2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the 2009 Great Pumpkin Festival, Cambridge Brewing Company, Cambridge MA on 31 October 2009 at 4.5%. Quite pale gold colour. Not much evident "pumpkin" character. Not a huge amount of ginger in the aroma either. More of a bready/cereal character reminiscent of muesli. Ginger is more apparent in the flavour but still quite subtle. Slightly metallic, flinty (but soft) mouthfeel. Overall perfectly acceptable but lacking in excitement.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Kurtkeller 001: Pumpkin-tastic 01 on 11/22/2013. Pours a hazed yellow color with a medium thick bubbly white head that evaporates gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of ginger and malt. Light-bodied with lots of ginger flavor up front, along with some toasty malt and hops behind it. The finish is akin to ginger ale with a spiced aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle:   Orange hued straw, slight haze, moderate white head, decent lacing.   Oh boy, I can already tell too much Ginger was used.   Oh yah, pretty much nothing but Ginger in this one.   Slight grassiness on the backside, but gotta wade through a lot of Ginger before you get there.   Pumpkin, what pumpkin?   As it warms I get more and more of a Ginger Pledge like aroma, or maybe even one of those fancy urinal cakes.   This one does not work for me.   If you like Ginger, or maybe even Wasabi, you will probably like this one.   Ugh...

Draft at Elysian Great Pumpkin Beer Fest (GPBF) 08. Crystal clear medium gold with a light white head. Nutty, earthy, leafy nose. Light watery body with some fizz. Nut, earth, and leaf return on the mid-palate. Mild finish. A shockingly good little beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grassy and bready nose with a touch of spice. Golden bright beer with a thin fluffy head. Nice pils flavors of bread, grass, lemon. Spice is light and secondary in this one. Light, refreshing, and really pleasant actually.

Draft at Blind Tiger, with Reuben & Jen, as part of their pumpkin Promo. 15 lines i believe. All sampled as 5oz pours. Tastes like a light fruity pilsner with enough pumpkin coming through to enjoy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Really didn’t know what to think of this one, but I liked it. Pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very heavy on the ginger with some pilsner malt thrown in. The ginger also dominates the flavor. There is a bit of pilsner malt. I get a slight amount of bitterness from the hops but no real hop flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice.
