Location: 12 oz bottle from Half Time, 10/23/12
Aroma: The nose has some nutmeg, pumpkin, clove, allspice, toast, and a little bit of hop
Appearance: It pours a caramel-orange color with a small beige head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is a little bit sweet, has a medium spice component, and a light bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it feels a little bit tingly, and drinks pretty nicely
Nice job here by I thought that this was a really solid pumpkin/spice beer. It may not be an absolutely top of style example, but it works pretty well.

New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($2.25): Pours a weird brownish amber with a head that fizzles away in seconds. Aroma is candied sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and some other dessert flavors. Taste is somewhat sweet, with some bubblegum, like Big Red flavours. Pretty good.

Pours a nice orange/honey color with a medium off white head...lively. aroma has mild pumpkin pie spice...not overdone but just right. Flavor follows suit and adds light pie crust and earthy hops. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is slightly dry and spiced. Well done pumpkin beer.

My first pumpkin beer of the season so I can’t start complaining yet. And this one’s actually decent with nice integration of clove, ginger and gourd. Pours orange with a little head and lacing. Average carbonation. Finishes slightly sweet from malt and spice. Tap at brewpub.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is pumpkin, squash, spices, bread dough. The appearance is fairly clear amber, white head. The flavor is like the aroma, a little more weaker and watery. Watery finish, bland, light pine hops after a second or two. Thin/medium in body. Not especially gross, but definitely not great.
