3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Second to last bottle out of a case purchased at a rogue pub garage sale in Eugene Oregon, Pours a reddish brown color with a off white head with light lacing. Smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. Tastes the same as it smells with a balanced flavor. Mouthfeel is between medium and light and chewy with decent carbonation. Overall this is a great pumpkin ale. Rogue mixes all the ingredients together very well. My mom doesn’t like beer that much but she likes this if that says anything.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice surprise here from Rogue. May not need to write them off completely. Dark amber orangish pour with a tight off white head. Spicy aroma with notes of gourd, cinnamon, earthy malts, caramel and small bits of vanilla. Flavors were similar. Lightly spiced, slightly sweet, pumpkins and caramel. Tingly carbonation with lighter mouthfeel. This was light but drank nicely like a rich harvest ale should. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into signature shaker pint glass, 2012 bottling. Pours lightly hazy reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of caramel, pumpkin, pear, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, toast, brown sugar, clove, brown bread, and herbal hops. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of malt and spices. Taste of caramel, pumpkin, toast, ginger, pear, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, clove, brown bread, and herbal spiciness. Fair amount of spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, pumpkin, pear, toast, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, clove, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of flavors; with a nice malt/spiciness balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, slick, and foamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish, as expected of 5.6%. Overall this is a highly excellent pumpkin ale! Great balance and complexity of malt/spice flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable pumpkin beer offering.
