3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the tap into a pint glass.
The color is a light yellowish/amber with a finger of foamy white head and some slight lacing left on the glass.
The smell is spicy with some pumpkin in the nose but does not stay around very long.
The taste is sweet with some spicy tones mixed with some malty flavor that holding the body together. Some nice pumpkin flavor is throughout this beer but does fade a little too fast.
The feel of this beer is light and crisp with a refreshing feel to it. It goes down rather easy and males for a good fall beer .

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The pour is cloudy and rusty orange with a short-lived head and continuing carbonation. The aroma has a nice spicy and pumpkin note with a light hoppy backdrop. The body is rather thin. The taste has enough of a pumpkin taste to let you know it is there but I wouldn’t call it overwhelming. Kind of a crisp finish. Enjoyable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught into pint glass. Pours a golden wheat color with a full finger head which doesn’t hold. Nose holds light pumpkin and wheat, grass, and some sweetness. Flavor is medium to light pumpkin, citrus and orange. Overall, not my favorite pumpkin

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice but weak aroma of clove and cinnamon, some orange. Clear amber, medium off white head, nice lacing. Thin body. Spices are even less pronounced in the flavor. Pumpkin and allspice. Beery barley malt finish. Sessionable, not overly done.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Lighter amber orange color. The head fades fast. The taste is sweet with some nutmeg coming out in the finish. Clean finish. Seems too sweet and underspiced. This is quite different from other pumpkin brews.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden orange, with a white head, lingers, ... spicy pumpkin aroma, this is nicely balanced between pumpkin and spice.... lively, kind of has a pumpkin cider flavor, a light bit of tartness, medium thin body, light fruits and or sweetness, not nearly as spicy as the aroma indicated... this beer is surprisingly decent, smells a bit better than it tastes, but the body and light tartness make it easy drinking and refreshing, though thats not really what i think about when i think about a pumpkin and or fall beer, bit of a catch 22

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orange/amber with a thick tan head. Aroma has light pumpkin and light spice...slightly doughy. flavor is hoppy and spiced with a light doughy pumpkin quality. Mouthfeel is silky and the finish is spicy but pumpkin pie-like. Not too bad...more towards the pumpkin pie end than the spiced end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased a 12 oz bottle @ Julio’s Liquors, Westborough MA. Used a lager glass. Deep amber color with a light orange hue. Full thick head, dissipated and left nice lace. Nose of cinnamon, clove and pumpkin. What sets this one above some others of the style is the heavier, fuller body. Medium body is good for the style. It has a tart or slightly sour pumpkin that I like. I would buy this one again. If you want to try it, get a fresh bottle. It would be nice on draft.

My first pumpkin beer. Nice cloudy appearance and a spicy nose. Nice strong pumpkin spice but not a ton of the vegetal aspects of a pumpkin beer you would expect. Still, I really like this and look forward to trying more of this style.
