3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark orange/amber color.with a thick white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, and allspice. Tastes of all the ingredients listed on the description. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy with good carbonation. Overall this is in my top 5 as far as pumpkin beers go. Dogfish Head was on of the first to perfect pumpkin ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours cloudy orange brown with a smallish head, thin ringed retention, not much CO2 activity. Caramel malts, cinnamon, and nutmeg on the nose. Drinks with intense thick caramel malts up front, nicely spiced with strong notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, pumpkin, slightly fizzy, finishing malty and clean light bitter. Medium complexity, medium depth, good carry, good transitions, good drinkability. Super solid.

Pours clear and dark bronze colour with moderate head. Aroma has good pumpkin spice to it. Taste is mild and the pumpkin spice doesn’t come through fake or over-spiced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a clear burnt orange with a thin, off white head that shrinks leaving little to no lacing. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of malts. Taste is like pumpkin pie light. Cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and allspice are all there. There is a nice malty back as well. Mouthfeel is on the watery side. This is a decent, although somewhat bland and inoffensive pumpkin beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
by the last bottle of the 4-pack spread over 2 weeks I liked this less and less. I think I am out-growing this style. Drinkable brew but the spices are overdone for me

Nice orange color with small head. Nice spice level - not too much, just enough and some actual pumpkin taste to it. Not a huge fan of the style, but this is pretty decent stuff. Wife likes it giving it an extra thumb’s up.
