3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Enjoy by December 15, 2014.
Glass: Carton teku.
Appearance: Hazy amber/orange body with a creamy white head that has good retention.
Aroma: The aroma is of pumpkin and cinnamon primarily, semi-sweet and not bad. One of the better smelling pumpkin beers there, nicely balanced.
Taste: Mildly sweet with banana showing through with a touch of wheat, mild nutmeg, clove and cinnamon on the finish. Enjoyable as it’s mild and balanced nicely.
Palate: Creamy bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: One of the more enjoyable pumpkin beers because it’s got substance other than spices. Clove is a bit much on the finish, but I find myself recommending this due to price and quality. Worth trying.

Pours a merkey golden color with a nice white foamy head. Aroma is faint. Taste is kind of herby and fruity. A hint of spice. Not much on the pumpkin. A little watery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cloudy amber body with a thin white head that faded away fast. Aroma was heavy on spices mainly cloves some hints of nutmeg and a bit of orange peel. Pumpkin was a pleasantly sour note. A hint of brown sugar. Flavor had a nice blend of spices and brown sugar. It was a little more balanced than the aroma let on. Pumpkins seemed slightly earth. Easy to drink.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
