3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Clark St. Ale House, Chicago. Definitely tasted the pumpkin flavor, although the overall body is very light. I wish it had a little more malt to beef up the beer-- I guess it’s just a light lager with pumpkin flavor.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a hazy orange with a tiny white head yet has that constant carbonation like a glass of Sprite. Kind of an odd smell to it. pumpkin type spices, maybe cinnamon or apple pie even a bad potpourri smell. something very sweet and spicy about the aroma. Flavor is not that great, lots of nutmeg/ginger flavors. I may be biased ’cause I’m not a fan of ginger. Pumpkin, herbal flavors. Slight sweetness .Light body, thin mouthfeel, long finish taste stick with you but I don’t like it very much. Go try Dogfish Punkin’ Ale if you want a good pumpkin flavored beer.

This beer is ok. Some pumpkin in the aroma. Copper color. Flavor of sweet citrus and some spice. Little pumpkin. A bit astringent as it finishes. Good not great.

orange brown body has no head. The aroma is spicy with cinnamon and cloves. The flavor has a lot of cloves and a bit of pumpkin with a bit of honey.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark gold, with a decent off-white head. Lots of tiny little bits of stuff floating about. No lacing. Aroma is fairly nasty...like a bad aftershave. You can discern some spice, but whatever it is, it isn’t pleasing. Flavor is fairly flat, with some pumpkin (fresh pumpkin not pumpkin pie), maybe a bit of cinnamon, and some pepper. Palate is light-medium body, with a bit of spritz. Finishes slightly bitter and dry. Not particularly refreshing. Overall this was an interesting beer, but a disappointment for me.

aroma- pumpkin, cinnamon, brown sugar, grass. pours hazy gold. taste is very well balanced pumpkin, spice, brown sugar, with a clean lager finish. Not too sweet and light in body. i really enjoyed this pumpkin session beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange in color with a brown tinted head. Lightly spiced, and sweet aroma. The big and malty flavor holds the spices in check and the body makes this feel like a meal. One of my two favorites in the pumpkin beer category.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange color with a white head...nothing too impressive. Strong pumpkin and clove aroma with some pepper, nutmeg and ketchup? Bready flavor as well as the obvious pumpkin and sweet malt with a dry finish.

** 12 oz bottle. Very nice, spicy nose. The taste was fruity without being overly pumpkiny and had a nice balance of spiciness. Not so much my style but I actually really enjoyed drinking this one.

12oz bottle from Brewmasters in Wilson. Golden brown hue, normal clarity with off-white fully diminishing head. Virtually no lacing. Nutmeg & spice on the nose. Light citrus, pumpkin & alcohol up front, light citrus & nutmeg on the finish. Oily texture with flat carbonation on the palate. It was okay.
