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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours clear and deep orange - much like the bottle - with a small, wispy, white head. Good retention. The nose delivers all the right winter spices and I’m actually picking up a substantial measure of pumpkin meat in here – unfortunately, that’s a rarity for the style. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is nicely-balanced, malty and fairly spicy - not overdone or overbearing in any way. No pumpkin component here. Finishes lightly sweet, and then the pumpkin component finally makes another appearance. Better than expected.
