3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Nutmeg, a bit of cinnamon, a hint of pumpkin, brown sugar and a hint of toasty malt. No hop aroma.
Appearance: Slightly hazy copper with a thin, fine white head that lasts. Filtered bottle with no sediment.
Taste: Flavor is mostly spice with a bit of pumpkin and a little toasty malt. No hop flavor unless itís a bit of English muddiness hiding behind the spice.
Mouthfeel: Sweetish, medium body. Low carbonation
Overall: Decent pumpkin beer, but pretty one-dimensional. Most pumpkin beers are really just pumpkin spice beers- itís neither surprising nor necessarily bad that this one is as well.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 08/14/14. Sampled 6 months later so that should be noted. Typical pumpkin orange pour with a quick-lasting head. a little milky. Bright vibrant aroma of sweetness, pumpkin spice, apply and other juicy fruits. Medium body. The spices creep up in the flavor more than I expected along with a juicy fruitiness that overpowers any pumpkin spices that are there. Not sure how to rate this one. It doesnít really fit the style entirely but it does have an interesting character.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly cloudy light orange with a white head with little lacing. The nose is light spice. The taste is spice with no bitterness apart from the spice. The body is lager, which is a welcome change from the pumpkin ales.

bottle - This is a decent pumpkin beer with some good spice character. I did pick up some grainy alcohol in the flavor which I didnít expect at only 5.4% but it wasnít too bad. Light to medium body. Mildly sweet.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Lacking in aroma, but makes up it with a very smooth feeling. Not much in flavor, but hints of apple and spice. Really nothing "pumpkin" about it, but thatís a good thing if you donít really get into "pumpkin" flavored brews. Not very distinctive, but an easy to drink, smooth, unoffensive fall lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the 69th Annual Sister Bay, WI. Fall Fest, and dispensed to a fest mug that may have been orange, but seemed to display an orangey/gold color, with off white head froth, and some wavy lacing. The nose was light cookie, subtle pumpkin puree, and nice pie spicing, with a more pronounced cinnamon & clove scent. Light bodied, well carbonated, and hop bitterness that was on the low side. Decent enough fest faire.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is nutmeg and pumpkin pie. Taste is a tad bitter on the backend with a nice pumpkin flavor throughout. Has an aggressive carbonation in the mouth. Very nice.
