Well, it smells nice, I’ll give it that. Actually, that’s a little too dismissive - It’s really not bad, in the context of pumpkin beer. There is some depth and real beer character, as well. Nice citrusy hop bite cuts through the heavy spices.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome fall spices led by strong nutmeg. Ample malt backbone carries the spices to a lightly sweet but drying finish. This orange-hued beer is pretty, but lacks much head. Otherwise, a fantastic take on this Autumnal pleaser.

On tap at the District Rooftop Bar. Loads of sweet spice: light malty background with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Light, crisp body with moderately lingering spice. They put a lot of spice in here. Not a lot going on with the body, but it works. Just enough malt backbone to hold the pumpkin spices.

Bottle. Light orange color. Small head, no lace and lots of tiny bubbles. Aroma is typical pumpkin ale, not as strong. Taste, also typical pumpkin ale but kind of bland.

Poured from a cold bottle. Clear orange color, small fizzy white head. Smells off nutmeg and cinnamon. Watery hops flavor with a strong nutmeg addition, light bodied crisp beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Pumpkin. spice. cinnamon.
A: looks ok. Brownish amber color. Little head.
T: Tastes alright. A little weak. Pumpkin is hardly noticable. Lots of spice. Finish is dull.
P: A little dull. Thin. Not bad... too spicy.
Overall this is an ok beer. Pumpkin beers are always a little hit and miss... mostly miss. This is an alright easy drinking beer but nothing special.

Pint on tap. Nice pie spice aroma with light baked pumpkin. Taste is the same, with a nice balance between the spices and pumpkin and some leafy hop. Light-medium body has average carbonation and is well balanced. Well served pumpkin that you could easily have more than one of since its not over-spiced like so many are.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color with a white head. Aroma contains caramel, cinnamon, allspices. Think pumpkin flavored stuff. Very similar to an amber ale without the spice. Easy drinking and not overdone on spice.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small head on it. Nose has your typical pumpkin spice palate, though I find the aroma to be particularly intense. Taste is pretty well balanced, though the spices dominate any flavor. OK, but nothing special.
