DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottles from Wegmans and Capone’s. Pours chill hazy caramel colored with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is pumpkin spice, cardamom, vienna malt., Tastes semi-sweet, with a medium palate heft and complexity, and a flavor that has pumpkin and pumpkin spice up front, then some malt kicks in, but the punpkin is the star here.

Bottle. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin malt aroma. Cloudy amber with small head. Sweet nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, light malt and mildly bitter herbal flavor. Not bad - standard pumpkin ale.

Ughsmash (7177) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium orange with a short toasted marshmallow head. The aroma picked up sweet pumpkin and vanilla paired with nutmeg and a touch of cinnamon.. quite nice. The flavor found watery pumpkin meat and bready notes at the core with more nutmeg and cinnamon around.. prickly carbonation and some prickly carbonation on the weak finish. Light-bodied with mostly spicage on the palate.. this just needed more substance.

On tap at Dutch’s... First pour from the keg. Completely cloudy kind of light brown color (which I’m sure will clear out in subsequent pours). Thin off-white head, leaving great thicker lace. Up front in the nose, great pumpkin, pumpkin spice, and a bit of citrusy hop aroma. In the flavor, a pretty impressive malt balance... Good chocolate, mild caramel, and a bit of that honey malt in there. Medium plus body.. Very smooth and easy-drinking. Crisp lighter carbonation, light chewiness to the body, more dry finish. Kind of a spicier taste towards the finish, mild to moderate bitterness, moderate sweet taste. Pretty solid, enjoyable pumpkin ale. Up front, I was loving this. It was my first pumpkin beer of the year, so my palate was ready. Maybe I needed a beer too, at the moment. Halfway through the spice started to show up a lot more and grind on the overall package a bit, and I slowed down. Still a very a solid, enjoyable pumpkin beer.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear ruby tinged amber with a medium sized white head. Lots of spices on the nose, a light hint of pumpkin. Medium bodied, a bit sweet, bitter spices. Burnt toast, a good amount of bitter spices. Meh.
