3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the Coffee District, poured an orangish color, aromas of all spice, cinnamon, and some light pumpkin. Flavors follow suit, spice lingers on the palate, not the best of this style, but ok overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a darkish golden-amber body, fairly clouded, and with a small, white he--oh, it’s gone already.
Smell: Pumpkin-scented nose with the spices coming through, notably the cinnamon ahead of the basic, bready German base malts.
Taste: Lightly sugary, bready Malts, scantly toasted. Cinnamon, nutmeg, but also something with a warm accent to it akin to clove or possibly ginger. Light bitterness aided by the spice and carbonation. Spicy, solidly carbonated finish with the spiciness lingering out into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: For me, nothing says mid-August in the sweltering heat of Georgia like an Autumntime pumpkin beer??

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid orangy brown with 1-finger white head. Nose is pumpkin puree, spice. Tastes very pumpkin spicy, with fresh pumpkin puree flavor, cinnamon, graham crackers. Medium palate, and gets a tad sour as it warms. This one is very good.

Call me a sucker for taste... And this beer has a lot of it. Had it right after a Tremens delirium and its taste over powered delirium’s. The aroma its just inviting. Amazing social beer. Cheers!

Not awful. Pumpkin and cinnamon. Nutmeg. It's a pumpkin beer so flavored don't differ much. Not too sweet and pumpkin isnt overbearing. Not bad

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This had an interesting smell. At first, I found it muted and a little dull, but as it warmed it reminded me alternately of Dentyne gum and soft pretzels - there was a distinct mustardy twang, which when mixed with the yeast/malt aromas came off as hot pretzel. Decent label, standard US longneck, foggy oak-colored beer, fine head. Cinnamon and salty flavors, reminded me a bit of the cinnamon fritters you get at the Mexican restaurant. Lightly sweet, spice bittering, implied apple tones. Medium body, frothy mouthfeel, subtle spice and hop bittering in the finish. Cinnamon gum on the lips. No immature squash/gourd flavors from the pumpkin. Just had this back to back with Blue Point Pumpkin, and I’d be hard pressed to pick a winner - they were different interpretations of the pumpkin brew, but I’d pick this one if pushed in a corner. It was pretty deftly done for a style that can go way wrong. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a cloudy light orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, and a slight vanilla smell. Taste is slightly sweet pumpkin and nutmeg with a little bit of a bitter finish. Not sure why such low ratings but then again I’m a sucker for a pumpkin beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from craft beer outlet. Pours a nice hazy orange, with some pumpkin and spices in the nose. Taste however is a bit sweet/spicy upfront with some slight pumpkin-ness. A bit malty. This is ok, probably won’t have again.
