3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Appearance is a copper with a beige head. Aroma is pumpkin with spicy notes of coriander, cardamom, and cinnamon. A lot like a pumpkin pie beer. Taste is one that I enjoy, seeing as I enjoy pumpkin pie. Medium bodied. Too bad this one will only be available for a short amount of time.

Sampled at Jackie O’s Experimental Beer Fest on 11/6/10. Pours a clear amber/copper with a medium tan head. Aroma is cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. Cinnamon flavor up front with some sweet malt, nutmeg and allspice before a dry ginger finish. Not short on the spices. My kind of pumpkin ale.

Had on tap at Jackie O’s Anniversary Party. Man, was this a surprise. Not a fan of the pumpkin beers. This one was REALLY good. Flavor of vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin. Nicely blended. Easy to drink.
