3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle, stamp on bottle says enjoy by 02/15/14. Guess I can’t complain, a buddy gave me a bottle of this a couple weeks ago so it was free. And I’m in the mood for a pumpkin beer so might was well try it! Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy orange/amber color with some sediment floaties noticeable. There’s also an inch and a half off-white head with good retention, along with a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like pumpkin spices and pumpkin. The taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like pumpkin spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves), pumpkin, and some bready malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy, smooth and easy to drink. I liked this brew, hopefully this upcoming fall I’ll try a fresher batch of this!

Dark oragne, amber almost in color. The pumpkin in prominent in the aroma with recognizable spices. The flavor is the same, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon but there is something else in there I can’t figure out. Nice pumpkin beer. Certainly one the better ones in my opinion

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent beer. Very hazy golden pour with light lacing. Strong coriander aroma. Spices kinda overpower the malt backbone, but do mostly to lack of malt backbone than high spice. Very drinkable, even now in spring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a hazy orange colored body that leaves some ringy lacing. A decent one finger white head appears and lasts for about a good minute before slowly dieing into the body. No carbonation is seen rising.
The smell had the pumpkin up front with a good combination of nutmeg, clove, and ginger gently backing it up.
The taste was pretty much the same.
The palate sat about a medium on the body and has no harshness on the tongue, very smooth. I would say this is a very drinkable beer.
Overall, this is a pumpkin ale I could come back to if I could find again.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours a murky orange color with a thick fluffy white head that stays around awhile before dissipating. the aroma is bland but you do pick up some spices and pumpkin, maybe even clove? the taste is exactly as if eating pumpkin pie. unlike most pumpkin beers i have tried, its very sweet with no bitterness. you could put some whip cream on this and never know your drinking a beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange colored pour. Small white head that does not stick around for long. Some lacing. Big ginger aroma with other pumpkin pie spices and a slight pumpkin meat note. Taste is a numbing ginger with pumpkin pie spice. A bit more cinnamon than necessary. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy burnt orange with very little head. Aroma is estery spices offering up the the typical pumpkin brew fare. Flavor is mostly reminiscent of gingerbread. The spices are what make this beer but the lack of any discernible malt backbone keep it from being anything truly remarkable.

Orange color poured from a tap with thin head. Nutmeg and pumpkin spice taste. Great pumpkin beer about to go out of stock.
