4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is the first time I saw this beer on the east coast so I had to try it. Pours a near clear orange with a defitite pumpkin aroma. Not as smooth a finish as pumking but still delicious.

Tap. Pure white head on a slightly hazy yellow orange. Nice not overloaded pumpkin pie spices, slight vanilla, cream, and nice aroma overall. Nice spiciness with cinammon, pie, nutmeg, small clove and integrated really well. Warming, tight carbonation and medium body. Nice

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Collins Pub. Pours dark orange with light body and thin off-white head. Aroma is nutmeg, cinnamon, and mild pumpkin. Big pumpkin, brown sugar, pumpkin spice, and nutmeg flavors. Nice bitter hops on the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. They seem to have ’de-tuned’ this beer in 2012 as it used to be 9.5% and is now listed at 8.1%. I know they moved production down to the Georgetown brewery, and the greatly improved availability of this is much appreciated... but I liked the old version a bit better. It was stronger, sweeter, more syrupy. Still, this is great - legit big pumpkin taste without being over the top.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Deli. Aroma is pumpkin and spice (all-spice and cinnamon?). Flavor is very pumpkin-forward and not too spicy/pie-ish. Delicious.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz. bottle. Pours clear orange. White head, no lacing. Aroma is all spice, microwave pizza? Flavor is... spice and disagreeable vegetable, barely any pumpkin until the end. Elysian has been the go-to pumpkin maker, but this beer is a fail.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I don’t know, a bad keg? Aroma had a nice nutmeg spice twing. Body was a bit thin, had an alcohol taste that was stronger then the pumpkin/ nutmeg/ gingerbread flavor that was secondary. I’ll have to try again, but very disappointed in what i got.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at Pizza Plant, looks like anIPA, copper orange pour. hefty bitterness in this, underlaying pumpkin beer qualities. lighter nutmeg, cinnamon etc. shows its 9.5% proudly, nice

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma- pumpkin, roasted notes, some vanilla, spices
Appearance- hazy sunset orange, nice head and lacing
Taste- roasted pumpkin seeds, spices, pumpkin meat, nice bittersweet finish
Palate- decent body, appropriate for the style
Overall- A different take on the pumpkin beer which focuses more on the pumpkin meat and seeds than the other aspects of the pumpkin. Very smooth and drinkable.
