3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is the beer that got me into craft beer. I have been away in Afghanistan for almost a year and missed the fall season of beer last year. I was super pumped to get a 4 pack of this and try it out. Let me tell you what though, after having a hundred or so craft beers this one just doenst hold up. It is still a decent beer but not like what I first experienced after getting off the BMC wagon. Nice amber color, spices in the aroma. Nice brown ale with some underlying pumpkin flavors. Much better than most pumpkin ales, but I think Pumpking is the KING!

This is a pumpkin beer. I don't like pumpkin beers. This pumpkin beer is okay because it isn't overpowered by cinnamon & sugar like a pumpkin pie. There are some hops and a cool malt profile in this pumpkin beer. In the realm of pumpkin beers, this is solid.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a darker orange, lacy head with lots of carbonation. Aroma is malt with slight pumpkin. Pumpkin spice flavor with a malt and pumpkin back. Noticeable alcohol aftertaste and relatively clean mouthfeel.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my favorite pumpkin beers. Heavy in spices and pumpkin tastes. It is perfect for fall when the weather gets colder and you need Dogfish Head to bring the flavor.

On tap at The Hopping Pig in San Diego. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma is slight pumpkin and slight malt. Nutmeg also. No pumpkin pie sweetness. Fairly dry. Ok but not my favorite in the style.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft poured in pint glass. Aroma was a little lacking, no head. Tastes light a "light" pumpkin beer. Overall, for a seasonal, I’d recommend.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Well-balanced spice aroma, amber color, pleasing bitterness along with a complex but, again, balanced spice palette. Definitely NOT pumpkin pie filling in a bottle, this is a good representative for this seasonal staple.
