3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours amber orange colour with ample white head. Aromas of malts, pumpkin seed, and spices. Taste of sweet malt gives way to slightly bitter pumpkin seed finish. Notes of cinnamon and caramel as well. Overall a solid brew that balances well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange with an off white head. The nose is thin, but honey, cloves, vanilla, gingerbread come through. The taste has far less spice than I was expecting. Pepper, faint, caramel, and again gingerbread with a bitter spicy finish. Could use some sweetness to balance it out. Tastes a bit too "potpourri" for me.

bottle. Poured clear amber with a thin white head. Pumpkin pie spiced aroma. The mouthfeel is crisp, peppery, but lighter than I expected. Flavours of clove, allspice, banana, kinda reminds of a Belgian whitbier except I enjoyed this alot. Finishes peppery and dry, lingering aftertaste

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer came in a 650mL bottle. Bottle is dark brown with halloween pumpkin on the front. This is a seasonal beer for Autumn. When poured into a pint glass, Colour is a cloudy amber at a coppery tone. The aroma is of cinnamon, five spice. The taste of pumpkin is mild with strong flavours of spice, cinnamon and hops. Interesting beer that I do recommend you try.

Bottle. Hazy golden-orange pour. Mild malt and hops, with spices and nutmeg that ultimately define the beer. Nothing too extraordinary, but does it’s job fairly well, a nice casual beer. Worked nicely on Thanksgiving too!

650 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a very slightly cloudy orange-gold with modest-sized white head. Aroma has lots of spice, especially nutmeg and allspice, and pumpkin. Taste is similarly full of spices, with a nice pumpkin presence and a little bitterness in the finish. A solid pumpkin beer.
