3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml Bottle. It pours a clear medium burnt orange with a large (2-3 finger) off white fizzy head that quickly diminished until there was almost nothing left, but did have a tiny bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma was mild of a sweet bread malt and a light doughy yeast with notes of pumpkin, clove, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar.
The taste was lightly sweet and quite malty with a touch of brown sugar and nutmeg throughout. Then a slight bitterness crept in along with a bite of clove and a hint of vanilla, with the ending having a spicy cinnamon taste. The flavor was average in duration following the swallow, with a light spiciness lingering on the taste buds for a bit longer.
Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body with a watery yet slightly dry texture and a fizzy carbonation.
Overall this was a light and tasty Pumpkin Ale with a slightly sweet start, a spicy bitter middle and a nice cinnamon ending. Yep, it’s Fall alright...

750ml bomber from Market Liquor in Minot. Appearance: finger of tan head, head does not last, dark copper color, cloudy, little to no lacing. Aroma: pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, light caramel, slight yeasty bread notes, spicy hoppiness. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, medium-light bitter finish, thin to slightly sticky texture. Taste: sweet caramel and pumpkin, with spicy hops bitterness moving in smoothly to replace it, ending mildly bitter, with notes of spice on finish. Overall, very smooth, love the lightness for a pumpkin beer, good bitter balance for the sweetness.
