3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours very hazy dark amber with a foamy creamy beige head. Aroma is very pie spice - maybe some ginger? Near med body. There’s some malt, but it gets overwhelmed by the spices. Seems somewhat gingery. Goes slightly watery in the finish. Think it could use a higher ABV. I don’t know what it is now, but I think an increase would smooth it out. Pretty good pumpkin ale. There are many less tasty.

Amber pour, small tan head that disappeared very quickly. Light pumpkin, some spice, mild hops and bready aromas. Flavor is a great balance of pumpkin, spice, hops and yeasty/malty goodness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. hazed medium-dark brown with a dark tan fine-bubbled foamy head. rich, fleshy, meaty, slightly-roasted pumpkin nose, a bit like squash soup in it’s heartiness and creaminess thanks to the pacman yeast. intensely fresh and robust nose, and i’m actually very surprised i’m enjoying it this much, bringing back memories of the heralded selin’s grove pumpkin ale. soft and creamy texture, medium body, light to medium sweetness (caramel sweetness, which is oddly out of place and seems to overtake the pumpkin character). spiced, peppery finish seems alcoholic. enjoyable silken texture but the spiciness and caramel / maple syrup sweetness are both a bit excessive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a slightly hazed burnt orange color with a white head. Strong spice aroma, as expected. Heavy on the nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice notes. Sweet bread malt with a bit of toffee and biscuit. The flavor is dominated by the spices. A touch of vanilla to go along with the nutmeg and all spice. A nice malty sweetness and good body to go with it. I quite enjoyed this.
