4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an orange amber with a thin beige head. Aromas common to a pumpkin pie--cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. The clove in particular stands out. The ginger comes through in the taste and the pumpkin lingers.

Pours a mahogany brown. Aroma is mildly spicy, . The flavor reminds me a lot of a pumpkin bread or muffin. It’s medium bodied, malty with a lot of pumpkin and nutmeg. Has a very definite fall holiday feel to it and is the best pumpkin beer I’ve tried thus far.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one is different than most of the style in that the aroma is mostly malt and bread. It pours amber with a small head. The flavor is very nice with the pumpkin being dominate. The pumpkin pie spices remain in the background. Nice finish. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber, small head, good lace. Nose is intense pumpkin, yeast, spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice). Taste is big pumpkin, slight sour acidic finish, with a noticeable spice that coats the mouth. Light body, normal carbonation. Overall a delicious pumpkin ale, not as spicy as I’d like, but overall, fun.

Shared by HogTownHarry with Blankboy and I. Appearance: Golden orange with a large off white head and small floaties in the body. Aroma: Well - pumpkin, some spices (cinnamon, pepper, cloves), yeast and some hops, delicious. Flavour: Nice light pumpkin, spice, some menthol, nutmeg, malt, just a lovely mild pumpkin beer. Delicious.

Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy and garthicusw. Deep amber with plenty of suspended floaties, average white head (this bottle might be a year and a half old....). Spicy aroma, no alcohol, pleasant vegetal pumpkin, sweet and yeasty - definitely fall spices. Taste- sweet, spicy, a nice vegetable tang. Average body, decent carbonation, a bit sharp in the finish .... a nice, easy-drinking pumpkin beer, more about the spice than the veg, but solid.

Hazy orange color. Pumpkin in the nose and taste--like a big glass of pumpkin pie. Spicy end. Some hops come through, which was a pleasant surprise. Fully body and very good pumpkin beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Maltajo for the bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a thick tan head. Aroma is pumpkin pie, and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is smooth and malty with touches of the pumpkin and spices, but not overdone and very easy to drink. Good version of the style.
