UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 Finally enjoying Rogue’s Pumpkin Patch Ale on tap @ Tadg’s. 5.6% A beautiful clear amber with a pumpkin pie spice aroma. Served in a lager glass. Nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, quite tasty & not overdone. The glass may be toning it down. One of the best pumpkin beers this year, neck & neck with the Uinta pumpkin which may have a bit more pumpkin flavor...

Translucent amber with a bit of white head. Aroma and taste are exactly as expected from a stand gravity pumpkin, and perhaps a little richer. Gingery spicy taste into the finish, and recedes in to pumpkiny earthiness. $3 rogue garage sale

Bottle: Poured a caramel color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of caramelized malt with some well-balanced notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and cloves. Taste is also a well-balanced mxi between some pumpkin notes with some cinnamon and some cloves with some caramelized malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Really enjoyable pumpkin beer.

A pretty good pumpkin ale despite the low abv. Sweet spice notes. Like a pumpkin pie you would find in a bakery. Foamy head. I sense the nutmeg, sugar and cinnamon more prominent than other brews I have tried. Smooth washdown. Less drier than I anticpated. It’s like a brew you enjoy as an appetizer or a nightcap. Nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big bottle- pours clear burnt orange, minimal tan head. Nose is lots of spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, mild citrus and then pumpkin vegetal notes and some bread malts. Expected more spice on the tongue but the vegetal pumpkin notes come through. Thinnish with not much hop bitterness and some sweetness but the spices fade quite a bit for what the nose suggests. Drinkable pumpkin beer but the body is lacking.
