3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a, well, pumpkin color with a half inch head. The head audibly fizzes and quickly disappears completely. A counter clockwise spin is left when the effervescence is gone. What is left is mostly flat. Aroma is nutmeg as is the flavor. Some pumpkin can be found in both and lots of spice in the flavor.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This poured a darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was green vegetal pumpkin and very light spices. Flavor was much the same, very watery and not very flavorful of anything.

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.

( 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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Another pumpkin ale that is orange-brown. Small head. Nose is much spicier than the Post Road pumpkin ale. Almost a cider and cinnamon mixed with pumpkin pie. Strong clove taste as well. Very spicy taste. It seems stronger than the aroma. Dry finish. I think it finishes better than it tastes. Decent but too spicy for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An almost orangge pour with light off white head and lace. A huge spiced aroma reeks of a clovelike aroma. A spiced flavor that matches the aroma. It almost reminds me of pumpkin pie. Sweetness that hints of malt and an almost warm cinnamon finish. A bit foamy but palate is smooth and reasonalby full. A beer that is good flavorful and well spiced. I don’t think I could drink them all the time or if I could drink a lot of them.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange body with a small fizzy off-white head that vanished quickly. The nose is heavy on the spice with lots of cinnamon, some clove, nutmeg, and some nice, albeit light, caramelized pumpkin meat. The flavor is so heavy on the cinnamon that it almost burns the tongue, reminds me of red-hots candies. The clove emerges on the finish more than the other spices. There is some actual pumpkin flavor here, but I wish it were a bit more center stage. About on par with the majority of Pumpkin beers, but heavier on the cinnamon than most.

Well,....smells great at first whiff... no head whatsoever.....then it gets worse. cloudy urine-coloured, not really even orangish, any pumpkinivity this aspires to is lost in a tart, sour, acidic, hypercarbonated mess. poured it out after 3/4.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Odd aroma of burning rubber and dust, some pumpkin pie spiciness as well. Light amber color. Flavor is heavy nutmeg with light cinnamon. Good palate with a light, spicy aftertaste.
