3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a hazy orange amber with a 1 inch creamy light beige head that eventually dropped to just a film and left very little lacing. For a pumpkin ale the aroma that hit me right away was egg nog. Lots of nutmeg and a mix of other spices. The texture of the beer was pretty creamy with a good amount of alcohol right away. The alcohol left a nice warmth down the throat. The flavor had nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and a good amount of malt sweetness to balance a bit of a hops bite through the middle that faded to a lingering alcohol warmth on the finish. This was pretty good, but I would just get The Greater Pumpkin from now on after trying both.

Bottle from Crown#6. Pours cloudy/crystal dark orange with rising bubbles and minimal white head. Nose is slight pumpkin spice and some spicy hops. Taste is relatively smooth, slightly carbonated, slight pumpkin flavor and a decent amount of hops. A little odd overall, not my favorite pumpkin brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. One of the better pumpkin beers Iíve tried. Pumpkin, brown sugar and spice with a subtle, unobtrusive and pleasant hit of hops. Maybe a bit a the syrupy sweet side for me.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
aroma: ahh, there is a strong cinnamon aroma
appearance: bright orange amber with a thin head
taste: the spice element (nutmeg and cinnamon) is present in the taste and you can feel in on the tongue. this is a well-balanced brew.
palate: the brew is medium bodied and flows well. the aftertaste is spiced as well
overall: this is a great pumpkin beer. I consider it one of the best I have had to date. (by the way, this is awesome with a slice of pumpkin bread!)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours from a 22oz. bomber bottle a medium amber/orange color with a small head that quickly dissolved into a light lacing. The aroma is malty and slightly sweet, with hints of pumpkin pie spices and maybe just a hint of Alcohol. 1st sip brings a taste of pumpkin, malt, and spices. There is a strong bitterness on the finish from a combination of hops, alcohol & spice. The mouth feel is smooth and Medium Body. I notice some Pumpkin Ales choose to have the Pumpkin Taste as the Main Flavor, While others have it as the "Spice". I prefer the spice, and this one is somewhere in the middle. A Decent one, but not in the top 5.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy deep orange pour that looks more like vegetable juice than beer. Thin but fluffy white head that fades quickly. A magnificent aroma erupts from the glass after the pour. Pumpkin, tons of cinnamon and ginger, and a little bit of nutmeg. Very sweet and pumpkin pie-ish. Flavor is more pumpkin and less sweet than it smells. Still, it packs a lot of brown sugar and cinnamon flavor. Medium body with perfect carbonation. Fantastic. Maybe not quite as good as Pumking, but damn close, and a perfect accompaniment to anyoneís Thanksgiving dinner or dessert. This year Iím thankful I saved a bottle of each one!

2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bomber into glass. Pours a dark cloudy-ish orange. Small white head, no carbonation. Straight soapy aroma, strange. Pumpkiny flavor and alcohol present for sure. Pretty good but not great.
