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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent copper with good carbonation and off-white lacing. Smells and tastes alright; light and pumpkin spice with an average mouthfeel. More lagerish, so it doesn’t weigh you down (filtered?). Exceeded my expectations.

Bottle. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Pumpkin pie spice aroma, with cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor seems a bit off, with apple juice, cinnamon and other spices. Decent.

Sometimes pumpkin beers are good fro the flavour, sometimes because they don’t have flavour.. this is the latter .. Pours a murky orange brown .. light foam ,,no real sticky lacing .. muddles sweet maple and very light spice .. one of the better pumpkin brews i’ve had but ehh.. the best piece of meat the preist had was nun..

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Disappointing pumpkin ale considering how good the orange ale is. It’s all nutmeg and cinnamon with VERY subtle pumpkin.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2006 Bottle, blind rating (in a flight of three pumpkin beers).
Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, fully diminishing.
Body is clear light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with notes of clove, allspice, hint of pumpkin.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Clove-heavy aroma, and otherwise kind of flimsy, but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark orange pour with a quickly fading white head, not much lacing. Delicious spicy aroma - pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg perhaps. Same spiciness carries over to the flavor with a little bit of cloves in there as well. Mouthfeel is a tad thin and the spicy flavor fades near the end. Still not a bad novelty beer though.
