3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Blind Tiger. Amber pour with no head. The nose is fairly spicy. A bit of light herbal character. There is a bit of herbal hoppiness initially with a soft fruity character as well. A touch of ginger and allspice with some clove and cinnamon. A very nice spicy note with a soft herbal pumpkiny character with the light hoppy spiciness on the back. Very lovely pint.

22oz bottle from Norm’s Beer and Wine. Nice color, decent pumpkin aroma. Sweet pumpkin taste that covers the 8% alcohol.
I’m adding this beer to my favored pumpkin beers list.

This was a really nice full bodoed but balanced and mellow seasonal. While the alcohol was hwefty it did not impact that much. Very slightly cloudy

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spicy and malty flavor up front that is fantastic, but quickly turns a bit boozy and has a weird finish. Aside from the finish, very good beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Happy Halloween! This pours a hazy, opaque rusty orange, with a finger-thick head of white foam. The aroma is pure autumn, with an apple spice kick. In the flavor, it comes across as a spiced cider more than a pumpkin ale, with a body that’s much lighter and juice-like than any other "imperial" brew I can recall. Enjoyable on a cold trick-or-treat night. (#3723, 10/31/2009)

Pours opaqe with a thin off white cream head. Brusting with nutmag, cinnaman and apple cider overall this is a good pumpkin ale

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The funny thing about this brew is that I smell and taste old-fashioned grape salt water taffy; no doubt a fruity ester... There is a background note of nutmeg, if faint. The pumpkin flavor does not shine, nor does the overall flavor; not bad, just not to my liking.

On tap at Capone’s. A richly flavored pumpkin ale, sweet and spicy, with clove and pumpkin flavors. Very nice - another high quality offering from Heavy Seas.
