3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Signal Variety, Plaistow, NH. Aroma is, surprise, surprise like pumpkin pie--cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. Appearance is hazy orange with consistent carbonation and small white head with decent retention and negligible lacing. Taste is moderately sweet. Palate is medium bodied, milky texture, with average carbonation with above average kick at the tip of the tongue toward the finish, which is short. Overall a moderately flavorful representative of the genre. No surprises here to the good or bad.

I rather enjoyed this one. I'd say it's one of the better pumpkin varieties out there.

Very light on the pumpkin flavor. Brown sugar taste to it. Middle of the road seasonal beer.

Cloudy orange color. Aroma minimal and palat is pretty boring. Reminds me of a pumpkin blue moon.

On tap at Sticky Lips on recommendation of bartender. Yes, this is pretty decent. Very rich in spices, but the best part is the thick rich palate, a bit oily. Plenty of body.

Draft at Kirby’s Pub in Ocean City, MD served in a pint glass, clear orangy-amber color with off-white head. Aroma of heavy pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, little clove) and some pumpkin in the roast malt sweetness. Taste brings out more pumpkin earthiness and light caramel. Light body, moderate carbonation, lively with minimal roast sweet finish. On the lighter side of pumpkin beers.
