3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy appearance. Orange in color. No head once so ever. Lacing coats the side of the glass. Aroma is very minimal. Palate is watery. Medium-bodied beer with medium carbonation. The finish is very strong like hard alcohol. Pretty good for an imperial but wish it was creamier.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Bottle. Slightly unclear orange with a small bright white head. Aroma is sweet pumpkin, licorice, with a nice level of spice, mostly clove. Has that nice toasty pie crust character, similar to pumking, perhaps from the roasted pumpkin seeds. Taste is more subdued then the aroma, with more spice and toastiness, and less sweet pumpkin. Some mild bitterness and a little alcohol. Finish is lightly bitter and full of spice. Medium body, soft carbonation. Solid.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep orange color, okay head, good lacing. Nose is pumpkin pie and malt. Taste is something like pumpkin pie or pumpkin soda. I’m not a pumpkin beer fan but this one wasn’t too bad.
