3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-2-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a rather hazy orange amber color with a big billowy white head. The head fades rather fast leaving a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is of sweet caramel and roasted pumpkin. Mixed with these aromas are a good deal of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Overall spicy and pumpkin like.
Taste - The taste begins with a rather sweeter caramel, a bit of wheat bread and more light to moderate roasted pumpkin taste. These flavors create a base for the brew with a spice flavor of cinnamon and nutmeg soon come to the tongue with the cinnamon getting stronger as the taste advances. A little bit of a citrus lemon taste joins the flavor profile at the end leaving a pumpkin and citrus sweet wheat flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thinner side for a beer of 5.9 % with a medium level of carbonation for the style. Not a bad overall feel for the brew and rather appropriate for the style.
Overall- A decent pumpkin brew but nothing out of the ordinary. Easy drinking and a bit on the spicier side with a somewhat lighter pumpkin flavor overall.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a small fizzy beige head that faded completely. The nose is dominated by cinnamon with some lighter pumpkin and yeastiness. The flavor is so heavily spices with cinnamon and nutmeg that it almost burns the tongue. I could go for a little more yeastiness in here, given that it’s promoted as unfiltered. Lingering nutmeg and cinnamon with some minimal pumpkin meat. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Meh, towards the bottom of the bunch as far as pumpkin beers go.

Poured a hazy orange tinged amber with a slight white head which disappeared quickly........aroma of nutmeg, allspice......taste nutmeg and cinnamon in the foreground, slight pumpkin fruit flavor and finished with a heavier mouthfeel tailing off with very slight bittering. Nice, not over powering, not a spice bomb....well done.

Amber pour. Pumpkin spices and wheaty aroma. Taste is okay. Light spices that work well with the wheat, medium bodied. Okay pumpkin beer as they go, certain nothing special.

12oz bottle shared. Poured a medium lightly cloudy orange color with an off white head. Aroma is pumpkin with the spices underneath. The flavor is suprisingly good. Decent pumpkin flavor. The spices of cinnamon and nutmeg are still underlying and not overpowering. Medium mouth feel. Overall pretty good.

Appearance is amber with medium white head. Aroma is some spices. Taste skimps on the pumpkin, but the spices are more pronounced. Overall not the greatest pumpkin beer.
