3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper pour with decent head. Tastes and smells like a saison with hints of pumpkin and spice. Quite good. Doesn’t make the mistake that most pumpkin beers do. It goes easy on the spice and sweetness. It has room for more pumpkin flavor but is good the way it is.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold (aged) color, limpid, billowing tan head.
Light to medium body but assertive, simple taste, bitter and dry, average length. High carbonation gives the mouthfeel the needed balance, particularly needed if served at warmer temperatures.

Bottle from total wine Fort Lauderdale. Pours brown with a thin head. Slight note of pumpkin spice on the nose. Thin mouthfeel. Not much on the tongue. Boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Mild aroma, pumpkin and spices present but also some more traditional ale aromas from the hops such as floral light citrus. Pours amber thin tan lacing. Mild sweet taste. Light bitter and spice finish. Medium-thin body. Good ale that subtly mixes the season.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty aroma has a yeasty overtone and a hint of spice. Pours a clear, dark, bubbly amber with a thick pale wheat head. Malty flavor has a hint of pumpkin and more than a hint of hoppy bitterness. Smooth texture has about average body and not a whole lot of fizz. If not the best pumpkin ale, worthy of at least a try.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012
Location: Draft at HopsScotch, 10/5/12
Aroma: There’s a bunch of spices, particularly cinnamon, and some malts on the nose
Appearance: This one pours a clear dark orange color, with a small head and light lace
Flavor: It has a flavor similar to nose, it is light sweet, with spice, and some mild bitterness
Palate: It has a light body and it is a touch watery, with an average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
This one was a decent beer, it isn’t a top of style offering, but it isn’t terrible. Nothing about it really stands out.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden copper with a decent head that dies quickly. Aromas are autumn leaves with little else. Odd... Maybe a slight whiff of spice, but that could be my mind playing tricks. Flavor is an odd mix of a deep amber ale mixed with pie spices that seem to have something a little off with them. Not quite a medicinal edge, but it ain’t quite right...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a large foamy tan head that faded and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy and semi-sweet nutmeg and clove. The flavor was tangy and somewhat bitter nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. Long finish that turns dry with nutmeg and cinnamon lingering. Medium body. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear amber with medium lasting head. Aromas of pumpkin spices with nutmeg pronounced. Nutmeg and spice upfront with some bitter hops on the finish. Mouthfeel is light and clean. A decent pumpkin ale, but lacking character.
