3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Bulldog NE. Cloudy, slightly darker color than expected. Aroma is heavier on cinnamon than most in this style. Liking the smell a lot. Taste is spice-centric and coats the mouth well. Deeper flavor than most pumpkin beers. Ends well like a satisfying piece of pumpkin pie. Good one to try.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at happy gnome. 10oz pour. Dark copper with thick head that goes away quickly. Smells spicy with elements of apple cider and cinnamon, to go with the cloves and nutmeg. Nice mouthfeel. Taste is pumpkin spice, not apple. Full bodied, unlike some watered down pumpkin beer that has come out lately. Has a tinge of unpleasant dryness in the middle but recovers well. Very good.

Suprised by poor reviews. If you enjoy pumpkin beers, this one is solid. Nice spices and good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Step below pumpking but still worth a try

Tasting at brewery. Aroma is pumpkins, with cinnamon and other related spices. Taste is pumpkin pie as expected, but it’s pretty reserved. This leaves it feeling thin, but I personally prefer pumpkin flavor in a reserved dose like this. A good special occasion light autumn seasonal.

Dark Orange with a slightly Orange Head. The pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavors blend together nicely and comes off as subtle. My only complaint about this beer is that the palate is has a stronger-than-necessary carbonation threshold.

This is at least in the same ballpark as the great pumpkin beers like Pumking...
