3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice caramel color body with an off white head that had mild retention. Aroma had a nice sweet malt presence upfront. Beer seemed to have more of a natural pumpkin aroma and flavor than most other pumpkin beers I have had. There were spice notes and sweetness. Pumpkins gave it a bitterness that was not over powering. Moderate palate. Good beer.

$11.29 Bomber Bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO.
The big orange bottle pours a clear light brown with a beige frothy head. Smells of heavy pumpkin and light spice. Taste: tangy, malty pumpkin ale with a decent amount of spice. Not enough spice, IMO. Good, but not worth the price.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with a nice pumpkin aroma. Taste is fresh with a noticeable but not overwhelming taste of pumpkins. If you like pumpkin ales make sure to try this one out. Highly recommended.

On tap @ Bent Elbow - taps a deep amber with a small rocky cap. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is herbaceous with REAL pumpkin notes over some floral hopping. Taste is of a very solid, medium bodied amber ale with caramel notes and creamy pumpkin melding with earthy-bittering hops - long finish with a hop kiss in the conclusion. An unpretentious pumpkin ale which does not assail the palate with an obnoxious pumkin pie spice overkill.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-brown body with a dense yellowish foam head. Vegetal aroma of pumpkin and spices with light hops and brown sugar. Taste is similar, although the spices are bit more subdued and the hops a more prominent. Smooth on the palate with a light carbonation. Somewhat watery with a weak finish.

Tap at Tadg’s. Cloudy, dark brown, fine head. A bit murky. Spicy nose, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin. Very spicy, sweet, pumpkin flavor. A bit much, but nice for one. Decent body.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy brown orange pour with a thin amount of foam on top. Wasn’t expecting much, but this is one smooth sipper. Pumpkin is definitely present, but without the over the top sweetness. Medium bodied. Finishes with a heavy dose of pumpkin pie spice. This shit is delicious, probably the closest beer I’ve found to pumpkin pie without being a cloying mess. Will purchase again. Don’t spill it though, this shit is sticky.

This a great pumpkin beer that actually taste like pumpkin and not just pie spices. Dark amber color with a small white to off white head. Aroma is earthy,spice and yeast. Not a over powering pumpkin beer one you could drink 3 or 4 glasses of with out killing your palate.
