4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a dark amber color with a thick soapy head, from a 22oz bottle. Small flakes of malt poured into the glass which were suspended by the carbonation. Like another review says, I wouldn’t place this is a pumpkin ale, but rather some type of seasonal spicy ale. Even though I was hoping for a pumpkin flavor, I am not disappointed. This is a rather tasty brew. I did a side by side comparison to identify the aroma, the result: brown sugar. It feels excellent in the mouth...ummm....I mean the palate is very good. The aroma leads to a spicy, but not too spicy, just the right amount of spice taste. Ausgezeichnet Laurelwood.

Solid pumpkin; no complaints. More "meaty" than the usual varieties. Perhaps a bit less spice than expected. There’s nothing that calls this one out negatively or positively. Just solid.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a soft hazed over orange to brown color with a decent transparency about it. A one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving some light lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had a soft sweet pumpkin that warmed into a light bready pie/crust like character.
The taste was basically the same with a nice sticky sweet vanilla to caramel to pumpkin aftertaste. There was a quick sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a great sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me.
Overall, I say this was a really nice pumpkin ale that I would bang again.

22 oz bottle- Pours clear dark orange with a thin light tan head. Aroma is raw pumpkins and pumpkin spice, there is a bit of tartness reminiscent of cranberries. The taste is again real pumpkins mixed with the usual pumpkin spices, hops impart a dryness following through past the swallow. One of the few pumpkin beers that isn’t all spices, and i appreciate that, nice beer.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2011 Bottle enjoyed @ The BeerMongers... Poured amber, burnt orange with a beige head. Nose had light spice and some roast. The flavor contained roasted pumpkin squash. More squash forward than spice forward. Malt sugars and a balanced finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark copper coloured body with a nice amber glow and a rich, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of squash, pumpkin, allspice, cloves, canella and a lot of malty earthiness, with some light caramel sweetness. Medium to Full-bodied; Very rich squash and pumpkin flavours of malt noticeable with a big earthiness, some mild caramel and subdued sweetness and a touch of spices on the end with nutmeg and allspice the strongest. Overall, a nice and well flavoured pumpkin beer with the right amount of spices, a ton of malt, a good level of sweetness and of all things, a very nice rich body - made for a good sipping beverage. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon in Portland (PDX Airport Terminal D), Oregon on 28-September-2013 for US$5.95 sampled at home in Washington on 18-October-2013.
