Aroma has some bread and pumpkin notes, pours a golden amber hue with a minimal head. Taste is warm and malty with a hint of pumpkin and allspice. Not too sweet, and the pumpkin is a nice addition, not overpowering. It has a light body that makes it very drinkable.

Good Pumpkin Ale. Had this on draft. Probably would have tasted better with some fall spices ie. Cinnamon, Clove, etc.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded quickly to a thin ring. The nose is rather spicy with some cinnamon, nutmeg, just a little pumpkin. Smells like itís going to be a bit sweet, a fairly heavy caramel note. The flavor is just about as spicy, so much so that it burns the tongue with the cinnamon. Itís tempered a bit by the sweetness in the middle, but the finish really plays up the spice. Medium bodied and a bit clingy with fizzy carbonation. Meh, itís about on par with most middle of the road pumpkin beers.

This is a pumpkin beer that I (and others, from who Iíve talked to) will anticipate being released every year. The pumpkin is done perfectly and the beer itself is a perfect combination of spicy and sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (12 oz) at home. 2014, so 1 year old. Clear orangey golden with a small persistent white ring of foam leaving little lacing. Aroma is of nutmeg, brown sugar cinnamon and rotten notes. Taste is slightly sweet, but mostly overly spicy and quite a bit cloying because of that. Brown sugar and nutmeg forward. Not much else is showing up. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. A bit oily. Cinnamon and nutmeg finish. Another swilly Pumpkin beer.

This is a very good pumpkin beer. I like that it isn't too sweet or overpoweringly pumpkin.
