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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours a light copper with a thick, cream-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice with a little caramel malts and floral hops. The flavor of pumpkin pie is really apparent, and it’s a little too sweet. Sort of light texture. A decent beer, but not the best.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a hazy orange and finished with a nice fluffy tan head, but it disappeared quickly. The aroma was top notch but it was a bit thin. Overall very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange-amber with a moderate off-white head that laces a little. Aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon, pumpkin bread, a little must, and something that smells like ginger. The taste is sweet malt with a moderate pumpkin and spice flavor, and a very mild bitterness. Medium bodied. The elements are pretty good, it just doesn’t excel anywhere.
