3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is liquid pumpkin pie, complete with the whipped cream topping. Sharp nutmeg bites right into the aroma. The cinnamon and clove are more evident in the flavor. Turns a lot of people off, but I kinda like it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 12 oz. bottle. Poured mostly clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma was mostly the spices (cloves, et al.) with some malts present as well. The flavor was mostly spicey, with some semi sweet malt and perhaps pumpkin. This was my second attempt at a pumpkin beer and I’m thinking that its just not my style. The aroma of theis one was less offensive than the first.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer pours an orange color with a small white head. The aroma is grain and cinnamon, with a few other assorted spices thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of nutmeg and cinnamon notes, as well as a hint of cinnamon. Overall, the beer is lacking in the aroma and flavor and doesn’t stand up to the better pumpkin beers. Medium mouthfeel and high carbonation.

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.

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.

( 12oz bottle) Pours very clear light orange. Nose of nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon. Taste is dry, raw pumpkin, and cinnamon. Reminds of Christmas. Lingers with spices and nicely sweet.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I am assuming that the draft version of this beer is 10x better, but with that being said, the bottled version isnt all bad. Smells like a pumpkin pie. Looks reddish orange. Flavor is less pumpkin and more cinnamon and nutmeg. It is very easy to drink and I will probably get some more during the next holliday season just to be festive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one’s definitely the spiciest smelling pumpkin ale that I’ve had in a while. Nice looking orange (how appropriate) color with little head but plenty of carbonation. Plenty of fizz in the mouth (good?) with strong pumpkin & spicy tastes. Oddly a bit watery. Clean finish with a lingering cinnamon and nutmeg aftertaste. Fun drinking once a year.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
350 ml bottle from Bevmo. Hazy orange with a fizzy white head. Sweet malty pumpkin and spice aroma and taste, but the taste is oddly dull somehow.
