3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from TheCheeseMan. Thanks Daniel! It pours a clear brownish gold with a small head. The nose is perfumed with notes of pumpkin spice, vanilla, and cinnamon. The flavor has an aggressive bitterness. Lots of floral and spice notes, lower sweetness than you typically find in the style. It reminds me of a cross between Old Spice and pumpkin pie spice. I didn’t really get any pumpkin out of this one. Medium to full body with fairly aggressive carbonation and a lingering bitterness. Good, but I will still take my Williamsburg.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I keep on soldiering through these pumpkin beers, and surprise: this one is not half bad. Amber/orange brew with a white head. Aromas of cinnamon, and nutmeg. Tastes of fresh nutmeg/cinnamon, mixed spices, and some caramel. There is a strange minty taste present as well. Sweet nutmeg finish lingers for too long. A bit nutty too. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Deep amber, thick, moderate frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Strong clove and allspice aroma.   Same on the tongue.   Spices aren’t too bright, but the clove is pretty hefty.   The body is also pretty hefty, feels a bit thick.   Backside has some soft cinnamon and nutmeg.   Aside from the spices, this beer feels and tastes thick.   Strong yet dull spices on the finish.   Tiz clean, nice flavor, good body, but not very bright.   Thanks to Diego and Jason for sending me a bottle!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an orange amber color with a white foam head. Aroma of caramel, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sweet caramel cinnamon taste with some nutmeg. Nice bitter layer for balance. A nuttiness, perhaps some toffee. Very enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 from Craft Ale House. Pours pumpkin orangy with 1-finger white head. Nose is pumpkin, some pumpkin spice, and earthy malty notes. Tastes sweet, pumpkiny, with a syrupy smooth mid-palate, and a very spicy finish. Perhaps the spiciest pumpkin ale I’ve had, and it worked well for me.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a medium to light brown with a lot of orange as well. Nose is bready with hints of home made hard candy & spices. First sip is very smooth with right balance of brown malt and spices, not overpowering. Finish is nice with pumpkin pie flavors. I am not a fan of pumpkin beers, but this good.
