3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I am very impressed with the aroma of this beer. From the bottle it is like Campari and soda; from the glass it takes on a hoppiness and when taken in closer the aroma exhibits malts, elegant womenís perfume and spices. The flavor of this beer is unique to me as this is my first pumpkin flavored beer (figured itís Halloween time so why not). Sort of hard to put a handle on, still a lot like Campari but with some tangy spice elements; perhaps the standard hops and malt elements should be more prevalent to make it seem less like a high-quality wine cooler. In fact, I donít like its texture at all - carbonation is present but seems stifled, and there is a watered-down syrupiness. One thing that strikes me is that pumpkin doesnít seem to figure too strongly anywhere in this beer - since this is claimed to taste like pumpkin pie Iíve decided to deduct 2 Overall points based on this. Note: if you're in Milwaukee I'd recommend this brewpub - truly a fun place with a sense of class, and many great brews to say the least.

Pours amber with a small Head. Nose is heavy with pumpkin and spice... Very strong scent. Taste is almost too overpowering with pumpkin spices. I know thatís what this is marketed as, so I wonít discredit for that. Anyone looking for liquid pumpkin pie wonít be disappointed.

Smell is pumpkin and spice. Pour is a clearish amber. Taste is pumpkiny with some malt. Not the best after taste. Average beer.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In bottle. Nice orangey amber color, smells like pumpkin pie spices. I felt this beer compromised itself by going for both a pumpkin and a spice flavor. I felt it ended up rather squash-y, with a weird zucchini flavor. Perhaps this means they just went all-out and added more pumpkiin than the others; if so, kudos for the effort, and just either add more or take out the cinnamon, please.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent body to this one is what stood out the most. Much better than the majority out there, aside from Dogfish Headís version. Pours a nice deep amber hue and the spices of pumpkin pie dance through my nose. A bit too sweet on the palate, but drinkable. Sad to see that the foam quickly clears soon after Iíve had my first sip. Hard time finding the hops in this one where the spice dominates. I understand it is lightly hopped, but perhaps a bit more to help balance out the sweetness.
