3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
i had zero intention on trying this b/c of the fact that I hate pumpkin beers. With that being said this is one of the better/best pumpkin beers i’ve tried After, Brad convinced me to give it a whirl. Clear copper pour with a thin off white head. Aroma is spice. Flavor is pumpkin pie, light vanilla and brown suagr

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample @ experimental beer fest in November. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma had the typical holiday spices with mild pumpkin notes. The flavor had mild pumpkin and holiday spices, cinnamon being noticeable, with a decent bitterness toward the finish. The flavor didn’t seem to pop like I was expecting, however this was consumed in between some big flavorful beers. I will revisit this the next time it comes out and update my rating.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery during the 5th anniversary party. Poured a hazy reddish amber with a gray head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was dominated by cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar with a pumpkin backing. Flavor had a pumpkin note at the start but was quickly overtaken by cardamon, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar.

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.
