3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear (first glass) to slightly hazy (second glass) deep gold with a short white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. Nose is somewhat earthy pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. Taste follows suit, with pale malt sweetness and a little more spice on the finish (allspice? vanilla?). Light to medium body, somewhat watery, initial prickly carbonation drops back quickly, and a mildly bitter finish.
Well, Iíve had worse pumpkin ale. At least this one actually smells and tastes like pumpkin - especially the second glass, when the lees came into play. Almost pumpkin pie flavoured. Itíll do.

Orange amber colour. Aroma is typical spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. Pretty refreshing, not too much spice in the taste. Aftertaste is actually pleasantly spicy. Overal ok

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Quite solid and good, if nondeScript. Nice spice notes as expected, and in abundance. Only thing lacking is a distinguishing characteristic to separate this from other fine pumpkin beers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Sweet Christmas spices. Clear gold with a rich white head. Spice is very much held in check. Pale malts come through and a pleasant sweetness. Smell is deceptively strong, but overall well balanced.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sep 2012 brewing, opened Jan 2013. Orange colour, some white head, lots of floaties and carbonation. Strong pumpkin and spice aromas, pie filling. Bit of tartness in the taste. Body was a bit watery. Would feel waterlogged after a whole bottle. A bit safe and bland, but a good balance of flavours.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fairly bland copper pour. Rich pumpkin and vegetable aroma. Hint of sugar. Some spice compliments as well. Sticky finish. Iím not getting a lot of "beer" character here - minimal hop or malt presence. But quite drinkable and compliments a meal nicely.
