Pours a clean orange amber with a one finger light orange head. The nose is sweet, spicy, strong nutmeg and allspice, pumpkin meat, pretty pungent. Flavor is spicy and sweet, nutmeg and allspice again, mild spice astringency with some allusion to alcohol. Spicy on the palate with some warmth.

Another pumpkin beer shared by emacgee. Thanks dude. Tasted much like the last with the usual suspects- nutmeg, allspice, pumpkin. Better than the last, but I would never drink this voluntarily.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bomber from EZ Liquors. Pours an orangey/amber with a smaller white head that quickly and totally disipates. The aroma on this one is the best thing about this beer, lots of spice, pumpkin, vanilla extract and alcohol. Fuller bodied with lots of alcohol warming, a bit too much if I may say so. Flavor is lots of spices, lots of alcohol and the pumpkin is present but not as apparent as the overspiceing and over kill ABV. The overpowering alcohol on this one really takes over the aroma, palate and flavor...spicey pumpkin alcohol bomb.

22 ounce. Big pumpkin aroma and spice. Heavy carbonation. Given that it was probably bottled last October, it’s held up really well and the spices are all dominant.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Gilly’s, 11/16/09
Aroma: The aroma has some of the nice pumpkin spice and other spice characteristics I like in this style
Appearance: A mostly clear orange color with a thin lasting head, and light, drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is also lots of spice malts with a nice hop backing, spice is more cinnamon and nutmeg then pumpkin
Palate: The carbonation is pretty high for this beer, the mouthfeel is pretty nice, and a bit dry, and a bit of alcohol feel
This is a pretty good Pumpkin beer, but my main complaint is that the pumpkin spice is not as predominant as I would like it to be. That is only a minor compliant though, as I did enjoy this beer. As winter beers start to show up more, and this style is less available in stores, I can already tell I’m about to start missing the pumpkin beers. This is a quite good one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of BMan1113VR. Clear orange pour. Bit of a tart smell with some spice. If you think pumpkin then it will come out. Taste is spicy to say the least. The drying aspect of pumpkin is felt later on. Finishes with some autumn spice and dryness. Not bad.

22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours ruby/copper with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, caramel, and a little bit of hops. Flavor the same, with a nice blend and a little bit of alcohol on the finish. Smooth texture. A decent pumpkin beer.
