2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Cloudy light orange-yellow color with a big off white head that didn’t last long. No lacing. Good pumpkin spice taste. A little on the wheaty side. Enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle a dark, cloudy amber colour. A nice aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices. Neither over powering the other. Taste was much of the same, though the pumpkin could have been a bit more prominent among the spices and malt flavors. A good brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
I would have rated this beer a 4 or more had the appearance been better. While the head and lacing were very good, the color was cloudy and brownish copper. I was hoping for a clear reddish hue. Other than that, the beer had a fantastic taste and a very smooth finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Nice aroma of pumpkin, brown sugar and spice. Solid amber with lacing head. Pumpkin and spice lead with malt, hops
and spice. Feel is somewhat thin and watery. No match for the top pumpkin ales, but ok.

Rated from notes taken 21 Sep 2013 -- A decent offering. I will say Harpoon has not made a beer I’ve disliked.
