3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap, brewpub. Pours a clear dark gold to orange body with minimal to no head. Sweet nose, mostly cinnamon and nutmeg, caramel malt, and a lighter amount of pumpkin meat. The flavor is very heavily spiced, tons of cinnamon and nutmeg, some ginger on the back end. Not a whole lot of pumpkin, but a good bit of sweetness. A touch clingy and sticky with moderate fizzy carbonation. Yer average Pumpkin Ale, no flaws though.

Slightly hazed orange pour with a tight white head. The nose is lightly spicy with a soft nutmeg/clove over a little bit of pumpkin flesh flavour. A soft touch of wheaty flavour on the back. Soft malt with a distinct Maris Otter biscuity base underneath. Pretty lovely stuff really.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Deep Ellum, Boston, Mass last October. An amber coloured pour with a smallish white head on top. Slight pumpkin aroma. Tastes malty, slight pumpkin, thin and lacking complexity. Barman recommended this but I was rather disappointed with it to be honest.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler thanks to bring. Really has an excellent appearance. Bright clear orangish-copper with a two-finger creamy white head that lasts, and good lacing. The aroma is rather subtle but nice, with pumpkin and spice. The flavor is also subtle, but hey, it’s 4.2% - ALMOST a session beer, but not quite. Don’t make that mistake or the British will have your head. Good sweet malt notes, pumpkins and spice. Very traditional style pumpkin ale with nothing overdone about it. Medium-light on the palate, fairly dry, with a good soft carbonation to it. Good subtle light pumpkin ale. I like what they did here. Very drinkable.

Not bad, pretty mild pumpkin flavors. Still not as good as the pumking beer I had. A bit fruiter than I would like. Not as great aftertaste.. But I am hungry. Not much smell and boring taste.

Draft at Washington Square Tavern. Pours a light golden color with a bright white head. Nose is light straw and grass, light pumpkin notes. Palate is medium bodied with a nice fizzy feel. Flavor is light grassy hops with some dirty malt notes but a clean finish. Pumpkin is present upon swallow and in the finish.
