Decent seasonal. I was expecting something more. The few beers I’ve had from this brewer were very good. But this fell a little short for me.
Worth a try.

Hazy brown with tan head. Aroma I cinnamon and cloves. Taste of pumpkin, caramel malt and spices (cinnamon allspice cloves ). Heavy on the spices but not bad (one is enough though).

Not my favorite pumpkin ale. FAR too much pumpkin in it for my taste, almost made it a bit too sweet for me.

More like gingerbread than a pumpkin beer. Kind of sweet. I’m finally dragged into the pumpkin beers here. Tap at Snallygaster.

Bottle. Really nice pumpkin spice aroma, not quite delivered in the flavour. Lighter body with a decent pumpkin and spice flavour. Not incredible.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Glass: Carton teku glass.
Appearance: Hazy amber body with a milky brightness through the light. The head is short and short lived, leaving a thin off-tan coating.
Aroma: The aroma is bright of graham cracker and cinnamon, with a dash of ginger. A slightly tart apple aroma backs this. Fragrant and enjoyable, mildly sweet.
Taste: The flavor is prominent with spices, nutmeg notably with ginger underlying it. Cinnamon is mild towards the end with an uncooked pumpkin and apple flavor. Like biting into a crisp red apple with some cinnamon and sugar on it. Not bad, but not pumpkin tasting to me, not in a huge way anyway. More like a mild apple pie ale.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: More of a cinnamon apple flavor throughout, not the most enjoyable taste but it smells nice and drinks okay. I’d recommend it, but not a six pack worth.

First pumpkin ale of the season! Sampled at Elysian Brewery in Capitol Hill in Seattle. Gorgeous orange look, little haze. Strong nutmeg aroma, overpowers anything subtler. Toasted dark coffee notes hit at the start, cinnamon and spices take over as sips progress.

Bottle served in a pint glass. Pours dark orange with minimal head. Nose is heavy with clove, cinnamon and other spices. Malty pumpkin attack. Medium body, average carbonation, and a spiced finish.
