Sample at Hal & Al’s during the Pumpkin Beer Tasting on 10/15/2013: Clear orange-amber pour with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft served in a pint glass at The Nines in Ithaca. Pours a deep orange color, just a little cloudy, with a tiny off-white head that doesn’t last at all. The aroma needs a little warming to emerge and when it does it brings nutmeg, brown sugar, graham crackers, and cinnamon. The flavor hits the same not with only a slight hint of anything vegetal. Light-bodied, with a sweet, malty mouthfeel with mellow spice and moderate carbonation. Solid pumpkin ale. Nice to try it fresh and local.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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:   Reddish side of amber, faint haze, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Spicy nose, cinnamon, nutmeg, lots of allspice.   Similar tongue, just the right amount of spiciness IMO.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, lingering spices.   This is a nice straight forward example of the style!
