3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours a clear yet rich auburn color with only a off-white ring sitting on top of the liquid. The aroma blends dough yeast, caramel malt, a hint of pumpkin, and the tiniest amount of cinnamon. The taste is mildly sour with the slightest touch of sweetness, yet it does contain a slight amount of umami that adds an interesting and pleasant aspect to the flavor; furthermore, the palate combines a soft carbonation, full body, slick texture, and an abrupt finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a deep copper color with a slight pumpkin aroma. Taste is mild pumpkin mixed with the malt of a brown ale. The alcohol content comes through with every drink. The aftertaste has the flavor of overriped pumpkin.

Poured into a shaker pint. Pours a light brown with little tan head. Get almost no spice taste or aroma. More of a slightly bitter ale. Very underwhelming pumpkin ale. Rated lower because it claims to be a pumpkin ale but I get none of the notes of this style. A good beer just not a good pumpkin beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very nice and different pumpkin ale. Pours a beautiful bright red with a thick tan head. Smells like pumpkin, along with some vanilla and some booze. Taste is very creamy to start. Not much in the beginning, but some nutmeg and pumpkin in the finish. Awesome spiced pumpkin aftertaste. Had in the bottle.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a slight spice and a slight caramel malt. Flavor is a rich malt with some alcohol and sweetness. Where is the pumpkin pie spice? There is nothing "pumpkin pie" about this beer. It’s just a heavy malt billed beer with a lot of alcohol. Craptacular.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very clear and not much head. 9% is not apparent. I don’t really detect any flavorful pumpkin but if you look for it maybe you can taste a bitter earthy pumpkin rind. It is a nice big grainy red ale though. Thin watery body with a dry bitterness. Very little sweetness. I like red ale so I enjoyed this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brilliant amber color with lasting ivory head. Nice raw pumpkin meat, pie crust malty aromas. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Dry caramel, roasted pumpkin meat flavors with some brown ale nuttiness----no spices in this brew i guess====good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from BevMo. Pours deep ruby in color. Subdued nose of malt and grain. Quite bready up front with a rich full bodied maltiness. Definitely a malt forward beer, but it is surprisingly rich and full flavored. No spice to be found. Pretty good.

Bottle from BevMo, Folsom. Pours orange copper with a clinging off-white head and a spice and pumpkin aroma. There is a bitter brown ale flavor with a very dry finish. Not particularly tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh hops and pine on the nose. Deep amber in color with small foam. Taste brings assertive hops and caramel malts. The pumpkin is very toned down but still present in the back of the palate. Overall, I’m actually pretty impressed with this one. Not bad at all. A- rating.
