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.

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.

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.

Pours a lighter copper color with off-white head. Pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, caramel malt, and a light sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a pumpkin pie spice note. Smooth and easy drinking.

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.

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.
