3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a quickly dissipating fluffy white head. Subtle aroma of cinnamon, pumpkin, cloves and a hint of nutmeg. Kind of a muted flavour; as has been mentioned by others, certainly not a smack-you-about-the-face-with-pumpkin-pie flavour. Light and crisp and moderate carbonation. Pretty solid.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy deep golden pour with an average off-white head that leaves a little lace. Hmm...less pumpkin pie in the face than others of the style. Has a more gingerbread with pumpkin nose. Quite the same on the palate. Surprisingly drinkable for the style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a translucent light copper with a one finger off-white head that fades to a film.
Aroma is of pumpkin pie. Pumpkin, sugar, and cinnamon.
Taste is a touch bitter with a slight spiced finish.
Medium body and with a low to medium, bubbly carbonation.
Clean mouth feel. Not overly sugary or overdone. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2013/09/09 - Pours a translucent, burnt orange colour with a frothy, off white head that lingers and laces nicely. Aroma is caramel, corn, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and pumpkin. Taste is caramel malts up front with a pumpkin spiced, slightly bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with medium carbonation and a drying finish. An ok pumpkin. Nothing exceptional.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 mL bottle. Pours a light orange with a frothy head. Aroma is mostly nutmeg and pumpkin. Dry and light bodied with medium high carbonation. Seemingly thin with alternating vegetable and spice notes with a rather hoppy finish. Not bad, but not to my taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours unclear golden with a nice white head, decent retention and lacing. fruity and almost belgian fruity malts, tender, ripened and juicy gourds and squashes, some oranges, light pine notes, nice blend of spices - carefully selected and thankfully shy, hint of sweetness. average to soft carbonation, light to medium body - oily, nice citrusy, lightly piney finish. probably the most balanced pumpkin ale i’ve tasted so far. enjoyed it - surprisingly.

Pours a clear orange color with a medium off white head. Aroma has seasonal spices. Flavor has nice layers of spice, doughy malt...graham, and pumpkin...well done! Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is spicy and bitters slightly. Nice pumpkin beer!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is of pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger and corn (??). The taste is slightly malty, with some squash, a moderate hop finish and thin body. The balance is toward the hops and not really my thing.
