3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a medium sized foamy tan head. The aroma was strong sweet cinnamon, sugar and clove with a hint of nutmeg. The flavor was incredibly spicy and dry with strong notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove and a moderate undertone of caramel and brown sugar. The finish was very long and exceptionally spicy. Fairly full bodied and smooth. The alcohol was well hidden. Too dominated by the spice but interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange gold with a thin fizzy head that completely vaporizes immediately and leaves no lace. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin and cinnamon. I see there are other spices according to the label, but I am just getting cinnamon in the nose. The flavor is pumpkin and cinnamon (again I am not getting any of the other spices) along with a bit of malt and Juicy Fruit gum. Fairly smooth on the palate. Alcohol is well hidden. This is a good pumpkin ale but a step below the group on the top tier.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear orange/amber color with a half inch fizzy off-white head that went away pretty quickly. Not much lacing at all. Aroma is very strong and spicy, mostly like cinnamon and cloves but with some nutmeg, ginger and pumpkin noticable too. I can taste all the spices and pumpkin, but for whatever reason the taste doesn’t live up to what this brew smells like. It’s a lot weaker tasting than I thought it would be, at least compared to the aroma anyway. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with low carbonation. Drinkability is OK enough. It’s a decent pumpkin ale, but not one of my favorites. I think it’s worth trying, I wouldn’t turn one down.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A decent pumpkin beer. A little ordinary in some regards, but very drinkable. Aroma was nice and sweet, though a little subdued. Nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin with a sweet caramel backbone. Pour was a thick sticky light brown with slow moving bubbles and a thin off white film for a head. Taste was good. Nutmeg, brown sugar, cinnamon and pumpkin in the front with a sweet malty sticky aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is orange amber with virtually no head. The nose is all pumpkin pie spices. The taste is smooth with traces of pumpkin pie and caramel. I prefer the Weyerbacher, but this is not bad at all.
