4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a nice translucent orange with an average bubbly white head.
Spicy pumpkin aromas. Sweet nutmeg aromas.
Big malty flavors at first. Spicy cinnamon, clove and pumpkin flavors. And a bit of nutty sweetness before washing down with a slight bit of bitter hoppiness to it. Also a slight tinge of alcohol gives it a little heat to add to the spice.
Medium bodied. with a creamy and soft texture. A little watery diminishes the finish but a pretty solid pumpkin ale. A little unique with a more hoppy finish than you would really expect in a pumpkin beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 22 oz bottle. Hazy orange brew with frothy head. Aroma dominated by spice - cinnamon, nutmeg, clove. Taste is nice malts and hints of pumpkin at first, transitioning to a full spicey witches brew. If you like spice this is for you - no fake ’atomic fireball’ stuff here - you can tell it is brewed with fine spices. But, if like me, you don’t care for spice except as a flavor enhancer... or spice melange... well, not so great. Palate is a little watery. Great for the spice lovers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours slightly hazy orange color with smallish white head. Aroma is mostly spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, with some biscuity malt background. Tastes mostly spicy, sweet caramel also with just a hint of pumpkin/squash/earthy notes. Not very pumpkin, but the spice profile is there. Good, but not great.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is very sweet. Appearance is burnt orange with little to no head. Taste starts sweet with a bitter finish. It’s almost as if a sweet pumpkin - ie Pumpking meets a more traditional & bitter pumpkin. Overall, a tasty brew and a nice effort from Heavy Seas.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malty aroma has a firm overtone of pumpkin and cinnamon - very October indeed. It pours a slightly hazy coppery amber with a thin pale pumpkin-orange head, but the condition of the head may be an artifact of the pour. Lip-smacking malty flavor has firm tones of pumpkin and cinnamon with hints of cloves and fruit and a bit of an alcohol nip. Texture has above average body and is smooth with a subtle fizz, leaving an edgy, malty, pumpkin finish. Perfect for this time of year!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a slightly red amber color with a thin off-white head that faded quickly. Aroma has lots of pumpkin and spices. Nutmeg and almonds. Taste is very creamy with lots of pumpkin and more nutmeg. Finish is a bit hoppy with more spices and some warming alcohol. Overall it’s slightly sweet, but the balance is still good. The finish is a little syrupy however. Overall a decent pumpkin beer.
