3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice nutty roasted pumpkin aroma. Taste reminds me of a pumpkin brown ale maybe? The pumpkin blends well with the malt flavors. One of the best I’ve had.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium amber color with a finger of foam. The nose is subtle pumpkin pie with a touch of earthy spice and toasted marshmallow. The palate follows the nose with a more restrained pumpkin presence and just a touch of spice. Nice little bitterness cleans up the palate on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours a medium orange/brown with a large light tan head that quickly dissipates. There is a medium pumpkin flavor and a mild pie spice, it is lightly sweet and quite bitter. I think it is over carbonated!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Urge. Pours a reddish amber with a thin tan head which quickly fades to nothing. Aroma is pumpkin meat, pie spices, toasted sweet malts, caramel, and some light brown sugar. Taste is a little muted compared to the aroma and has some light soda water notes. Has a medium-light body with a watery mouthfeel and a semi dry, mostly sweet, medium, slightly fizzy finish. Overall, a decent pumpkin ale that as too thin of a body a is probably too over carbonated has several other raters have pointed out.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Below average pumpkin ale sadly. Spice and pumpkin flavor are there, but they compete with one another instead of cooperating. No sweetness, and the base beer is thin. Disappointed. C+/B-

Bottle (and a cool one). Pours a dark orange-amber, little evident head. Not a whole heck of a lot of evident aroma coming off this either, but IMHO that’s an OK thing, ’cause sometimes gourd beers can be over the top. This drinks with a very well mellowed and integrated pumpkin character inside an easy-drinking ale. Smooth and quaffable all the way, this has just the right kiss of squash and cinnamon.
