4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2011 Sweet, autumn spicy, boozy aroma with a bright copper appearance. The head is small and tan in color. It is very smooth on the palate for such a high ABV with a malty slightly sweet and spicy flavor. The flavors of pumpkin and spice blend so well on the palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Another fall 2009 beer found in the beer fridge. I’m not a big fan of this style, but Since this is a local brewer, I thought I owed it to him to try it. The aroma is pumpkin and mild hops. The pour is orange in color and the head is a small ring of yellowish bubbles. The flavor is a very nice mix of hops and pumpkin. I have had many a pumpkin beer that seemed like it lacked any pumpkin and had a heaping helping of pumpking spice, that is not the case here. while the pumpkin flavor is noticable, the spice mix is i not too stong. you will notice the clove, nutmeg and touch of cinnamon. The malts are roasty and sweet. A very good pumpking beer.

Copper-orange pour. Lots of baked pumpkin aroma and flavor. There’s lots of spice in there too. I get a lot of nutmeg, a little cinnamon and some allspice. The malt imparts a Graham cracker and brown sugar note. Kind of like Pumking but not as dominant. The body is sticky, medium with moderate carbonation.

Finally a beer that can rival pumpking, this one comes damn close, I still think I like Pumking more but this comes damn close. Pours orange with a bright white ring. Nose has a pumpkin kick. Taste is sweet, rich and quite big. Lots of seasonally spiced pumpkin!
