Nice malty pumpkin and spice aroma. Flavors are even more pronounced with a mild sweetness. Not a significant hops presence. Pretty burnt orange color and a medium weight and smooth palate.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
16 oz can. Pours hazy orange amber with a medium creamy off white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is sweet pumpkin pie with a lot of spices - cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, etc.
The flavor is sweet vegetal pumpkin with very strong perfumey pumpkin spices. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, too much sweetness and spice.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint can. Good pumpkin pie aroma with pumpkin and nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and allspice. Pours orange colored with a nearly nonexistent white head with no retention or lacing. Starts with sweet pumpkin upfront as well as a bit honey sweetness as well. Finishes smooth with the aforementioned spices coming through and overtaking the other flavors, but not in a bad way. Excellent pumpkin that balances the pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavors nicely.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy copper with low beige head (diminishing to nothing). No lacing. Aroma is of spices, pumpkins, vegetables. Taste is of pumpkins, spices, sugar, some bitterness. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Light-medium carbonation. Overall: Ok for a pumpkin ale. Still, this is a pumpkin ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour from the can is clean, burnt orange in color with a white head that quickly dissipates. The Aroma is clove, cinnamon and nutmeg with a sweet pumpkin note in the back. For a Pumpkin the aroma and appearance are great. The taste is sweet at the start, then clearly pumpkin and spice. The finish still communicates pumpkin but has a slight bitter finish to complete the ale. Overall it is a good ’harvest’ showing, bringing the pumpkin to the forefront of the ale.
