3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got a 6 pack of this for $6 so I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume it was last year’s batch.
Appearance- Cloudy brown/orange with a huge white head that leaves lacing.
Smells- Pumpkin and spices
Taste- Stronger pumpkin sweetness than I was expecting. Pretty much unfettered pumpkin pie flavor. My friends thought it was too sweet but I thought it was very nice. It was one note, but it was a good note.
Mouthfeel-MEdium body and carbonated slightly.
OVerall- Pleasant surprise. I’m pretty sure that it was an expired batch and it was still good so needless to say I will buy some of this years batch. Worth a try.

12 ounce bottle porous a copper orange color with lots of sediment particles. Huge pumpkin and cinnamon pumpkin pie spice aromas. Nice balance of hop bitterness and clove and multi sweetness in the end. Medium level of carbonation. Very nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Signal Variety, Plaistow, NH. Aroma is, surprise, surprise like pumpkin pie--cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. Appearance is hazy orange with consistent carbonation and small white head with decent retention and negligible lacing. Taste is moderately sweet. Palate is medium bodied, milky texture, with average carbonation with above average kick at the tip of the tongue toward the finish, which is short. Overall a moderately flavorful representative of the genre. No surprises here to the good or bad.

I rather enjoyed this one. I'd say it's one of the better pumpkin varieties out there.

Very light on the pumpkin flavor. Brown sugar taste to it. Middle of the road seasonal beer.

Cloudy orange color. Aroma minimal and palat is pretty boring. Reminds me of a pumpkin blue moon.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Sticky Lips on recommendation of bartender. Yes, this is pretty decent. Very rich in spices, but the best part is the thick rich palate, a bit oily. Plenty of body.
