3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a copper color with a small off white head. The nose has a mix of pumpkin spices with lighter gourd notes. Fairly crisp on the palate which is a little unique for the style. Some yeast, subdued spice, a little canned pumpkin flavor, and light florals. A lighter, different take on the style. Not bad.

Draft at Draught 55. Pours orange with nice nose of pumpkin spicing. Tastes of traditional pumpkin ale spices like nutmeg, cloves, and pumpkin pie filling andthey are in nice balance. You also get malt, caramel, and earth. Touch light but overall tasty.

This had the right balance of sweet vs spice and hops. Just a burst of flavor from the scent to the taste and after taste. The aftertaste of pumpkin is what made me give it higher ratings.

Strong pumpkin spice. Good crisp fall beer for the falling leaves and smoking chimneys and football games. Slight zip of tanginess with a thin texture.

A pretty solid pumpkin beer, the flavor of pumpkin really comes through. Unfortunately there wasn’t a lot of spice notes, but all in all a pretty decent pumpkin beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, enjoy by 12/15/13. Nose actually has some strong pumpkin character, but also very sweet and heavy in pie spice, but some pleasant floral perfumes and yeast as well. Pours hazy orange with a noisy, beige head that’s soon gone. Crisp medium-full body with a Hefeweizen-like amount of yeast, some small citrus and earthy pumpkin, pie spices are under control. Really like the heavy carbonation with the yeast, hitting all the right HW notes, even some lesser esters and phenols under the spice additions (although I suppose they are adding actual cloves). Honestly, really impressed! Something different and successful.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of sweet brown sugar, nutmeg and fall spices, pumpkin and caramel malts. Nice aroma. Hazy medium orange/amber hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is very sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium bodied and oily with an average carbonation. Overall a nice pumpkin brew with a really good brown sugar note. Enjoyed it.
