sweet for a pumpkin ale.
Very weak taste of pumpkin. As with the Buffalo Bill’s Orange Blossom, you get this mix hops/yeast that gives you the impression of drinking a soapy soda.
I am still wondering where the pumpkin and the spices went? Just too weak, missing a good kick.

Pours orange with a thick beige head and a pumpkin aroma. There is a harsh pumpkin pie flavor with lots of spice. A bit overwhelming.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Possibly an old bottle. Pours with a fizzy-off-white head that goes away completely in about 30 seconds. Hazy amber bodey with some particles floating around. Pumpkin, cinnamon, clovee, nutmeg, and even mint in the potent aroma. Pretty bitter and even sour spicey taste. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel.

they did a great job with heavy use of pumpkin and spices to cover up what would be a very boring beer. low on "beer", high on spice. still thin, but if you like pumpkin and allspice, this one’s for you."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. Pretty full aroma of cinnamon and spices, pumpernickel, faint ginger bread, some pumpkin and mellow sweet dark fruitiness. The carbonation creates and initial punch of harshness that quickly rolls into pumpkin, cinnamon and all spice. By midway smooth mild pumpkin and maltiness give way to another wave of wintery spices and ginger bread. A little out of the can pumpkin feel and a bit heavy on the spices for my taste.
