3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Crazy Mountain. Pours clear orange with white head. Aroma is very baking spice, pumpkin, cinnamon. Taste medium bodied, not over spiced but the spice is still there, the pumpkin comes through amazingly well, low carbonation. Overall, pretty good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lightly hazy brilliant copper with not much head. Nose had typical allspice and clove notes of pumpkin pie spices, with a bit of ginger. Big synthetic pumpkin flavor with allspice and ginger taking the lead on this one, with a little cinnamon coming in later with some more "pumpkin" tones after. Meh. Standard pumpkin ale as far as I can tell.

Tap at happy gnome. Pint glass. Dark clear gold with small head. Heavy spice aroma of clove nutmeg and allspice. Taste is similar spice flavor as aroma with a slight bit of pumpkin creaminess. Medium body. Pretty well balanced. Good pumpkin attempt.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap pour at Happy Gnome. Pint glass. Plenty of spice on the nose and the pumpkin makes its presence known. The taste actually comes across as a better balance of spice and pumpkin. Definitely not an overly spiced option. The closest approximation of actual pumpkin pie I’ve tried. Still a little thin on the palette which is typically the problem with pumpkin ales. It’s a solid choice during this time of year.

Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought big pumpkin pie spice, cookie, graham cracker, hints of big pumpkin in there as well with a touch of caramel, toffee, vanilla, and marshmallow. Taste is a bit more subdued, slight cinnamon, clove, into pumpkin, slight cookie, marshmallow sweetness into caramel, toffee, finishing fairly sweet, slightly spicy.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber with a creamy white head. Light pie spice aroma. Med body. Flavor is sharpish pie spice, and I think I actually get some squash. Nice version.
