Not a bad pumpkin beer, but the flavors did not do justice to the aroma. It tasted fine, but everything was very muted, and not as pronounced as I would have liked.

Thanks to Dave. Bland aroma, but decent flavor - malty, with some clove and allspice. Pretty mellow, with a dry finish. Good overall - could be a nice session brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ar: Sweet, toasted malt - pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and cinnamon stand out.
Ap: Orange, slightly hazy - small white head with low retention, leaves a thin ring and almost no covering of foam.
T: Malty-sweet up front with caramel and toasted notes - some light sweetness - cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove - low bitterness - mildly numbing spice lingers on the finish with malty backbone.
P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry.
Solid, sessionable pumpkin beer - nothing extraordinary or special about this example, but it is well-made and tasty.

Draft at TriBeCa tavern. Aroma isn't all that. And body is crystal clear like a window. But flavor is spot on. Like a light version of pumpking. Excellent.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Smell: The aroma is light overall. I get notes pumpkin pie spice standing out with a light touch of spicy/herbal hops.
Taste / Palate: I get mild pumpkin pie spice and light pie crust like maltiness. There is only a slight touch of hops in the finish. It is nicely balanced and fairly easy drinking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a lightly reddish amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of pumpkin spice, lots of clove, ginger, nutmeg, and light carmelly bread. Taste is much the same, a little heavy handed on the spices, especially the clove and nutmeg as there is a decent amount of spice hanging on your palate.
