3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at HalfTime. Poured a clear amber with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of some light grassy hops, sweet cinnamon, molasses, and a touch of nutmeg. Taste is dry and slightly tart with flavors of boiled vegetables and light cinnamon, leading to a slightly dry finish. Virtually no pumpkin in this. A boring, rather flavorless pumpkin ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Halftime. First pour out of the keg. Pours with a small head. Color is copper, completely murky with almost no clarity. Aroma is present, caramel sweetness with wheat-like fishiness and a bit of spice. Taste is nicely sweet, losses that fishy wheat and really doesnt give off any pumpkin. Weird, definitely sweet with a bit of a toasty character, not high on spice.
