2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium orange with a brownish hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that was gone in a matter of seconds and had virtually no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was light to say the least of a light bread malt and a mild doughy yeast with hints of nutmeg, pumpkin and a little allspice.
It tasted extremely lightly sweet with a small presence of nutmeg and cinnamon at first then had a mild touch of pumpkin show up and became a little acetic (vinegary) at the end with the flavor only sticking around for a very short while.
Mouthfeel was very light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.
Overall a Pumpkin Ale that was super light in flavor, even so you could taste the pumpkin and spices. But it did have a mild vinegar presence at the finish which was unusual for this type of beer. I was also surprised to see it come in a twist off bottle.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Aromas of pumpkin pie, clove, cinnamon all present on the nose. Average carbonation but texture is a little too thin. Light to medium body and slightly sweet on the palate. Just OK.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/13/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of pumpkin, toasted biscuit, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and solid complexity of bready malt, pumpkin, and spice notes; with solid strength. Taste of pumpkin, toasted biscuit, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, toasted biscuit, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and solid robustness of bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is ok. A little watered down feeling in mouthfeel, but not bad. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid pumpkin ale. All around good balance and solid robustness/complexity of bready malt, pumpkin, and spice flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Awesome pumpkin beer. I'd buy this again. Pair it with some pumpkin ice cream. Pumpkin beer float.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly off white head. Smells like roasted pumpkin, light spice, light alcohol, and nutty malt. Tastes like musky, nutty malt, dry roasted pumpkin, toasted grains, and a light sweetness.

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."
