3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, shared by caterwaul. Clear yellow orange color. Thin white head. Good splotches of lace. Some definite tea-like aromas in the nose, along with some of the expected pumpkin spice aromas. Pretty big and interesting nose. Lighter body. Smooth, crisp, lightly creamy carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Smooth, easy-drinking. Very nice, unique combination of spices, very tasty. Not so pumpkiny, but the spices here used are very tasty. Moderate sweet, light bitter taste. Very solid, tasty, interesting unique spice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a light golden/orange color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and thereís a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like pumpkin (or should I say Indian(a)) spices, pumpkin, and some sweet malt. I think the taste is just like the aroma, itís all pumpkin, pumpkin spices and sweet malt. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick, smooth and easy to drink. I liked this pumpkin ale, I wouldnít mind buying some more the next time I come across it. $10.99 a 6-pack.

Draft to pint. Looks solid; a completely transparent gold with foamy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells odd; a strange mix of hops, pumpkin, and spices. Tastes like it smells with a pale malt backbone. Average on the palate. Not my thing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wasnít expecting much based on the rating. This was definitely a pleasant suprise. Extra from olr...Thanks, Omar!
Gusher of a pour. Head becomes pillowy with tons of lacing. Clear orange golden. Pumpkin spice nose and some white wine tartness on the nose. Zippy with some pumpkin flesh and some earthy pumpkin spice, but predominantly a very tart green apple malic finish. This could be infected, but if it is itís in a good way. Sour heads I know would love this. Not acetic at all. Hmmm...Iím going to rate this based on the assumption itís suppossed to be this way, just cause Iím digging it. My kind of pumpkin beer...not sweet and not overspiced. Proceed with caution.

Had this on tap at the East Nashville Beer Festival. Since this is their fall beer, Iím not sure how fresh it is. The pumpkin pie aroma is certainly the highlight of the experience. I smell cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, all in a very creamy mix.The creamy nature continues into the flavor and mouthfeel. The pumpkin pie spice blends with a little alcohol hit in the finish. Not as sicky spicy as some but I didnít appreciate the noticeable alcohol for a beer that is only 5.7%.

Woah, pour this one slow friends! Poured about 4 oz in my pint glass and the head came right up to the top! Big big orange and spicy nose. Flavorful with a nice balance of pumpkin, spice and hops. Quite good, though over carbonated!

12 ounce bottle courtesy of queenholly. I was in Indianapolis last year and didnít get a chance to get by Flat 12, so Iím glad to try this. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a huge foamy off-white head. It seemed like it was on the verge of being a gusher. Nice aroma, sweet and toasted pumpkin notes with pumpkin spice, pumpkin seed and a faint touch of bitterness. The taste is big pumpkin spice, some toasted notes and a spicy finish. Medium bodied, lingering spice and very high carbonation. Overcarbonated, but still nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden body with a frothy white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of all spice, cinnamon, pumpkin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Plenty of pumpkin spicing in the taste, especially nutmeg, all spice and cinnamon. Would have enjoyed more with the body dialed up and the spice dialed down. One was enough.
