2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
There is definatly a strong pumkin flavor, a little bit of AllSpice/Nutmeg charecter, but I just couldn’t finish the bottle. Maybe I just don’t like pumkin beers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark orange color. With plenty of white head to follow. Sipping on this beer, is sweet yet spicy. Taste like a liquid pumpkin pie. Hints of cinnamon.. One of my favorite sesonals.

2.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle pour. Orange/Amber color, quickly dissipating thick, white head. Aroma of pumpkin, cloves, cinnamon. Flavor is non-existent, mostly cloves. A hint of pumpkin flavor at the finish. The Aroma is the best thing about this ale, but the flavor does not deliver.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A fairly thin beer, but intriguing pumpkin flavor. Also hints of winter time spices. Overall well balanced, with no overpowering flavors. Enjoyable but could be more.

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bitter smelling, loose head, opaque. Not impressed at all, actually disappointed. I’ve tasted less bitter ESB’s. No significant or nor dominant flavors, whatever is there is overpowered by the bitter water-down taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Happy Halloween! Thin head, even after a straight, quick pour. Aromas of spice and orange, plus the obvious. More spice than pumpkin flavor, and less body than a slice of punkin’ pie. Not bad, but it’s good for only one and only between Halloween and Thanksgiving....

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very light bodied, not sweet at all. A dry, nutmeg and cinnamon-flavored nose. The taste here is almost entirely derived from the smell, it’s almost like drinking heavily scented seltzer water. Not quite what I was expecting.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A rather curious tasting ale that I picked up over the haloween season. Unfortunately its only worth is for kitschy purposes. It smelled and tasted mostly of nutmeg. That was good smell-wise, but not good taste-wise.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Incredibly tempting aroma. Great taste, with flourish of pumpkin, cinnamon and other spices that’s not too sweet. Surprisingly thirst-quenching. However, the palate is a little disappointing, fading away to simple ale too quickly. Still, a nice autumn change of pace.
