3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amberish copper with a thin fading head. Nose is sweet and pumpkin-pie like with a flakey crust, cinnamon, a touch of clove and a hint of ginger. Flavor falls a bit short with just too much reliance on pumpkin pie spices and not enough pumpkin goo.,

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Socorro Springs. The color of pumpkin pie, burnt orange but clear. Apricot aroma signals having run through other line of fruit beer. The pumpkin and spice doesn’t come out. But they do in flavors. Thin. Nice pumpkin gourd meat. Not so spiced. Sweet. Even sugary. Pleasant enough but thin.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2005 tap-brewpub-now this is the best pumpkin ale i have ever had!!!! it smelled and tasted like pumpkin pie! excellent brew!
ReRate-october, 2004-I had this beer a few months ago and i must say that the body and flavors were less pronounced on the 2003 batch. thiner body and flavors were not as pumpkin-y. I droped the ratings down from 3.7-3.4.
