3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At the brewpub for $3 pints, and started out with this one. My first (and probably only) Pumpkin Ale of the season. Came out a deep dark orange, with a nice frothy cap. The nose is sweet with pumkin spice, nutmeg, cinnamon - not surprising. Slick feel. Sweet pumpkin, that isnít as artificial-tasting as I remember. The pumpkin is also a little more subtle, but in its place there is an overwhelming spice profile, that isnít all that refreshing. All-in-all though, itís not a bad autumn drink, but I couldnít see myself having any more than 1 of these at a time, or even more than 1 in a season for that matter.

Just what you expect from a pumpkin ale. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. Pumpkin. Might be served in a glass with sugar on the rim.

Bottle. Pours light clear amber medium tan head. Nose is full of spices with clove, pumpkin, and nutmeg. Medium sweet taste. Medium-light body, dry spiced finish, thin texture. Ok overall.

12 oz. bottle. Pours ruby brown, with a thin head. The aroma is pumpkin and yams, brown sugar, cloves, and some light cinnamon. Very sweet, some mellow vegetal and spice notes. Medium body, sticky, and a little warming. This is a nice, understated pumpkin beer. Mellow spice and an easy flavor.

Fairly light for a pumpkin beer but this is good enough for the style. Some weird aftertastes

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overwhelming spice and underwhelming pumpkin. Might have been more tolerable a bit warmer on a cool fall evening- just doesnít taste like spring. Pours a decent copper color with a small head (actually looked great). Nose is all spice. Too much nutmeg and a bit sharp with the ginger. A bit of an unpleasant sweetness as well. I prefer to have beer with a slice of pumpkin pie- rather than the two -in-one package as offered here.

Ugly BMC-esque gold pour w/zero heard or lace. Smells ok, some spices, pumpkins in the background. Tastes off. A kiss of tartness (wtf?!) then turns watery. Julie nailed it: tastes like a pumpkin Kolsch.
Wtf Foothills, I expect better from you guys.

Bottle. Nice fall color, orange-amber, with a thin head. The pumpkin aroma gets to the olfactory glands as soon as the capís off the bottle. The beer drinks with a nice balanced delivery of some gourd, cinnamon and spice. Decent. (#5322, 11/10/2013)
