22 ounce. Batch No 2. Big carbonation. Light pumpkin taste. Not heavily spiced which is decent. Bit of a spritzer like quality.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Sander’s place in NYC. Pours slightly cloudy orange-amber with a fine white head. Some faint pumpkin and spice in the nose, with lightly toasted malts. Flavor is light to medium sweet, some light bread, mild spiciness, slight tang, light bitterness. Medium bodied with very lively. Alright balance in the finish, a bit of pumpkin character in the aftertaste, light leafy bitterness, light nutmeg, mildly sweet. I’d say this beer is a little bit past its prime, but the heart is still there. Even still, it’s just an OK beer.

Bottle/22oz - Pours a slightly cloudy golden orangish amber in color with a medium and tight white head that stuck around to produce a small amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild of bready yeasts, pumpkin pie spices and very slight of pumpkin itself. Flavor is pretty mild all around with pumpkin spices with just a hint of pumpkin fruit. Nice slightly bitter finish. I like the mild spicing along with the authentic pumpkin flavor. A very drinkable/sessionable beer...

Pumpkin Ale is Pumpkiny. Taste is lightly malty and nicely spiced with the usual pumpkin spices. The base beer is a little MEH! with some wierd bready malty notes that border on unpleasant. Still a good offering from a local brewery.

A terrific pumpkin ale, was surprised to see this rated a little low. the aroma and color are all exactly what i’d want for a pumpkin ale, the taste could be a little higher in abv, a little more kick, but still great.

Slight cinnamon spice aroma.... Nutmeg, pumpkin... Flavor is fairly light and watery, but notes of pumpkin and spices present... Not that strong of a pumpkin beer, but decent.... Probably would have added another 150 lbs of pumpkin to it....

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz. A nice change up from the high octane 22oz pumpkins. Pours a lighter orange hue, white fluffy head. The aromas are nice, spice, nutmeg, a little cinnamon, nothing over powering. Smooth across the palate, lighter fleshier flavors of pumpkin in the background, slight bitterness, spice is balanced. Really nice for the lower ABV.

Pours a slightly amber orange color with a pumpkin aroma and hints of spice. Mostly pumpkin flavor. Not over spiced at all. Very good beer!
