2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Flat pour with minimal head, muddy orange body. Aroma is subtle with hints of bread, cherry and cinnamon. The flavor exhibits spices as advertised along with banana bread (probably from the clove) and apple cider. Soft carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Not bad for a pumpkin ale, but very generic-tasting compared to others I've tried and a tad flat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange pour with a pretty big white head. Aroma is ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Nice body, smooth mouthfeel. Not much pumpkin flavor, but the atumn notes are there... spicy nutmegesque notes with a peppery finish. The pumpkin is there but it’s towards the back end and gets a bit muddled. Warms you right up though. Good fall beer fo sho.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from big bottle. Aroma is pumpkin, toast, brown sugar. Amber with barely a head. I taste the same pumpkin / brown sugar with cinnamon, spice, nut and pepper as well. A bit of booze in back. Has a lot going on but very drinkable. Great beer for this cool, windy day.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Liked it - tastes nice. Not overwhelming on the spices so the pumpkin is the star for a change. Very pretty in the glass, nice head, orange body, much lacing. The spices are supporting actors - even maybe a little kick of ginger in there that;s nice. Better than others that are just jacked up on the pie spice mix. Besides the label is SO cool, worth having just for that!
