3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best pumpkin beer available. By far. It's the only one worth your time. It reminds me of what an pumpkin Oktoberfest would taste like... Nothing unpleasant or fake tasting here. This is a pumpkin beer I would actually drink more than a 4 oz sample of... Good good from Delaware

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little better than your average pumpkin beer. Nice true pumpkin aroma. Light pumpkin orange color. Lighter than preferred palate. Good flavors with a more vegetable angle than spice. It was OK but there are better out there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very strong aroma of spice, pumpkin, and maltiness. Pours a nice orange with some foamy head that hangs around for a bit. Taste is a great balance of autumn spices and malty sweetness. There’s just a tiny bit of hoppiness to it, and a bit of alcohol. The palate is a little biting and a bit thin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice pumpkin beer that’s amber in color and holds a bit of lace. More spiced than pumpkin (like most) with nutmeg and cinnamon. A but sweet on the finish and the spices linger. Pretty solid pumpkin overall.

On tap at DaVinci’s in Roswell. Pumpkin flesh flavor, but not as heavy on the pumpkin spices as others in this category. Body was medium with little carbonation. Decent pumpkin beer, but I prefer more spice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an Oktoberfestish/ reddish orange. Aroma of nutmeg and a allspice/slight cinnamon.Some breadyness and caramel notes. Wouldn’t say its really the most pleasant aroma not near offensive either. Flavor is smooth,with a toffee caramel, spiced mix flavor, clove, and dry toasted caramel malt, has some orange coriander citrus in finish. Crisp finish dryness. Carbonic citrus bite. A little stronger astringent bitter(clove?) in the finish than the average pumkin ales, but a pretty above average pumpkin ale. Pretty drinkable for 7% but does have a bit of smooth richness. A bit heavier on the spice flavor than I like but maybe that could mellow out with age?. Could like this more possibly if it had more of a brown ale quality than a Oktoberfest as it seems to me, to it or possibly some smoked malts. Pumpkin beers can be brewed in all sorts of styles but this doesn’t remind me of a brown ale at all.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: white head with tiny bubbles.
Aroma; smells like the inside of a fresh pumpkin. Nice fall spice but smell of pumpkin flesh strong.
Palate: nice carbonation. More than I was expecting this helps the spice cut through the maltiness
Overall. One of my favorite fall beers great way to welcome in the cooler weather
