3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a nice amber hue with a quickly diminishing white head. Aroma a nice caramel malt base. Good notes from pumpkin and spices. Honey was mild. Flavor was nice and did have a great flavor from the pumpkin and the spices were present but a bit restrained, which was nice. Honey seemed lost. Finish was smooth and not too filling. Decent.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Not sure why I bother with spice beers anymore as I really hate over spiced beers. Give me pumpkins not the spices that go along with it. I guess I just keep hoping for that one beer, but should know better when the word Spiced is in the name. As advertised, a spiced harvest beer so I’ll give it to them there.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Chevy Chase Supermarket. Body is warm golden with thin tan head. Nose is sweet, nutmeg, oaky. Taste is pumpkin for sure, some sweet, malts, then gets plenty sour. Not my thing at all. Lots of pumpkin in the finish too. Booh.

A bit cloudy, and a bit over-fizzy. Nice tasting, just enough spiciness. Not bad.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light and watery beverage loaded with pumpkin spice, cinnamon, clove and other fall/Christmas flavoring. Bears little to no resemblance to beer, and even that aside is not worth the time.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Some spices in this make it a typical sugary pumpkin pie beer. Pours orange with OK head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Elements come together well if you are into this kind of thing. So the pumpkin season begins, already. Tasted this at the Giant by my place and needless to say I didn’t opt for a growler.
